Tufin Extends Its Leadership in Policy-Based Security Automation

Sponsored by Businesswire

(NYSE: TUFN), a company pioneering a policy-centric approach to security
and IT operations, today announced the release of Tufin Orchestration
Suite R19-1, advancing its leadership in network security automation
with the industry’s first solution to feature policy-based automation
for server policy cloning.

Enterprises today devote significant time and resources to processing
access requests related to server policy cloning during application
migration. With its new server policy cloning capabilities, the latest
version of the award-winning Tufin Orchestration Suite enables
enterprises to duplicate the right policy to set up new servers quickly
and without errors. Organizations going through digital transformation
can now migrate applications to new data centers or to the cloud without
compromising the availability and security of mission-critical services.
As a result, network security teams can now dramatically accelerate the
pace of application migration, save time and resources and achieve
continuous compliance with full documentation of the process.

“Our customers have some of the largest and most complex networks in the
world, and it’s critical that any changes they make to security policies
are executed quickly and accurately across the network,” said Ofer Or,
Vice President of Products at Tufin. “The latest release of the Tufin
Orchestration Suite is designed to help enterprises undergoing digital
transformation improve the speed, accuracy and security of application
migration across networks.”

Categorization of Unassociated IP Addresses
The latest
version of the Tufin Orchestration Suite builds on Tufin’s
industry-leading network segmentation capabilities. With Tufin
Orchestration Suite R19-1, all private IP addresses that are not
associated with zones can still be protected by the Unified Security
Policy (USP) matrix. By leveraging a pre-defined “private” zone for
unassociated networks, Tufin enables enterprises to establish
restrictions on traffic to and from a private network, tightening their
network security posture. Security teams can extend their segmentation
policy across the entire fragmented network. This allows security teams
to ensure that all subnetworks across the enterprise are secured.

This capability is key for Zero Trust security initiatives, as it helps
enforce a unified security policy across large, complex networks and
eliminates any blind spots that the security team may inadvertently
miss. It also provides critical support for enterprises who experience
challenges in defining their network segmentation policy. With Tufin
Orchestration Suite R19-1, it is easy to start segmenting by defining
the basic restrictions of access between private networks and the
internet, for which zones are pre-defined, and then refine the policy
further by adding specific network zones for applications and systems
containing sensitive data.

Tufin Orchestration Suite R19-1 also features vendor-specific
enhancements, including:

  • Tightened security through enhanced support for next generation
    firewall policies by adding visibility into Palo Alto Networks URL
  • Support for Cisco Nexus VXLAN to ensure accurate topology analysis and
  • Automated server decommissioning for Check Point global objects and
    support for Check Point version R80.20

Tufin Orchestration Suite R19-1 is now generally available.
