When we speak with our customers, we hear them say that cloud and software-defined networking (SDN) are quickly becoming the IT standard. But in the very next breath, they often tell us that the ability to quickly and easily manage security policies around these technologies hasn't kept pace, and that they're adding unprecedented layers of complexity.

As more organizations find themselves mid-transition from legacy to virtual environments, the ability to properly manage and protect heterogeneous networks– including those using Amazon Web Services (AWS) - will be critical.

That's why we've made significant enhancements to the Tufin Orchestration Suite. The latest version, R16-2, boosts agility and security of application migration to AWS with automated provisioning and baked-in security. Customers benefit from an automated change process for AWS security policies, including provisioning for changes to AWS security groups, risk analysis against the enterprise security policy baseline, and automated change design.

Automation of security policies makes regulatory compliance more manageable, too. Ongoing enforcement of the enterprise baseline security policy for AWS applications, including management of violations and exceptions, ensures compliance with many industry regulations like PCI DSS, SOX, NERC CIP, and HIPAA, as well as with internal policies and best practices. Automation is the key to achieving and maintaining continuous compliance with the enterprise baseline security policy for AWS applications, as well as applications that span across on-prem networks and cloud -- without slowing down or interrupting business processes.
