Tripwire Chosen for Oregon County Schools


Tripwire, a leader in configuration assessment and change auditing for physical and virtual environments, today announced that Gwinnett County Public Schools has selected Tripwire Enterprise to help it ensure control of IT configurations across its systems. Gwinnett's IT team selected Tripwire Enterprise to ensure system availability and compliance to its change control processes.

"Gwinnett County citizens highly value the important role education plays in building a thriving, diverse community and strongly support the school system's pursuit of excellence," said Scott Futrell, CIO at Gwinnett County Public Schools. "For this reason, we chose Tripwire as our de facto standard for ensuring our IT systems attain and retain a known state. Tripwire has helped Gwinnett improve our change control processes, effectively supporting administrators, teachers and students in their pursuit of excellence in education through optimal system availability and reliability."

Tripwire Enterprise provides Gwinnett Public Schools with the ability to detect unauthorized changes to its systems, helping its IT staff to proactively avoid unplanned downtime. Gwinnett County IT staff was particularly interested in Tripwire's support for Active Directory and the ability to monitor it for changes. Undesired changes to directory services can cause serious problems including logon failure and account lockout, security and compliance-policy breaches, application failures, and service outages.
