Presentation to Focus on Increasing Enterprise Attack Surface and the Need to Leverage Policy Automation to Address It
BOSTON – September 9, 2021 – Tufin® (NYSE: TUFN), a company pioneering a policy-centric approach to security and IT operations, today announced that its Chief Executive Officer, Ruvi Kitov, will deliver the keynote session entitled “How Enterprise Access Policies Can Drive Digital Transformation and Enable the Cloud” at the Fortinet PGA Championship. Ruvi’s keynote presentation is part of the event’s Tuesday Security Summit, presented by Tufin on September 14, 2021.
With the proliferation of access across on-premise, SDN and cloud environments, the attack surface is continually increasing. At the same time, many enterprises lack a comprehensive access policy, governing who can talk to whom, and what can talk to what. Instead, enterprises typically rely on institutional knowledge or manual and cumbersome systems to manage access between systems, across networks, and in the cloud.
In this session, Ruvi will discuss why now is the time for enterprises to build comprehensive, enterprise-wide access policies that span the entire organization (including the cloud) — and then leverage these policies to automate security operations.
Who: Ruvi Kitov, Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer, Tufin

“With the amount of enterprise-wide digital transformation initiatives continuing to increase, companies need to understand that their potential attack surface is increasing at the same time,” said Ruvi Kitov, CEO and co-founder of Tufin. “Having a strong security policy in place and working to automate enforcement of those policies is critical to having these long-term technology investments pay off.”
