Tripwire for Servers Certified "Ready for Tivoli Software" - Integrates Essential Integrity Assurance Capabilities into IBM's Security Management Software Solution

Tripwire Inc., the data integrity assurance company, today announced that Tripwire for Servers version 3 now integrates with IBM Tivoli Risk Manager and Tivoli Enterprise Console and is validated as "Ready for Tivoli Software." With this interoperability and certification, customers can confidently deploy Tripwire within their enterprise environments to achieve greater control, security, and availability.

Tripwire joins the growing list of companies that are working with IBM to build interoperable solutions that extend the reach of IBM's autonomic security management software, IBM Tivoli Risk Manager. Having met IBM's stringent certification standards, Tripwire improves the manageability of infrastructure integrity by enabling Tivoli users to automate event processing and act on system deviations with little or no user intervention required.

"We see data integrity as a foundational component of our customers' overall security and network management architecture," said Arvind Krishna, vice president of security products, Tivoli Software, IBM. "The integration of Tripwire for Servers' best of breed data integrity assurance capabilities into Tivoli enables our customers to achieve greater confidence in the security and availability of their enterprises."

"Maintaining systems in a high-confidence state is critical to overall network security and reliability," said Ian Tickle, channel manager for UK and Ireland at Tripwire. "Now, with "Ready for Tivoli Software" certification, Tripwire is providing joint customers with a fully integrated means of using data integrity assurance to maintain reliable, secure systems across the enterprise."

Tripwire's products enable rapid detection, diagnosis and remediation of issues that can compromise the security, availability and reliability of critical servers and network devices. Tripwire for Servers assures the integrity and security of data by notifying users if, when and how files and other data assets have drifted from a known, good state. This product can be paired with Tripwire Manager, a management console which enables secure, centralised management of enterprise-wide Tripwire for Servers installations.

IBM Tivoli Risk Manager enables organisations to centrally manage attacks, threats and exposures by correlating security information from intrusion detection systems, firewalls, anti-virus applications and other products that affect security, and then provides self-protecting, self-healing countermeasures to protect an enterprise proactively. The integrated security management capability of IBM Tivoli Risk Manager allows system administrators to easily monitor and assess security risks in real-time across an enterprise's multiple security checkpoints.


Tripwire for Servers and IBM Tivoli Risk Manager are currently available worldwide from Tripwire Inc. and IBM.
