How TrueFort Compares to Zero Networks

TrueFort informs the journey to enforcement

Zero Networks promises agentless microsegmentation, but fails to explain how little control users would have with this approach. For any visibility into network traffic, an agent must be installed, and Zero Networks only supports workloads running Windows Server. With TrueFort, customers protect any workload, ranging from bare-metal AIX servers to Linux virtual machines with EDR agents, and containerized applications. If your organization is hybrid in any way, you need a microsegmentation platform that supports variety. 

TrueFort vs. Zero Networks

  • Rapid deployment, unmatched visibility
    Using TrueFort, CrowdStrike and SentinelOne customers can easily initiate a process where telemetry data from tens of thousands of deployed agents is quickly aligned with specific applications and their workloads. In just a few hours, this allows users to identify unexpected traffic patterns not accounted for by traditional 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 activity – including 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 segmentation policies.
  • Powerful, customizable enterprise reporting 
    With TrueFort, all analyzed behavior is available within a robust reporting platform with templated reports created explicitly for common business audiences. From threat hunters and compliance auditors to architects and network engineers, dashboards are easy to customize to match each organization’s unique environment and specific needs.


Zero Networks


Zero Networks


Consolidated Visibility  

Centralize your application environment mapping with a mix of already-installed CrowdStrike and SentinelOne agents, TrueFort agents, and IaaS tooling 

Easy Start, Increasingly Complex 

Host firewall policies can be pushed to Windows via Group Policy, but any visibility or validation requires extensive deployments and integrations 

Behavior Analytics  

Continuous and Unified 

Access baselines from machine learning across network, identity, process, and enterprise application  


No behavioral analysis around workload activity or baselining of network traffic  

IT/OT Segmentation  


Align network telemetry and asset intelligence from Armis with application behavior mapping to expand segmentation policies  


Visibility is limited to Active Directory and devices managed by Group Policy 

Forensic Timeline 

Continuous and Contextual 

Dive deep into any historical activity from network connections down to the command line execution from one interactive investigation dashboard   


Zero visibility into a continuous chain of events tying network and server activities  

Incident Response 

Real-time and Interactive 

Respond immediately incident by blocking a network connection, killing a process, or disabling a user 


No interactive response capability—only Group Policy definition 

Service Account Protection 

Behavioral Policy Enforcement 

Review service account historical trends and easily tailor policy for each application’s behavioral profile 


No visibility in accounts or ability to set policy based on user  

File Integrity Monitoring (FIM) 


Alert security teams when any critical files are modified, including details of what changed and by whom  


No ability to view or alert on critical file changes 



Access 100+ customizable enterprise reports spanning business continuity, frameworks like CIS, threat hunting, divestitures, and more 


Very little reporting beyond pre-defined summary reports and dashboards  

TrueFort vs. Zero Networks

TrueFort transforms enterprise security with its swift setup and unparalleled visibility, utilizing existing CrowdStrike or SentinelOne agents to quickly map data across thousands of servers within days and implement security measures in just weeks. In contrast to Zero Networks, which struggles with intricate integrations and scaling issues, TrueFort delivers ongoing, real-time analysis of behavior, flexible reporting options, and strong file integrity checks. This ensures a smooth, scalable approach to detecting advanced threats, responding to incidents, defending against zero-day exploits, and maintaining compliance in enterprise settings.

Zero trust application security isn't easy

But TrueFort levels the playing field against cyber attackers
