Rely less on vulnerability management and rest assured that the threat won’t spread across your network.
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.
“Network segmentation is a powerful but underutilized security measure, yet it is one of the cornerstones of a successful information security program. It directly addresses the dangerous reality of today’s threat landscape: you cannot prevent a cyber breach, but you can isolate it.”
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.
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.

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.

“Segmenting your network is just the first step to a strong cybersecurity strategy. The next step is continually monitoring and auditing the segmented traffic. VLANs and other segmentation solutions fall flat here as the traffic is rarely analyzed, and threat intelligence from this is used to restrict endpoints dynamically. This is where ENHALO Agentless Network Segmentation excels in isolating exploited endpoints.”
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
