Tufin has new plan for managed security providers

Tufin, a network security policy solutions provider, now has a consumption-based program for managed security solution providers. Tufin aims to provide network visibility and enable organizations, and their solution providers to make network security policy changes in minutes, reduce the attack surface and ensure continuous compliance.

Baruch Thee, Director of Global MSSP Program tells IT Europa “Tufin realized the growing need for MSSPs to provide a service that will replace the manual and painstaking processes associated with firewall management.”

As examples of the efficiency improvements now sought by so many managed services companies, there are so many different elements to improve on, adds Baruch Thee. “Firewall cleanup, for instance can take weeks or more when doing it manually, we can provide the data to assist with the cleanup in minutes. Change process is another example where automation can save time and resources, changes that take 1 week can improve to 1 day (a 500% improvement).”

Tufin’s MSSP Program aims to provide partners with:

  • Consumption-based pay-per-use model: eliminates the barrier of upfront payments with monthly billing based on actual consumption, allowing MSSPs to invest in offering this service with little to no upfront cost, while aligning monthly consumption charges to services revenue intake
  • Native multi-tenancy: provides native multi-tenancy capabilities within the Tufin Orchestration Suite for MSSPs with required separation of tenants, data, analysis and reporting
  • White label risk and compliance reporting: enables MSSPs to sell Tufin’s firewall risk and compliance reports, with their logo and brand prominently displayed
  • Easy license administration: grants the ability to easily add, remove, or exchange licenses
  • Comprehensive MSSP dashboard: provides a granular view of customer usage and costs to ensure cost-efficiency
  • Premium level support: includes 24-hour support and free online training through the Tufin Academy online, designed specifically for MSSPs

The new program has already been adapted by several MSSPs: “Tufin’s MSSP Program has allowed us to do more with less,” said Zane West, Managed Security Services Portfolio Manager at Dimension Data. “The automated security policy orchestration solutions have decreased the time, employees and resources required by Dimension Data to track and implement changes on our clients’ environment, enabling us to provide more valuable services. The flexibility of the pay-per-use model means that we can grow our business more effectively, and as more and more SMEs and large enterprises turn to MSSPs to solve their cybersecurity challenges, we’ll be ready for them.”
