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.
