BOSTON, Nov. 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Tufin®, a market-leading provider of Network Security Policy Orchestration solutions, has joined the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Partner Network (APN) and made Tufin Orchestration Suite available on AWS Marketplace to increase visibility with AWS customers. Additionally, the Tufin Orchestration Suite has enhanced its end-to-end change automation features for AWS security groups, allowing faster implementation of AWS architectures, improved application and connectivity uptime, and increased security posture.
By suggesting the optimal choice of security groups and automating the associated rule changes when requesting connection to an AWS instance, Tufin Orchestration Suite helps accelerate architecture implementation. Users are now advised on which target security group to change based on tagging and additional instances, simplifying change design and reducing misconfigurations. Automatic change verifications against relevant security groups will also lead to increased accuracy and value-added security. "Change automation is in high demand in enterprise development environments, where the pressure is high to deploy applications quickly and securely," said Ofer Or, Vice President, Products, Tufin. "With Tufin Orchestration Suite now available on AWS Marketplace, we're taking our commitment to solving change management challenges a step further. Our listing on AWS Marketplace benefits customers by eliminating misconfiguration risks, providing guidance for joining relevant security groups, and ensuring that enterprise developers are adhering to enterprise network security policies." As cloud-based services and software-defined networking (SDN) become the norm, the ability to easily manage security policies surrounding these technologies must catch up. Properly managing and protecting enterprise networks while reaping the many benefits of AWS can be achieved by reducing network management complexity through automation. Tufin Orchestration Suite delivers centralized management with policy-based change automation of Amazon Virtual Private Clouds (Amazon VPCs), security groups and instances in addition to managing on-premises data centers for complete visibility across the enterprise via a "single pane of glass" solution. With Tufin, the critical process of extending network security management to business applications deployed on AWS is simple, secure and compliant.
