In the latest Gartner Hype Cycle for Infrastructure Protection, 2016, published on July 6, 2016 and compiled by Greg Young with analysis by Adam Hills, Network Security Policy Management (NSPM) is given a Benefit Rating of "High". According to the report: "NSPM tools are not just for rule reduction, but are also for managing thousands of rules across many enforcement points. Some NSPM vendors have added capabilities for policy-within-the cloud, and for migrating security to the cloud. Users with cloud deployments or considering cloud deployments should consider NSPM."
Other notable Tufin highlights from the first half of the year include:
- The launch of two product releases providing greater security policy control across on-premises and cloud environments through
- automatic discovery, policy enforcement and provisioning for Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud environments;
- change automation with provisioning for on-premises Fortinet environments; and
