Market Leaders Deliver One Solution to Secure Critical Data at Network and Server Levels

Tripwire Inc., the leading provider of data and networking integrity (DNI) solutions, and Recourse Technologies, the leading supplier of threat management solutions, today announced an industry first technology partnership to deliver a comprehensive network- and host-based intrusion detection solution that provides customers with a robust defense strategy to detect and prevent network and server attacks.
