Somerset, NJ & Portland, OR (PRWEB) December 16, 2013
Lumeta Corporation, the leader in network situational awareness, and Tripwire, Inc., a leading global provider of risk-based security and compliance management solutions, announced today that Lumeta has joined the Tripwire Technology Alliance Partner (TAP) Program. Through the TAP program, the two companies will engage in technology development through the use of common APIs and custom development efforts to create a joint solution. The partnership will integrate Lumeta’s IPsonar product suite for network discovery with Tripwire IP360, a vulnerability management solution, to enable bidirectional, synchronous information exchange for improved protection and reduced support overhead.
Security requires a layered approach, beginning with a solid foundational knowledge of the assets that make up the enterprise network. Combining this with vulnerability management and other security controls provides a more complete view for risk management. Security can complement and enable customers’ business objectives.
IPsonar provides best-in-class network situational awareness enabling customers to close the gap on network visibility and gain comprehensive network intelligence on every connection, device and leak across the enterprise. Tripwire IP360’s proactive vulnerability management applies advanced analytics to prioritize vulnerabilities – flagging the greatest risks so security teams can make quick, quality decisions within a rapidly changing threat landscape. The integrated solution will offer depth and breadth of discovery and coverage, and will allow enterprises and government agencies to maintain an optimal security and compliance posture amidst constant network change.
“As a result of this collaboration, customers will be able to reduce operational risk and gain control of IP-enabled systems through the automated discovery, identification and protection of network assets that had previously represented security vulnerabilities,” said Matt Webster, CTO at Lumeta. “Our alliance represents a natural fit to deliver a solid, secure and reliable foundation to our shared clients and partners. The joint solution will deliver unparalleled protection against security vulnerabilities across a comprehensive view of the enterprise network.”
“Integration with IPsonar will make it possible for mutual customers and partners to obtain better risk management, security and compliance across the entire enterprise network,” said Rod Murchison, Vice President of Product Management and Technology Alliances at Tripwire. “The combined solution extends the reach of IPsonar’s network discovery with the depth of IP360’s device profiling to deliver unparalleled visibility into vulnerability risk.”
The joint solution will be scalable to the largest networks in the world and, therefore, ideally suited for complex, globally-distributed networks.
Under the terms of the Alliance partnership, Lumeta and Tripwire will also team with shared channel partners and systems integrators to deliver enhanced risk management protection in select customer accounts.
