									Tripwire Strengthens Industry-Leading
Configuration Auditing Solution
Tripwire Enterprise 7.6 expands coverage and adds innovative workflow options for IT security and compliance solution.

Portland, OR - August 19, 2009 - Tripwire®, the leader in data center compliance and
infrastructure management, today announced availability of the newest version of its
flagship product, Tripwire® Enterprise 7.6. Broadening the scope of Tripwire’s change
auditing and configuration assessment solution, Tripwire Enterprise 7.6 adds support for
64-bit consoles, expands coverage for its real-time agents and adds workflow options that
provide a prioritized, risk-based approach to detecting and reconciling changes to critical
IT systems.

"Tripwire offers the broadest and deepest solution for change auditing and configuration
assessment, and maintaining that distinction is important to us," said Dan Schoenbaum,
Chief Operating Officer of Products for Tripwire. "With this current release of Tripwire
Enterprise 7.6, we have added compelling new and enhanced features including 64-bit
consoles that support the needs of our largest enterprise customers, and new workflow
options that deliver a more manageable and efficient user experience."

Tripwire Enterprise 7.6 helps IT achieve and maintain a secure and compliant state with
new features and functionality including:

         Support larger implementations with 64-bit consoles: New 64-bit consoles for
          Windows 2008, RHEL 5.2 and SUSE 10.2 dramatically increase the number of
          Tripwire agents that can be concurrently managed from the Tripwire Enterprise
          Console, allowing even the largest of enterprises to monitor their critical
         Additional Support for Real-Time Agents: Real-time agents can not only detect
          changes as they happen, but can also identify which users made these changes.
          Tripwire Enterprise 7.6 adds real-time monitoring for several additional 64-bit
          platforms including Windows 2003 Server, Windows 2008 Server and Windows
          Vista SP1, allowing real-time security and detection.
         Policy-Based Filtering: A unique capability that allows users to "sort" detected
          changes by their criticality or potential to cause harm, allowing users to focus on
          remediating the riskiest changes to their systems and take a risk-based approach to
          change management.
         Expanded security and regulatory policies: Additional polices and standards to
          support Tripwire’s already impressive library of more than 170 security and
          regulatory policies for different hardware platforms, applications and operating
          systems. Not only is this a greater number of out-of-the box policies than any
          other compliance solution, but because Tripwire has 25 percent more CIS
          certifications than any other vendor, each policy has the depth to handle the most
          stringent configuration security needs.
         Integration with the Tripwire Customer Center: Tripwire Enterprises’ User Home
          Pages now provide customers with direct access to the Tripwire Customer Center:
          a centralized set of powerful self-help tools for Tripwire Enterprise administrators
          and managers. Included is a complete library of "how-to" documents and videos,
          online support, a fully indexed knowledge base, a dynamic user forum and an
          interactive developer’s blog.

Additionally, Tripwire Enterprise 7.6 has included features to improve the overall user
experience and functionality of the solution including improved, faster reporting with
new layouts; an updated user interface that streamlines and simplifies the command bar,
updates the look and feel, and improved overall product usability; and a number of
security enhancements and customer-requested features, including support for SHA-2
hashing standards, SNMP v3, and enhancements to overall data management.

Tripwire Enterprise 7.6 is available immediately for download.
