Tufin recognized in the "Network Project of the Year" category for its customer implementation at Virgin Media

Tufin Technologies, the leading provider of security lifecycle management solutions, has been nominated as a finalist in the 2011 Network Computing Awards for their work with Virgin Media under the "Network Project of the Year" category.

Presented annually, the Network Computing Awards have been set up to recognise the hardware, software and services - and the companies behind them, which have most impressed the readers of the UK's longest established computer networking publication. These readers are responsible for buying, specifying and using networking solutions at organisations throughout the UK.

Tufin, together with Nebulas, a leading UK network security reseller, worked with Virgin Media to enhance organisational network security and reduce potential downtime by automating the security team's day-to-day tasks through a powerful firewall operations management solution. The project was a huge success for Virgin Media, who were able to improve firewall performance by 15% and slash management time and costs by 30%.

This project with Virgin Media is all too familiar to so many companies faced with decade-old network security infrastructure and rule bases that are too large to run or maintain - all having a negative effect on both performance and security.

"We are honoured to be selected as a finalist for this prestigious award," said Ruvi Kitov, CEO, Tufin. "This achievement highlights the rapid return on investment that can be achieved from Security Lifecycle Management solutions, and validates our ability to help our customers more securely and efficiently manage firewalls and other network infrastructure."

The 2011 Network Computing Award winners will be announced and honoured at the Hotel Russell in London on April 7, 2011.
