TRUEFORT SOLUTION

Achieve Microsegmentation Fast Through Behavior-based Workload Profiles

Protecting workloads has become much harder due to the diverse environments, complex architectures, and dynamic application and workload changes. This creates an overly trusted environment that existing infrastructure tools weren’t created to understand. TrueFort provides intelligent microsegmentation to manage business critical data assets.

Next-gen firewalls and IP-based segmentation fail to protect

  • Understanding attack surface – threats from the outside and compromised insiders cannot be stopped from moving laterally by existing network endpoint security solutions.
  • Discovering and mapping applications – identifying a trusted baseline of expected workload and account activity in operating environments is impossible from security alerts.
  • Excessive entitlements – excessive entitlements occur for users and machines and are very rarely adjusted or revoked when needed to reduce risk.
  • Ensuring optimal operations – microsegmentation is crucial to eliminating high risk activity across workloads is especially challenging to accomplish without sacrificing application performance.

Understanding all of the interactions across workloads is mandatory

Eliminate Excessive Trust Concerns

Unify the identification, management and enforcement of applications and workload behavior to create a continuously trusted environment.

Continuous Detection and Response

Adapts detection and response to control the lateral movement used by zero-day, supply chain, and ransomware attacks after their initial compromise.

Powerful Behavioral Understanding

Use machine learning to understand workload behavior within applications to create a trusted baseline and easily adapt to application changes and on the control of unrecognized behaviors.

Granular Application Visibility

Automate comprehensive mapping of complex application relationships and data flows, including the process, identity and network.

The path to micro segmentation

The negative impacts of successful attacks require a preventative approach via zero trust, with microsegmentation uniquely positioned to ensure that the impacts of an incident are limited. To foster broader adoption, solutions supporting microsegmentation must be easy to use and straightforward to deploy, generating accurate, automated policy recommendations.

FAQ

1. What is microsegmentation?

Microsegmentation is a security approach which helps administrators implement the principle of least privilege and Zero Trust for individual workloads. Instead of applying one policy to an entire network or data center, microsegmentation allows security to manage traffic between workloads or applications within a network. Security policies deny user requests by default unless they present the right credentials for the specific data they’re trying to access. 

Microsegmentation may be used to isolate workloads in development, testing, and production, manage connections to specific applications, limit application visibility by user, user group, or tier, and apply fine-grained controls to specific software services and processes. 

2. What are the benefits of microsegmentation?

Microsegmentation plays an important role in reducing an organization’s attack surface because it gives security teams control over what lateral movement to permit in any environment. With this control, experts can monitor lateral movement against predefined security policies or against a model of expected application behavior, which improves the speed of detection, response, and remediation. 

Microsegmentation makes it possible to implement granular control of network communications, credential usage, and approved behavior to help organizations minimize the impact of a cyber security incident, and solutions with automated application discovery will simplify security management even as networks grow increasingly complex. 

3. How do you implement microsegmentation?

Microsegmentation doesn’t require a new architecture for implementation. Security teams can deploy an agent-based solution which leverages software existing agents on the workload to isolate individual hosts and containers. Solutions can apply security policies based on physical and virtual devices, including load-balancers, switches, or software-defined networks. Some cloud service providers also offer microsegmentation capabilities. 

Organizations will typically deploy both agent-based and network device models to handle all environments, including public or private cloud and on-premises networks. Solutions will use the visibility microsegmentation provides and data analytics to develop a model of normal network behavior against which anomalous events stand out for fast detection and response.
