Scalable Network Security is Paramount for Business

By Enterprise Networking Mag | Thursday, September 27, 2018

Today, the security experts across the globe are taking new initiatives to secure their business networks. Any cybersecurity breach can permanently damage a brand’s image and can make way for huge fines. Thus security professionals are resorting to tools such as next-generation firewalls (NGFW) to secure the enterprise networks.

Digital businesses are operating at a pace like never before in the business world, and the speed at which the changes have to be made in the firewalls has increased drastically. To stay competitive in the fast-changing market, the infrastructure management teams need to equip themselves with the right tools and the knowledge to operate at this accelerated pace.

Recently Tufin, a network security policy orchestration vendor, has come to rescue these managers by offering them Tufin Orchestration Suite R18-1 (TOS 18-1). The suite includes several new features, including enhanced integration and support for Cisco’s innovative network security solution, Firepower.

Customers are now easily empowered to make changes across all the firewalls in a matter of minutes with automated tools. Traditionally, the migration process takes a significant amount of time and often is filled with several errors. These mistakes, if not corrected, are carried over to the other systems, which creates confusion. These complexities hold companies back from upgrading to new platforms.

To ensure that companies meet the mandates, they need firewalls that include the ability to automate the process of monitoring, tracking, and managing the expiration of firewall rules. Keeping up with firewall rules is of utmost importance for digital businesses in both regulated and non-regulated industries. The processes involving the changes that can be made in the regulations are daunting as the number of rules, and their complexity can be overwhelming.  Thus they require to stay well-informed about the processes and can also use tools such as Firepower to create a rapid and error-free migration path.
