Tufin Primary Use Case

Arturo Morante
Network Architect at a transportation company with 10,001+ employees
We deployed a proof of concept. We added most of our firewall base to Tufin, although not all. We checked and tested Check Point, Palo Alto, Juniper, Cisco routers, Juniper routers, and F5 load balancers. Mostly we grabbed one instance of each of our technology devices, added it to Tufin, and tried different things. We tried SecureTrack and some basic SecureChange to try to automate our firewall partitions, the firewall "tickets." We presented a form to users to enter the source, destination, service, etc. This was our PoC. Right now, we're in the process of purchasing Tufin. View full review »

We use it for rule re-certification and rule review. Twice a week, we use the Tufin report to see what changes or adds were done to the policies. Finally, we also use it for rule automation. We have it integrated with ServiceNow for rule requests. View full review »

Change Manager at a pharma/biotech company with 10,001+ employees
The primary use case is processing change requests. While our organization has implemented SecureChange and SecureTrack, we are not using either tool rather extensively. Therefore, we are trying to put together a plan for the organization to adopt these tools more firmly. The idea is to be using SecureChange as the primary portal for entering change requests on both the perimeter and shop floor network firewalls. The way we are approaching this is to do a pilot first among a few sites, then bringing it out to a larger group once we feel more comfortable with how the pilot went. The pilot will probably last for a couple weeks. After that, we will roll it out in buckets or groups to the rest of the sites. Then, the primary use case will be using tool for change management and SecureChange, while SecureTrack will be used by our security monitoring group who is tracking for threats. My engagement to date and going forward will be to assist in the planning of the rollout and helping with the rollout. I make sure teams and users who will be using this tool are actually using it, including processes from: * Submitting a firewall change request. * Price or rule requests. * Opening a port. * Firewall maintenance or maintenance processes, e.g., rule cleanup.

The primary use case of Tufin is firewall management, firewall reviews, and eventually, to do rule deployment. It was more to start standardizing our prior work changes. The initial first step is to understand and make sure that whatever change goes in is complying to our policies and standardized. The eventual goal is to get everything automated. We are using SecureTrack at the moment, but we do have licenses for SecureChange as well. View full review »

Ben Stern
Service Engineer at G2 Deployment Advisors
We are an integrator, and we implement this solution for our clients. Most of them use USP extensively. It is also commonly used for firewall rule clean up, automation, and change control. We have a whole range of use cases in different fields. We've got energy companies, banks, and healthcare is a big one. The vast majority of them use both SecureTrack and SecureChange and almost all of their features, rule cleanups, risk avoidance, and change automation. I, myself, typically lean a little bit heavier to the integration and coding side, and interacting with the APIs. But I also do plenty of installations and initial configurations and also some first-level support and maintenance. View full review »
Michael Utech
Network Security Engineer at Customer Worldpay
Primarily, it is being used as a type of security auditing control on our firewalls. We are in the middle of a new project acquiring dedicated new hardware while building out SecureTrack and SecureChange. After this initial project, and building out all that infrastructure is done, then there will be a project to kick off some of the automation and orchestration type stuff to try and improve some of those processes for the IT group. The goal is to use it to revalidate, clean up, and optimize firewall policies, but we are not there yet. The company has had the product in place for a while. I am giving up the web proxy stuff, so I can become the SME on the Tufin. View full review »

Currently, we're an electric utility. We use it for NERC CIP for validating rules into ESPs, which makes it easier for us to pull out the rules and justifications for auditors. We are using either Tufin 18-2 or 18-3 and testing 19-2. As a company, we don't have anything in the cloud. View full review »

For us, it's more about managing the policies and having an overview of all the policies that are available, that we currently implement, and bringing them to a central console so that we can have an overview of what's going on. We deploy Tufin for one of our customers, it's not for ourselves. View full review »

Security Engineering at a financial services firm with 10,001+ employees
We use Tufin to do the review of rules, best practices, changes, and usage. So, it's an outside entity looking in to see what's happening on the rules sides. Then, we can do recertification for our rules, so they can be used again. Tufin puts it together really well, saying what's needed or not, then cleaning things up. We've been a customer for a very long time with them, and we're pretty pleased. View full review »

We also use this solution to look for violation policies, as well as unused rules. We use this solution in AWS and in our on-prem firewall. View full review »
