Tufin Scalability

Arturo Morante
Network Architect at a transportation company with 10,001+ employees
We don't have that big of an environment. We added some 20 pairs of firewalls and another 20 or 30 routers, and one F5. I don't think we have scaled Tufin sufficiently to put it under some stress. Our DC is pretty small, we don't have many devices. View full review »
Robert Letson
Director at Visa Inc.
We have definitely added gear, so it is scalable. We've added two more distribution servers and probably seven or eight more collectors. It is definitely scalable. View full review »

The scalability is amazing. We have it in two data centers. We have full redundancy with it. I have no qualms about its scalability, whatsoever. View full review »

The scalability seems good. It is overwhelming to think about how to define a USP potentially for the amount of networks that we have for shop floor firewalls. However, in terms of scalability, it seems like once the information is in there, it can operate well and help speed up change requests. View full review »

Network Security Operations at a insurance company with 10,001+ employees
I am not sure about the scalability. The product that we have deployed for our main process gets bogged down in terms of its response. Maybe, we need to deploy a slightly smaller box. Eventually, we need to discuss this with Tufin is to see if we can move over to some sort of VM environment where we can add more processing power to it. We have a global implementation.

The scalability is fine but when it comes to web services, in my experience, Tomcat has always gone down; after a certain amount of load it breaks down and we have to get things restored again. The scalability is perfectly fine but, performance-wise, they have to work on the platform or the base of Tufin to make it more robust. In a bad situation, if a lot of guys are logging in, it breaks down. View full review »

This solution is extremely scalable. I've seen customers with multiple hundreds of firewalls and there are no issues. The specs that they post on their Knowledge Base are pretty accurate as far as performance goes. View full review »

In terms of scalability, the only issue is the licensing part. You have to have the correct license to go to a larger installment. View full review »
NetworkEccd3
Network Engineer Lead at a energy/utilities company with 10,001+ employees
It seems to scale very well. We have had the same servers in for four years now, and everything's keeping up. We haven't had any issues yet, and we are probably monitoring around 400 firewalls today. View full review »

NetworkE78f6
Network Engineer at a healthcare company with 10,001+ employees
The scalability is pretty good. Right now, our solution is a little bit more contained, given our business requirements. But we don't see scalability as a roadblock if we do have to expand it out or scale out. No complaints there. View full review »
John_Ford
Managing Director at Midpoint Technology
This solution is extremely scalable, globally across thousands of firewalls, switches, and proxy devices. We look for scalability in a product. We have a small portfolio of solution providers, Tufin being one of them, and we choose them based on their scalability. There are other factors, but scalability is critical for us.

Network Engineer at a energy/utilities company with 10,001+ employees
Scalability is to be determined at this point for us. Right now, we have five or six isolated instances, and we're going to collapse those down to a single front-end. Then, we'll scale up to how many devices that we're monitoring. At this point, we haven't had any issues with scalability, but we haven't really pushed the appliances too hard yet. Making sure that you are designing or coming up with a solution and architecture which is scalable and as holistic as possible. We had some discussions yesterday with some other customers, and having the complete visibility of your entire environment rather than just a subset like we do today at our company will make or break your functionality of the product. Being as all inclusive as possible is probably critical, especially if you're looking at things like SecureChange. View full review »
Nathan Hulsey
Firewall Architect at a financial services firm with 10,001+ employees
As for scalability, we're finding that out right now. We're building out two new Remote Collectors for our global deployment of an additional 150 to 180 firewalls, plus additional Layer 3 appliances. We're working through that right now. Hopefully, it will be a smooth transition but I can't say for sure because we haven't actually implemented it yet. View full review »
Tch32Dr8392
Technical Director at a tech services company with 201-500 employees
Scalability is something the customer will be exploring in the next phase. I think that the major limitation is its ability to integrate into more products. With the common products, the older products, it integrates very well. But with the newer products, like I said, F5 for example, they do have some issues. I'm not too sure about other firewall products and other DDoS products that could be in the network. For now, the customer is trying to integrate the product into the rest of the group. That's currently being studied by some of their overseas counterparts to see if it's suitable. The plan is that the customer intends to proliferate this across the entire network, but that step will take place over five years' time. View full review »

We've added more servers to process the load, and it's definitely helped speed up the system. At this time, we manage almost five hundred firewalls. View full review »
ManagerOc5c3
Manager of Security Engineering at Global Payments inc
With the scalability, you have to use different components: the reporting server and distribution server. When we implemented it earlier, we didn't design it properly, which I feel is our issue. Once we design it properly, the way that we are implementing it now, I feel the scalability should be there. View full review »
Tom Loeber
Services Engineer at AccessIT Group
The scalability is good, because you can have a central server, distributed server, and remote collectors. You can have remote land sites or branch offices. You can have the collectors collect the data for you. You don't have to rely on just one server. View full review »
Shaun Slatton
Automation Engineer at Cox Communications
Scalability is hard for me to say based on what we have deployed so far. We do have issues, but it's hard for me to say whether they are because of the hardware, or are an issue of scale. View full review »

Jeffrey Belanger
Security Consultant at a insurance company with 10,001+ employees
This solution is not entirely scalable, although we have a very small footprint, so we don't really need it to be. For our use case, it's okay. I think that the distributed architecture, which we don't use, would allow it to be a lot more scalable, but I haven't had any experience with that. View full review »

Regional OSH at Pos Malaysia Berhad
We had no issues with scalability. We are a big company and our network is complex. We have a lot of servers and we have about 700-plus branches connecting to HQ. HQ is our main site to go with the ISP. But we only implemented Tufin at our HQ and two of our main branches. There were only four users on my team. View full review »

Security7b20
Security Engineer at a insurance company with 201-500 employees
With scalability, we are going to run into some issues. We have been talking about converting over to actual hardware as opposed to virtual. Therefore, I don't think we are scalable at this time, especially with the updates coming. I'm told that they're going to need a lot more horsepower to push them. As far as scalability, it is great for adding network objects and so on. View full review »
