The Tufin team is flying high this week, with Tufin Orchestration Suite having just been awarded Best in Show at the Best of VMworld Awards, recognizing the most outstanding products on display at VMware's annual user conference. On top of that, Tufin also took home another gold with first place in the Agility and Automation category. Winners were selected by an independent team of judges consisting of experts and editors from SearchServerVirtualization.com.
In announcing the award, the judges specifically cited Tufin Orchestration Suite for providing “on-the-fly risk analysis to allow understaffed companies be more security-conscious.” These comments call to mind results from a survey that we conducted earlier this year with ESG, in which 63% of respondents said that network security operations have become more difficult over the past two years. We're helping to address this challenge by enabling our customers to design, provision, analyze and audit security policy changes automatically, easing the burden on network security operations.
Today, one of the biggest factors complicating network security policy management is the migration toward public and private cloud solutions. The same survey found that 49% of respondents felt security teams didn't have the right level of cloud computing skills to provide the same amount of control and oversight as physical infrastructure. To this point, we were demonstrating our support for VMWare's private cloud platform, NSX, at VMWorld 2016 to address this particular skillset gap.
Continuing Tufin's Hot Streak
The Best of VMworld Awards recognition marks yet another highlight in a great year for Tufin so far. Following closely on our recent press release announcing our first half success, further recognition by the market of the benefits of Tufin Orchestration Suite is extremely gratifying. It's testament to the entire Tufin team!
