TrueFort CEO Invited to Present on Securing Enterprise Applications at RSA Conference 2020

Sponsored by Businesswire

TrueFort™, the application detection & response company, today announced that CEO Sameer Malhotra will present a session at the RSA Conference 2020 Early Stage Expo on using application behavior analytics to defend businesses against advanced attacks and open vulnerabilities. The company will also demonstrate at Booth 50 the TrueFort Fortress™ XDR application detection and response platform, which reverses the traditional infrastructure approach to security by protecting from the application layer.

WHO: Sameer Malhotra, CEO and Founder of TrueFort, has spent more than 20 years in senior IT executive roles in the world’s top financial institutions, including JPMorgan Chase, Bank of America Merrill Lynch and Goldman Sachs. Sameer is also widely recognized for his extensive and in-depth knowledge of infrastructure and security, owns multiple patents in the field and obtained his Master of Science degree in Technology Management from the Stevens Institute of Technology.

WHAT: Traditional approaches to securing applications and cloud workloads focus on infrastructure and application security scans to secure hosts and code, using static policies based on snapshot configurations and signatures. This enables attacks that emulate trusted entities and operational events to evade detection and compromise vulnerabilities. In this hands-on session, Sameer will present a new approach called application detection and response that reverses the InfraSec and AppSec models by protecting from the application layer. He will demonstrate how unifying telemetry from operations, AppSec and InfraSec in a single console provides previously unattainable visibility into threats and risks, like unmanaged service IDs. Finally, he will explain how this application-based lens enables advanced, behavioral analytics to profile and automatically generate policy to continuously shrink an organization’s attack surface.

WHEN: Wednesday, Feb. 26 from 11:30 – 11:50am.

WHERE: RSA Conference 2020, Early Stage Expo, Moscone Center West, San Francisco. For more information visit:
