Understanding the Key Differences Between FIM and EDR

File integrity monitoring (FIM) and endpoint detection and response (EDR) are two cybersecurity solutions that are often foundational aspects of organizations’ security strategies. EDR is implemented in order to stop known and unknown threats at endpoints, often with advanced functions such as behavioral monitoring and analysis, antivirus protection, and threat response capabilities.

The Top 5 File Activity Monitoring Tools in 2024

Organizations must maintain control over sensitive data and prevent unauthorized access or file modifications. File activity monitoring software gives organizations the visibility and control they need to mitigate the risks of data breaches, insider threats, and compliance violations. These solutions provide valuable insights into who is accessing files, their actions, and when these activities are taking place.

What Is Log Management and Why you Need it

Thanks to the burgeoning supply chain, a host of IoT and work-from-home devices, and an expanding cloud presence, organizations are constantly ingesting new hardware into their IT environments. With each new line of code comes a fresh chance for a hidden vulnerability. With each unfound weakness, attackers gain one more opportunity to gain a foothold in the organization and compromise sensitive assets.

File Integrity Monitoring vs. Integrity: What you need to know

Using security tools to monitor activities on IP based endpoints and the resulting changes that occur pose one of the most formidable challenges to security and regulatory compliance efforts, thanks to its potential to disrupt established security measures and protocols. Compliance frameworks, such as PCI DSS and NIST 800-53/SI-7, require organizations in every sector to maintain a consistent and secure environment to meet regulatory standards. Integrity is a foundational piece of this puzzle.

5 Things to Consider Before Buying a File Integrity Monitoring (FIM) Solution

Imagine you’re on the tail end of installing a 100-line script. It’s five o’clock, and you’re ready to head out early for once. You run the startup script on a new server, and then – the fated error message. Something isn’t working, and only after painstakingly reviewing 67 lines of code do you realize you had the IP address wrong. This could have been prevented.

Tripwire Enterprise: Reimagining a Winning Product

How many security products does it take to monitor an organization? Even a small company often finds itself working with multiple monitoring tools to gain visibility into its security posture. This creates multiple blind spots, as a security analyst needs to jump between different tools with different formats and configurations to research a security incident. Adding to this problem is that the reporting from each tool usually differs, making the creation of a uniform report a chore.

How FIM Protects Assets in a Borderless World

Recent advancements in the digital landscape have led to a new kind of paradigm, one where enterprise perimeters are no longer clearly defined or limited. The rapid uptake of remote working, cloud, and IoT led to these prominent shifts, resulting in users, applications, and data no longer residing exclusively within the perimeters of the enterprise. This has led to enterprise perimeters becoming “borderless”.

Tripwire Enterprise Use Cases - Advanced Monitoring

Many people remember where they were during historic events. Whether it is a personal, or a public occurrence, it’s just human nature to remember these significant moments. Every profession also has its share of memorable events. In medicine, those who were in the profession will remember where they were when they heard about the first heart transplant or the discovery of a cure for a particular disease. In cybersecurity, there are similar events that stick in the mind.

FIM & SCM: How they work together

IT environments in businesses are often volatile. The value of hardware might depreciate over time. There is constant evolution in the world of software. Existing configurations go through a variety of transitions. While some of these updates are permitted since they are part of the organization's regular patching cycle, others raise red flags because they appear out of nowhere.
