Zero Trust Networking For The Cloud

Stop trusting addresses. Instead, verify software, users, and hosts.

Cloud environments are uniquely suited for zero trust networking. Nowhere do you need to validate security more than when your applications are in someone else's network. Traditional perimeter defenses that rely on address-based controls are unable to protect workloads because attackers can exploit approved firewall policies to move laterally in so-called “trust zones.” Edgewise applies the concepts of zero trust networking and verifies the secure identity of the software, user, and host to stop attack progression.

Why Edgewise

Trust and verify software
Trusted and verified communicating software.
One-click policy application

Policy compression
Simplified operations based on policy compression–for the broadest coverage with the fewest policies.
Adaptive protection policies
Adaptive protection policies for every cloud and data center.
Continuous risk assessment
Up-to-date policies with continuous risk assessment.
Agentless protection
Agentless protection for serverless workloads.
Reveals Risk

Assume your network is hostile and learn the environment

Unlike a perimeter-based model, a zero trust network adjusts your threat model to assume that your internal network is a hostile network (with attackers probing systems, looking for weaknesses, and trying to gain access). In this hostile network, every device, user, and network flow needs to be authenticated and authorized. To achieve this, Edgewise uses machine learning to model the environment, identify required communication paths, and verify the secure identity of communicating entities.

Builds Policies

Policies are workload centric and adapt to changes

Zero trust networking from Edgewise abandons IP-based policies and instead builds identity-based policies by verifying the secure identity of workloads, hosts, and users. To ensure a highly secure environment, Edgewise policies are calculated from as many sources of data as possible, including application flows. Edgewise applies machine learning to build the optimal protection policies for an environment, generating the smallest set of policies that offer the broadest protection. Edgewise dynamically scales with your workloads to support the largest environments with consistent security and performance.

Protects Workloads

Workload protection and continuous monitoring

In zero trust environments, protection is enforced as close to the workload as possible to eliminate any gaps that could be exploited between the workload and the network. The Edgewise agent ensures that only trusted applications communicate over approved network pathways. Edgewise continuously monitors the protected communications to ensure that policies always reflect the intended state of the environment.

Protects Workloads and Stops Attacks

Stop lateral movement of malicious software that bypasses firewalls. Lock down your cloud and allow only verified applications to communicate over approved pathways. Receive alerts for any anomalous communication.

Eliminates Network Attack Surface

As much as 95% of network pathways are not required for normal business use. Eliminate unneeded application communication paths and protect the rest by mutually validating connections before a single packet is sent.

Immediate Time To Value

Apply workload protection policies in minutes, not days or months. Quickly approve machine-learned and automatically-built policy recommendations.
