Company Launches Version R13-3, Rebranded to Support the Network of Tomorrow
CHATHAM, N.J., Oct. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Tufin Technologies today unveiled its vision for Security Policy Orchestration and launched version R13-3 of the Tufin Orchestration Suite™. Security Policy Orchestration defines a new paradigm for the automated implementation of network infrastructure changes. With Security Policy Orchestration, Tufin customers can automate network layer change processes, enabling them to accelerate service and application delivery and increase IT agility, while maintaining security and compliance throughout the network. Tufin's broader vision has been formulated following in-depth analysis of industry trends, input from its wide customer base, and input from its growing partner ecosystem.
"Security Policy Orchestration goes far beyond the traditional configuration and risk assessment of individual firewalls. Interoperability between systems and integration with different network security devices is essential," said Ruvi Kitov, CEO of Tufin. "Over time, our solution has evolved into a centralized platform that enables organizations to automate end-to-end policy management for firewalls, switches, routers, and load balancers."
"The Tufin Orchestration Suite has been a huge asset to our business, enabling us to implement network changes up to 80% faster," said Fritz Steinmann, Director and Head of Network Engineering at SIX Group Services AG. "Because the vast majority of firewall changes are application related, Tufin actually enables us to roll out applications faster, with best practices for security and compliance baked into the change process itself. So not only are we more efficient and agile, but as our requirements continue to evolve, Tufin ensures we can adjust our Network Security Policy accordingly."
Evolution from Policy Management to Policy Orchestration
Tufin has identified a number of recent industry developments in network security operations which necessitate the transition from management to orchestration:
The collective impact of these developments on network and security operations tasks has had a profound impact on people, processes and technology. Security Policy Orchestration is a necessity in order to keep up with the demands of the business while ensuring security and preventing an outage or a breach.
Unveiling the Tufin Orchestration Suite – Version R13-3
The Tufin Orchestration Suite™, reflects the evolution of Tufin's development strategy over the last several years. Tufin's product suite consists of three modules: Firewall Management (SecureTrack), Network Change Automation (SecureChange®) and Application Connectivity Management (SecureApp™), and features:
Version R13-3 of the Tufin Orchestration Suite has expanded its device support across a wider set of enterprise firewalls and network infrastructure, including Stonesoft, McAfee Firewall Enterprise, and F5 Load balancers. It includes enhanced change provisioning and IPv6 support for Juniper firewalls. R13-3 also significantly expands Tufin's already large library of RESTful APIs, allowing for fast integrations of external systems.
