Tufin Technologies, the market-leading provider of Security Policy Management solutions, today announced the availability of a new study,'The Total Economic Impact of the Tufin Security Suite." Tufin commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct the study, which illustrates what Forrester calls the Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) of deploying the Tufin Security Suite. Forrester's findings are based on an extensive analysis of one of Tufin's customers, a large European financial services company. According to the study, the organization will reap a full Return on Investment from the Tufin Security Suite in 11 months, and can expect benefits of slightly more than $3 million over a three-year period.
"At the end of the day, the demands on today's security professional are so intense that operational automation must be added to the security equation if the overall security posture of an organization is to be improved," said the study.
Tufin and a guest speaker from Forrester will provide an overview of the study's findings and methodology in a Webinar on May 21, 2013 at 11:00 EDT/16:00 BST. To register for the webinar, sign up here. Attendees will receive a first, exclusive view of the TEI report. A recording of the webinar will be available here following the event.
SIX, the company profiled in the study, provides services in the areas of securities trading, clearing, settlement, financial information, and payment transactions.
