Tufin Secure Track integration enhances Azure Firewall policy management

Ganesh Chauhan, Technical Support Specialist, Microsoft Azure.

Organizations today face growing network challenges as hundreds of network assets are deployed in hybrid and multi-cloud environments. Daily tasks such as enabling access or troubleshooting network connectivity issues have become increasingly complex and dispersed across multiple teams within the organization. Furthermore, organizations are being asked to do more while keeping costs under control. Gaining full and clear visibility and control is required for Network Security and Cloud Security teams to manage their fragmented networks, enforce security policies, work more efficiently, and reduce their attack surface caused by misconfigurations.

Tufin announced integration with Azure Firewall to provide holistic security policy management within your Azure and hybrid environments to assist organizations in addressing these challenges and achieving agility and security.

Tufin simplifies and automates Azure Firewall policy management.

Tufin provides unified security and real-time visibility across hybrid and cloud environments. Tufin’s Azure Firewall integration improves visibility and security while managing Azure Firewall policies. Policy automated audit trail and network topology visualization are key features for simplifying and automating network security management across on-premises and cloud environments.

Audit trail automation

Keeping track of changes to the Firewall Policy is critical for a variety of use cases because it allows you to reduce the attack surface by becoming aware of misconfigurations and risky changes. Furthermore, you can easily identify each change and its deployment time, and use this information to deploy a new Azure Firewall policy version when necessary.

Tufin provides an automated audit trail for changes made to your Azure Firewall policy. Furthermore, you can compare different policy versions in an easy-to-use, side-by-side user interface to quickly pinpoint each specific change.

Tufin SecureTrack provides automatic policy change tracking, with side-by-side comparison for easy identification of misconfiguration and risky changes.

Network topology visualisation

In today’s fast-changing networks, having a clear picture of your network topology is required to control potential risks and troubleshoot misconfigurations. Manually maintaining such network mapping is a time-consuming task involving multiple teams. Even with such a map, it is difficult to determine whether or not a specific network connection is permitted and in which path.

Tufin allows you to use live and automated network topology maps generated by your Azure Firewall and other network assets. This map enables you to simulate a path analysis of a specific network connection based on your network topology and policy rules, for both East and West traffic as well as North and South traffic. Tufin visualises how traffic flows based on routing and networking configuration, as well as whether access is permitted or denied based on security configuration.

Troubleshooting East and West connectivity between spoke Azure Virtual Networks through Azure Firewall. Tufin visualizes how the traffic flows based on the routing and networking configuration, and whether the access is allowed or blocked based on the security configuration.

Troubleshooting North and South connectivity between spoke Azure Virtual Networks through Azure Firewall. Tufin visualizes how the traffic flows based on the routing and networking configuration, and whether the access is allowed or blocked based on the security configuration.
