Agentless Network Segmentation

In the era of rapid growth of new technology, the threat of cyber attacks is at an all-time high, leaving all organizations open to the risk of financial losses, intellectual property theft, and reputational damage.

Global Threat Actors are Growing Daily. You Need a Zero-trust Kill Switch.

Digital organized bad actors constantly use new attack vectors to spread malware and ransomware. They wreak havoc as they creep network segment by network segment.

Our Agentless Network Segmentation Service prevents lateral threat movement with centralized Zero Trust controls that secure enterprise networks down to the most granular segment.

Why do you need this?

It’s simple – because traditional segmentation protection is ineffective in the following ways:

  • Devices on a shared VLAN can communicate with each other.
  • Lateral movement occurs once one endpoint is breached.
  • Limited to no visibility of traffic flow between endpoints with indicators of compromise. 
  • Zero-Trust architectures are complex and expensive to implement, requiring agents and infrastructure changes.

Our service remedies these inefficiencies and allows you to rely less on vulnerability management. You can rest assured that if the “door to one office” is left open, the threat will not spread to another.

With an average of 20 years in the field, our team is ready to help.

ENHALO’s Agentless Network Segmentation

Our service provides optimal defense against cyber threat propagation with the following benefits:

  1. Agentless architecture protecting managed and unmanaged devices. 
  2. Live threat intelligence from the ENHALO operations center on events as they occur. 
  3. Lateral movement containment so that ransomware and malware are restricted to a single device. 
  4. Protection of corporate applications and “crown jewels”. 
  5. Visibility of traffic flowing between endpoints.

A Ransomware Epidemic

The state of ransomware attacks has reached epidemic levels, and the challenges organizations face are massive.

Once the perimeter is breached, ransomware rapidly propagates, doing massive cyber damage by encrypting files or stealing sensitive information such as employee or customer PII. A delayed response to an incident often increases the impact exponentially.

Due to the complexity of firewall configuration, Network Access Control (NAC) segments, or group policies, the Security Operations (SecOps) teams are taking strain to prepare and respond to these attacks. Severing an entire network is often the only way to defend, further impacting the organization.

ENHALO Agentless Network Segmentation (ANS) solves this challenge by segmenting individual devices from each other, providing defense readiness conditions, and instantly mitigating with the ransomware kill switch.

The Failure of Patching

Organizations operate under the illusion that patch and vulnerability management can adequately protect the environment. The reality is that 2021 saw more than double the zero-day attacks of any previous year.

Sixty-six zero-day attacks were discovered in 2021 (compared to 37 in 2020 and 28 in 2019). These statistics paint a bleak picture of a battle that will never be won.

The rapid rate at which vulnerabilities are discovered means IT teams are staggering from one zero-day to the next. And the bad actors only need one such zero-day to gain a foothold.

CASE STUDY

Agentless Network Segmentation with ENHALO

Client – UK-based Private Investment Firm focused on solar energy projects.

Challenge – The organization knew that potential investors were becoming increasingly demanding, and they needed to demonstrate robust cybersecurity measures to strengthen investor confidence. The changing cybersecurity threat landscape coupled with a high-risk attack surface aggravated this investor concern.

Solution – The ENHALO airgap agentless network segmentation solution prevented lateral threat movement, while our threat analytics allowed the zero-trust kill switch to terminate access if a violation was detected. The ringfence around every device and application stopped the potential of malware and ransomware propagation. Unauthorized access between unrelated departments was also eradicated. With this level of protection, investors felt reassured doing business with our client.

Frequently asked Agentless Network Segmentation questions

Will implementing network segmentation across an enterprise not take much time and effort?

The good news is that your enterprise may already have segmentation capabilities available within the network that are simply not configured or deployed. It’s important to remember that with any cybersecurity implementation for new or existing systems, you must determine what is feasible, what is reasonable, and what will not interfere with the system’s mission and business objectives.

Our flat network gives us fast and reliable connectivity. How will ANS influence this?

ANS will not influence the connectivity speed and reliability. But suppose your systems connect to each other without going through intermediary devices such as a firewall. In that case, it is relatively easy for a bad actor to gain access to the entire system through one endpoint. 

In a segmented network, malicious traffic won’t have immediate access to the entire ecosystem.

Will ANS stop all breaches?

No cybersecurity defense is 100% failproof, but attackers will only be able to access the initial section they breached because the agentless kill switch will isolate the point of entry, giving the IT team time to locate the breach and minimize the impact of the intrusion. Therefore, even though ANS does not prevent the initial threat, attackers can only breach your first perimeter of defense where they are contained within the network segment they access.

What contribution does ANS make to the overall compliance of the enterprise? 

Segmentation allows you to separate regulated data from your other systems, making it easier to manage compliance and apply network isolation policies with a targeted approach. Implementing agentless solutions reduces workload due to autonomous policy frameworks. You do not need to write or manage security policies when you use an autonomous policy framework.

What makes ENHALO’s service offering different from any other similar segmentation options?

Many organizations use a combination of technologies, such as Virtual Local Area Networks (VLANs), Virtual Routing and Forwarding (VRFs), Physical or Virtual Firewalls, and native cloud and container security products. Using these technologies creates significant operational overhead. Still, they always leave a group of endpoints able to communicate with each other.

ENHALO Agentless Network Segmentation reduces the burden of implementing and managing network segmentation/micro-segmentation with machine-learned policies that can be automatically applied and adapted even when network configurations change. It eliminates the need to manually create rules, tune them, and handle exceptions while still ensuring compliance, audit, and security requirements.
