Tufin, provider of Network Security Policy Orchestration solutions, has announced the launch of the Tufin Technology Alliance Partner (TAP) Program. The program extends the capabilities of the Tufin Orchestration Suite to make the platform more accessible with Tufin’s REST APIs, opening a new avenue to meet customer demand. With the addition of inaugural members Cybereason, Cyber Observer, DFLabs, Reposify, and Swimlane, Tufin Orchestration Suite will initially address four new critical use cases: security incident enrichment, security incident response, compliance, and risk assessment.
“As the first security policy orchestration vendor to formalise an alliance partner program, Tufin continues to advance our leadership,” says Pamela Cyr, senior vice president of business development, Tufin. “Partnering with Tufin allows leading and strategic vendors to better meet our mutual customers’ needs for integrated solutions that improve their business agility and security. We welcome our new partners and look forward to solving the key challenges our customers are addressing.”

Security incident enrichment
Utilising the network security policy information within the Tufin Orchestration Suite, investigation of security incidents is enhanced, reducing the time to resolution.
“Tufin provides valuable insights into an organisation’s network security posture and policies,” says Dario Forte, Founder and CEO of DFLabs. “As a member of the TAP program, our joint customers are assured that the DFLabs IncMan SOAR platform and Tufin Orchestration Suite are seamlessly integrated to automate security orchestration and incident response workflows.”
Cody Cornell, CEO and founder of Swimlane, adds, “Swimlane is committed to improving cybersecurity threat response capabilities and lowering incident response times by integrating with products like Tufin.
“By integrating with Tufin products, Swimlane and Tufin together allow incident response teams to more accurately and quickly understand their network configurations during the IR process, and take safe remediation steps at the network level, often under fully automated scenarios at machine speeds. These integrations enable enterprise IR teams to triage and respond to security events with much greater efficiency.”
Security incident response
Automating the network response to security threats to control the last line of defence by orchestrating changes to multi-vendor firewalls, other network devices, and hybrid cloud environments.
“Cybereason is excited to join the Tufin Alliance Program, and our integration will consolidate attack intelligence and network policy management to empower security teams at our joint customers to make informed decisions and execute their response through automation,” says Sam Curry, chief security officer, Cybereason. “Cybereason customers can continue to detect endpoint attacks while Tufin augments their incident response process to be more consistent, efficient, and comprehensive across their multi-vendor, multi-platform network.”
Integrating with Tufin Orchestration Suite, centralised compliance solutions can incorporate deep network policy information to enhance the ability to meet industry regulations and internal policies.
Itzik Weinstein, CEO of Cyber Observer, explains, “Cyber Observer is excited for the opportunity to partner with Tufin and we’ve already had several mutual customers that have benefited from the cooperation, enabling us to deliver near real-time posture and awareness management to enterprise senior cybersecurity stakeholders.”
Risk assessment and reporting services enrich the Tufin Orchestration Suite’s network risk intelligence, which can be used for automatic enforcement of security policy throughout the entire heterogeneous, hybrid cloud (multi-vendor, multi-cloud) environment.
“Reposify is excited about the new partnership with Tufin. It will enable our customers to better protect their global digital assets from security breaches within and beyond their firewall,” says Idan Moyal, co-founder and CTO, Reposify. “Combining our heuristic technology with Tufin’s powerful security policy automation solution means that together we can offer our clients a holistic and seamless cybersecurity solution using the most advanced technologies.”
Tufin has a history of integrating the Tufin Orchestration Suite with vendors such as Check Point Software, Cisco, Fortinet, Palo Alto Networks, VMware and others. Now through the TAP program and Tufin’s use of REST APIs, additional partners can be integrated into the leading network security policy management platform.
“We see a need in the industry for vendors to collaborate to better meet the full needs of the customer,” says Scott Crawford, research director for the Information Security Channel at 451 Research. “Security vendors who work together to solve customers’ problems extend the value of both organisations and address the most pressing needs of the security industry. A policy-based approach to security provides the basis for enterprise organisations to increase business agility and meet demands for continuous compliance and reduce the attack surface.”
