Tufin Technologies Launches New Suite, Talks Security Policy Orchestration

Tufin Technologies launched a rebranded suite of products this week as it outlined a new vision expanding beyond its bread and butter of firewall management and deeper into the area of security policy orchestration.

Tufin Technologies launched a rebranded suite of products this week as it outlined a new vision expanding beyond its bread and butter of firewall management and deeper into the area of security policy orchestration.

With the recent release of version R13-3 of the Tufin Orchestration Suite, the company is pushing a new emphasis on the automation of network layer change processes. The product suite consists of three modules: firewall management (SecureTrack), network change automation (SecureChange) and application connectivity management (SecureApp). With these products, the company is looking to help businesses better orchestrate change processes across management systems and business units as well as network connectivity changes across distributed data centers and heterogeneous networks.  

To that end, the suite includes a number of features, ranging from the central management of enterprise firewalls, routers and load-balancers from the major vendors such as McAfee and F5 as well as the ability to submit network access requests using one REST API call across complex, multi-vendor networks. The latest release expands Tufin’s library of RESTful APIs in the name of fast integrations of external systems, and also includes IPv6 support for Juniper Networks’ firewalls.

“Check Point and Tufin’s joint network security management solution enables our customers to operate fully-automated Data Centers and Cloud instances,” said Alon Kantor, vice president of business development at Check Point Software Technologies, in a statement. “Over the past 8 years, Check Point has worked closely with Tufin on their security product suite and we are excited to be part of the company’s new offering for virtual environment management.”

According to Tufin, the shift towards orchestration is necessitated by a number of realities, including the pressure on organizations due to the growth of enterprise networks, virtualization’s role in increasing the demand for automation across IT and the complexity of firewall management.

“Security policy orchestration goes far beyond the traditional configuration and risk assessment of individual firewalls,” said Ruvi Kitov, CEO of Tufin, in a statement. “Interoperability between systems and integration with different network security devices is essential. 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.”
