Tufin takes an operational view on firewall rules management

Tufin is one of the promising companies in the firewall rules management market. While security and managing compliance is of primary importance, Tufin also appreciates the operational cost savings benefits of controlling and automating firewall rules administration. The following is a quote for their Automatic Policy Generation press release that hit the wires on June 29th:

"Automating the creation of optimized firewall rule bases is critical to establishing an accurate baseline for increasing network security and reducing operational costs," said Eric Ogren, principal analyst of the Ogren Group. "Well defined firewall rules lower the risk of creating holes in network security, eliminate many of the business disruption issues that can accompany firewall deployments, and reduce the number of costly support calls. Automation ensures that firewall rule bases act on the intelligence discovered from actual observed business traffic."
