March 4, 2019 – Tripwire, a provider of security and compliance solutions for enterprises and industrial organizations, announced the debut of its penetration (pen) testing and industrial cybersecurity assessment services. By ensuring the security of critical assets and identifying vulnerabilities, Tripwire is working to build upon and strengthen the security programs of its customers.

The Penetration Testing Assessment leverages cybersecurity experts who discover and then exploit vulnerabilities to assess the security of an organization’s IT environment. Similarly, the Industrial Cybersecurity Assessment provides specialized evaluation of vulnerabilities in industrial control system (ICS) environments, taking into account the operational technology (OT) requirements of utility, manufacturing, oil and gas, and critical infrastructure operators.

 

Tripwire Penetration Testing Assessments

Tripwire’s pen testing services cover the following areas to ensure critical assets are secure:

  • Network services and configuration
  • Web application
  • Wireless infrastructure
  • Client-side and internal infrastructure
  • Social engineering and physical security

To evaluate an organization’s security, Tripwire’s Penetration Testing Assessment examines how:

  • Authentication and data traffic flows throughout the network in order to establish the roles of various systems within the network
  • Different systems support the business functions of the organization
  • Communication moves between a system and its users, providing information needed to design protective control mechanisms

 

Tripwire Industrial Cybersecurity Assessment

To identify exposures in industrial environments, Tripwire’s team of security professionals review data from automated vulnerability scanners, proprietary tools and manual assessments. Vulnerabilities are then manually validated in order to determine:

  • If a vulnerability represents an actual exposure
  • How an exposure may impact systems on the network
  • If mitigating factors or prerequisites may prohibit a vulnerability from being exploited under certain conditions

Tripwire can assess the following for vulnerabilities without disrupting operations:

  • Energy management systems (EMS)
  • Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems
  • Real-time Control System (RCS) architecture
  • Distributed control systems (DCS)
  • Programmable logic controllers (PLCs)
  • Network devices
