Founded in 1997, Cimcor Inc. is an industry leader in developing innovative security, integrity and compliance software solutions. The firm is on the front lines of global corporate, government and military initiatives to protect critical IT infrastructure and has consistently brought IT integrity innovations to market.
When Cimcor was started, it had a focus on process automation and control. The company was responsible for creating and implementing mission-critical applications in both the manufacturing sector and utilities. It identified the need for corporations to ensure that critical systems continue to operate appropriately, despite cyber threats or even human error. The CimTrak Integrity product line was created in response to this identified need. Over the years, Cimcor has expanded the scope of its product line beyond manufacturing & utilities to meet the needs of the broader enterprise and rapidly growing cloud infrastructures. Its vision is straight forward; to detect change throughout the enterprise. However, the implementation of this vision is quite complicated. Its dedicated team of engineers has created the most advanced integrity monitoring system in the world. Its next-generation file/system integrity monitoring product that goes far beyond the standard detection of other tools in its marketplace focuses not only on change detection but also on maintaining system uptime. Powerful features such as selfhealing/remediation capabilities, reinforce the company’s commitment to not only providing information about changes to your IT infrastructure but helping you manage it proactively.
An Integrated Solution
As a comprehensive security, integrity and compliance solution, CimTrak is easy to deploy and scales to meet the needs of the largest of global networks. With an automated detection process, flexible response options, and auditing capabilities, CimTrak is a powerful compliance, information assurance, and security tool. CimTrak provides total system device and integrity monitoring. Organizations use the CimTrak Integrity Suite to monitor their servers, workstations, network devices, active directory/directory services, databases, POS systems, Docker/Container Security, and cloud security, for unexpected change.
The elite team of Cimcor is led by its President and CEO, Robert E. Johnson. Robert is an inventor and has led the development of several patented and patent-pending technologies. As a result of his passion for technology, he has authored numerous articles, contributed to books about technology, and developed several commercial software packages. He has appeared on CNN, World Business Review, and Inside Indiana Business as well as Bloomberg Radio.
Actively involved in the community, he has served on numerous boards including the Purdue Technology Center of Northwest Indiana, the Methodist Hospital Foundation, Board of Advisors for Purdue University Northwest Computer Information Technology department, the advisory board of the Department of Computer Information Systems for Indiana University Northwest, and Board of Advisors for Westwood College.
Mr. Johnson’s contributions to security and innovation have been commended and written into the Protecting Critical IT Infrastructures “The CimTrak Integrity Suite monitors and protects a wide range of physical, network, cloud and virtual IT assets in real-time while providing detailed forensic information about infrastructure changes.”

Real-time Integrity Monitoring
Cimcor, Inc. has a patent on real-time integrity monitoring with remediation capabilities. CimTrak has been developed by its talented engineers. Its tech stack is centered around C/C++, Angular, and Go. All of its communications and data at rest is encrypted and compressed. The company uses FIPS 140-2 certified cryptographic methods. In addition, all communication is encrypted via TLS 1.2. When communicating with external devices, Cimcor uses a variety of secure protocols including SSH V2. This multi-protocol support allows the company to connect and monitor a range of servers, network devices. Its focus on application portability has enabled Cimcor to tightly monitor Windows, Linux, Solaris, AIX, MacOS, and HP-UX. There are facilities to monitor databases, Active Directory, LDAP, and a variety of network devices such as CISCO, Juniper, Palo Alto, Checkpoint, and more. It even supports the monitoring of cloud services such as Amazon AWS, Google GCP, Microsoft Azure, Docker and Kubernetes.
Two Major Shifts are yet to Come
Cimcor envisions two major shifts in the enterprise IT space. It expects a continued shift of IT infrastructures into the cloud and an increase in hybrid cloud/brick-and-mortar infrastructures. The other shift is the dramatic increase in IOT and Industrial Internet of Things (IIOT) devices. CimTrak is uniquely positioned to help protect assets both within the enterprise and in the cloud.
“CimTrak works great. It is easy to use and the support team is fantastic.”

“What I like about CimTrak is that it is so easy to set up. Within a half-hour, we were up and running, with Tripwire®, which I’ve worked with in past organizations, it was pretty intense to set up. We looked at a few others. Many didn’t offer the same benefits. They are nothing like CimTrak.”
