Armis, the market-leading asset intelligence and security company, today announced a strategic partnership and affiliation with TrueFort, the company that provides protection against lateral movement attacks. This collaboration empowers customers by facilitating the discovery, understanding and enforcement of security strategies for Information Technology (IT), Internet of Things (IoT) and OT (Operational Technology) environments.
“ Clients have always shared with us an understanding of how critical context is to them in understanding how applications connect to specific devices, who owns those applications and how critical they are to the business process,” said Brian Gumbel, President, Armis. ” This partnership with TrueFort now enables us to take better security and segmentation measures to increase operational resilience, and we are extremely pleased to be able to bring our combined expertise to customers.”
Studies have shown that lateral movements are used in 60% of all attacks. This is an investigation of OT and IT environments that are typically aggregated into a flat network. If security teams do not have full visibility, malicious actors can target both environments, moving between the two unnoticed.
” Enterprises today face a major challenge in identifying, documenting, mapping and separating applications in a secure and controlled manner, and with great precision and integrity,” said Sameer Malhotra, CEO and co-founder of TrueFort. “ This is especially true in critical industries such as manufacturing, utilities, healthcare and financial services. Together, Armis and TrueFort can fully explore and map IT and OT environments to develop intelligent strategies that prevent unauthorized lateral movement.”
