Tufin Launches Technology Alliance Partner (TAP) Program

Today Tufin announced the launch of its 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.

As inaugural members, Cybereason, Cyber Observer, DFLabs, Reposify, and Swimlane will enable Tufin Orchestration Suite to initially address four new critical use cases: Security Incident Enrichment, Security Incident Response, Compliance, and Risk Assessment.

Let’s take a quick look at each of the use cases:

Security Incident Enrichment: Utilizing the extensive network security policy information within the Tufin Orchestration Suite, investigation of security incidents is enhanced, reducing the time to resolution.

Security Incident Response: Automating the network response to security threats to control the last line of defense by orchestrating changes to multi-vendor firewalls, other network devices, and hybrid cloud environments.

Compliance: Integrating with Tufin Orchestration Suite, centralized compliance solutions can incorporate deep network policy information to enhance the ability to meet industry regulations and internal policies.

Risk Assessment: 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.

Industry collaboration is crucial and it’s at the heart of Tufin’s business. The TAP program marks an extension of Tufin’s rich history of building our own integrations with technology partners. For over a decade, Tufin has integrated with the market leaders in networking, security, and cloud – to simplify management of the largest, most complex networks in the world, consisting of thousands of firewall and network devices and emerging hybrid cloud infrastructures. Throughout our 13 years, we’ve built integrations and formed strong partnerships with security, networking, and cloud vendors such as AWS, Check Point Software, Cisco, Fortinet, Palo Alto Networks, VMware, and others.

Now through the TAP program and Tufin’s use of REST APIs, many additional partners can be integrated into Tufin Orchestration Suite, the leading network security policy management platform.

Mark McLaughlin, chair and chief executive of Palo Alto Networks, recently told Axios, “No one company can create all the innovation.” He brings up an excellent point. Technology integrations are essential to move the industry forward to better meet the needs of the customer and to address the most pressing cybersecurity concerns. It’s not realistic that one security vendor will develop the golden ticket of security solutions. Instead, we as an industry must put our collective expertise and innovation together. With Tufin’s history of technology alliances and integrations, and now with the launch of the TAP program, we are doing just that: collaborating with our colleagues and enabling our joint customers to overcome their cybersecurity challenges.

We welcome our new partners, thank them for their partnership, and we look forward to developing innovative solutions to meet the ever-changing security needs of our customers.
