Armis and TrueFort Announce Strategic Partnership
Customers can now leverage the combined integration for improved visibility, intelligence, and control of connected assets
SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Armis, the leading asset visibility and security company, today announced a strategic partnership and integration with TrueFort, the lateral movement protection company. This collaboration empowers customers by enriching the discovery, understanding, and enforcement of security policies for IT, Internet of Things (IoT), and operational technology (OT) environments.
“Customers have shared with us just how critical context is for them when it comes to understanding how applications are connected to specific assets, who owns these applications, and how important they are to the business,” said Brian Gumbel, President, Armis. “This partnership with TrueFort enables us to put in place better security and segmentation policies to increase operational resilience and we are pleased to bring our combined expertise to customers.”
Research has found that lateral movement is used in 60% of all attacks. This is a result of OT and IT environments typically being combined into one flat network. If security teams do not have full visibility here, malicious actors can target both environments and move undetected between the two.
“Enterprises today have a great challenge to identify, document, map, and separate applications in a secure and controlled way with high accuracy and integrity,” said Sameer Malhotra, CEO and Co-founder, TrueFort. “This is especially true in critical industries, such as manufacturing, utilities, healthcare, and financial services. Together, Armis and TrueFort can fully discover and map IT and OT environments to enforce intelligent policies that prevent unauthorized lateral movement.”
Together, TrueFort and Armis help customers to:
- Discover all connected assets on the network, including applications, devices, service accounts, and infrastructure within a day using existing agent and agentless technology.
- Understand workload behavior and map it to the applications to baseline normal operations, empowering users with full confidence in what to block, disable, and kill.
- Enforce by account and action or push enforcement to host firewalls with the TrueFort or existing EDR agent.
“It’s critical that we operate securely in order to focus on our core mission: to bring efficient and sustainable climate solutions to buildings, homes, and transportation,” said James Powell, CISO, Trane Technologies. “Armis and TrueFort individually have been tremendous partners to us, so as a customer of both, this collaboration and the extended capabilities and services we’ll benefit from are exciting.”
