Tripwire Inc, a global cybersecurity solution provider, working with an aim to protect the world’s leading organizations, took a step ahead. On  June 30, 2020, it announced enhanced security support in the cloud with the Tripwire Configuration Manager. The company’s latest SaaS application brings security to most complex cloud environments.

Tripwire Configuration Manager utilizes a single SaaS-based console to centralize the configuration monitoring of cloud assets. Tripwire Configuration Manager enforces security policies that help trigger the automated remediation feature, thus resetting a configuration compliant to the previous state, helping reduce the time that is vulnerable for attack and offloading time-consuming manual tasks.

With the evolution of the time and security landscape, Tripwire Configuration Manager reduces the complexity of cloud security. It works in a way where it gives an immediate alert about any disregard for the company policies or industry standards (such as the Center for Internet Security (CIS) AWS Foundations Benchmarks).

“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,” he added.
