How TrueFort Compares to Akamai Guardicore

TrueFort enforces behavior to avoid false positives

Akamai Guardicore provides snapshots of visibility into network traffic without any context into normal operations within each application. Unless users have a deep knowledge of all across all environments, segmentation policies often cause false positives. With the TrueFort Platform, users can leverage the CrowdStrike or SentinelOne agents they already have, to map application-specific behavior and suggest enforcement policies—thereby minimizing false positives by consideration of all necessary operations. 

TrueFort vs. Akamai Guardicore

  • Rapid deployment, unmatched visibility
    With TrueFort, CrowdStrike and SentinelOne customers simply follow a few steps and the telemetry from tens of thousands of installed agents begins mapping to applications and their corresponding workloads. Within only a few hours, users can discover unexpected traffic that isn’t explained by network devices alone.
  • Continuous and real-time behavior analytics
    The TrueFort Platform applies machine learning to all aspects of observed workload behavior, to provide a trusted baseline of process, account, command, and network activityincluding full recording of historical actions. This clarity provides security teams and application owners with the shared understanding needed to confidently adopt the platform’s suggested granular segmentation policies.
  • Powerful, customizable enterprise reporting 
    With TrueFort, all analyzed behavior is available within a robust reporting platformwith templated reports for a variety of business audiences. From auditors to architects and threat hunters, dashboards are easy to customize to match each organization’s unique environment and use cases.
