“The manual change process was prone to error and bad requests, which meant having to do things more than once – not to mention making the network less secure.”

Automate Changes on Traditional, Next-Generation and Cloud Firewalls.

Tufin’s vendor-agnostic approach to security policy automation features support for a broad variety of firewall vendors, including next-generation firewalls. It also supports change automation for popular cloud providers, such as AWS and Azure. Tufin gives you the freedom to embrace the future without fear.

Deploy Firewall Policy Changes Effortlessly.

Nearly every network access change involves complex configuration changes throughout multiple, multi-vendor firewalls, switches, and routers, as well as security groups. Doing it manually, without accurate network topology and automated tools, makes it impossible to handle tickets in a timely manner, without exposing your organization to network security risks.

Tufin provides unlimited, fully customizable, access change workflows that will automate the process from change request to provisioning. This ensures a fast, accurate, secure and documented access change process, to prevent and expose otherwise hidden security risks in your organization.

Implement Vulnerability-Based Change Automation.

What if you could automatically detect and instantly remediate security vulnerabilities across your entire organization, even if you have thousands of firewalls from different vendors in your network? Then you’d be using Tufin SecureChange+. Tufin’s vulnerability-based change automation tools check for vulnerabilities at the source, flag at-risk rules and policy violations, and ensure every change request is in line with your unified cybersecurity policies. With Tufin, you can deploy and manage your firewalls with confidence, anywhere, anytime.

Improve Security Policy Hygiene.

Firewall rulesets can be comprised of thousands of rules. Multiply that by thousands of firewalls – a very real possibility for large enterprises – and it’s easy to see why managing and curating firewall rulesets are daunting tasks. It’s not uncommon for enterprises to have redundant, shadowed, and outdated firewall policies in place because they don’t have time to address the magnitude of the problem. Tufin provides a simple solution: automation. Automating policy changes allows organizations to achieve in seconds what can often take days to do manually.

Update rules in real time.

With Tufin, you can automatically remove or modify firewall rules in real time to protect against new threats, re-route network traffic, block risky services, clean up unused policies, manage change requests, and more. Rule automation can also be performed at the server and application level to minimize your network’s attack surface.

Generate better policies automatically.

Tufin’s Automatic Policy Generator (APG) tool helps firewall administrators easily create and optimize new rules based on real network traffic analysis. APG analyzes your firewall logs and generates an optimal rulebase that ranks the permissiveness of each rule based on a scale of 1 to 100 to identify and tighten overly permissive rules and create customized firewall rule sets based on specific traffic patterns.

Simplify rule recertification.

Tufin Orchestration Suite supports full automation of the firewall rule recertification process. Monitor and manage expiring (or expired) firewall rule sets, review existing rules against compliance requirements, gain visibility into rule metadata, and automatically recertify rules across multiple firewall vendor platforms.

Minimize Misconfiguration Errors.

We all make mistakes, and the latest firewall surveys bear this out. In a recent Tufin survey, 85 percent of organizations reported that half their firewall rule changes required later modification because of poor rule design. The same survey found that two-thirds of organizations believe that manual change management processes put their business at risk of a network security breach. Let automation take human error out of the equation. It dramatically reduces security risks, eliminates human error due to poor rule designs and misconfigurations, provides deep network visibility to troubleshoot at-risk rules, and returns your security team’s most precious commodity, time, back to the business.

Be Always Audit Ready.

Tufin is the leader in firewall change management, providing on-demand audit reports that have reduced customer audit prep time from weeks to a couple hours.

Firewall audits are a time-consuming task, with 40 percent of organizations reporting that they spend a month or more each year on auditing firewall rules, according to a recent Tufin survey. The same survey found that nearly one in four organizations (23 percent) have never conducted a firewall audit and only seven percent have automated their firewall audit workflows. With Tufin, organizations can easily automate their firewall audits — regardless of their underlying network infrastructure — to quickly meet the compliance requirements of PCI DSS, SOX, ISO 27001, and much more.

FAQs

What is firewall automation?
Firewall rule automation is the process of automating firewall changes, provisioning, and policy tasks in order to strengthen security, assist in troubleshooting, reduce network bottlenecks, and ensure that organizations meet compliance mandates. At the same time, firewall automation enables firewall administrators to replace time-consuming manual processes so they focus on more critical tasks.
How can you automate your firewall rules?
Firewall rule automation should follow a systematic approach that begins with automating the most commonly encountered use cases (e.g., rule decommissioning, policy compliance) first. This ensures that organizations see early value from their automation efforts. Eventually, organizations will want to automate the entire change management process.
