WEEHAWKEN, N.J.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–TrueFort, the lateral movement protection company, today announced it has been cited in the Forrester Best Practice Report Manage Insider Risk With Zero Trust among sample vendors providing microsegmentation, which helps prevent and detect insider incidents.
According to the report: “The Forrester Zero Trust Model for information security protects against both external and internal threats. In Zero Trust, all entities are untrusted by default, least privilege access is enforced, and comprehensive security monitoring is implemented. Zero Trust controls reduce insiders’ ability to access systems and data that aren’t part of their job and monitor activity inside networks.
The report mentions controlling movement and application access among Zero Trust best practices. It also states, “Security pros can use Zero Trust principles to reduce insider risk… Insiders or compromised accounts may move around networks, attempting to access sensitive file shares or applications. Limit the ability of user accounts (human and nonhuman) to move around networks by implementing microsegmentation.”
“Traditional network devices do not detect lateral movement because they cannot distinguish between normal and anomalous account behavior, which allows attackers to move about undetected,” said Sameer Malhotra, CEO of TrueFort. “TrueFort offers fine grained microsegmentation that protects business critical applications through a real-time understanding of workload behavior and automated policy enforcement that is based on service account, process and network connection.”
The TrueFort Platform provides deep visibility into and real-time protection for cloud, data center, and hybrid application environments. On day one, TrueFort customers benefit from application intelligence and workload behavior analytics to enforce Zero Trust microsegmentation that contains lateral movement and stops the spread of ransomware. The platform has the unique ability to automate microsegmentation through existing EDR agents that are already installed. TrueFort’s patented technologies ensure workloads behave only as application owners want them to.
