A manual firewall audit process can take weeks. Tufin’s firewall audit tools cuts your audit preparation down to days through automation, audit trails, and full documentation of change management processes. Respond to audit requests in real time via a single firewall audit console with prebuilt and customizable reports for standards and regulatory mandates, such as PCI DSS, HIPAA, SOX, NERC CIP and more.
Customers have cut their audit prep time from weeks to 2 hours by turning to Tufin to eliminate manual tasks.
Leverage a central console for monitoring, maintaining and proving continuous compliance with industry regulations and internal policies across firewalls and routers, SDN and hybrid, multi-cloud environments. Tufin’s software generates security audit reports on demand. Reports can be easily automated, based on criteria, such as business area, firewall vendors, cloud service providers, time periods, and geographic regions.
In addition, Tufin allows you to optimize security controls and maintain continuous compliance by automating firewall changes from change request to provisioning. This can include checking source and destination for vulnerabilities before allowing a change. Tufin automates firewall change design, impact and risk assessment, provisioning and change validation. Throughout the firewall change process, Tufin is logging an immutable audit trail.
Tufin makes it easy to identify and remove unused and shadowed rules, and it helps you minimize risky rulesets by automatically checking rulesets against historic firewall logs to tighten permissiveness to a least-privilege state. This helps you maintain a strong network security posture and improves firewall performance.
Tufin supports thousands of firewalls, internal network devices, and cloud resources with the ability to deliver visibility and control across 100 million routes. With Tufin, there’s no cracking under complexity. Our network security policy software supports all major firewall providers including Palo Alto Networks, Cisco, Check Point, Fortinet, and many others. Tufin also integrates easily with third-party IT service management platforms for end-to-end automation of firewall change workflows, rule cleanups, and server decommissioning.
Tufin delivers unmatched network and cloud topology intelligence across internal networks and cloud platforms for holistic visibility across your enterprise. Track rule changes (who, what, when), perform comprehensive risk analysis, troubleshoot network misconfigurations, accelerate remediation, tighten overly permissive rules, and more.
There are six main steps that should be performed in a firewall audit. These are 1) Review your organization’s firewall security policy, 2) Review your firewall operations policies, 3) Review authorizations and permissions of your firewall administrators, 4) Review your firewall change procedures, 5) Review the firewall system design, and 6) Review the firewall review process.
In a firewall policy audit, organizations should prioritize the review of the access policy change process and the firewall ruleset. The goal of the first review is to ensure that requested changes have proper approvals and have been implemented, and documented correctly. The goal of the second review is to evaluate the firewall security rulebase for each policy used in your internal and external firewalls.
Gain end-to-end visibility, automate policy management, and mitigate risks across your global hybrid network – from traditional enterprise firewall infrastructure to modern cloud CI/CD pipelines – without impacting speed or agility.
Only Tufin provides automation and a unified security policy, from on-prem to cloud, across NetSec and DevOps.
