Tripwire, who was recognised by SC Magazine as one of the “Companies to Watch in 2001”, received its awards on April 23rd at the Infosec show at Olympia, London. These awards were selected by aggregating results of votes cast by the publication's readers and academy members, most of whom are information technology professionals seasoned in enterprise security.

"We are honoured that SC Magazines' readership has recognised the capabilities of Tripwire as being best of class in two separate categories", said Jean-Charles Barbou, Director of Europe for Tripwire. "In addition to its primary use as an infrastructure integrity technology, we are pleased that Tripwire is also successfully utilised by thousands of people for information security purposes such as intrusion detection."
