Armis, TrueFort Announce Strategic Partnership

Armis, an asset visibility and security company, announced a strategic partnership and integration with TrueFort, the lateral movement protection company. The 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 of 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 percent of all attacks. This is a result of OT and IT environments 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 of TrueFort. “This is especially true in critical industries, such as manufacturing, utilities, health care,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.
