  • Putting the monster in a box: zero trust microsegmentation for victory
    Putting the monster in a box: zero trust microsegmentation for victory
    Dr. Chase Cunningham, Forrester & Peter Smith, Founder and CEO, Edgewise Networks Recorded: Sep 19 2018 51 mins
    Legacy security strategies and technologies simply haven't lived up to the hype. If they did, 2017 wouldn't have been the year of a billion records stolen. The security industry needs strategy now more than ever; throwing technology at the problem simply isn't going to stop the threats. Microsegmentation has come to light recently as a "new" area of innovation for cybersecurity, and it can be incredibly effective if it is done right. However, despite industry-accepted nomenclature, "microsegmentation" doesn't just mean perimeterizing your network with a bunch of firewalls and letting traffic inside that new perimeter communicate freely. This premise that "inside is 'good' and outside is 'bad'" is significantly outdated; any new strategy or technology must incorporate zero trust networking principles. Zero trust requires organizations to change the way they think about what's allowed to communicate on the network, regardless of where the perimeter (ephemeral as it may be) is placed.

    In this webinar we will explore different aspects of zero trust-based microsegmentation, explain how it should play into your overall cybersecurity strategy, and discuss how using these innovations can help your team "put the monster in a box" and gain ground against the adversary.
  • The Four Keys to Unlocking Application Identity for Security
    The Four Keys to Unlocking Application Identity for Security
    John O'Neil, Pete Nahas, Adam Sell Recorded: Jun 26 2018 24 mins
    Join Edgewise Chief Data Scientist John O’Neil, Agent Developer Pete Nahas, and Director of Marketing Operations Adam Sell for a conversation on how to enable a zero trust project by establishing secure identities for applications in your cloud or data center.
  • Why Zero Trust Security is Essential for Your Cloud and Data Center
    Why Zero Trust Security is Essential for Your Cloud and Data Center
    Dave Shackleford, SANS Analyst, and Adam LeWinter, Solutions Architect at Edgewise Recorded: May 25 2018 59 mins
    Edgewise and the SANS Institute co-presented a webinar on the ways in which zero trust networking can better protect the cloud and data center:

    Attackers rarely land on their intended target; more often, they piggyback on approved network address-based controls to move laterally toward their final target. The growth of private and public cloud further reduces the trust and control defenders have over network. To stop attackers from compromising applications and data, defenders must enforce least-privilege access. But how?

    AmLaw 200 Firm Uses Zero Trust To Enhance Security and Visibility
    Matthew Finnigan, Goulston & Storrs Senior Infrastructure Manager Recorded: Apr 26 2018 25 mins
    Goulston & Storrs, an AmLaw 200 law firm based in Boston, has enhanced the security of their critical applications and of client data by adopting the zero trust model.

    Senior Infrastructure Manager Matt Finnigan will speak about how Goulston & Storrs has used Edgewise Networks to gain visibility into their application topology, bring protection closer to the workload, and simplify policy building with machine learning.
  • Are NGFWs Becoming Obsolete?
    Are NGFWs Becoming Obsolete?
    Harry Sverdlove, Founder and CTO of Edgewise Networks Recorded: Mar 14 2018 46 mins
    While the next-generation firewall (NGFW) represented a quantum leap forward in network security, industry analysts have begun to question if the NGFW is a legacy technology now.

    Edgewise Founder and CTO Harry Sverdlove will try to answer this question and to explore a new vision for a cloud-centric workload security strategy.
  • Building a Zero Trust Network
    Building a Zero Trust Network
    Evan Gilman and Doug Barth Recorded: Feb 14 2018 59 mins
    Even as the world continues to change, our network security models have struggled to keep pace. Cloud mobility is a paramount security project, but the perimeter security model is showing its age and having difficulty in the new cloud world order.

    We spend millions on complex perimeter and address-focused technologies, but ever-worsening breaches continue to make the headlines year after year. The zero trust model aims to resolve that conflict.

    Zero trust networks are built with security at the forefront, creating policies using software and user identities, rather than spoofable IP addresses. By shifting the identifiers from addresses to software and user signatures, zero trust networks can protect public cloud workloads and on-premises applications with the same ease and flexibility.

    Doug and Evan will discuss the origins of and philosophy behind the zero trust networking model, why it's needed in today's network security landscape and how it can simplify workload protection.
  • Machine Learning and Microsegmentation
    Machine Learning and Microsegmentation
    John O'Neil, Edgewise Chief Data Scientist Recorded: Jan 18 2018 37 mins
    “Make the trust zones smaller” is the rallying cry behind microsegmentation projects. Break up the network into smaller pieces and put firewalls in between those pieces to ensure attackers can’t get from one part of the network to the next. But making microsegmentation projects work relies on a great deal of knowledge of the network and attack pathways. And it’s an incredibly heavy lift–configuring and deploying a microsegmentation solution takes an immense amount of time and resources. Machine learning can significantly reduce the hurdles by learning the network’s intended state and defining the attack pathways that need to be secured, automating the microsegmentation process.

    Edgewise’s Chief Data Scientist John O’Neil will deep-dive into the role of machine learning in microsegmentation and demonstrate how a machine learning driven solution could reduce the time and energy needed to deploy microsegmentation from months to hours.
  • Never Trust, Always Verify
    Never Trust, Always Verify
    Harry Sverdlove, Founder and CTO of Edgewise Networks Recorded: Dec 6 2017 46 mins
    The perimeter model of network security is broken – attackers have little difficulty in spoofing IP addresses or piggybacking malicious software on top of policy-permitted network traffic to gain access to the network. And once inside the network, it's a simple task for attackers to move laterally until they find the pot of gold and exfiltrate.

    Harry Sverdlove, Founder and CTO of Edgewise, took a look at the four steps to implementing a zero trust methodology in your network:

    - Identify your assets
    - Map your workloads
    - Implement intent-based security policies
    - Continuously monitor and adapt to workload changes
