TrueFort Recognized in 2019 CRN® Tech Innovator Awards

Company Honored for Its Innovative Approach to Protecting Entire Application Ecosystems Across Legacy, Cloud and Hybrid Environments

WEEHAWKEN, NJ – December 9, 2019 – TrueFort™, the application detection and response company, today announced it has been named “Finalist” in the web and application security category of the 2019 CRN Tech Innovator Awards by CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company. TrueFort Fortress XDR is recognized for its unique ability to detect and protect against security threats and vulnerabilities in real-time across entire application ecosystems, regardless of whether they run in legacy, cloud or hybrid environments.

To determine the 2019 Tech Innovators, CRN editors evaluated hundreds of products, across 34 technology categories using criteria, including technological advancements, uniqueness of features, and potential to help solution providers solve common IT challenges. TrueFort is featured in the December issue of CRN and online at

“Being recognized as part of the prestigious CRN Tech Innovator award within the first year of launching Fortress XDR is very affirming,” said Sameer Malhotra, Founder and CEO of TrueFort. “It reinforces that our ability to unify cloud workload protection and AppSec in a single console, and our ability to deploy over existing EPP/EDR agents for easier implementation and speed-to-value and protection, is well-aligned with what partners and customers are asking for.  We save customers and their providers a lot of cost and effort.”

“CRN’s Tech Innovator Awards honor technology vendors who work tirelessly to craft ground-breaking solutions for end users, matching the speed of the channel’s evolution,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “Congratulations for their success in driving IT innovation forward for solution providers and their customers.”

TrueFort Fortress XDR™ replaces the traditional code and infrastructure view of application security in enterprise runtime environments by analyzing and profiling business application logic based on telemetry from appsec, infrastructure security and operational data sources. This enables organizations to continuously detect and adapt to new risks using a whitelist approach with tunable, auto-generated policies. Meanwhile, the TrueFort Fortified™ ecosystem opens up the Fortress XDR REST-APIs to customers and partners for bi-directional integration that supports “bring-your-own-agent” deployments.
