Tufin Technologies Launches the Tufin Open Platform (TOP), Adding Integrated Solutions With Network Security and Application Security and Delivery Leaders F5, Blue Coat and Fortinet Into Its Security Lifecycle Management Eco-System

Open APIs and Strong Partnerships Enable Tufin to Provide a Single, Unified Platform for Managing Security and Network Policies

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 04/22/09 -- RSA Conference -- Tufin Technologies, the leading provider of Security Lifecycle Management solutions, today announced the launch of the Tufin Open Platform (TOP) alliance. TOP is both an industry-wide alliance of leading security and networking vendors and an open, multi-vendor Security Lifecycle Management platform purpose-built to enable streamlined, policy-driven network and security management. Already providing deep integration with leading firewall vendors such as Check Point, Juniper, Cisco and Fortinet, the TOP launch features integration with F5 and Blue Coat appliances and completion of Fortinet's FortiVerified interoperability testing. By extending Tufin's award-winning policy management and auditing to Unified Threat Management (UTM) and application security and delivery systems, joint customers will be better equipped to manage day-to-day operations of today's complex, intertwined, dynamic networks.

"With TOP, Tufin has demonstrated it understands how its policy and change management automation fits into the bigger picture," said Richard Steinnon, principal analyst, IT Harvest. "A strong eco-system of best-of-breed partners provides a host of practical, measurable benefits such as faster deployment and increased service levels that can make or break a customer relationship. Knowing that in IT, the devil is always in the details, partnerships that can smoothly deliver operational improvements without creating new setbacks will be strongly rewarded by the marketplace."

"F5 customers rely on our ability to solve their most pressing application delivery and security problems," said Mark Vondemkamp, Director of Product Marketing, Security and Acceleration Products, F5 Networks. "The one thing that's constant in their business is change -- new people, new applications, or events that require network, application and security operations teams to respond. F5 welcomes Tufin into our Technology Alliance Program and looks forward to a strong and fruitful partnership with Tufin. Tufin's strong automation and policy-driven approach to managing IT and security operations will enable our joint customers to fully leverage the flexibility, agility, and reliability they have come to expect from F5."

"Because Fortinet excels in securing high performance, high throughput and highly dynamic network environments, we understand what a daunting task managing complex network environments can be -- even for the savviest administrators," said Anthony James, vice president of Products, Fortinet. "The integration of Fortinet's FortiManager appliance and Tufin's automated policy management capabilities presents a powerful combination for helping customers of FortiGate multi-threat security appliances manage their complex multi-vendor environments. This will give customers a competitive edge to maintain a strong defense against a constantly changing threat landscape and confidently manage their security operations."

Introducing the Tufin Open Platform

Eliminating the complexity and potential errors stemming from managing multiple administration interfaces, TOP is designed to deliver centralized policy change analysis and tracking, configuration change and compliance monitoring, performance optimization and auditing across a wide variety of security and networking devices.

Tufin has released the TOP Software Development Kit (SDK) that enables technology partners to easily integrate a wide range of network devices with its SecureTrack and SecureChange Workflow solutions. The TOP SDK provides all of the information needed to develop plug-ins quickly and easily. All plug-ins that are part of the Tufin environment are non-intrusive for the security device and automatically implement the configuration retrieval logic for TOP partner devices.

The TOP Alliance Program provides technology partners and third party professionals with the Tufin SDK, plug-in development, participation in TOP forums, events and roadmap development. F5 and Blue Coat plug-ins are available immediately from Tufin at http://www.tufin.com/TOP.

"No single solution, no matter how wonderful, innovative, and disruptive it is, exists in a vacuum," said Ruvi Kitov, CEO, Tufin Technologies. "TOP is a major milestone for Tufin because it heralds our expansion from a product to a platform. As a best-of-breed solutions provider, we understand what a winning proposition a healthy eco-system can be for participants. Launching with such well respected, like-minded partners that share our commitment to provide secure, reliable, policy-driven security and network solutions is a privilege, and we look forward to deepening our existing relationships and expanding to the eco-system."

As part of the TOP Launch, on Wednesday, April 22 at room 232 of the Moscone Center, Tufin will be hosting a TOP "Lunch Launch" event featuring renowned security expert Richard Steinnon and TOP partners F5, Fortinet and Blue Coat discussing the future of policy-driven networks. Food will be served from 12:00-12:30pm, Richard will begin his presentation at 12:30 and the discussion and partner panel will conclude at 1:30pm.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
The standardization of container runtimes and images has sparked the creation of an almost overwhelming number of new open source projects that build on and otherwise work with these specifications. Of course, there's Kubernetes, which orchestrates and manages collections of containers. It was one of the first and best-known examples of projects that make containers truly useful for production use. However, more recently, the container ecosystem has truly exploded. A service mesh like Istio addr...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.
Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Business professionals no longer wonder if they'll migrate to the cloud; it's now a matter of when.

As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
