Tufin Technologies Receives Three Awards in Two Weeks, Successfully Launches TOP(TM) Alliance, Extending Its Automated Policy Management to Third Party Networking and Security Devices

Strong Partner Relations and Honors From Information Week, SC Magazine, and InfoSecurity Products Guide Highlight Tufin's Ongoing Momentum and Market Leadership

RAMAT GAN, ISRAEL -- (Marketwire) -- 05/05/09 -- Tufin Technologies, the market leading provider of Security Lifecycle Management solutions, today announced that its flagship product, SecureTrack, was named Best Enterprise Security Solution by SC Magazine UK, and was highly commended in the Best Security Management Solution.

These honors come less than two weeks after several key milestones. While at the RSA Conference 2009 in San Francisco, Tufin had an extremely successful launch of the Tufin Open Platform (TOP), featuring a presentation by security expert Richard Stiennon and a panel featuring Tufin partners F5 and Fortinet. TOP is an open technology architecture that allows virtually any networking and security product to easily integrate with Tufin. The TOP alliance includes the technological and business framework enabling customers to centralize their security operations, auditing and change automation around Tufin.

Additionally, Tufin also made InformationWeek's Startup 50 list of young companies recognized for delivering innovative, high value, enterprise ready solutions and was named best Security Lifecycle Management Solution by InfoSecurity Products Guide. These achievements were topped off by winning multiple accolades from SC Magazine while attending last week's InfoSecurity UK Conference.

"Tufin, along with the other 2009 winners, is among today's most respected security companies," said SC Magazine UK Editor, Paul Fisher. "This year's nominations were among the most competitive and Tufin is among an elite group of winners."

"One of my favorite things about being a security analyst is watching innovators in action," said Richard Stiennon, Chief Analyst, IT Harvest. "Tufin developed an extremely useful product that addressed the well known difficulties associated with firewall management. Over a relatively short period of time, Tufin has expanded its product line and now offers a solution set that leads an emerging market category."

The Tufin Solution Set - Setting the Bar for Security Lifecycle Management

Tufin's Security Lifecycle Management solutions automate policy management for leading firewall and networking vendors including Check Point Software, Juniper, Cisco, Fortinet, F5 and BlueCoat, resulting in more manageable, efficient and cost effective security operations. Its flagship product SecureTrack, helps security operations teams to control and manage policy changes, analyze risks, and ensure business continuity. With SecureTrack, managers easily understand the big picture and align operations with corporate and Government security standards.

Tufin SecureChange Workflow manages the entire lifecycle of a policy change request from submission through design, risk analysis, approval, implementation and auditing. All changes are checked for compliance with configurable corporate security directives as well as industry best practices and regulatory requirements and are recorded in order to maintain a robust audit trail.

Tufin Open Platform (TOP) is a technology platform and strategic alliance that enables technology partners to easily integrate a wide range of network devices with Tufin's SecureTrack and SecureChange Workflow solutions. TOP provides partners and customers with a Software Development Kit (SDK) for plugin development that implement the configuration retrieval logic for each network device integrated with Tufin's solutions. Through TOP, SecureTrack and SecureChange Workflow can be extended to provide automated policy management capabilities for any network device, from any vendor.

"We are extremely grateful for all the recent accolades and honors," said Shaul Efraim, VP Products, Marketing and Business Development, Tufin Technologies. "As a company, we have worked long and hard to get to where we are and having our efforts and achievements recognized by such respected industry outlets is both fulfilling and motivating. We are also well aware that our work is just beginning. With strong product line, an excellent team and strong partners, we feel well positioned to continue to innovate and enable security managers to save their organizations time and money while making them more effective at their jobs."

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...
