Network security teams spend a tremendous amount of time on
activities related to application connectivity: deploying new
applications, updating access to servers and other components,
decommissioning applications, and diagnosing connectivity
problems. As application owners generally don't "speak
firewall," there are frequent misunderstandings that can lead to
errors, wasted time, and even service disruptions. When things go
wrong, both the application and security teams lack visibility into
the correlation between the firewall policies and the application,
resulting in longer problem resolution times. In today's business
climate, delays and downtime are unacceptable.
A Paradigm Shift in Firewall Policy Management
SecureApp™ is a completely new approach to managing application
connectivity that separates the business requirements from the
underlying firewall and router policies. With SecureApp, security
professionals can easily define, update, monitor and remove
applications - without analyzing long lists of access rules on
multiple firewalls and routers. It provides unprecedented insight
into an application's connectivity needs so you can accelerate
service delivery, assure business continuity, simplify network
operations and monitor compliance.
An Integral Part of the Tufin Security Suite
SecureApp makes it simple to define applications and their
requirements from the network. When an application is deployed or
modified, SecureApp works with SecureChange to translate the
application requirements into firewall and router policy rules.
After the rule changes are implemented, it works with SecureTrack
to continuously monitor the application's connectivity status and
alert to changes that could impact availability. When it is time to
decommission an application, SecureApp automatically identifies the
policy rules that need to be changed or removed across all affected
firewalls and routers, eliminating unneeded access that can lead to
a security breach.
The Bridge to Application Teams and IT Security Auditors
With an intuitive user interface, SecureApp finally makes it
possible for application teams and network teams to communicate
accurately, eliminating the misunderstandings that lead to errors
and wasted time. For IT security auditors, SecureApp provides the
business justification for network connectivity rules that is
required by PCI DSS and other regulatory standards, eliminating
days of painstaking audit preparation.
