Tripwire Enterprise brings together policy management, change management and file integrity monitoring under one easy-to-manage platform. With Tripwire Enterprise, administrators can use a combination of an agent-based and an agentless deployment to collect, assess and report on server, database, endpoint and network device configurations throughout the entire enterprise environment. This tool is also leveraged by a couple of key components, which include Asset View and Fast Track.
This product is software-based, so it must be installed on a server in the environment. Installation of the product itself is easy and is done by simply running an executable, which launches a cleanly organized setup wizard. At the completion of the wizard, the product installs all the necessary components, including the management console. After installation is complete, all management is done via the web-based management console, which we found to be well-organized and easy to navigate with a clean look and tab-top navigation structure. The other thing to note about the management console is the clean dashboard views. The dashboard is one of the first things that an administrator sees when they log into the console and it is loaded with a plethora of useful information, including authorized versus unauthorized changes, changes by application, and many other charts and graphs. This gives the administrator an instant view of what's happening and if anything needs immediate attention.
