Introducing the Tufin MSSP Program

Tufin in October announced an MSSP program that enables MSSPs to offer "Tufin as a Service" in a consumption-based model.

MSSPs can leverage Tufin as a Service to automate network security policy changes, the company stated. They also can use Tufin as a Service to white-label firewall risk and compliance reports.

Furthermore, Tufin as a Service offers monthly billing based on actual consumption. It allows MSSPs to invest in the service with little to no upfront cost and align their monthly consumption charges based on revenues.
