New Enhanced Version of Tripwire for Routers and Switches - Tripwire for Network Devices 2.0 – is the Device-Neutral, Multiple-Platform Solution for Enterprise Integrity Assurance

Tripwire Inc., the Data Integrity Assurance Company, today announced that version 2.0 of its award-winning Tripwire® for Routers and Switches, now named Tripwire® for Network Devices will be available for shipping on June 6, 2002. The latest offering broadly extends the value to enterprise customers by providing expanded support to today’s most popular network devices for maximum coverage in addition to added management features, customizable commands and scalability for the needs of any organisation.

“Tripwire for Network Devices delivers the same value for network managers that Tripwire software has offered systems managers for years - a solution that tells IS staffs when critical static information has been altered,” said Eric Hemmendinger, research director for security and privacy at Aberdeen Group. “Now IS buyers can obtain integrity verification and the ability to quickly restore critical configuration data for the broad range of switches, routers and system platforms that are the backbone of the enterprise's business-critical infrastructure.”

Tripwire for Network Devices 2.0 assures integrity and security across a broad list of industry routers, switches and firewalls by providing automatic notification of changes to configuration files, automating the monitoring of critical network devices and enabling manual or automatic remediation when an undesired change occurs. Change, whether accidental or intentional, can waste hours of valuable time and result in costly downtime for call centres, e-commerce, supply-chain, and other critical transaction systems. Tripwire for Network Devices 2.0 increases uptime and reduces business risk by capturing forensic evidence, ensuring adherence with change management processes and providing a means of maintaining the operational integrity of distributed devices. Thousands of devices can be easily managed from a single console.

“With enterprise network complexity increasing and IT resources decreasing, keeping a company’s critical network infrastructure up and running and secure is becoming a growing issue. The consequence many companies face is a widespread network outage resulting in a loss of revenue and productivity,” said W. Wyatt Starnes, founder, president and CEO of Tripwire. “Tripwire for Network Devices 2.0 provides IT with a powerful product to ensure that accidental or intentional errors don’t compromise critical resources, or a company's bottom line.”
