To overcome limitations described above, the Zero Trust networking model abandons the traditional security model of allowing application communications based on “trusted” addresses. Instead, communications are approved based on the trustworthiness of communicating software, hosts and users—for better security that extends beyond the network.
Edgewise’s revolutionary approach—Trusted Application Networking—implements Zero Trust security by allowing only trusted applications to communicate over approved network paths to stop compromise and attack progression of network-borne threats. This new technology, powered by machine learning, works by looking beyond network addresses and instead validates the secure identity of applications, users, containers and hosts controlling the addresses. Edgewise then uses these identities and builds policies that enforce the intended state of the environment.
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.
