Managing network security and security policies across on-premises or off-premises data centers, cloud applications, and other computing environments is complex and expensive.
Two top-tier security solutions come together to accelerate your digital transformation. Tufin’s integration with the zero-trust Zscaler Internet Access™ solution provides centralized visibility into Zscaler Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) policy rules, as well as security policies across your multi-vendor network devices and cloud resources.
Holistic visibility into Zscaler policies along side the broader multi-vendor ecosystem of policies, simplifies planning, troubleshooting and compliance reporting.
Key features include:
A centralized security policy engine for both on-premises networks and cloud-native platforms ensures end-to-end security for enterprise apps, assets, and cloud workloads. Tufin delivers security policy visibility across AWS, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform.
Tufin’s Rule Viewer enables network administrators to gain an instant view of Zscaler Cloud Firewall rules directly from the Tufin console, for fast analysis. Users can view rule attributes — sources, destinations, users, applications. The Rule Viewer also provides rule metadata, such as when the rule was last modified, the certification status if rule certification is being enforced via Tufin, and if the rule is overly permissive and should therefore be modified or removed

To ensure continuous compliance and enable faster troubleshooting, Tufin monitors and highlights Zscaler Cloud Firewall rule changes — what was changed, when, by whom, and whether there’s a comment or a reference associated with it. Tufin records every policy revision, maintaining a complete policy history as it evolves over time. Administrators can quickly retrieve and view the Zscaler policy as it existed at a previous point in time. A side-by-side comparison helps admins review changes to identify and fix misconfigurations. This can be invaluable when a change unexpectedly blocks access to a critical asset, enabling auditors to immediately view what has changed since the last audit

Admins can filter rules by locations, apps, URL category, and users, for faster resolution of security and connectivity issues

Adding Zscaler Cloud Firewall to Tufin is fast and easy. Users simply go to SecureTrack+ ‘Monitoring’ and select ‘Zscaler Cloud Firewall’ as an additional environment to monitor. The Zscaler Cloud Firewall rules are then automatically retrieved by Tufin and added into Tufin SecureTrack+.
SSE is defined by Gartner as a convergence of cloud-based network security services delivered from a purpose-built cloud platform. It is considered a subset of the secure access service edge (SASE) framework. SSE architecture is dedicated entirely to delivering security services.
Zscaler Internet Access is a cloud-native security service edge (SSE) solution. It is a a SaaS solution to simplify network security and operations for cloud- and mobile-first enterprises. It boasts a seamless user experience.
All users, apps, devices, and locations get always-on threat protection based on identity and context. It provides inline inspection of all internet traffic, including SSL decryption, with a suite of “AI-powered” cloud security services. Zscaler claims to stop ransomware, zero-day malware, and advanced attacks leveraging threat intelligence from 300 trillion daily signals.
Zscaler applies the principles of least privilege to give users direct connection to private applications hidden from the Internet.while eliminating unauthorized access and lateral movement. A cloud native service, ZPA can be deployed in hours to replace legacy VPNs and remote access tools with a holistic zero trust platform.
It is a zero-trust, next-generation firewall that enables speedy, secure network connections for all internet traffic, including SSL encrypted traffic. This next-gen firewall (NGFW) and cloud security platform offers unlimited scalability and provides ongoing, consistent protection for users across your corporate network, no matter their device or location.
Zscaler Cloud Firewall allows teams to:
It is Zscaler’s cloud native platform that connects workloads, devices, and users instead of putting them on the corporate network. The platform verifies the identity and profile of the user, their device (including IoT devices), for workload through third-party access management providers.
The Zero Trust Exchange helps teams to:
Zscaler Cloud Sandbox is a malware prevention engine that delivers inline, latency-free traffic inspection across web and file transfer protocols, including SSL/TLS.
Only Tufin provides automation and a unified security policy, from on-prem to cloud, across NetSec and DevOps.
