Tufin Continues to Bridge the Gap Between Network Security and Application Management With Tufin Security Suite R13-1

February 26, 2013

PCI DSS Continuous Compliance, Increased Device Support, and Change Provisioning for Cisco Round Out New Product Release

RSA CONFERENCE 2013, SAN FRANCISCO and RAMAT GAN, Israel, February 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ –

Tufin Technologies, the market-leading provider of Security Policy Management
solutions [http://www.tufin.com ], today announced version R13-1 of its award-winning
Tufin Security Suite (TSS). TSS R13-1 offers a set of strategic enhancements that break
new ground in network security operations, compliance and change management, while
continuing to lead the market for automated application connectivity, which according to
survey data published today by Tufin,
[https://www.tufin.com/about-us/news-and-media/press-releases/2013/%20february-25,-2013-1 ]
is the number one use case for firewall management.

“By recognizing the integral role that network security systems such as firewalls play
in assuring not only application protection but also performance and availability,
Tufin… provides much needed closure to a gap in comprehensive application management
that far too often goes neglected, yet one that can have a substantial impact on the
business if not managed on a par with other aspects of business-critical applications”
said Enterprise Management Associates analyst Jim Frey in a 2012 report titled “Tufin
Closes the Application Gap in Complex Firewall Management with SecureApp”.

In order to address an expanded set of business requirements, Tufin has added key
enhancements in R13-1, including:

        - Continuous Compliance with PCI DSS - New automation continuously monitors
          all firewall policy changes for compliance with PCI DSS and flags any change that
          appears to break compliance. TSS's enhanced Compliance Browser provides a real time
          view of the organization's compliance posture with drill-downs to analysis and
          remediation tools. It transforms PCI DSS firewall audit preparation from a week-long
          endeavor to "one- click", enabling organizations to quickly achieve compliance with
          the firewall-related PCI DSS requirements.
        - New Device Support: Committed to delivering deeper and wider support for Cisco
          devices, TSS now supports Cisco zone-based firewalls and Cisco IOS XR. TSS R13-1 also
          includes support for Fortinet FortiManager.
        - Network Topology Enhancements: TSS's network topology now includes support for
          virtual routers and MPLS VPNs, resulting in a more detailed and accurate network
          topology map that allows security operations teams to more efficiently and accurately
          plan changes.
        - Automated Change Provisioning for Cisco ASA firewalls: Delivering on Tufin's
          vision for end-to-end policy management, SecureChange now automates change
          provisioning for Cisco ASA firewalls.
        - Application Connection Discovery: Automatically identifies the possible
          resources and connections participating in networked enterprise applications. This
          enables application owners and network engineers to easily complete an application
          connection requirement without thorough knowledge of the network.
        - Application Connection Analysis and Diagnostics: Provides an instant snapshot
          of the relationship between an application connection and the underlying network and
          firewall policies, enabling network and applications teams to quickly diagnose
          connectivity problems or plan network and policy changes.

“The innovator’s dilemma is to execute on the roadmap in a way that balances short and
long term customer requirements,” said Reuven Harrison, CTO, Tufin. “TSS R13-1 strikes
that balance by adding support for new devices while extending the depth and breadth of
automation across key fronts. With firewalls acting as the lynchpin between applications
and the network, we believe that the enhancements to TSS R13-1 foster collaboration
between applications and network teams, thereby exponentially increasing the business
value of firewall management.”

Pricing and Availability

TSS R13-1 will be generally available in April 2013. Pricing is broken down by
product: SecureTrack starts at $20,000 for 10 firewalls, SecureChange at $35,000 for 10
firewalls, and SecureApp at $45,000 for 10 applications.
