Until now, organizations lacked visibility into their cloud environments and had little to no understanding how secure existing cloud resources and applications were. A tradeoff was being made: either circumvent security controls and take on risk, or rely on manual security reviews and compliance audits and sacrifice business agility. As a result, organizations are seeking solutions that combine the benefits of security policy controls with the automated approach of DevOps.
“Lack of visibility into cloud environments is one of the most pressing security challenges that organizations face,” says Jon Oltsik, senior principal analyst at ESG. “Security and cloud operations teams require cloud-native solutions that provide visibility and restore control without reducing business agility. Security policy automation extended to cloud platforms is the answer to that call.”
In an effort to provide organizations with increased visibility into potential connectivity risks of their cloud-based applications—automatically and at scale–Tufin has developed Iris. Tufin Iris can integrate into DevOps pipelines to ensure continuous compliance and maintain business agility.
“Organizations must have a solution that meets the unique security needs of cloud applications, without sacrificing the agility benefits of the cloud,” notes Shay Dayan, CTO of Cloud Products at Tufin. “Tufin Iris provides the solution necessary to easily define security policies to protect cloud-native applications and resources, and the automation support DevOps needs to identify risks early in the development process. The result is two teams working together seamlessly while ensuring agility, security, and compliance.”
For customers with a complex, hybrid IT landscape, Tufin Iris will integrate with the award-winning Tufin Orchestration Suite. The combined solution will provide comprehensive security policy management across traditional and cloud-native environments, leading to an improved security posture.
Tufin Iris is now available through the early access program, which includes a free trial account and dedicated support. To sign up for the program, visit the website.
