Tripwire Partners with Caldera Systems, Red Hat and SGI to Bring Integrity Assessment to Linux and Open Source Communities
Portland, Ore., Feb. 29, 2000 - Tripwire, Inc., a leading provider of integrity assessment solutions, announced its adoption of the open source model for its flagship Tripwire product on the Linux operating system. To facilitate the adoption and deployment process, Tripwire is partnering with Caldera Systems, Red Hat and SGI to tightly integrate the software into their Linux- based solutions. Further, Tripwire has decided to host its development efforts on VA Linux Systems' SourceForge, a large open source development center. These initiatives make Tripwire the first mainstream security company to open its source code to the world.
"Our decision to create an open-source model for our Linux product coupled with our new partnerships with Caldera, Red Hat and SGI allows us to extend our award-winning integrity assessment capabilities across the thousands of additional Linux enterprises that are playing a key role in today's e-commerce and e-business markets," said W. Wyatt Starnes, Tripwire CEO, president and co- founder. "We are embracing our roots here and see this model benefiting all of our loyal users who have supported us by using Tripwire to build their infrastructures of trust throughout the past eight years."
The Tripwire Open Source project will go live during Q3, 2000, where users will be able to download the free Tripwire open source product. The newly available URL, www.tripwire.org, will evolve as a portal for the open source and the academic source communities to come together to innovate and support each other.
