Change management of traditional network security controls is a slow and cumbersome process, often involving manual ticketing for mundane tasks such as the addition of a port on a firewall rule. Address-based controls hinder application agility and add complexity in private, enterprise-managed network segments, and this drag is compounded in public cloud environments where the network is highly dynamic.
With Edgewise, security policy is based on software identity rather than address-based attributes, so organizations can be certain protection is always applied directly to critical assets rather than just the network they’re traversing. As a zero trust platform, only authorized and authenticated applications can communicate in the expected environment, with identified dependencies. Edgewise allows organizations to deploy policy once and segment topology once; no more late night firewall changes, change-control boards, or untested rollback plans.
