Consolidation for security teams refers to the process of integrating and centralizing security tools and processes in order to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of an organization’s overall security posture. According to Gartner, 57% of organizations work with fewer than ten vendors for their security needs, and 75% are seeking security vendor consolidation.
In cybersecurity, consolidation involves combining various security tools and processes such as firewalls, intrusion detection and prevention systems, antivirus software, security information and event management (SIEM) systems, and vulnerability scanners. The goal is to manage these tools and processes more effectively by integrating them into a unified security framework.
Consolidation is becoming essential for security teams as it allows them to manage and monitor their security infrastructure more effectively and efficiently. By consolidating their security tools and processes, security teams can reduce complexity, streamline their workflows, and improve their ability to detect and respond to security threats. We offer a platform for application-centric security and understand the benefits of consolidation for security teams. Our customers want the ability to fence applications via microsegmentation. They want service account protection, file integrity monitoring, and workload hardening, with minimal friction and maximum clarity.
Our platform helps enterprises monitor their applications in real-time, detect and prevent security threats, and provide visibility into their security posture. Our customers have the unique benefit of using existing agents, such as CrowdStrike or SentinelOne, for cybersecurity monitoring and visibility. Looking at recent feedback from our customers, this is helpful in several ways.
- Reduced Complexity: By leveraging existing agents, TrueFort customers can reduce the complexity of their security architecture – keeping things simple. Instead of deploying multiple agents from different vendors, TrueFort can use your existing agent to gather telemetry, visibility, and understanding of your security posture. This will reduce the complexity of the security infrastructure, simplify workflows, and eliminate and automate routine security tasks. This can improve efficiency and reduce the time it takes to detect and respond to security incidents.
- Enhanced Coverage: CrowdStrike and SentinelOne are both leading endpoint protection solutions that provide advanced threat detection and response capabilities. By integrating these agents with TrueFort’s platform, customers can enhance their security coverage and gain better visibility into their security posture.
- Faster Time-to-Value: Leveraging existing agents can also help our customers achieve faster time-to-value. Since these agents are already deployed, customers can quickly integrate them with TrueFort’s platform and start monitoring their applications in real time.
- Improved Threat Detection: Customers can improve their threat detection capabilities by integrating existing agents with TrueFort’s platform. Our platform can correlate data from different sources to detect and prevent sophisticated attacks that might otherwise go unnoticed.
- Cost Savings: Finally, leveraging existing agents can also help customers save on costs. Instead of investing in new agents, customers can use their existing investments to enhance their security posture and achieve better visibility into their security posture.
Consolidation is important for security teams because it can improve visibility, reduce clutter and concentrate efforts, improve efficiency, and result in cost savings. We are able to offer microsegmentation, service account protection, file integrity monitoring, and workload hardening – all while using existing agents. Security teams are busy enough, and resources – both staff and investment capital – are already stretched, so a reduced window with less alert clutter and fewer overheads is priceless. Through consolidating their security infrastructure, security teams can better protect their organization from security threats.
