Edgewise Networks has announced a new approach to perimeter-free, zero-trust access for distributed workloads. The company claims that its platform is the first zero trust platform that can quickly and automatically microsegment any environment—not only on premise, but in the cloud and in containers. The process prevents malicious lateral movement across the network by allowing only applications verified by their cryptographic identity to communicate.
“Many organizations have been talking about micro-segmentation for many years, but very few organizations have any idea how to get started in a practical, operational setting,” said Ed Amoroso, an analyst at TAG Cyber, a cyber security analysis company. “It’s focused on supporting practical deployment.”
