How do organisations benefit from security policy orchestration?


Published on

If you can pull out all the stops for your cybersecurity, then you should. The threat landscape is more complex, uncertain, and active than ever. Not only that, but attack criteria is not limited to big businesses with big bucks. No matter the industry, company size, company revenue – no matter anything – your business is on an attacker's radar.

In light of this, businesses know they need to minimise their attack surface as best as possible. In turn, organisations today are all about security layers. As long as your organisation's security is onion-esque, no one can say you didn't try.

The demands of businesses security and agility today have created a highly sophisticated, enterprise environment. This makes it increasingly difficult for businesses to stay on top on policy changes. As a result, organisations may find themselves confronted by compliance conflicts and vulnerabilities.

Cutting back on network configurations and changes is not an option. Thus, organisations are increasingly turning to security policy management to address the problem.

Take it away, Tufin

To better outline how security policy management works, we'll use Tufin as an example. We've chosen Tufin because the company is a major player in this field, and who better to demonstrate than the network security policy orchestration leader?

Tufin's Orchestration Suite™ zeros in on automation to better business agility for even the most complex networks. In particular, Tufin also promises to unify security policy and provide advanced automation capabilities to eliminate errors from manual processes and ensure continuous compliance.

By automating changes, organisations can implement modifications across the board at speed and securely. With Tufin, organisations can make security changes in a matter of minutes, rather than days.

Of course, as mentioned before, enterprises are often operating with more sophisticated, hybrid networks. Tufin comes to the rescue by enabling security policy management across enterprise firewalls and private and public cloud. Many businesses today will have firewalls and/or routers from different vendors, which does contribute some added complexity. However, Tufin alleviates the challenges of this by fashioning a topology map, offering a real-time view into the enterprise environment.

The Tufin Orchestration Suite™ splits into SecureApp™ (for application connectivity automation), SecureChange™ (for network change automation), and SecureTrack™ (for security and compliance). In turn, the Tufin suite spins all the plates so you don't have to.
