Automating the entire network security policy change process
CURRENT THREAT SCENARIO
Implementing and enforcing corporate security policies has become a complex, time-consuming, and often error-prone operation. As infrastructure expands to include thousands of components from multiple vendors, organizations are also being required to comply with stringent government and industry standards. To meet these growing pressures and keep costs under control, security teams need to harness the power of automation.
Tufin SecureChange™ Workflow is the first change management solution designed specifically for firewall, switch and router policy change requests. SecureChange Workflow manages and audits the entire lifecycle of a policy change request, from submission through design, risk analysis, approval, and implementation.
SecureChange Workflow proactively enforces security policy throughout the company and provides active risk analysis to prevent network exposure due to misconfigured, obsolete, non-compliant or conflicting network security policies. All changes are checked for compliance with configurable corporate security directives as well as industry best practices and regulatory requirements. Throughout the process, SecureChange Workflow maintains a complete audit trail.
Working side by side with existing network infrastructure assets, SecureChange Workflow provides security operations teams with numerous benefits, including:
Increased network security
Enforcement of corporate security policy
Increased operational efficiency
Compliance with industry and regulatory standards
Automatic change control
Proactive risk management
Improved IT governance
Prior to SecureChange Workflow, there has not been a change management solution designed specifically for security policy changes. Most organizations use web forms and emailing procedures, others use standard change request management systems, which do not provide any risk analysis capabilities and cannot integrate with firewalls or other network devices. SecureChange Workflow ensures that every stakeholder has the tools and information they need to make the right decisions before and after putting security policy changes into effect, and its robust auditing provides the transparency and clarity required for ongoing security operations and compliance management.
SecureChange Workflow automates the entire network security policy change process, which until now has been a cumbersome, time consuming, error prone manual process. Implementing automated processes for policy change requests dramatically streamlines daily operations and eliminates the exposure caused by misconfigured, non-compliant, conflicting or out of date policies.
