A critical element of protecting your networks, whether they are in the public cloud or on premises, is gaining an understanding of what is present and communicating. Edgewise discovers then maps your application topology and provides complete visibility. We do this by fingerprinting all software and services based on identity attributes like the SHA256 hash, file path, and loaded modules. Every time workloads communicate, Edgewise sees what’s communicating and reveals deeper insight about application-to-application communication, connections between hosts, and other data pathways.
Edgewise’s real-time, always up-to-date data flow map allows you to clearly see how your software is communicating; what applications, hosts, and processes have access to and are talking to other applications, hosts, and processes; and who/what is attempting third-party access. This insight is an important part of ensuring your systems have the proper controls implemented, that the controls are functioning as intended, and that systems are free of vulnerabilities or exploit.
Edgewise is application-aware and not bound by network address constructs so you can be certain that active changes will always be recognized, regardless of changes to the network such as new or retired instances in a cloud or container. Your data map will automatically adapt to current state, giving you an advantage over attackers by preventing any unverified workloads from communicating.
Apply adaptive and simplified policies to allow only verified workloads to communicate over approved pathways. Never trust, always verify.
Identify data stores and map communication pathways to understand your security risk. Prioritize protection based on risk of compromise.
Enable DevOps and SREs to build and deploy software with more security and with fewer disruptions to the SDLC. Machine-learned policy creation and enforcement allows auto-scaling in even the most elastic cloud environment.
