WEEHAWKEN, NJ – Nov. 22, 2021– TrueFort, the zero trust application protection company, today announced the TrueFort Fortress platform has been named Best Application and Cloud Workload Protection product in the 2021 Annual ‘ASTORS’ Awards program from AST (American Security Today) Homeland Security and AST Magazine.

The Annual ‘ASTORS’ Awards Program from AST Magazine honors advanced technologies that deliver enhanced value, benefit, and intelligence to end-users in a variety of government, homeland security, and public safety vertical markets. The preeminent U.S. Homeland Security Awards Program, the ‘ASTORS’ Awards feature the most cutting-edge and forward-thinking security solutions coming onto the market.

“We are proud to be named Best Application and Cloud Workload Protection solution in the ASTORS because it demonstrates the value we provide customers in both critical infrastructure and commercial markets,” said Sameer Malhotra, CEO of TrueFort. “TrueFort’s behavior-based approach to knowing what to trust allows our Fortress platform to contain and respond to threats before they can result in a data breach. And, our ability to automatically create and enforce Zero Trust security policy controls on applications and workloads provides a level of protection that is not possible with infrastructure-based security products.” 

Traditional security products have focused on protecting underlying IT infrastructure from threats but the success of attackers in executing ransomware, supply chain and phishing attacks shows that there are still significant gaps in security coverage. TrueFort fills this void, offering Zero Trust protection for enterprise applications and workloads in the cloud that are the gateway to sensitive data and, increasingly, the target of attackers. The company’s Fortress platform leverages patented behavioral analysis and machine intelligence to help organizations better understand their applications’ trusted behaviors to fend off attacks in real-time.
