At Source Conference in Boston last month, I sat down several times with Tripwire CTO Dwayne Melancon. Our discussion centered around his work with the development and engineering teams at Tripwire, their use of open source components, the future roadmap for Tripwire and Dwayne’s vision for placing business context around incident response. We start the discussion with an overview of Tripwire.
