New Release Enables Security Teams to Automate Change
Provisioning and Dramatically Streamline Operations
February 21, 2012 - Tufin Technologies,
the market-leading provider of Security Policy Management
solutions, today announced release R12-1 of its award-winning Tufin
Security Suite (TSS). TSS R12-1 features innovations such as an
Interactive Dashboard, Automated Change Provisioning, and a new
Policy Analysis interface that further enhances Tufin's unique
capability to analyze both network layer and Next Generation
"The market for firewall
management and compliance has matured, and customer
expectations are high," said Eric Ogren, principal analyst with the
Ogren Group. "At this juncture, innovation and simplicity are key.
Something as simple as an automated access request process or the
ability to intuitively research historical data can literally
transform how network security teams work. Tufin's knack for
bringing efficiency to network security management will keep the
market expanding and customers happy."
A key innovation of TSS R12-1 is a new Interactive Dashboard
that provides instant visibility into an organization's security
and compliance posture. It displays risks, recent changes and
access rules and objects that need to be cleaned up or optimized.
Dashboard widgets provide key performance indicators, scores and
trends, and include a variety of filters and views. TSS's new Risk,
Change and Cleanup browsers deliver drill down capabilities,
empowering administrators to view policy information in context of
what they are trying to accomplish.
Other key features include:
- Automated Provisioning of Security Policy Changes: TSS can now
automatically execute planned configuration changes on Check Point
firewall security policies, delivering end-to-end automation
firewall change management. The system automatically recommends
the most optimal policy changes on the relevant firewalls. After
the security administrator reviews the recommendation, TSS can
automatically provision the configuration change. This capability
is separately licensed.
- Enhanced Policy Analysis: a new and intuitive user interface
that makes it much quicker and easier to perform sophisticated
queries and what-if simulations by object, by time, by device(s),
with multiple sources, destinations, services, users and
- Network Topology Enhancements -Network Topology Intelligence
now supports Network Address Translation (NAT) to enable precise
simulation of address translations.
- Support for Juniper Networks' Network and Security Manager
(NSM): SecureTrack now supports Juniper Networks' NSM, and can
monitor firewalls via NSM as well as monitor each firewall
- Access Request Forms: TSS R12-1 features a new Access Request
form that makes it even faster and easier to request a network
access change. Users can now define access requests using IP
addresses, subnets, network objects and services as well as users
and applications for Next Generation firewalls (currently supported
for Palo Alto Networks).
TSS release R12-1 is the first major release of 2012. The next
major release will be named R (for Revision) 12 (for 2012) -2 (the
sequential number of the release during the calendar year).
"Every conversation we have with a customer reinforces the
reality that maintaining a secure and compliant network is a
complex, resource-intensive and high risk operation, which is
simply impossible to sustain without automation," said Reuven
Harrison, CTO and co-founder, Tufin. "TSS cuts the time and cost of
business critical functions such as
firewall audits and change management by as much as 70%,
and the enhancements to TSS R12-1 extend that dramatic ROI by
automating additional processes managed by network security
Pricing and Availability
TSS R12-1 will be generally available by February 29, 2012.
Pricing starts at $20,000.
