Superior Integrity Monitoring: Getting Beyond Checkbox FIM

If File Integrity Monitoring (FIM) were easy, everyone would be doing it. Actually, it is pretty easy. It’s not exactly rocket science. Practically anyone with a modicum of Python, Perl or development skills can write an app or a script to gather the checksum of a file, compare it to a list or baseline, and tell you whether or not said file has changed.

Combining Monitoring Approaches For Well-Rounded FIM | Tips & Tricks Ep.2

Traditional, agent-based monitoring from Tripwire® Enterprise brings best-in-breed file integrity monitoring (FIM) to your organization’s IT infrastructure. In regular practice, an agent is deployed to a supported operating system to facilitate asset monitoring. But how do you enforce FIM on operating systems that have reached their end-of-life for support, or endpoints that aren’t able to have agents installed?

A Full Rainbow of Protection: Tripwire Is More than 'Just FIM'

Imagine an arc. Not just any arc. A rainbow. When we think of a rainbow, it conjures impressions of color, inspiration and even supernatural characteristics. Does your cybersecurity program long for a magical pot of gold at the end of a rainbow? With all the moving parts of cybersecurity, sometimes it seems like we are merely chasing rainbows. However, it doesn’t have to be that way.

Integrity: How It's More than Just Data Security and FIM

Integrity is a word thrown around a lot in the cybersecurity space. That’s not surprising. It is one of the three components that make up the CIA Triad, after all. However, the meaning and use of the word has been relatively limited in many security circles up until now. Let’s take a look at the security industry more broadly. In most conversations dealing with integrity, data security and File Integrity Monitoring (FIM) controls often end up being the primary focal areas.

How FIM Is More Than Just About Maintaining Compliance

The purpose of every security team is to provide confidentiality, integrity and availability of the systems in the organization. We call it “CIA Triad” for short. Of those three elements, integrity is a key element for most compliance and regulations. Some organizations have realized this and decided to implement File Integrity Monitoring (FIM). But many of them are doing so only to meet compliance requirements such as PCI DSS and ISO 27001.

Tripwire vs OSSEC

Effective cybersecurity is no longer relegated to deep-pocketed enterprises—a myriad of open source solutions can offer adequate protection to the most cash-strapped of organizations. That said, there are some capabilities free just won't get you, but how critical are they in the grand scheme of cyber resilience and are they worth the price tag? Tripwire and OSSEC are two popular solutions on opposite sides of this spectrum; let's see how they stack up.

File Integrity Monitoring (FIM): Your Friendly Network Detective Control

Lateral movement is one of the most consequential types of network activity for which organizations need to be on the lookout. After arriving at the network, the attacker keeps ongoing access by essentially stirring through the compromised environment and obtaining increased privileges (known as “escalation of privileges”) using various tools and techniques. Attackers then use those privileges to move deeper into a network in search of treasured data and other value-based assets.

What Will You Choose - Big Brand or the Most Intelligent FIM & Change Control Solution on the Market?

There are two things that you might consider when selecting a File Integrity Monitoring (FIM) and Change Control solution – 1) Depth of useable features such as efficiency in suppressing change noise and 2) Brand recognition. Some organizations might choose smart features such as powerful, closed-loop intelligent change control over the brand while some might focus on the brand name at the risk of not paying as much attention to the software’s really useful features and capabilities.
