The key for modern applications is accessibility to the Internet. Without access, business is simply on hold. Unfortunately, the Internet can also be the conduit for cyber threats and other malicious activity. New vulnerabilities and advanced malware can bypass traditional firewalls, proxies, IPS and other security controls.
Enterprises are adopting Private and Public Clouds on top of their physical data centers, which are built of multiple vendors and technologies. This leads to a heterogeneous IT and new challenges. In a physical environment, IT has full control via firewalls, but in a public cloud, IT has no visibility since they are outside of the network. Managing security across this heterogeneous environment is a big challenge and also ensuring Compliance & Standardization across all vendors and platforms with auditing, reporting and documenting are also important.
Business Continuity is very important for Security Architects; they need to connect applications across all platforms. This is where the Tufin Orchestration Suite comes up with Unified Security Management across Heterogeneous Environments. This is the very reason EthicalHat teamed up with Tufin. Tufin’s app-centric approach enables one to manage connectivity if heterogeneous apps, push policy changes to relevant groups/firewalls automatically and securely, while remaining agnostic to infrastructure.
