Tripwire Data Collector Uncovers Blind Spots in Industrial Cybersecurity


New software solution provides enhanced visibility into operational
technology environments

, a leading global provider of security and compliance solutions
for enterprises and industrial organizations, today announced the debut
of Tripwire Data Collector, a new cybersecurity solution to provide
enhanced visibility into vulnerabilities and changes within operational
technology (OT) environments.

Tripwire Data Collector provides enhanced visibility of cyber risk
through its unique 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

"Industrial organizations understand the need to manage cyber risk in
their increasingly connected OT environments, but they often struggle to
gain the visibility needed to manage that risk," said Gabe Authier,
senior product manager at Tripwire. "We built Tripwire Data Collector
with expanded industrial protocols and integrations so operators can
more easily get a proper view of their OT networks and uncover risks
that may have been lurking in blind spots."

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 ideal 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.
