Tufin Technologies releases 5.2 for MSSPs
October 2010 by Emmanuelle Lamandé
Tufin Technologies announced version 5.2 of Tufin Security Suite (TSS) - the combined offering of SecureTrack, its firewall operations, auditing and compliance product and SecureChange Workflow, its security change automation product.
Key enhancements to TSS 5.2 include:
Network Topology Intelligence: TSS automatically discovers an organization’s firewall topology and provides security administrators with a dynamic, visual map. The map identifies network zones located behind firewall and router interfaces, and enhances the automation and efficiency of core features including access requests, risk analysis, and audit and compliance reporting.
Rule Recertification: To further streamline compliance management and reporting, TSS now provides the ability to document each rule, identify technical and business owners and indicate an expiration date for recertification or removal.
Full Support for Juniper JunOS SRX and Fortinet Fortigate: Tufin offers the most comprehensive support for the SRX/J-Series firewalls including real-time policy retrieval, policy analysis, audits and compliance reports.
Enterprise Multi-Tenancy: Building off of Tufin’s robust distributed architecture, TSS 5.2 allows large enterprises to manage separate business units or datacenters from a central console with complete administration separation governed by robust role-based administration rights.
Executive Change Management Dashboard: TSS’s Executive Change Management Dashboard enables managers, administrators and users to instantly assess the status of security change operations in SecureChange Workflow. The dashboard features intuitive graphical widgets such as ticket status, SLA status, ticket load per administrator, and more.
Automatic Change Verification: TSS 5.2 analyzes each completed change ticket to automatically verify whether the request was handled successfully. Automatic verification speeds request processing and minimizes the need to re-open tickets.
SLA Tracking: With Service Level Agreement (SLA) support, organizations can improve their security process management while supporting organizational service management initiatives. SLA data can be viewed through the executive CM dashboard and in detailed reports. When a task does not meet its SLA, configurable alerts or escalation processes are activated. SLA tracking integrates seamlessly with external help desk systems including BMC Remedy.
Topology Analysis for the Policy Change Advisor: Integrating Topology Analysis with the Policy Change Advisor automatically identifies precisely which firewalls and routers are relevant to any access request. It then uses sophisticated policy analysis to determine which rules and objects must be modified in order to support the change, saving time and eliminating the need for administrators to remember the network topology as it evolves.
Pricing and Availability
Tufin Security Suite 5.2 is available immediately for customers and channel partners. General availability is planned for late November. Pricing starts at $20,000.
