BOSTON - September 12, 2022 - Tufin®, the leader in security policy automation, today announced that its co-founder and CEO, Ruvi Kitov, will present a keynote address at this year’s Fortinet PGA Championship event. Entitled “Securing Connectivity in the Cloud – with Policy-based Automation,” Ruvi’s keynote presentation will be part of Tuesday’s Security Summit.
In this session, Ruvi will discuss how organizations are moving more of their infrastructure to the cloud. This trend is blurring the edge of the enterprise network, with many applications straddled across on-premise, public cloud and edge locations. As a result, network security teams are now often tasked with securing access throughout the ever-expanding network, including East-West and North-South connectivity inside enterprise cloud environments.
As a part of his presentation, Ruvi will highlight recent trends and significant changes that affect security teams, such as the variety of security controls, different stakeholders and complexity of the environments they have to deal with. He will also share advice on how a policy-based automation approach to security can help overcome the problems that modern environments present.

“The complexity of modern enterprise networks is making it increasingly difficult for network security teams to successfully protect their environments,” said Ruvi Kitov, CEO, Tufin. “Instead of constantly adding new methods and layers of segmentation, it’s time for a different approach to securing connectivity in the cloud. Policy-based automation can help ensure teams maintain security without being overwhelmed by the ever-increasing size and intricacy of the modern workplace.”
