Tripwire Announces Technology Partnership With CORE Security

Partnership provides threat and vulnerability risk management to mutual customers

PORTLAND, OREGON -- January 9, 2013 -- Tripwire, Inc., a leading global provider of risk-based security and compliance management solutions, and CORE Security, a leading provider of predictive security intelligence solutions, today announced a technology partnership and integration that provides comprehensive threat and vulnerability risk management to mutual customers. The integration unites vulnerability information with network topology from firewalls and routers, and then validates the vulnerability information and potential attack paths in live or simulated penetration tests. The collaboration is part of Tripwire's Technology Alliance Partner (TAP) program, designed to allow a wide variety of vendors to collaborate with Tripwire to deliver innovative security solutions.

"We are looking forward to building on our relationship with CORE Security," said Rod Murchison, vice president of product management and technology alliances for Tripwire. "Our integration with CORE Insight Enterprise makes it possible for enterprises to go beyond finding and fixing vulnerabilities to operating their vulnerability management programs at peak efficiency."

Large enterprises need to gather, analyze and prioritize an overwhelming amount of vulnerability and network topography data and combine it with cyberattack domain expertise in order to gain a comprehensive understanding of the security risks facing their most critical assets. To decrease the cost and complexity of risk-based security management, enterprises need the ability to effectively prioritize threats in the context of business, regulatory compliance and operational metrics.

The integration combines vulnerability information from Tripwire® IP360&trade with detailed exploit and network topology data from CORE Insight to model threat scenarios and enable vulnerability validation and proactive remediation. With this integration, mutual customers gain the ability to:

· Discover complex attack paths that expose vulnerability risks to other areas of the business.

· Validate vulnerability findings with directed simulation and/or live tests of exploitable conditions.

· Model the impact of remediation actions on the security posture of the business.

"The most common mistake organizations make is to take a reactive posture to imminent security threats to critical assets. Enterprises must go on the offensive by thinking like an attacker, and then they can preempt attacks rather than wait to deal with their consequences," said Eric Cowperthwaite, vice president of advanced security and strategy at CORE Security. "We are very pleased to partner with Tripwire and help organizations of all sizes better protect themselves against outside attacks through the use of our combined technologies and processes, providing an even stronger solution to this problem."
