This version allows users to audit patch management processes for your IT system. It also adds a number of new configuration auditing policies that Tripwire says will significantly extend network visibility.
These policies are based on standards and benchmarks from NIST, CIS, DISA and Microsoft, as well as policies for specific regulations such as PCI, Sarbanes-Oxley, HIPAA, USGCB and NERC. In addition, CCM is now able to calculate compliance percentages that include superseded patches, which were typically overlooked by patch deployment tools.
Tripwire’s CCM discovers and audits the configuration of every device on your network, without installing any new software on the devices. The security software also monitors any changes in the configurations, and the impact of those changes on compliance with internal policies and external regulations. Auditing the configurations and patch status of IT systems are a key part of Tripwire’s platform for reducing security risk and ensuring policy compliance.
“Tripwire is the only security configuration management company that can offer both agent-based and agentless capabilities,” said Dwayne Melancon, chief technology officer for Tripwire. “With CCM 5.15, we’re able to offer customers new solutions around auditing the patch deployment process, as well as scan for a much broader range policies and systems to provide rapid results, enable stronger accountability, and increase confidence in the security and stability of your IT infrastructure.”
CCM 5.15 is Security Content Automation Protocol (SCAP) version 1.2 compliant and validation ready. Following Tripwire’s acquisition of nCircle, the CCM is now part of Tripwire’s portfolio of security solutions and version 5.15 is now available.
