We are using Tufin to manage our multi-vendor firewall environment. We are using the Secure Change workflow to request, asses, and implement Firewall requests. Secure Track is used from our Security and Audit department for regular policy reviews.

We use SecureTrack for troubleshooting, APG (Automatic Policy Generator), implementation of new requests, change monitoring, rule and object usage reports. This solution provides an unified display of rules across vendors. We use this solution e.g. for cleanup and processing of shadowed rules.

Right now, we are just using it for SecureTrack. Next year, we have plans to buy the license for SecureChange as well. I think we're using version 18, and we are in the process of upgrading it to 19-2

We are using it mostly for reporting, as well as NERC CIP compliance for rule documentation. The primary use case is for doing rule cleanup, knocking down overly permissive rules, and cleaning up old unused rules. Basically, we are using the reporting functionality out of SecureTrack.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
