Rkneal Partners With Tripwire

Rkneal to integrate Tripwire Enterprise into the Verve Security Center to help customers achieve NERC CIP compliance

Rkneal, Inc., a leader in industrial automation and cyber security for the energy and power industries, has officially announced a technology partnership and solution integration with Tripwire, Inc., a leading provider of end point protection and response, security and compliance solutions used by over 9,000 organizations, including more than half of the Fortune 500.

The partnership is part of the Tripwire NERC Alliance Network program. The NERC Alliance Network has been designed to foster collaboration on critical infrastructure compliance and security solutions that help companies efficiently and effectively achieve NERC CIP compliance. The alliance includes solution providers whose offerings meet Tripwire’s high standards for technology.

The integration between Tripwire Enterprise® and the Rkneal Verve Security Center will provide mutual energy customers with automated software solutions to continuously monitor system changes and deploy a defense in depth strategy to protect mission critical assets.

“Many of our customers have been using Tripwire for years, so the decision to integrate Tripwire Enterprise into the Verve Security Center allows us to leverage their current infrastructure,” said Adam Brewer, Director of Business Development. “The fact that both our organizations have been assisting with NERC CIP compliance since the standards emerged was also a huge plus.”

The Verve Security Center is a vendor agnostic security suite that consolidates antivirus, application whitelisting, change & configuration management, security information & event management (SIEM), patch management, vulnerability assessments, intrusion detection and backup management technologies into a unified management console. Each layer of Verve was carefully designed to detect, prevent and respond to ICS cyber attacks. At the same time, it automates internal and regulatory compliance reporting.

Tripwire Enterprise is a security configuration management (SCM) suite that provides fully integrated solutions for policy, file integrity and remediation management. Tripwire Enterprise helps IT security, compliance, and IT operations teams rapidly build a strong foundation of security throughout their IT infrastructure by reducing the attack surface, increasing system integrity and delivering continuous compliance. Tripwire Enterprise integrates with a wide range of enterprise applications making it possible for organizations to quickly detect and respond to cyber attacks.
