Security Policy Orchestration for Cisco ACI

Software defined networking in the private cloud is a prevalent option for organizations that require a high degree of security control combined with the scalability of the cloud. The 2018 State of the Cloud Report highlights that companies run more applications in their private cloud than their public cloud, and retain emphasis on hybrid cloud usage. While the private cloud is a prevalent solution, it brings challenges by introducing new complexity to the network through East-West traffic.

Both the Tufin Orchestration Suite™ and Cisco ACI share a multi-tenant, policy-driven, application-centric approach. When the two solutions work in tandem, Tufin tracks the Cisco ACI platform in the context of the broader enterprise network. Tufin serves as the single pane of glass to enable effective change tracking, deploy and retain an enforceable security policy, ensure application-driven connectivity, and provide a state of audit preparedness.
