When Purdue student Gene Kim and professor Gene Spafford teamed up to build the initial version of Tripwire back in 1992, little did they know their intrusion detection techniques would become industry standards for a $2.71 billion market in 2014, with growth estimates of $5.04 billion by 2019. Clearly the ever-rising threat of sophisticated cyber attacks and security breaches will only broaden the landscape for security solutions over time. Hackers are becoming increasingly clever; on top of this, vulnerabilities will keep surfacing and resurfacing in critical software components.
Tripwire Enterprise is geared towards large organizations with sizeable IT infrastructures in place. Unlike the free version, the enterprise offering is available for Windows, Linux, as well as other Unix variants such as Solaris and AIX. Technical support can be had via phone or email, and professional services is available on-call to assist in custom installations. Various other features abound in the enterprise version; for example, Tripwire Manager enables centralized management and reporting of multiple Tripwire installations.
In general, the IDPS requirements of larger corporate firms differ in that they need features such as multi-platform support, centralized control/reporting, advanced automation features, and professional support-- all which come standard with enterprise, but are noticeably absent in the open source version. Additionally, Tripwire Enterprise comes with bells and whistles targeted for corporate customers, such as out-of-the-box compliance policies for adherence to measures such as PCI and NIST.
Microsoft was founded in 1975 and has an incredible legacy of software that permeatesevery nook and cranny of computing. As you can imagine for a company over forty years old,they've moved on from a lot of things when they saw better opportunities. As they say, innovation doesn'talways follow a straight line.What follows is a nostalgic graveyard of sorts. This is a list of all the software, hardware, andservices we could find thatMicrosoft sunset at some point,without producing direct descendant follow-on versions that were a straightforward replacementfor the end-user.Many of these are remembered with fond memories!Some of these products were simply shut downand never heard from again.Some were were deprecated and had various features moved into adjacentsoftware platforms, leaving the old software to become obsolete and eventually unsupported.The products are broken out into specific categories, sorted by year of discontinuation.A lot of research went into creating this catalog, but as you can imagine,information can be hard to find about many of Microsoft's early applications -- especially thosefrom the 1970s and 1980s.Please contact us if you havemore items to add to the list, or discover inaccuracies. Thanks!This page is a work in progress and more products are being added constantly aswe work through our backlog of research and notes.Total: 346 Microsoft products shut down.Last updated December 17, 2019.Series: Microsoft Discontinued Product CategoriesBusiness (38)Communications (23)Creative (31)Developer (50)Education (41)Hardware (24)Operating Systems (15)Sites & Services (69)Utilities (11)Complete List of Microsoft Sunset Products (346)Retired Microsoft Business ProductsMicrosoft Chart (1984-1988)Microsoft Stat Pack (1989-1992)Microsoft Small Business Consultant (1989-1992)Microsoft Site Server (1996-1998)Microsoft Vizact (2000)Microsoft BackOffice Server (1994-2001)Microsoft Data Analyzer (2002)Microsoft Schedule Plus (1992-2003)Microsoft Business Scorecard Manager (2005-2006)Microsoft System Center Reporting Manager 2006 (2005-2006)Microsoft ProClarity Analytics Server (2006-2007)Microsoft ProClarity Desktop Professional (2006-2007)Microsoft ProClarity SharePoint Viewer (2006-2007)Microsoft Office Accounting (2008-2009)Microsoft Works (1987-2009)Microsoft Commerce Server (2000-2009)Microsoft Office PerformancePoint Server (2007-2009)Microsoft Content Management Server (2002-2009)Microsoft Customer Care Framework (2003-2009)Microsoft Money (1991-2010)Microsoft SharePoint Workspace/Office Groove (2006-2010)Windows Essential Business Server (2008-2010)Windows Home Server (2007-2011)Microsoft Forefront (2007-2013)FAST Search Platform (2008-2013)Microsoft InfoPath (2003-2014)Sunrise App (2015-2016)Microsoft Forecaster (2010-2016)Dynamics Retail Management System Store Operations (2006-2016)Dynamics RMS Headquarters (2006-2016)Microsoft Management Reporter (2004-2016)Dynamics Marketing (2014-2018)Adxstudio Portals (2015-2018)Microsoft Parature (2014-2018)Power BI Workspace Collections (2016-2018)Visio Services in SharePoint Online (2010-2019)Windows Business Scanning/Distributed Scan Management (2009-2019)Office Apps for Windows 10 Mobile (2015-2021) 2b1af7f3a8
