PAS and Tripwire form partnership for automation technology security

Mary Page Bailey

PAS, Inc. (Houston; www.pas.com), a provider of software for process safety, cybersecurity and asset reliability for the energy, power and process industries worldwide, and Tripwire, Inc. (Portand, Oreg.; www.tripwire.com), a global provider of risk-based security and compliance management solutions, have announced a technology partnership and integration. The partnership is part of the Tripwire NERC Alliance Network Program that has been designed to foster collaboration on critical infrastructure compliance and security solutions to help companies efficiently and effectively achieve NERC CIP compliance.
 
The integration between the PAS Integrity Software SuiteTM and Tripwire NERC Solution Suite will provide mutual energy customers with automation software that drastically reduces the time and resources required to collect audit evidence. The integration brings a consistent approach to the management and maintenance of secure configurations across a wide range of devices including Industrial Control Systems (ICS), SCADA, Microsoft Windows and Windows Servers.
 
“The combination of PAS and Tripwire technologies allows us to offer our customers a powerful solution,” said Mark Carrigan, vice president of technology at PAS. “Automating the collection of configuration information for all critical assets in energy organizations saves precious resources, improves compliance, reduces human error and, in addition, dramatically reduces cyber security risks.”
