Tufin Technologies Announces New Release of Flagship Product, SecureTrack™ 4.2 Firewall Operations Management Solution

New Version Provides Firewall Operations Teams With Unparalleled Levels of Policy Enforcement Capabilities, Granular Reporting and Extended Firewall Device Support

RAMAT GAN, ISRAEL--(Marketwire - March 25, 2008) - Tufin Technologies, the leading provider of Firewall Operations Management solutions, today announced the release of SecureTrack 4.2. The latest version of its flagship product helps firewall operations teams control and manage policy changes, analyze risks and ensure business continuity. With SecureTrack 4.2, Tufin extends its offering, providing an unmatched level of reporting granularity and robust implementation and enforcement of corporate security policies throughout the enterprise. General availability for SecureTrack 4.2 is scheduled for April 28, 2008.

Key New Features in Tufin's SecureTrack 4.2:

-- Business-Ownership Change Reporting -- Users can now receive a change
   report specific to their areas of business responsibility. The report
   highlights policy changes affecting assigned network resources and
   allows corrective action when required.

-- Enhanced Security Compliance Alerts -- Compliance monitoring has been
   enhanced with a sophisticated alert system that pinpoints any policy
   change in violation of pre-defined corporate policies. With
   SecureTrack 4.2, compliance monitoring can be implemented for two types
   of traffic that affect business critical services and/or introduce new
   risks, namely:
     -- Business-critical traffic -- traffic that should always be allowed
     -- High security risk traffic -- traffic that should always be blocked

-- Expanded Rule Usage Analysis -- Firewall traffic logs are recorded and
   analyzed to provide comprehensive statistical reports on rule usage.
   SecureTrack 4.2 extends this capability to Cisco and Juniper firewalls,
   in addition to Check Point firewalls, allowing tighter security and rule
   base optimization for overall performance improvement.

-- Support for Cisco and Juniper Virtual Firewalls -- SecureTrack 4.2
   introduces comprehensive change management, security policy optimization
   and risk analysis capabilities for Cisco and Juniper virtual firewalls.

"With SecureTrack 4.2, Tufin brings security policy compliance to the next level, while also enhancing firewall management capabilities to allow for full support of multiple vendors," said Reuven Harrison, CTO, Tufin Technologies. "Our ability to respond quickly to market needs and customer requirements is of utmost importance and has allowed us to provide excellent service, address the most common pitfalls encountered by security operations teams and extend SecureTrack's technological leadership."

"As the security marketplace matures and regulatory requirements become even more stringent, large organizations are required to have firm security policies in place. The tricky part is the implementation and enforcement of these policies, and that is where SecureTrack comes in," said Tim Tyler, Vice President of Sales for Vigilar, a leading Tufin reseller in the United States. "SecureTrack 4.2's new reporting capabilities enable each stakeholder to receive tailored-to-need change reports, making it apparent that Tufin really has the user in mind."
