TrueFort Unveils Industry-First Application Detection and Response Platform to Secure Applications and Cloud Workloads
TrueFort™ today announced TrueFort Fortress XDR™ – a new approach to data center and cloud workload protection that replaces the traditional code and infrastructure view of application security in enterprise runtime environments. Fortress XDR detects and protects against elusive threats by analyzing and profiling business application logic and unifying telemetry from AppSec, infrastructure security and operational data sources in a single console. This enables organizations to more completely visualize their applications with both static and dynamic information, and constantly identify and adapt to new risks using a whitelist approach with tunable, auto-generated policies.
The company also announced today it has appointed three proven female executives each with over 25 years of experience to round out its senior leadership team, see: http://bit.ly/2Dq0BFa.
“As long as security solutions continue to focus on infrastructure alone, they are going to miss all the crucial business context information that is only available through higher-level analysis,” said Alexei Balaganski, Lead Analyst for global research firm KuppingerCole in this new report. “For example, without understanding the logic, behavior and business risks of corporate applications, even the most detailed analysis of network flows between them will never help an analyst to properly assess the risks of a vulnerability and to prioritize mitigation actions accordingly. This seemingly obvious idea is the foundation of the TrueFort application analytics and protection platform.”
Unlike existing approaches to cloud workload protection which focus on securing application code (AppSec) or the infrastructure applications are hosted on, Fortress XDR continuously aggregates and analyzes telemetry from across the entire application ecosystem – whether in legacy environments or across the cloud – in real-time to detect security threats and vulnerabilities to business applications.
TrueFort Fortified™ Ecosystem
To enable organizations to achieve full, 360-degree visibility into the application context with immediate value while maximizing investments in already deployed security products, TrueFort also announced today the TrueFort Fortified™ open ecosystem. The new program opens access for customers, providers and third-party security vendors to the Fortress XDR REST-APIs for bi-directional integration. It also uniquely allows customers to use the TrueFort agent or opt to “bring-their-own-agent” for substantial time and cost savings at organizations that have successful investments in market-leading platforms like CrowdStrike Falcon®.
“As an inaugural vendor and Partner-of-the-Year in our CrowdStrike Store™, the integrated TrueFort solution aligns well with our unique platform approach and is already generating a lot of interest from large enterprises,” said Mike Carpenter, CrowdStrike President, Global Sales & Field Operations. “A number of our customers using and evaluating the solution have added comprehensive application-layer visibility, policy automation and monitoring to tens of thousands of Falcon-protected workloads within just days.”
Kubernetes Support and New Reporter Module
To extend visibility and security into containerized applications, Fortress XDR now supports Kubernetes and the Istio standard, and deploys as a daemon set within nodes rather than as a privileged container. This enables customers to secure applications running in practically any environment.
For threat hunting, incident response and investigations, the platform’s new Reporter module provides on-demand playback of both real-time and historical data that can span minutes, months or even years – down to the process, network, identity and time levels. These capabilities dramatically improve time-to-detection, response and compliance.
“Until now, application security has been a one-dimensional discipline,” said Sameer Malhotra, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of TrueFort. “With Fortress XDR, organizations have the end-to-end visibility into application behaviors, in context and in real-time, needed to detect anomalies and block malicious execution events.”
TrueFort Fortress™ XDR is offered as a subscription and available immediately from TrueFort and its business partners worldwide, including the CrowdStrike Store. TrueFort customers receive 24x7 support and have automatic access to the platform APIs, while interested vendors, resellers and providers may contact TrueFort to request access via the company website.
Applications are the lifeblood of business. TrueFort™ helps organizations align application security policy with operational reality via Fortress™ XDR, the industry’s first application detection and response platform. Fortress XDR reverses the traditional infrastructure approach to security by comprehensively tracking application behavior to unify cloud workload protection and AppSec in a single console. Using real-time telemetry, patented advanced behavioral analytics and policy automation, enterprises can now visualize, microsegment, protect, hunt and investigate from the application layer. Founded in 2015 by former Wall Street senior IT executives, TrueFort offers unparalleled application visibility, control and protection with the shortest time-to-value through the TrueFort Fortified™ ecosystem and our unique bring-your-own-agent approach.
