How we are different

Tripwire is built on a foundation of innovation and deep security expertise. While Tripwire’s founder, Gene Kim, was a graduate student at Purdue University, he created an initial version of the software in 1992 and pioneered many techniques still used in intrusion detection.

With widespread support from corporate, education, and government security professionals, Tripwire, Inc. was founded in 1997 to bring these innovations to the commercial market. In 2000, Tripwire contributed source code to the open source community to enable Open Source Tripwire— a tool that remains in use today. Tripwire continues to invest heavily in innovation and holds over 20 security innovation patents.
