July 31, 2018 – Tripwire, a global provider of security and compliance solutions for enterprises and industrial organizations, announced the debut of Tripwire Data Collector, a cybersecurity solution to provide visibility into vulnerabilities and changes within operational technology (OT) environments.
Tripwire Data Collector provides visibility of cyber risk through its ability to harvest asset data using native industrial protocols, standard IT protocols, and integrations with intermediary software applications. The solution gathers and assesses data from devices that have typically been inaccessible to security teams before, while still maintaining a no-touch approach to avoid disrupting operations.
To enhance the understanding of cyber risk, Tripwire Data Collector assesses OT networks and devices for vulnerabilities and secure configurations, and compliance with policies and industry standards. It then monitors environments for change, alerting users to cyber risks that could cause a disruption to operations.
Tripwire Data Collector is designed for industrial organizations, such as energy, utilities, manufacturing, chemicals and transportation. It natively supports Ethernet/IP CIP, Modbus TCP, SNMP and Web Retriever industrial protocols, and integrates with Rockwell FactoryTalk AssetCentre, MDT AutoSave, and Kepware KEPServerEX.
Tripwire Data Collector is the latest offering within Tripwire's Industrial Control System (ICS) Security Suite.
