Tufin Leverages its Open Architecture, the Tufin Open Platform (TOP), to Automate Policy Management Across an Extensive Set of Network and Security Devices

November 9, 2009 - Tufin Technologies, the award-winning provider of Security Lifecycle Management solutions, today announced it has released a set of 12 plugins, extending support of its robust solution set to a wider set of network devices. Showcasing the value and utility of Tufin's open extensible architecture, the Tufin Open Platform (TOP), Tufin has released plugins for switches and routers from industry leaders including Cisco, Juniper and HP. By extending Tufin's comprehensive, automated change tracking, in-depth security policy optimization, and built-in compliance reports across heterogeneous network infrastructures, Tufin enables organizations to cost-effectively manage network security policy, eliminate manual, error prone processes, comply with regulatory standards, and minimize IT risk. Supporting the broadest set of network infrastructure, Tufin continues to demonstrate its ability to innovate and successfully execute on its vision for Security Lifecycle Management.

"Firewall Policy Management functions are only part of the solution when controlling access to sensitive zones within the corporate infrastructure." said Eric Ogren, principal analyst of the Ogren Group.
