Tripwire Configuration Manager SaaS Solution Delivers Enhanced Cloud Security
Tripwire, a global cybersecurity solutions provider protecting the world’s leading organizations, announced enhanced security support in the cloud with Tripwire Configuration Manager. Tripwire’s latest SaaS application aims to help organizations effectively manage security across complex cloud environments.
“As companies expand further into the cloud, there continues to be an influx of simple mistakes, such as misconfigurations, that can expose organizations to significant security, privacy and regulatory risks”
Tripwire Configuration Manager centralizes the configuration monitoring of cloud assets with a single SaaS-based console. This application also helps alleviate the pressures on security teams, with an option for automated remediation. By enforcing security policies, Tripwire Configuration Manager’s automated remediation feature will reset a configuration that is out of compliance to its previous state, reducing the time that it is vulnerable to attack and offloading time-consuming manual tasks.
As technology environments shift and the security landscape evolves, Tripwire Configuration Manager reduces the complexities of cloud security. Configuration assessments immediately alert to any non-compliant settings that do not meet company policy or industry standards, such as the Center for Internet Security (CIS) AWS Foundations Benchmarks, with assigned risk scores to prioritize the most business-critical issues.
“As companies expand further into the cloud, there continues to be an influx of simple mistakes, such as misconfigurations, that can expose organizations to significant security, privacy and regulatory risks,” said Tim Erlin, vice president of product management and strategy at Tripwire. “Secure configuration management is a basic, but critical security practice, and the cloud is no exception for applying that security control. An overlooked misconfiguration can expose cloud data to the public internet, making it all too easy for attackers to quickly find the gaps in a company’s security, which can lead to devastating and costly impacts on a brand and its customers.”
