Tripwire joins ISA Global Cybersecurity Alliance; releases Industrial Appliance line of cybersecurity hardware

January 14, 2020 - Tripwire, a provider of security and compliance solutions for enterprises and industrial organizations, has announced the launch of the Tripwire Industrial Appliance line of hardware for securing industrial environments. In addition, Tripwire has announced that it has joined the ISA Global Cybersecurity Alliance as a founding member. As a Belden company, Tripwire continues to build on the significant growth in industrial cybersecurity achieved over the past year.

Tripwire’s Industrial Appliance provides industrial organizations a one-box solution for gaining visibility into their operational technology (OT) networks through a passive asset discovery approach. The solution, embedded with Tripwire Industrial Visibility software, offers industrial and enterprise grade hardware, and will soon come with an option for bump-in-the-wire deployment capability designed for sensitive and large industrial environments without network disruption.

Tripwire is also expanding its Tripwire Industrial Visibility capabilities. Tripwire expects to release a new version of this software, featuring secure cloud capabilities, a user interface, and automatic threat intelligence updates, soon. The solution will also feature policies and zones management capabilities that allow users to set, control and edit firewall-like rules to determine allowable communications, and discovery and classification capabilities for gathering important device information such as vendor, model and operating system versions from a broad range of IoT devices.

In becoming a founding member of ISA Global Cybersecurity Alliance (ISAGCA), Tripwire will participate in creating initiatives to increase industry awareness, creating education and certification programs, and advocating for sensible cybersecurity approaches with regulatory bodies and world governments.

Tripwire’s industrial cybersecurity 2019 highlights include a partnership with Baker Hughes. Under the agreement, Nexus Controls, a Baker Hughes business, will integrate Tripwire’s industrial cybersecurity capabilities into their SecuritySTsolution aimed at achieving safe, reliable, and predictable plant and process operations in critical infrastructure environments.

Earlier in the year, Tripwire launched Industrial Cybersecurity Assessment services, which provide specialized evaluation of vulnerabilities in industrial control system (ICS) environments, taking into account the OT requirements.
