Ramat Gan, Israel, February 24, 2009 - Tufin Technologies, the leading provider of Security Lifecycle Management solutions, today announced the general release of SecureChange Workflow as part of the Tufin Security Suite. First announced in May 2008, SecureChange Workflow is already improving security operations for several companies managing hundreds of network devices. Tufin's breakthrough new product enables companies to automate the entire network security policy change management lifecycle. With SecureChange Workflow, IT managers can proactively enforce security policies while increasing operational efficiency and ensuring compliance with regulations such as PCI DSS.
"I frequently see large enterprises using spreadsheets or home grown tools to track firewall rule changes," said Greg Young, Research Vice president for Gartner, Inc. "This is a highly error prone process and wasteful of highly trained resources who should instead be spending their time watching for attacks or tuning the firewall."
SecureChange Workflow, a companion product to SecureTrack, Tufin's leading firewall operations management product, is the first solution that actively manages the entire lifecycle of network security policy change requests. From a change request by a business user, through risk analysis, business continuity analysis, approval, implementation and auditing, SecureChange Workflow automates each step of the process, making it ideal for any organization managing multiple network devices such as firewalls, routers and switches.
SecureChange Workflow Key Features
Security change automation: Automatic processing of security change requests to simplify the user experience while making network administrators more effective.
Integration with SecureTrack: Complementary functionality of SecureChange Workflow and SecureTrack on single T-Series appliance or server.
Separation of duties: Support for multiple roles within the security change process to meet the most demanding business and regulatory standards.

Customizable change-templates: Templates and workflows can be customized easily to meet the specific requirements of every organization.
"The need for automated security policy change management, across disparate network security systems and processes, is a business imperative," said Reuven Harrison, CTO and Co-founder of Tufin Technologies. "Most security teams have to deal with hundreds of end-user business requirements and lack an effective tool to do so. SecureChange Workflow allows automated translation of unstructured business requirements into configuration changes. This solution is specifically designed for management of security change requests to provide proactive risk analysis while ensuring business continuity and compliance."
