TRUEFORT SOLUTION

Enterprise-grade Cloud Workload Protection Platform

Existing management and monitoring tools lack the ability to detect workload configuration risks or identify malicious activity with more accuracy than high-volume alerts. TrueFort’s cloud workload protection solution shields workloads from compromise by adapting to unusual activity and maintaining protection across both on-premises and cloud workloads. 

Point solutions fail to understand how applications operate

  • Shifting security threats – increased sophistication in security threats has made blocking known attack indicators ineffective
  • Unrestricted lateral movement – once initial access has occurred, attackers are often free to move across the network, unrestricted
  • Cloud workload protection lacks application context – security teams have no ability to know and validate workload behavior with application owners
  • Security is completely different in the cloud – applications and their unknown dependencies introduce unwanted risk in migrations to the cloud.

Protecting Workloads Requires
Understanding and Enforcing the Legitimate

Application Intelligent
Segmentation

Enforce workload segmentation to protect against lateral movement, ransomware, and data exfiltration attacks while informing the SOC for response.

Trusted
Workload Profiles

Continuously monitor for drift in workload behavior with a positive security model, alerting on or blocking activities outside of the expected norm.

Automated
Segmentation Profiles

Understand, manage, and control trust around workloads to proactively protect against unknown risks that threaten workloads.

Enact Least
Privilege Success

Learned behavior enables security teams to create least privileged access policies and minimize cloud workload risk.

FAQ

1. What is cloud workload protection?

Cloud workloads refer to applications, services, or computing capabilities running on cloud resources, including servers, virtual machines, and containers. Cloud Workload Protection is the process of securing workloads across data center and cloud environments through continuous monitoring. Distributed workloads have a larger attack surface, but security efforts cannot interfere with business operations. Cloud workload protection helps ensure workloads and cloud-based applications remain functional while mitigating risk 

2. What are the benefits of cloud workload protection?

  • Improved visibility: Cloud workload protection (CWP) offers better visibility into host configurations and workload events so security teams can implement preventive policies and detect and respond to incidents faster with fewer false positives.  
  • Behavioral monitoring: CWP is more effective when workload events are analyzed with machine learning against normal behavior to alert on or block anomalous activity. 
  • Broad-reaching protection: CWP provides protection for workloads, microservices, and container environments across all environments, including physical on-premises servers, virtual machines, and the entire cloud-native stack on any cloud. 
  • CI/CD support: CWP allows development to follow best practices for continuous integration/continuous delivery and maintain performance while ensuring workload security. 

3. Why do you need cloud workload protection?

Many cyber criminals target the cloud because it’s difficult to secure. With modern cloud services, application data may pass through multiple microservices, servers, and database clusters distributed across public and private clouds and on-premises machines. With this level of complexity, it’s most effective to protect data at the workload level. Cloud workload protection helps organizations protect workloads in cloud and hybrid environments while allowing application development and business operations to proceed efficiently.

VIDEOS

Detecting and resolving lateral movement issues has been a founding principle at TrueFort. We’ve changed how companies prevent attackers from spreading as organizations grow increasingly complex through acquisitions, divestitures and cloud migrations and enable them to secure critical data and fully protect their application environment.
