should you buy or build?
Regardless of where they are on their cyber risk management journey, companies both
large and small buy Fortress to strengthen their cyber defenses with speed and certainty.
Fortress uses a “Technology, Analytics and Services” (TAS) approach that leverages automation, continuous monitoring, vulnerability scanning and human assets to proactively uncover and contextualize risks across your enterprise and third party ecosystem.
Fortress Platform is pre-configured to align with industry best practices and processes. Our platform is pre-populated with threat intelligence and vulnerability data from your supply chain.
The Fortress Platform is tools agnostic and can integrate, standardize, communicate and remediate across IoT and mobile devices, laptops, servers and anything with an IP address — it is compatible with XML, CSV, APIs and any environment where tooling exists to push or pull data.
Even at the scale of a large enterprise that may have thousands of vendors and third parties, we leverage automation to get the most complete picture of risk. Automated systems inherit data from control questionnaires and other major risk information sources to power your own company’s insights. Automation also drives ongoing vulnerability scans to continuously pull analyst reports.
The Fortress Platform conducts rigorous and dynamic risk modeling to assess the “criticality” of risk across a range of supply chain parameters: Does a third party have physical or back end access to systems? Do they operate offshore? Do they leverage a public or multi-tenant cloud? Is their work customer-facing? Do they perform custom development?
We don’t just limit ourselves to servers and nodes, we’re also looking at workflows and processes that govern how both data and people interact across the enterprise for better performance and compliance — aligning everything for secure operations, transparent reporting and smart, proactive business decisions.
Unlike every other tools-centric cyber security vendor, Fortress has deep, combined expertise in both cyber security and your specific industry to provide solutions that specifically tie into your business processes. You can’t take a security posture without knowing the business — and that’s what we pride ourselves on. Fortress has developed best practices for Top-10 companies in finance, energy, oil & gas, manufacturing and healthcare.
