Agentless. Automated. Accurate.

Agent-based approaches add complexity, costing time and money. Worse still, micro-segmentation that uses agents merely manages an IP table’s firewall rules on workloads and doesn’t provide true security.

The agentless ShieldX approach provides a frictionless means to discover, automate, and micro-segment all the way to layer 7. By sitting at the network layer, all workloads and applications are visible, and policies with native security control are generated in minutes—without the need to install a burdensome agent.

Secure data, workloads, and applications

ShieldX is revolutionizing cloud security by providing comprehensive, automated, and consistent network security that is in sync with the changes in multi-cloud environments.

ShieldX uses business logic—not ports and protocols—
to provide one view into your network

  • Infrastructure connector leverages cloud provider APIs to discover assets and normalize activity
  • Allows the creation of one consistent, but dynamic, policy
  • Continuously discovers and catalogs assets while leveraging intelligence to generate policies at the perimeter and within
  • Provides situational awareness about applications running anywhere (even the dark corners) in virtualized data centers
  • Apply tags based on initiating and terminating connections
  • See indications of lateral movement during an attack campaign
  • Layer 7 capabilities allow context about application components in use
  • Map the topology of networks and identify applications dependencies to gain end-to-end visibility of every resource
  • Advanced monitoring includes SIEM and analytics, aggregating logs, forwarding events, and enriching data and events with observed behavior

  • An adaptive intention engine efficiently models relationships to produce a visual application connectivity graph
  • Learn what needs to be allowed based on a clear picture of traffic dynamics
  • Security policies are suggested based on the application connectivity model
  • Automation allows policies to be implemented in hours—not weeks or months
  • Granularly group workloads into resource groups with the ability to tune policies for an individual group
  • Continuously looks for new workloads, networks, and load balancers and reacts at cloud speed to determine intent

  • Avoid performance degradation or reduced security by responding to demand in real time
  • Scale out required microservices
  • Deploy scale back when demand isn’t as high to reduce costs without interrupting traffic
  • Realize unparalleled ability to deploy security controls when and where they are needed, at any scale, without compromise

  • Only trusted users and applications can access specific systems and data
  • Zero Trust is extended across OSI layers
  • Data and applications are kept safe through east-west network traffic protection
  • Be prepared for audits and eliminate stressful surprises
  • Detect and prevent attacks by visualizing attacker behavior on a threat execution map
  • Learn how multi-cloud behaves and shows anomalies based on knowledge of normal activity
  • Anomalous activity is quarantined, preventing attacks from spreading, without stopping work
  • Take the headache out of managing complex multi-cloud environments to save time

Always evolving,
always-on protection

  • ShieldX automatically scans the entire network for applications and data
  • Agentless discovery doesn’t affect performance
  • Gives visibility into N-tier applications within the multi-cloud

  • Automatically generates security policies in minutes
  • Transforms intention into controls across 7 layers of networking
  • Cloud-native microservices auto scale to any environment

  • Monitors and protects against data loss
  • Tracks attacker movement and creates an actionable plan for security teams
  • Prevents breaches or significantly reduces impact
