With enhanced Change Management, Risk Analysis, and Compliance functions, and the new Firewall OS Monitoring capability, SecureTrack 4.1 is the ideal solution for firewall policy management and continuous compliance requirements
RAMAT GAN, Israel (PRWEB) October 30, 2007
"We're seeing an increase in the use of third party tools for firewall operations management, especially in networks with firewalls from more than one vendor," said Greg Young, research vice president at Gartner. "Compliance and complexity are driving the requirement for better capability in optimizing the existing firewall rules base, and examining the impact of any proposed rule changes. The overwhelming majority of breaches at the firewall are from misconfiguration rather than any wily hacking of firewall vulnerabilities."
The industry's first appliance-based solution drastically simplifies installation and maintenance and provides a single point of contact for support. The Tufin SecureTrack Appliance is offered in two models:
-- T-500 for medium-sized and large organizations
-- T-1000 for service providers and very large organizations
"With enhanced Change Management, Risk Analysis, and Compliance functions, and the new Firewall OS Monitoring capability, SecureTrack 4.1 is the ideal solution for firewall policy management and continuous compliance requirements," said Brad Reed, director of Internet Security at Miami, Florida-based Compuquip Technologies, Inc., a Tufin channel partner. Reed added, "The introduction of Tufin's appliance-based solution will make it far easier for large organizations to purchase and deploy."
Improved Firewall OS Configuration and Performance Monitoring
SecureTrack 4.1 new Firewall OS Monitoring feature, for organizations using Check Point FireWall-1, places enhanced configuration and performance monitoring capabilities in the hands of firewall administrators. SecureTrack now monitors and logs changes to critical Check Point FireWall-1 OS components, including network interfaces, routing tables and critical system resources. The performance monitoring capabilities track the utilization of critical system level resources like CPU, memory and disk space for enhanced business continuity.
"Tufin continues to lead the Firewall Operations Management market through constant improvements," said Shaul Efraim, vice president of marketing and business development at Tufin Technologies. "SecureTrack 4.1 brings together never-before available convenience for firewall operations teams, offering an easily-installed appliance option, as well as new capabilities that greatly increase monitoring capabilities for firewall configuration and performance - a key business continuity solution that directly answers many of the challenges faced by security administrators."
