New! from Ridge Security
RidgeShield Cloud Workload Protection, is your first line of defense, providing zero-trust Micro-segmentation technology to protect cloud workloads, regardless of whether they are deployed on-premises, in hybrid cloud, or multi-cloud environments. With RidgeShield, organizations can ensure the security posture of their network against sophisticated security threats.
As an innovative host based micro-segmentation platform, RidgeShield supports a wide range of operating systems and workloads, continuously monitoring traffic across workloads and enforcing unified security policies across any environment.
RidgeShield Key Business Benefits
Isolating identities into segments
At the core of any successful zero-trust strategic initiative is ensuring least privileged access is achieved on every device, endpoint, and identity, whether human or machine. Microsegmentation is core to zero trust because it’s designed to isolate identities into segments, regardless of their origin. By treating every identity’s endpoint as a separate micro-segment as Airgap’s Zero Trust Everywhere solution does, granular context-based policy enforcement for every attack surface and endpoint is achieved, killing any chance of lateral movement through the network. AirGaps’ Trust Anywhere architecture also includes an Autonomous Policy Network that scales microsegmentation policies network-wide immediately.

AirGap’s unique approach has captured why microsegmentation is included in the definitive standard for zero trust from the National Institute of Standards (NIST). Their Zero Trust Architecture Guidelines NIST SP, 800-207, underscore the critical role of microsegmentation in attaining zero trust compliance corporate-wide.
Microsegmentation techniques are also pivotal in stopping and containing intrusion attempts. Forrester’s Trusting Zero Trust study found that 75% of CISO- and director-level leaders consider microsegmentation a key technology foundation for achieving their zero-trust strategic initiatives and are seeing results from their investments. Ponemon Institute’s 2022 report, Managing Risks & Costs At The Edge, found that 54% of organizations have had an average of five attacks on their endpoints in the past year. The annual cost of these annual attacks is $1.8 million or $360,000 per attack. Microsegmentation is proving its value by stopping intrusions and breaches.
