Edgewise Networks, a security startup that's taking on industry giants VMware and Cisco with its microsegmentation technology, has a simple plan to win market share. "As far as the microsegmentation space is concerned, it has been viewed as very complex," said CEO Peter Smith. "Really, the drive behind our pursuit of these patents is bringing extreme simplicity, extreme automation to the problem of microsegmentation and zero trust." Microsegmentation enables fine-grained security policies to be assigned to cloud and data center applications. The approach improves network security by integrating it directly into a virtualized workload without requiring a hardware-based firewall.
