Tufin to Present to Palo Alto Networks Users on How to Expand Network Security Policies from Next-Generation Firewalls to Cloud Instances Tufin®, the market-leading provider of Security Policy Orchestration solutions and a founding member of Palo Alto Networks Fuel User Group, will be presenting an exclusive webinar to inform customers on how to effectively expand network security policies from next-generation firewalls to hybrid cloud platform. The webinar will be held on September 16, 2015 from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. EDT. Tufin joins Fuel as a founding partner to bring security professionals together in Palo Alto Networks premier community, aimed at driving thought leadership and education for securing information and critical infrastructures across the world. The user-led, non-profit group is exclusively for customers of Palo Alto Networks who are interested in advancing their existing knowledge of information security, especially in the cloud, as well as in learning more about Palo Alto Networks technologies. The webinar will target Fuel User Group members who are already managing their network security policies in the physical environment with Palo Alto Networks Next-Gen Firewalls, and who are are also preparing to migrate these workloads to the cloud. During the members-only webinar, Ofer Or, VP of Products at Tufin, will share how to:

  • Preserve visibility for security and compliance as you move applications to the cloud
  • Focus the security design around application connectivity
  • Manage multi-vendor, multi technology security controls from a single console

“Tufin supports the security posture for enterprises adopting cloud and next-generation firewall technologies,” said Chad Kinzelberg, senior vice president, business and corporate development at Palo Alto Networks. “From network visibility and compliance to network security workflow automation, we’ve seen tremendous traction with Tufin’s integration into our next-generation firewall platforms, especially when it comes to the complex environments of the Global 2000 organizations.” Earlier this year, Tufin announced its integration with Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Firewall to help enterprises automate the orchestration of their complex network security policies. As these enterprises move to more heterogeneous network environments, it becomes more difficult to effectively manage security policies and safeguard against cyber security threats, as there are more paths than ever that a hacker can take. Collectively, Tufin and Palo Alto Networks help organizations reduce these attack vectors and more effectively identify and classify traffic as it attempts to enter the network. They also strive to gradually ease the adoption of Palo Alto Networks traffic classification tools, App-ID and User-ID, which categorize traffic based on application and user identification to form better and more effective security policies. “We believe that communities like the Fuel User Group are exactly what this industry needs to grow and spread the necessary awareness,” said Ofer Or, VP of Products at Tufin. “We aim to continue that progression both with Palo Alto Networks customers and Fuel User Group members with this upcoming webinar, and continue learning from this extremely intelligent and innovating community.”
