Blackboard's business need is to track configuration changes across mission-critical infrastructure, implement automated detective controls to support IT security and compliance strategies and increase maturity of change management and compliance practices to meet business growth demands. Blackboard chose Tripwire to overcome these challenges. Tripwire Enterprise provides a single point of control for all change occurring across distributed IT infrastructure, encompassing servers, network devices, firewalls, and desktops. Tripwire enables an automated method for monitoring change and continuously alerts IT staff to change issues requiring further investigation. The results were faster response to potential service, increased availability and security and proof of compliance with critical COBIT objectives through automated change controls.
