Tufin Previous Solutions

Robert Letson
Director at Visa Inc.
The previous solution was written in-house. We had a product called Skybox and whoever wrote the app would query Skybox for compliance, etc. Then, it would generate a spreadsheet, and we had to work off the spreadsheets. They sort of knew that this wasn't very efficient. View full review »

The switch to Tufin was done before I got to this company, but if I had to guess, I imagine somebody tried to jump out of the window or thought, "I'm going to go nuts if I have to look up one object in a pool of 30,000 and 8,000 rules." It's over 80 firewalls. View full review »

Change Manager at a pharma/biotech company with 10,001+ employees
It was clear that no one was managing the shop floor network firewalls. Right now, there are no tools to do that. As we are hardening and locking down firewalls, the requirement to maintain and manage them becomes increasingly more challenging. I don't think there was any tool before Tufin. The rules were historically stored in CSM and operated out of CSM. Before that, there wasn't any other way to perform a regular analysis and maintenance of firewall rules in this way from a security and policy perspective. View full review »

NetworkS2695
Network Security Operations at a insurance company with 10,001+ employees
We were using Tufin before, as well, but it was not the same. It was separated into localized instances and regions. We sort of saw that the volume of changes were coming in high. The patience from the business side was getting low to invest the time that it used to take to make firewall changes. Therefore, it was inevitable that we need to purchase a solution.

NetworkS2260
Network/Security Engineer at a leisure / travel company with 51-200 employees
We did not have a previous solution. We were moving towards automation and we wanted something that would save time in doing firewall queues and creating firewall rules. We were looking for a good tool and Tufin was one of them. It is a multipurpose tool that gives us topologies, and auditing and alerting. View full review »
Ben Stern
Service Engineer at G2 Deployment Advisors
Clients typically choose Tufin for a feature that it supports which other solutions don't have: a certain firewall or perhaps provisionings on a certain firewall. Tufin tends to release new versions very quickly with changes that are high-value. Also, as mentioned, the SecureChange workflow solution is very flexible. View full review »
Michael Utech
Network Security Engineer at Customer Worldpay
I've used Tufin, Firemon, AlgoSec, and all the other solutions at other companies before, and seen what we've been able to do with them. So, when I came to this company, it was just like, "Okay what's our tool? Oh, it's Tufin. What do you mean nobody's using it?" View full review »

NetworkE78f6
Network Engineer at a healthcare company with 10,001+ employees
We knew we needed to switch based on past lessons we learned. The overall goal was to have a better and efficient system going forward. With automation on the grid, this was a win-win solution for us. It was able to provide us everything that we were looking for and also help us meet our roadmap goals as well. View full review »
John_Ford
Managing Director at Midpoint Technology
We chose this solution a long time ago. We've been a partner for almost nine years. Because they spun off and many of the individuals who were part of the envelopment of products within the security space, like Ruby, came out of the Check Point environment. We're a very, very strong Check Point enterprise player, so we feel that anybody who understands product development and product distribution across large environments has to be a key for us. We really weren't interested in products from other resellers, or we weren't interested in products from auditors. We were interested in products from people who knew how to develop products for the marketplace. So that's been a key for us. The other piece is the ability to scale, and then finally, the ability to automate with that scalability. We just don't find others as scalable as Tufin is. View full review »

William Temple
CyberSecurity Supervisor at a energy/utilities company with 10,001+ employees
The previous system that we used was something that was homegrown, just built in-house. It was only a ticketing system. Everything else was done manually. My employees would spend days just trying to figure out where the rules needed to be applied, and how the rules needed to be designed. It was a very long, manual process. View full review »
ManagerOc5c3
Manager of Security Engineering at Global Payments inc
I have used auditing tools in the past, so I was already aware of Tufin. When I saw the processes in my company where I worked were manual, I recommended a solution, saying, "We need to expand the solution from our other company to here, as well. It will simplify our processes." View full review »
Tom Loeber
Services Engineer at AccessIT Group
There were not enough resources to do the changes themselves. We definitely went offshoring. Now, you see a lot of that coming back because there is not enough people. We needed a system to do it. View full review »
Shaun Slatton
Automation Engineer at Cox Communications
Prior to implementing this solution, the majority of our security engineering's time was spent working with these policy requests. It was a manual process where a requester would submit and Excel sheet, and the changes were being done from there. This was not leaving time for that team to work on projects and initiatives that were furthering or bettering the company. We started looking into Tufin as a way to automate some of that process and free up some of their time. View full review »

Securitya49e
Security Engineer at a government with 10,001+ employees
We did not use a solution prior to this one, but we needed Tufin to give access to other teams to view the policies. We did not want to give them direct access to the firewall management system. View full review »
Samuel Taxis
Information Security Engineer at a tech company with 1,001-5,000 employees
We had a bunch of issues with junior engineers causing problems and people not knowing what was changed or what happened. We needed a solution that produced very easy to understand and quantifiable change reports. We had a home-built solution before Tufin had maintenance issues because it was our own, and we had support issues with it. It sometimes worked, and sometimes didn't work. Tufin was a very easy shoe-in replacement for that solution. View full review »
