Cybercrime never rests, never vacations, never sleeps. The Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) estimates that cybercrime costs the global economy more than USD $1 trillion annually, and is only growing, not slowing. Protecting organizations from cybercrime is a continual struggle because attackers, who range from state actors, to organized crime, to terrorism, use sophisticated technologies, are increasingly collaborative, and relentlessly determined.

Staying at the cutting edge of cybersecurity is never enough because that edge demands continual sharpening. Falling even a little behind can prove catastrophic. To ensure businesses stay safe, security professionals must stay more than one, two, or ten steps ahead of nefarious perpetrators.

While pioneering digital technologies like cloud computing, internet of things (IoT) and virtualized networks equip businesses with unprecedented opportunity for innovation, their complexities make them exponentially more vulnerable to cybercrime. Managing sprawling digital landscapes poses tremendous challenges for security professionals who need maximum visibility into the state of their networks, while also preserving system functionality so business can continue.

“Enterprises are rapidly adopting cloud and IoT,” says Raj Motwane, senior vice president, Global Services and Operations at Tufin. “The result is more complex, fragmented networks and a huge attack surface.”

Founded in 2005, Tufin developed an approach to threat detection and mitigation centered on centralized policy-based governance, enabling companies to create a comprehensive view of their digital properties while allowing business to continue uninterrupted. The suite of Tufin solutions enables security professionals to visualize, analyze, create and implement security policies across the enterprise.

“We enable companies to set and administer their security policy across their entire network,” says Motwane. “Our tools analyze what can talk to what, and who can talk to whom, regardless of vendor, across the entire network. Our entire orchestration suite that does this for our customers.”

Using Tufin solutions, security experts can create and apply best practices proactively to reduce security risk, enabling them to reveal and mitigate not only current, but future threats. This forward-looking approach demands a robust R&D practice, the heart of business at Tufin. In an industry where flashy apps and mind-bending artificial intelligence often grab the lion’s share of technology headlines, cybersecurity is a less glamorous-but no less crucial-area of concern, the solution everyone needs, but few acknowledge.

We need the freedom to work in any cloud. The range of cloud-first features and functionality VMware is developing will enable us to work across a multi-cloud reality, today and into the future.

In cybersecurity, there is precious little room for negotiation. Solutions must work, period. And when the Fortune 500 comes knocking, Tufin needs to be ready. The company encourages its developers to create the solutions that define industry standards, at speed and scale. To sustain their robust R&D culture, Tufin gives developers unfettered access to the tools they need to stay sharp. Enabling development teams to excel-to overachieve-without friction to accelerate solution time-to-market-requires open access to the advanced infrastructure necessary to get the job done.

“Look at some of our large clients. They look to us not just as a point solution for them, but as a partner to help them understand the best way to secure their networks,” says Motwane. “They want to know which solutions are the best, which ones are proving effective across other industries, how they can best leverage the features and functions offered by certain vendors and put those in place to harden their corporate networks as effectively as possible.”

To empower developers to create the infrastructure resources they need, Tufin uses a SaaS model to provision and consume digital resources, centered on VMware Aria Automation and VMware Aria Operations solutions. Nearly 90 percent of the IT environment at Tufin is built with VMware solutions, so the Aria suite was the logical choice. “We’re embracing software-as-a-service (SaaS) wherever possible, and the opportunity to move to managed services with VMware Aria Automation and VMware Aria Operations fits the bill.”

The solution has made the R&D team more productive, hastening their already accelerated development cadence. “R&D depends on the portal to execute multiple, automated test environments,” says Motwane. “The VMware SaaS model keeps us current with the latest features. We don’t have to maintain anything-VMware does it all.”

The solution suite has simplified infrastructure management dramatically. “We needed to remove obstructions to productivity and increase the effectiveness of our developer teams,” says Liat Shmuel, vice president of IT Operations, Tufin. “Manually provisioning infrastructure was time consuming, and very frustrating for developers.”

And manual processes introduced human error, thwarting the company’s ability to deliver solutions on schedule. “Reducing provisioning from 40 minutes to fewer than five is a game-changer. The VMware Aria solutions have become an IT enabler for the R&D team. Developers are much happier, and we field few complaints from R&D,” says Motwane. “We create a menu of templates that reduce human error. We use VMware Aria Automation to guide best practices.”

Tufin sees tremendous opportunity among large enterprises, from the Forbes 2000 to the Fortune 1000. “It’s a strategic advantage for us to deliver a multi-cloud, enterprise-ready solution,” says Motwane. “Flexibility and the ability to work how and where clients wish is key.”

“For enterprise organizations, the cloud is not a strategic choice anymore, it’s an imperative,” says Motwane. “We need the freedom to work in any cloud. The range of cloud-first features and functionality VMware is developing will enable us to work across a multi-cloud reality, today and into the future.”
