Tufin launches product security suite for Security Lifecycle Management

Tufin Technologies Sets the Standard for Security Lifecycle Management with the General Availability of SecureTrack 4.5 and the Tufin Security Suite (TSS)

Sophisticated Network Security Policy Analysis, Compliance Management, and Joint Delivery with SecureChange Workflow Underscore Tufin’s Ongoing Innovation

London, March 24, 2008 - Tufin Technologies, the leading provider of Security Lifecycle Management solutions today announced the release of SecureTrack 4.5. This release furthers Tufin’s market leadership by expanding its already robust policy and compliance analysis and reporting capabilities while simplifying deployment. SecureTrack 4.5 also offers the capability to pre-load its companion change management solution, SecureChange Workflow. Together, these products comprise the Tufin Security Suite (TSS), providing security operations teams with unprecedented control over network security policy management – from the first policy request through its design, risk analysis, approval, implementation and auditing. Tufin Security Suite (TSS) highlights Tufin’s ability to automate critical operational processes, saving organizations a significant amount of time and money while improving their network security posture.

“Tufin’s ability to enable security teams to do more with less – and to quantify the time and cost savings it delivers – has kept it on the short list of any company still actively evaluating security technology,” said Nick Garlick, managing director of the Nebula Solutions Group. “The way Tufin has automated network security policy management is truly impressive - you can tell their solutions were designed by people who have experienced the most painful elements of security operations.”

Firewall policy management products have emerged to meet the need to better manage firewalls for compliance and reporting, especially where firewalls from multiple vendors are deployed,” said Greg Young, Research Vice president for Gartner, Inc. “The consoles and reporting tools from the firewall vendors are often simply found lacking, and third-party firewall policy management products are being used for rule optimization and compliance-related activities, such as reporting workflow and better separation of duties (SOD).”
Industry-leading functionality:

Key enhancements to SecureTrack/TSS 4.5 include:

  • Compliance White Listing – This new feature provides the ability to define organizational compliance policy as the traffic which is allowed ("white list"). This feature complements the existing capability for defining what is not allowed (“black list”). A real time alert is sent whenever a rule conflicts with the compliance policy.
  • On Demand Compliance Reporting – In addition to receiving compliance updates with each policy change, SecureTrack now enables administrators to create a real time snapshot of how network security policies align with predefined business continuity, regulatory, security and risk management policies.
  • TACACS+ Authentication – Support for using TACACS+ central authentication for SecureTrack users and administrators provides additional deployment options for centralizing user access management.
  • Simplified Licensing Scheme – Rather than assigning licenses based on specific devices, Tufin’s flexible licensing process enables customers to switch monitored devices of the same type within the licensed quantity to account based on business need.
“There are two main reasons why we have been ahead of the curve releasing key features. Number one is that we listen closely to feedback from our customers and channel partners and number two is that have walked many a mile in our customers’ shoes,” said Reuven Harrison, CTO, Tufin Technologies. “Our mission is to deliver products that make administrators’ jobs easier on a daily basis. As a result, SecureTrack delivers dramatic efficiencies that can be easily quantified. At the end of the day, when the people managing the business win, the business wins.”
