Tufin Technologies Delivers on the Vision of Security Lifecycle Management With Tufin Security Suite (TSS) 5.0

TSS' Distributed Deployment Architecture, New Workflow GUI and Tufin Open Platform APIs Provide Organizations With an Automated, Flexible, and Highly Robust Platform to Create, Monitor, Manage and Audit Network Security Policies

WASHINGTON, DC -- (Marketwire) -- 06/29/09 -- Gartner Information Security Summit -- Tufin Technologies, the leading provider of Security Lifecycle Management solutions, today announced a new release of its Tufin Security Suite (TSS). Version 5.0 elevates TSS from an integrated offering of Tufin's award-winning SecureTrack and SecureChange Workflow product set to a robust, flexible and fully automated security and network policy management platform.

The significant innovations to the TSS architecture and workflow interface, combined with new functionality provided by the Automatic Policy Generator (announced today in a separate release), has provided Tufin with the foundation to deliver on its vision of Security Lifecycle Management: A cohesive framework for centralized network security policy management.

"Simplicity is the best antidote for complexity, which in the world of security operations, takes the form of automation and ease of use," said Richard Stiennon, chief analyst of IT-Harvest. "What makes delivering that automation easier said than done is two things: the need to introduce it into the environment without creating new management complexity, and to be able to adjust it as needed based on business or regulatory requirements. Tufin has been consistent in delivering solutions that tackle these industry challenges head on, and this release is a huge step forward in extending its success beyond firewall operations."

TSS 5.0 - End-to-end Security Lifecycle Management

TSS 5.0 enables administrators to accomplish more, more securely and in less time. As the company and market continues to evolve, the architecture, usability, and functional innovations introduced in TSS 5.0 provide the foundation required for Tufin to extend its award-winning automation and management to any network device. These innovations include:

Automatic Policy Generation - True to its name, Tufin's Automatic Policy Generator (APG) automates the creation of optimized rule bases for new and existing firewall deployments. This not only eliminates the risk introduced by overly permissive policies without impacting business continuity, it reduces future complexity that comes over time by ensuring the initial rule base is optimized from day one. For more information on the APG, please see the today's press release at http://www.tufin.com/news_press_releases.php.

Distributed Deployment Architecture - For organizations spread across multiple data centers or a single large data center, TSS now supports a distributed deployment architecture, meaning that multiple TSS appliances can be centrally managed from a single console. By providing a flexible, distributed deployment architecture, Tufin Security Suite installations can scale to support any size organization while reducing the total cost of ownership and maintaining ease of deployment of its award-winning solutions.

New Workflow Interface - Tufin's workflow engine is the core of its SecureChange Workflow product, a change management solution designed specifically for security and network policy change requests. Using Tufin's re-engineered, user-friendly workflow GUI, organizations can easily and intuitively design an unlimited number of fully customizable policy changes with tight integration with directory services (such as Microsoft Active Directory) and proactively manage incoming change tickets with risk analysis, business continuity and compliance information.

Tufin Open Platform (TOP) - TOP is both an industry-wide alliance of leading security and networking vendors and the management framework for delivering open, multi-vendor Security Lifecycle Management. Purpose-built to enable streamlined, policy-driven network and security management, Tufin's open architecture supports and expedites third party interoperability with TSS and helps joint customers to be better equipped to manage day-to-day operations of today's complex, intertwined, dynamic networks. TOP was formally launched last month with support for Check Point, Cisco, Juniper, Fortinet, F5 and Blue Coat. More alliance partners will be announced over the coming months.

"The launch of TSS 5.0 heralds a huge step forward in delivering on our vision of security lifecycle management by extending our ability to automate policy management for any device in an organizations network security eco-system," said Ruvi Kitov, CEO, Tufin Technologies. "We have been able to execute on such a broad vision in a short period of time by maintaining a tight, laser-like focus on our fundamental mission -- to make security administrators' lives easier while reducing operational costs. At the end of the day, that's what drives both our roadmap and our decision making process."

Pricing and Availability

TSS 5.0 will be Generally Available in August 2009. Pricing starts at $20,000.
