UK and US businesses report increased complexity and trends like Cloud and virtualization require a more automated IT network; one third acknowledge frequent firewall outages and human error
CHATHAM, N.J. and LONDON, Oct. 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Tufin Technologies, the leading provider of Security Policy Orchestration, today announced the results of a recent survey exploring the changing face of network security operations. The Tufin survey reveals that C-level managers and IT professionals are tackling increasingly complex enterprise networks, with trends such as virtualization, IPv6 and the Cloud requiring more automation of network management. The Research also demonstrates an ever-changing IT network with companies from financial services, telecom, technology and public sectors facing frequent network configuration changes, and suffering from human error and recurrent firewall outages. The research was conducted by ResearchNOW, which surveyed more than 500 C-level managers and senior IT professionals from companies of 1,000 or more in the US and the UK.
Key findings of the research include:
"This research shows that network security has become too complex to manually manage, especially with the introduction of new technologies such as Cloud, virtualization and IPv6," said Reuven Harrison, co-founder and CTO, Tufin. "The key to meeting these challenges is automation and orchestration which will increase IT agility while maintaining security and compliance across the network."
These findings align with Tufin's expanded vision and rebranded solution set, announced last week. Version R13-3 of the Tufin Orchestration Suite™ reflects Tufin's vision for Security Policy Orchestration, a new paradigm for automated implementation of network infrastructure changes across heterogeneous environments. Security Policy Orchestration goes beyond traditional configuration of individual firewalls. It improves operations between systems, integrates with different network security devices and enhances automation that enables network engineers to efficiently and accurately share policy data with new stakeholders.
