For those of you who have implemented Tripwire Enterprise,


a.       Is the team that designed its implementation (and implemented it) on your campus the same team that receives alerts?   What are these teams’ primary roles and responsibilities?

b.      For those of you who have Tripwire in production, what training did your teams take and, in retrospect, was it sufficient, etc.?

Thanks in advance to everyone who replies,

I can’t speak to implementation details as I left before we really got going, but the training we received from Tripwire (on-site) while I was at UC Boulder stands out as one of the best instances of vendor product training I have ever received.  Great instructor, excellent documentation, well thought-out scenarios, etc.  I wish all vendors had training like that.


This was probably 4-5 years ago, so I don’t know if it’s still true today.  Hopefully they have maintained that standard.
