What is Trusted Application Networking?

In a Zero Trust environment where the network is assumed to be insecure, Trusted Application Networking technology verifies the identity of application workloads before allowing them to communicate. This unique technology securely verifies identities of applications, users, containers and hosts, and automatically builds policies to enforce least-privilege access. Workload protection is stronger and simpler to manage.

Why Network Addresses Cannot Be Trusted

Traditional address-centric firewalls allow malicious communications to piggyback on allowed network policies because they lack visibility and control beyond primitive network attributes.

While next-generation firewall are aware of application protocols, they are blind to the true identity of the communicating software.

Micro-segmentation offers more visibility and control of network traffic within the perimeter. However, the large number of address-centric policies makes micro-segmentation overly complex, without any gain in security.

Need For Zero Trust Security

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.

Trusted Application Networking

Trusted Application Networking

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. 

Pre-connect Validation

Stops transport-layer exploits by mutually validating workloads before they connect

Policy Compression

Broadest coverage with the fewest workload-centric policies for Zero Trust enforcement

Zero Impact

Deploys in minutes, without changes to applications or network infrastructure
