Tufin Debuts SecureApp to Manage Network Connectivity of Enterprise Applications
By Shamila Janakiraman
Tufin Technologies a provider of Security Policy Management solutions introduced a new product known as SecureApp that can manage the network connectivity of enterprise applications.
Most network security professionals believe that the reason for a firewall change request is application connectivity related. Also, many professionals feel that a rule change related to a new application is responsible for a breach. Many network professionals deploy a new application every week.
Although most existing firewall management solutions are automated the process of managing application connectivity is strenuous as it is manual and error prone.
Tufin SecureApp forms part of the Tufin Security Suite and it delivers a central repository for application connectivity data. Also, the data is presented in a way that network administrators and application owners find it easy to deploy, modify, de-commission, monitor up-time and troubleshoot application connectivity issues.
Communication accuracy with no errors is assured by SecureApp. This saves a lot on time and eliminates security and compliance exposure. IT processes are enhanced by abstracting application connectivity data from the network security policy.
“When we asked our customers where they were spending the most time and energy, the answer was almost always applications,” said Ruvi Kitov, CEO, Tufin Technologies.
“Since application owners don’t speak ‘firewall,’ there were often miscommunications between the application teams and the network teams, resulting in a wide range of compliance, business continuity, and other process problems. We decided that a new, application-oriented paradigm would solve those problems, and if the feedback we have received is any indicator, we are confident SecureApp will revolutionize firewall policy management,” Kitov added.
Tufin Technologies published the results of its InfoSecurity Europe survey. IT security professionals from 119 organizations took part in the survey, which was taken on the show floor at InfoSecurity Europe in April 2012.
