Edgewise automatically analyzes and visualizes how distributed applications communicate throughout the network, including mapping pathways to critical assets such as databases and identifying dependencies. This analysis and visualization allow DevOps and SREs to quickly and decisively create and apply security policy through the clear understanding of application topology as intended by the developers. Any unexpected application connections can be reviewed easily by development and security teams in one centralized location. As such, Edgewise brings development, operations, and security teams together and enables the cultural shift towards DevSecOps.
Application services need to be delivered reliably in environments that are constantly changing, whether that’s due to new application releases or new infrastructure in the cloud. Application changes impact underlying network controls that rely on addresses, ports, and protocols which are unable to easily or quickly adapt. As such, in traditional environments, applications need to be translated to “speak” the language of the network, which is manual, time consuming, and can impact application uptime.
Edgewise policies, unlike traditional network security protocols, automatically adapt to application changes because they are based on workload identity and are independent of the network. This means that software releases can be easily moved through the CI/CD pipeline, from development to staging to production without requiring any changes to the network. Software simply works and communicates as intended by the developers. If any software vulnerabilities are discovered while the application is running in production, Edgewise enables operators to protect any risky or exposed About Edgewise Networks, Inc.
Edgewise is the industry’s first Zero Trust platform for hybrid cloud security. It stops attackers’ lateral movements and protects workloads by allowing only verified applications, users, containers and hosts to communicate. Using machine learning, Edgewise recommends adaptive policies that eliminate 98% of the attack surface and protect the rest. application communication pathway instantly without any changes or stoppages to the application or network. These policy changes can then be formalized with development, ensuring that the application always runs in its intended state.
Edgewise provides application visibility from development through production, in real time, across on-premise, private or public cloud, and container environments.
Edgewise policies automatically adapt to application services regardless of where they are deployed—on-premises or in the cloud. Edgewise policies accommodate administrative changes such as workload autoscaling and orchestration. Edgewise machine learning takes information from DevOps tooling to anticipate change before it happens. Edgewise supports nearly 400 Linux kernel versions, Windows 7 onwards, and any Windows Server operating systems. Container environments supported include Kubernetes, Docker, and AWS Elastic Container Service (ECS).
