Security Policy Management for Microsoft Azure Firewalls, NSGs and NVAs
Consolidate your Azure network security polices, including Azure Firewalls, Azure Network Security Groups (NSGs) and Network Virtual Appliances (NVAs), in one central location. Tufin enforces native security controls within Azure and across your entire hybrid infrastructure.
Protect and manage your Azure virtual network
As a Microsoft partner, Tufin helps your teams maintain holistic security policy management and compliance. When you integrate Azure with Tufin, you can:
- Automate change management for Azure Firewalls, Network Virtual Appliances (third-party cloud firewalls), and Network Security Groups.
- Network connectivity troubleshooting and ‘what-if’ analysis for Azure and on-premises applications.
- Gain real-time, app-centric visibility into network configurations and changes of all Azure assets, services, and workloads.
- Swiftly design and implement security policies based on approved North/South and East/West network traffic.
- Receive real-time alerts for any access and connectivity violations across all cloud workloads.
- Automatically verify service builds against security policies within CI/CD pipelines (Microsoft Azure Resource Templates, Terraform, Ansible, etc.).

Automate and simplify your Microsoft Azure Firewall policy management
Tufin ensures you can enforce policy-driven, unified security across Azure and your entire on-premise and cloud environments. With full, real-time visibility, Tufin creates automated audit trails and visualizes network topology for automated, secure network security management across all your Azure Firewall Policies.
Using Tufin’s Advanced Policy search, policy cleanup (unnecessary and risky rules) and optimization is made simple and ensures a constant state of audit readiness, with full network visibility and Centralize security policy management.
Tufin’s centralized end-to-end visibility reduces the time and resources required for network troubleshooting in a hybrid network whilst simultaneously reducing the attack surface by gaining visibility into overly permissive rules of Azure Firewall policies
Automated audit trails
An automated audit trail tracks changes made to your firewall security policy. Tufin enables you to compare policy versions side by side and identify relevant changes quickly.
Network topology visualization
Access a live, accurate network topology maps of your Azure environment that visualizes how traffic flows according to routing and network configuration, and whether a security configuration blocks or allows access.
Tufin’s Interactive Topology Map, highlights connectivity issues across different Azure security policies including Azure Firewalls, Network Virtual Appliances and Network Security Groups, allowing DevOps and Netsec teams to collaborate more effectively.
Keep your DevOps up to speed
Tufin plus Azure Firewall enables DevOps and DevSecOps teams to enforce global policy requirements and simultaneously apply local policies.
Simple Azure virtual network policy management
Azure is a fully stateful, cloud-native firewall service that protects your digital assets. With unrestricted cloud scalability, Azure Firewall helps you build, enforce, and track application and network security policies.
Tufin seamlessly integrates with Microsoft Azure Firewall to efficiently enforce and design security policies that illuminates the gaps between your intended segmentation and reality.
No load balancers or complicated configuration.
Scale without restrictions to adjust as network traffic fluctuates.
Limit outbound HTTP/S traffic to designated fully qualified domain names (FQDN), inclusive of wild cards.
Network traffic filtering rules
Allow or deny network rules in a central control plane. Filter by IP address, port, and protocol. Easily set up a network rule that allows access to external DNS servers.
Azure Firewall can distinguish legitimate packets across multiple connection types. Enforce and log rules across your subscriptions and virtual networks.
Inbound and outbound traffic support
Azure Firewall translates outbound virtual network traffic IP addresses into Azure Firewall public IP addresses. Inbound network traffic to your public IP address gets filtered to your virtual network private IP addresses.
Control network access on Azure subnets
Configure a customized chain of firewall rules that enable you to send select traffic through additional processing.
Creating virtual machines
Set up Azure VMs to create a cluster or add it as a node to an existing cluster.
Enhanced cloud security
Use Azure Firewall Premium for advanced threat intelligence and protection, especially for industries subject to intense compliance scrutiny.
Azure Firewall Premium includes a network intrusion detection and prevention system (IDPS) so you can monitor threats and log and blog malicious activity.
Enhance Azure Firewall Standard’s FQDN filtering and consider filtering entire URLs as well as supplementary paths.
Manage rule collections
Work with and adjust rule collection processing. Azure Firewall has three preset rule collection groups:
Default DNAT rule groups
Default Network rule groups
Default application rule groups
Define priority order and create customer rule collection groups to ensure safety across cloud-based services and your Azure application.
Configure SQL database IP firewalls
Set, manage, and adjust server-level firewall rules.
Connect other Azure services
Set up firewall rules across your Azure services to ensure widespread security.
