Swisscom it cuts time spent on Firewall Management by half with Tufin Securetrack

(PresseBox) ( London, )
Tufin Technologies, the leading provider of Security Lifecycle Management solutions today announced that Swisscom IT Services, one of Switzerland's leading IT service providers, has selected its flagship product, SecureTrack to streamline its firewall operations. Swisscom IT Services core business covers system integration and the outsourcing of IT services such as consulting, workplace services, SAP management and E-Solutions. By implementing Tufin's award-winning Security Lifecycle Management solution, Swisscom can more efficiently deliver its customers secure, reliable, uninterrupted access to their mission-critical applications while implementing the process controls needed for ongoing operations and to pass rigorous security audits.

"SecureTrack has provided us with such an unprecedented amount of visibility and control over firewall operations that I just can't imagine life without it," said Michel Müller, Senior Network Security Engineer, Swisscom. "We already had tight processes in place, but the automation SecureTrack introduced provided us with an overall snapshot of the state of our firewalls that enables us to operate in a much more agile, proactive, and strategic manner. We accomplish more in less time, with full confidence that we are operating in a secure, compliant fashion."

Swisscom operates more than 150 firewalls, each containing over a thousand rules. First and foremost, SecureTrack provides complete visibility into all rule bases throughout Swisscom's firewall operations. With SecureTrack's complete display of each rule and object, the design team is able to easily check whether a proposed rule already exists or whether some of its requirements are already covered by other rules. This eliminates the occurrence of rule 'shadowing' (rule overlap) and results in overall improvement of firewall performance. By implementing SecureTrack, the time required to plan and implement changes was reduced by half, and flawless configuration of new rules and rule changes was ensured.

"Swisscom IT Services has joined a group of world class service providers that rely on SecureTrack to help maintain a highly secure and available network without sacrificing business agility," said Ruvi Kitov, CEO, Tufin Technologies. "Our customers are always impressed with the immediate and dramatic efficiency gains SecureTrack provides, but what we find particularly fulfilling is watching them reap the longer term benefits - such as streamlined processes, increased agility, more strategic decision-making, and an improved security posture. As the push to outsource continues, SecureTrack will enable Swisscom's to scale firewall operations in a very manageable, controlled, and compliant fashion.
