More disruption and uncertainty for Tripwire® customers as company is acquired by Belden (see link below for more)


It's been a bumpy ride for Tripwire® users over the last few years with an unrelenting series of acquisitions, mergers and buyouts. The company has now been sold on from the previous owners - VC speculators Thoma Bravo - to cabling giant Belden.

Customers have been telling us for some time now that they were struggling for any kind of consistent account management and support continuity. Unfortunately it seems likely that this could easily deteriorate further with another round of workforce integration, line manager changes and yet more regional, divisional and structural changes.

But it doesn't have to be like that - NNT have offered a Tripwire Replacement Program for the last few years now and here is a sample of quotes we have received from ex-Tripwire customers who have successfully switched to NNT.

“NNT offered us a solution and price that was hard to ignore. The combination of excellent software and their super support has allowed us to implement a solution that saves us thousands of dollars in annual running costs compared to Tripwire®”

Don Bromley, Systems Manager, Universal Studios

“Tripwire® were already known to us but NNT were a relative newcomer, one we came across via a Google search, and I can honestly say we have never looked back.”

David McKnight, Director of Data and Network Security

“Based on a recommendation from our Sister Company jetBlue, we decided to look at NNT as a possible alternative to Tripwire®. As a result, we now have a solution that ticks all the boxes, is much easier to use and way less expensive.”

Julian Cortez, Live TV

“Initially, back in 2010, we were recommended Tripwire®’s solution but we soon found it to be an over-priced option and we were not impressed with the service we were receiving.

The differences between Tripwire® and NNT were extremely clear to see. Firstly, NNT was very responsive from the outset and committed to everything we needed to go live with the solution immediately. Four years later, I’m pleased to say our relationship with NNT is as strong today as it was when we first started using their service. Their support is brilliant and they’ve always had a fantastic response time to any of our queries. In fact on one occasion during an audit, an assessor raised an issue so we decided to email NNT whilst the assessor was still with us. He was blown away that that within five minutes we had someone on the phone and everything had been resolved.”

IT Manager UK Based Call Center

“We wanted a flexible solution that was able to tick all the PCI boxes for us but also gave us additional benefits such as enhanced troubleshooting and improved management of our systems. We ran detailed evaluations and side-by-side comparisons for a number of the leading solutions and, put simply, we chose NNT because they offered the features we needed, their support was excellent throughout and they offered us a very competitive price.”
