Tufin Technologies Moves Beyond Firewall Auditing to Support Cisco Routers and Switches

Tufin SecureTrack Version 4.3. Provides Comprehensive Change Tracking for Network Devices

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - August 6, 2008) - Black Hat Briefings & Training, Booth P -- Tufin Technologies, the leading provider of Security Lifecycle Management solutions, today announced that SecureTrack's capabilities have extended beyond firewall auditing to support of critical network devices, namely Cisco routers and switches. This provides security managers with a unified easy-to-use interface for simultaneous monitoring of both firewall operations and network devices. SecureTrack 4.3 provides comprehensive change tracking for device configurations, access control lists (ACLs) and routing tables, with real-time change alerts and reports.

"Traditionally, SecureTrack helps security officers streamline firewall operations. With version 4.3, however, we made a transition into the broader realm of network operations," said Ruvi Kitov, CEO for Tufin Technologies. "Monitoring routers and switches along side firewalls in a centralized fashion enables our customers to significantly improve overall network control."

"With the expansion of SecureTrack's capabilities into the area of network operations, Tufin now offers a more comprehensive solution that will bring easier functionality to our customers," said Alberto Dosal, president and CEO with Tufin's channel partner, Compuquip Technologies, which is one of the largest IT providers in Florida. "We're excited that SecureTrack's ability to provide a top-down view of every change to firewall policies has been extended to network devices as well, thereby eliminating the need to use multiple policy management solutions from different vendors."

Additional New Features in SecureTrack 4.3:

Automated PCI-DSS Audit Report -- Makes it fast and simple to prepare for an internal or external audit. The report provides in-depth information about the company's PCI compliance level, also showing where improvements are needed and recommending how to address them. The PCI-DSS solution combines various SecureTrack technologies in a single automated report making it easier than ever to achieve proactive compliance with PCI-DSS.

Rule Shadowing Analysis -- as an extension to its policy analysis capability, SecureTrack now also identifies rules that shadow other rules, either fully or partially. This information combined with the Rule Usage Analysis reports enables comprehensive firewall optimization.

Full Juniper Accountability -- seamless integration with Juniper firewalls that includes:

--  Real-time change detection for robust configuration management,
    replacing the need for device configuration polling
    
--  Complete information on who made what change and when for Juniper
    firewalls
    

Availability

General Availability for SecureTrack 4.3 is scheduled for August 14, 2008.
