TrueFort Named a Representative Vendor in 2023 Gartner® Market Guide for Microsegmentation

TrueFort Platform maps runtime application behavior and enforces microsegmentation policies

WEEHAWKEN, N.J.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–TrueFort, the lateral movement protection company, today announced it has been named a Representative Vendor by Gartner in the Market Guide for Microsegmentationby analysts Adam Hils, Rajpreet Kaur, and Jeremy D’Hoinne. As stated in the research: “Microsegmentation tools support the implementation of finer-grained zoning across public, private and hybrid cloud infrastructures.”

According to the Gartner, Inc. report: “Security and risk management (SRM) leaders responsible for infrastructure security should implement fine-grained zoning and microsegmentation technologies as a practical way of enforcing zero trust principles for public, private and hybrid cloud infrastructures… and enable policies at the workload level to stop lateral movement and limit the blast radius of malware by leveraging discovery features and integration with cloud infrastructure automation to ease initial work and operational maintenance.”

“The TrueFort platform continuously analyzes applications for workload behavior, communication between applications and related resources, and the use of service accounts to automatically enforce microsegmentation policies and contain attacks before they escalate,” said Sameer Malhotra, CEO of TrueFort. “We believe our ability to ingest telemetry from existing software tools and support on-premises and cloud implementations provides the flexibility customers need for hybrid architectures and the widest range of use cases.”

The Gartner report also states: “Today, the microsegmentation tools offer multiple different deployment models to achieve fine-grained policy implementation. While many vendors in the market specialize in a specific deployment model, a few vendors offer a combination of these deployment models to support hybrid architectures. SRM leaders must understand the different deployment models of these tools in order to choose the relevant model/models for their use case and environment.”

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. TrueFort has unique full-stack cloud workload capabilities based on patented behavioral analytics and policy automation, specifically designed to address the complexities and dynamic nature of modern workloads. TrueFort’s patented technologies ensure workloads behave only as application owners want them to.
