BW: Tripwire is First Major Security Company to Offer Open Source Linux Product

Feb 29, 2000, 22:09 (1 Talkback[s])

"Tripwire Partners with Caldera Systems, Red Hat and SGI to Bring Integrity Assessment to Linux and Open Source Communities"

"Tripwire, Inc., the leading provider of integrity assessment solutions, today announced its adoption of the open source model for its flagship Tripwire(TM) product on the Linux operating system. To facilitate the adoption and deployment process, Tripwire is partnering with Caldera Systems, Red Hat (NASDAQ:RHAT) and SGI (NYSE:SGI), to tightly integrate the software into their Linux-based solutions. Further, Tripwire has decided to host its development efforts on VA Linux Systems' (NASDAQ:LNUX) SourceForge(tm), the world's largest open source development center. These initiatives make Tripwire the first mainstream security company to open its source code to the world."

"Tripwire is not a stranger to making source code available to its users. Since 1992, source code for Tripwire's Academic Source Release (ASR) has been widely downloaded and is actively used by more than 300,000 users. In 1999, Tripwire released a significantly enhanced commercial version, supporting major UNIX platforms, Windows NT and Linux. Until now, these commercially supported products were available in binary form, and the Linux product was freely downloadable to users."
