Version R14-3 of the Tufin Orchestration Suite™ Enables SDN-Equivalent Agility for Network Security Infrastructure
Tufin®, the market-leading provider ofSecurity Policy Orchestration solutions, today announced version R14-3 of its award-winning Tufin Orchestration Suite. Delivering on Tufin’s vision for end-to-end network change automation, R14-3 enables full automation of policy changes for Check Point, Cisco and Juniper firewalls while adhering to corporate policy. This increased level of automation, which includes design, risk assessment, approvals and now change provisioning, enables organizations to manage their existing network security environments with the desired agility of modern cloud and SDN architectures.
“In the recent ESG research report, ‘Network Security Trends in the Era of Cloud and Mobile Computing,’ ESG surveyed of 397 IT security professionals and found that 39% report IT initiatives are being adopted without proper network security oversight or controls, 28% report overlapping controls and processes, and 26% of organizations are challenged by security policies that are too complex and can’t be enforced,” said Jon Oltsik, senior principal analyst at the Enterprise Strategy Group. “Tufin continues to provide network security automation that can help deliver immediate business value. It can also help ensure the physical/virtual network security alignment needed for organizations to benefit from SDN and other promising technologies as they continue to mature.”
Key enhancements to the Tufin Orchestration Suite include:
- End-to end automation for Check Point, Cisco ASA firewalls, Cisco IOS routers and Juniper SRX firewalls: With R14-3, customers can automate network changes for these devices throughout the network change lifecycle – from the initial access request, through risk and compliance analysis, topology-based path calculation and target firewall selection, network change design, and finally the new ability to automatically provision approved changes to the firewalls. By delivering end-to-end automation for market leading firewalls, Tufin enables SDN-equivalent agility at the network security layer.
- Application Awareness for Palo Alto Networks Next-Gen firewalls: R14-3 includes the ability to automatically verify application-identity flows on Palo Alto Networks Next-Gen firewalls, delivering smarter policy design and streamlined change management.
