Tufin® today announces the launch of the latest release of the award-winning Tufin Orchestration Suite™ R15-3 which enables organizations to expand automation and security controls for fast and secured service delivery across their entire physical network and hybrid cloud platforms. Through a single console, Tufin Orchestration Suite R15-3 delivers increased visibility and monitoring of security policies and continuous compliance, as well as advanced support for Palo Alto Networks, and unified policy management for Azure, Microsoft’s public cloud platform.

Some of the highlighted new capabilities in R15-3 include:

Visibility into Security Policies across Firewalls and Hybrid Cloud Platforms

  • Unified policy management and automated analysis for Microsoft Azure – Adding to the already existing support of Amazon Web Services (AWS), and private cloud platforms from VMware NSX and OpenStack, Tufin now also supports Microsoft’s public cloud, Azure, allowing centralized visibility of policies and network changes across virtual machines and network security groups, alongside firewall and next-generation firewall (NGFW) policies.
  • Interactive Topology Map for advanced simulation scenarios – allows instant connectivity troubleshooting and change planning with connections spanning heterogeneous networks, including cloud networks.

Security and compliance with IT governance and industry standards

  • Restrict risky services from the Unified Security Policy – allows security administrators to define, track and manage access restrictions between security zones based on blacklists and whitelists.
  • Compliance for Microsoft Azure – provides an automated audit trail and regulatory compliance reports for standards such as PCI DSS, SOX and NERC CIP.

Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Firewalls

  • Optimize Palo Alto Networks’ NGFW security policy and rules with usage analysis for applications and users.
  • Palo Alto Networks NGFW Cluster Awareness for path analysis, policy optimization, risk analysis and change automation.

In Gartner’s report from October 2, 2015 “Top Strategic Predictions for 2016 and Beyond: The Future Is a Digital Thing”, it states: “Security concerns remain the most common reason for avoiding the use of public cloud services… The high levels of concern about cloud service provider security postures have become counterproductive. They are distracting attention from the need to establish the organizational, security and governance processes required to prevent cloud security and compliance mistakes.” The research recommends to “implement and enforce policies on cloud ownership and cloud risk acceptance processes.” Another point made in the report states, “the diffuse and complex nature of cloud computing will continue to ensure significant and growing opportunities for multiple forms of cloud control planes. ID as a service, cloud application security brokers, cloud management platforms, and other categories of cloud control provide convenient single consoles and management points. These make it possible to ensure common configurations and policies, and monitor and govern user activities, across an increasingly complex virtual enterprise of applications based in infrastructure as a service (IaaS), platform as a service (PaaS) and software as a service (SaaS) cloud.”

“With the complexity of today’s networks, it is essential that enterprises maintain visibility and control across physical networks and public and private cloud platforms being implemented,” said Ofer Or, VP of Products, Tufin. “Tufin focuses on our customers’ key needs and ensures that the Tufin Orchestration Suite remains future-proofed for organizations moving to new technologies and platforms.”
