Tufin's Ongoing Innovation Leads to Recognition in the Security Industry's Coveted Excellence Award in the New Product Launch and/or Products Still on Announcement Embargo Category
Tufin Technologies, the market leading provider of Security Policy Management solutions, announced today that Info Security Products Guide, the industry's leading information security research and advisory guide, has named Tufin SecureApp a Bronze winner of the 2013 Global Excellence Awards in the New Product Launch and/or Products Still on Announcement Embargo category. The security industry celebrated its 9th Annual 2013 Global Excellence Awards in San Francisco by honoring excellence in every facet of the industry including products, people behind the successes and best companies.
"This industry honor was particularly fitting because SecureApp's application-oriented approach to Security Policy Management was a market first," said Julie Shafiki, Vice President of Marketing for Tufin. "According to one of our SecureApp customers, the unique solution reduced firewall change cycles from one week to one day. Info Security Products Guide's immediate recognition of SecureApp's value proposition is a testament to Tufin's ability to deliver ongoing innovation that delivers real business value."
SecureApp was developed to address what firewall administrators cite as one of their biggest challenges: managing the network connectivity of enterprise applications. As verified in surveys conducted in 2012 and 2013, the vast majority of firewall changes are application-related. Continuing its tradition of progress, Tufin developed SecureApp to automate business processes relating to application connectivity. SecureApp separates the business requirements from the underlying firewall and router policies, enabling security professionals and application owners to easily define, update, monitor and remove applications - without analyzing long lists of access rules on multiple firewalls and routers.
Tufin executed a highly successful launch SecureApp in September 2012, resulting in more than 15 media articles and seen as a positive move by industry analysts such as Enterprise Management Associates and the 451 Group. Customer and partner praise for SecureApp can be found here.
More than 50 judges from a broad spectrum of industry voices from around the world participated and their average scores determined the 2013 Global Excellence Awards Finalists and Winners.
