Trustwave Introduces File Integrity Monitoring In The Cloud

FIM checks for additions, modifications, or deletions of sensitive files or other stored data

CHICAGO (June 21, 2011) –Trustwave, a leading provider of information security and compliance solutions, today announced the release of its cloud-based file integrity monitoring (FIM) solution.

FIM checks for additions, modifications, or deletions of sensitive files or other stored data. FIM can inform business stakeholders of unauthorized system or application access and indicate the potential presence of malware or other malicious activity. Deploying FIM as an ongoing simple or intermediate control can help organizations minimize these risks to avoid a data breach.

As a cloud-based solution, Trustwave FIM reduces costs and takes the burden off customers because all configuration, monitoring and reporting is performed by Trustwave. There is nothing for an organization to manage or maintain on its own. With no hardware or management console to deploy, Trustwave FIM is a cost-effective solution for customers of any size – from small businesses with a few endpoint devices to the largest enterprises with thousands.

Acting as a watchdog, FIM provides an audit trail of what file resources were changed, added or deleted, helping organizations determine if such modifications were made outside of formal or regularly scheduled change or maintenance windows. FIM complements and extends other host monitoring tools including SIEM and anti-virus installations by explicitly detecting unauthorized changes to OS and application files and other system resources, which other host monitoring tools are not designed to do.

Trustwave FIM also helps meet specific compliance needs, addressing regulatory and internal compliance requirements. Specific to the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), Trustwave FIM addresses the requirement for file integrity monitoring and alerting (Req. 11.5).

“This solution is the most cost effective way for customers to get these critical security controls in place and address compliance requirements at the same time,” said Robert J. McCullen, chairman, president and CEO of Trustwave. “At the seemingly unending assortment of cyber attacks, FIM is an essential tool for early detection of a potential breach.”

About Trustwave Trustwave is a leading provider of on-demand and subscription-based information security and payment card industry compliance management solutions to businesses and government entities throughout the world. For organizations faced with today’s challenging data security and compliance environment, Trustwave provides a unique approach with comprehensive solutions that include its flagship TrustKeeper' compliance management software and other proprietary security solutions including industry leading SSL certificates and wildcard secure certificates.
