Fish sauce is my answer to all things soy sauce. It makes a strong statement on your food and you only need a small dose instead of a drenching. Fermenting certainly changes things but that science is above my knowledge.

Lea & Perrins is the original Worcestershire sauce, and is widely available. It contains neither soy nor gluten. In fact, in a cursory look at the ingredients label, it doesn't have other funky ingredients, either. Real food, I'd say.
