Why Edgewise

FLAT NETWORKS ALLOW ATTACKERS TO MOVE LATERALLY AND COMPROMISE VULNERABLE TARGETS

Flat networks allow attackers to move laterally and compromise vulnerable targets.

Different threats and causes, but common recommendation from experts: improve segmentation.

However, when traditional controls are used for segmentation, the operational complexity far outweighs any security benefit.

Time complexity cost vs. security benefit

Edgewise makes microsegmentation impossibly simple, accomplished with one click! Building segments and policies are automated by machine learning. Policies automatically update when applications are upgraded, new apps are added or if the environment auto scales. No changes to your network are required with Edgewise's software-based segmentation.

Impossibly simple with one click

Edgewise uses a zero trust model to deliver stronger protection for applications and data. Edgewise verifies the identity of software and devices before allowing any communication. Identity-based policies provide more coverage with fewer policies vs traditional address-based controls. Our patented machine learning technology automates the entire process of microsegmentation from initial deployment to ongoing operations.
