Tripwire, a leading global provider of security and compliance solutions for enterprises and industrial organizations, announced the expansion of Tripwire ExpertOps to include vulnerability management as a managed service.
With this addition, organizations with limited in-house cybersecurity resources can take advantage of the Tripwire ExpertOps service to maintain a strong foundation of security, from vulnerability management (VM) to security configuration management (SCM) and file integrity monitoring (FIM).
Tripwire ExpertOps reduces the workload and complexity of managing critical security controls through personalized consulting and managed services. The new ExpertOps VM capabilities leverage the industry-leading capabilities of Tripwire IP360, the company’s enterprise-class vulnerability management solution. Tripwire’s VM capabilities offer a comprehensive view of vulnerability risks along with actionable reporting and recommendations.
Tripwire’s vulnerability management is backed by comprehensive coverage of more than 200,000 conditions (including vulnerabilities, configurations, applications and operating systems) and timely vulnerability intelligence through the Tripwire Vulnerability and Exposure Research Team (VERT).
Offering both agentless and agent-based capabilities, Tripwire extends across hybrid environments, including physical, virtual, public and private cloud, and containerized environments. In addition to discovering and profiling network assets, Tripwire combines business asset values with vulnerability scores to prioritize security risks in the context of customer businesses.
Tripwire ExpertOps provides personalized consulting from trained experts and hands-on tool management for compliance and critical asset security. It augments in-house security teams with ongoing support, guidance and customized reporting, and provides insights when security incidents occur. The services also include executive-level reports indicating status toward security goals and objectives and insight into areas of improvement.
“We’ve expanded our managed services capabilities to ease the workload of increasingly strained security teams,” said Tim Erlin, vice president of product management and strategy at Tripwire.
“The widening skills gap and continued increase in cybersecurity threats makes the job of the security professionals increasingly demanding. Tripwire ExpertOps has helped manage secure configurations for organizations lacking the resources to do this in-house, and now these organizations can take advantage of the service for vulnerability management.”
