Open Source Roots to Enterprise Security Leader
The first version of Tripwire was written by Gene Kim and Dr. Eugene Spafford at Purdue University in 1992 and released to the open source community. Since 1999 Tripwire Inc. has continued to innovate and expand on the platform to a complete suite of security solutions. Tripwire Enterprise combined with Tripwire Log Center and the new VIA platform help organizations manage incident detection, security policy enforcement, reduce the attack surface and automate regulatory compliance. Tripwire’s platform helps connect security to the business, providing visibility of an organization’s security and compliance stance while simultaneously automating complex security tasks, reducing overall risk.
