Tufin has released TOS R20-2, the second version of the Tufin Orchestration Suite of 2020.
Please be aware that TOS 20-2 requires TufinOS 3.x, CentOS 7, or RHEL 7. This has been pointed out before. More information about this process to be published here.
So a direct upgrade isn't possible. It's necessary to upgrade/reinstall the Operating System itself. This isn't the move to TOS 2.0, the new version Tufin is talking about a lot. TOS 2.0 is currently available for SecureTrack only. Upgrade tools point customers using SecureTrack only to this new version. If you upgrade, please consider the hardware requirements Tufin has published for the "old" TOS as well as for the "new" TOS.
TOS 20-2 is available as GA, delivering some improvements, e.g.
Change Automation and Orchestration
- SecureChange offers "ticket references". So tickets can be combined and/or referenced. This might be useful if e.g. a rule is decertified and in the next step a Rule Decommissioning should start. Here, a link can be placed, showing to the first ticket.
- When in a SecureChange Access Request "Risk Analysis" is done, only USPs in SecureTrack could be considered. Now, also results of an External Risk Analysis can be considered and shown to the corresponding user.
Security, Risk, and Compliance
- The integration of Transparent Firewalls (working on layer 2 in bridge mode) needed extra tools. Now, they can be added using the WebUI of SecureTrack.
- If a path is found in SecureTrack Interactive Map, the result can now be exported in a PDF file. This file includes all relevant information about devices involved, including corresponding rules. So here is more information as it is shown via a REST API call.
- Searches in SecureTrack Interactive Map allow more than eight results now.
