Benefits for the Fortress File Integrity Assurance (FIA)

Find threats that traditional scans miss.

Traditional scans search for known malware and eliminate it, but don’t address new malware or vulnerabilities that exhibit atypical characteristics. FIA operates by identifying file changes, and can identify unusual activity in real time, either as it becomes active or when it is introduced.

Assess threats more holistically.

Coverage extends to software supply chains to produce a software bill of materials (SBOM) to identify and catalog components for risk analysis.

Easily operationalize.

Fortress makes it easy to operationalize Software Assurance. We offer programmatic integration and allow you to do your job more efficiently by integrating into your patch delivery process.

Software Assurance isn’t just about risk identification; we provide tools to enable response and remediation.


Validate authenticity and integrity of all patches and updates for a given product.

Authenticity checks include analyzing the supplier for known breaches, appropriate encryption delivery, updated security certificates, and DNS checks. Integrity checks include reviewing code signage, malware analysis, and in some cases, sandbox, and firmware analysis.

Automate compliance and evidence sharing.

NERC CIP 10-3 requires checking the authenticity and integrity of every patch before it is installed into the Bulk Electric System. Fortress helps validate these associated controls.
