BURLINGTON, MASS.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Edgewise Networks today launched its new platform that radically simplifies the creation and management of zero trust environments with one-click microsegmentation. In seconds, companies can stop internal network attacks that have bypassed perimeter defenses. The benefits include a significantly reduced network attack surface, operational efficiency for policy creation and management, and rapid time-to-value, all of which sharply reduces cyber risk.
Traditional address-based microsegmentation approaches are ineffective in today’s dynamic, hybrid-cloud environments. Edgewise uses an identity-based approach fueled by machine learning to provide security teams with a simple, automated solution for zero trust that doesn’t require any changes to existing applications or the network.
“As we started migrating our workloads to the cloud, we quickly recognized that our traditional controls just couldn’t protect them,” said Steve Strout, global head of technical operations at Vonage. “Edgewise’s platform lets us establish zero trust security across our entire hybrid cloud environment. They’ve made it so amazingly simple that we were astonished at how quickly Edgewise was able to visualize and microsegment our workloads. There really is nothing out there like it.”
Extreme Automation And Simplicity
While other microsegmentation solutions rely heavily on professional services to build, implement, and manage policies, Edgewise offers a self-service platform that uses advanced analytics to automate the creation and management of zero trust controls.
“Edgewise’s zero trust segmentation maximizes security by transforming controls from how things communicate (i.e., IP addresses) to what is communicating (i.e., verified software),” writes Jack Poller, senior analyst at ESG, in its technical validation of Edgewise. “Machine learning analysis and one-click segmentation greatly simplify the security team’s work, reducing the time and effort needed to secure applications.”
“We can land rockets on a barge in the middle of the ocean and drive home without ever touching the steering wheel — there’s no reason it should take up to a year to microsegment a network,” said Peter Smith, co-founder and CEO at Edgewise Networks. “With Edgewise, a zero trust environment is just one click away, solving one of the most difficult problems that security teams face in a matter of seconds.”
Edgewise is available now, and the company is accepting applications from potential channel partners. For more information on the Edgewise channel program, please visit our partner page.
