Firewall Management System IPV6 Ready

Tufin Technologies : 07 June, 2012  (New Product)
Tufin Security Suite has been enhanced at release R12-3 in preparation for the launch of Internet Protocol version 6
Firewall Management System IPV6 Ready
Tufin Technologies has announced release R12-3 of its Tufin Security Suite (TSS). Tufin’s enterprise and service provider customers can now use TSS R12-3 to monitor and manage IPv6 firewall policies.Other key enhancements to R12-3 include support for Cisco’s high performance Nexus routers and a new interface for SecureChange, Tufin’sSecurity Change Automation solution.

“IPv6 has two distinct security implications,” said Greg Young, Research Vice President, Gartner, Inc. “firewalls must be resilient to IPv6 based attacks, and they must also be able to correctly alert and report on the IPv6 traffic they handle.  Gartner is concerned about the possibility of false negatives by firewalls during IPv6 migrations, whereby firewall internals pass the traffic correctly but the ‘black box’ of alerting isnot dealing with the security implications.”

Widely recognized to deliver substantial security and performance improvements to IP networks, the migration to IPv6 has been underway for some time. Tufin’s IPv6 support will enable Security Service Providers and leading-edge organizations to centrally manage IPv6 firewall and router security policies, while leveraging TSS’ability to reduce risk, improve efficiencies, and ensure Continuous Compliance with internal and regulatory standards.  Tufin also supports the Internet Society’s efforts to promote IPv6 adoption and timed the release of TSS R12-3 with World IPv6 Day.

TSS R12-3, with support for IPv6,is currently available for CheckPoint and Cisco devices and includes:

* IPv6 network connectivity for Tufin appliances
* Viewing security policies including IPv6 addresses
* Change monitoring, revision comparison and change reporting for IPv6 policies
* Cleanup and optimization for IPv6 policies
* IPv6 object lookup

Additionally, Tufin SecureChange now features an all-new user interface, which is simpler, more intuitive, and more powerful than ever. Some features of the user interface includean intuitive new startup page including ticket status, inbox, and more. The new SecureChange user interface also features a new Policy Designer with one-click change design and provisioning. After an access request is submitted, the Policy Designer automatically displays the recommended rule/ACL changes, which can be automatically provisioned at the click of a button.

Finally, Tufin Security Suite now supports Cisco Nexus Routers, to enable large datacenters to benefit from end-to-end, central Security Policy Management.

“We’re a fast growing company in a competitive market – much of our success is due to making the right roadmap choices, of balancing our customers’ current and future requirements,” said Reuven Harrison,CTO and co-founder, Tufin Technologies. “With TSS R12-3, regardless of where our customers are on the IPv6 adoption curve, Tufin will enable a smooth transition to the new protocol while still meeting the performance, security and compliance requirements that are core to their business.”
