Tripwire Inc. has announced expanded support for cloud environments with Tripwire Cloud Management Assessor (CMA).

The solution now features File Integrity Monitoring (FIM) capabilities for addressing publicly exposed data in the cloud, and its core secure configuration management functionality now supports all major cloud providers, including Google Cloud Platform.

"Tripwire is dedicated to helping organisations implement critical security controls in their environments, especially as these environments grow more complex with the adoption of hybrid and multi-cloud models," said Tim Erlin, VP of product management and strategy at Tripwire. "We've expanded our capabilities to help organisations keep their cloud environments properly configured and prevent inadvertent exposure of their data."

Tripwire CMA's new File Integrity Monitoring (FIM) capabilities allow organisations to discover publicly exposed cloud instances or "buckets." In light of several recent incidents where sensitive information was mistakenly left exposed on cloud servers, Tripwire CMA can be used to ensure buckets are properly configured and data is kept secure.

The new FIM capabilities currently cover AWS S3 and Azure Blob and provide change monitoring of files stored in the cloud, as well as providing alerts to public-facing files and flagging suspicious or 
unauthorized changes. Additionally, these capabilities provide actionable information for mitigating issues.
