Security Lifecycle Management Leader Partners With Industry Giant to Lower the Cost and Increase the Effectiveness of Security Operations

RAMAT GAN, ISRAEL -- (Marketwire) -- 07/14/09 -- Tufin Technologies, the market leading provider of Security Lifecycle Management solutions, today announced that it has joined the McAfee® Security Innovation Alliance(TM) (SIA) partner program. As part of this program, Tufin will integrate its award-winning Tufin Security Suite (TSS) with McAfee Firewall Enterprise (formerly Sidewinder) and the McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator® (ePO(TM)) software.

The joint solution will enable McAfee customers to take advantage of Tufin's award winning SecureTrack and SecureChange Workflow products for firewall operations management, security optimization, compliance auditing, and change automation.

"We are delighted that Tufin has joined the McAfee Security Innovation Alliance program," said Ed Barry, senior director for the McAfee Security Innovation Alliance. "When Tufin completes its integration, we expect our joint solution to stimulate powerful new efficiencies and cost savings for security and compliance, a key goal of the SIA program."

Tufin's SecureTrack(TM), SecureChange(TM) Workflow products, which make up the core of its Tufin Security Suite(TM), help security operations teams to manage change, minimize risks and dramatically reduce manual, repetitive tasks through automation. Tufin's open extensible architecture, the Tufin Open Platform (TOP), enables McAfee to seamlessly extend Tufin's automated policy management to its McAfee Firewall Enterprise solution, providing joint customers a cohesive, automated framework for network security policy management.

McAfee ePO software is the first platform that lets enterprises and governments centrally manage security and compliance products from multiple vendors, offering unprecedented cost savings and return on investment. With more than 35,000 customers and managing close to 60 million PCs and servers, this unique platform is helping McAfee SIA partners to extend their reach and create complementary functionality.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
