Elisity Cognitive Trust fits into the model of Network-overlay solutions that leverage network controls that are part of the infrastructure.
San Jose, CA – August 10, 2022 – Elisity, Inc., the pioneer of Cognitive Trust™, the new platform for identity and behavior-based enterprise cybersecurity, was named by Gartner as an example microsegmentation vendor in the 2022 Gartner® “Emerging Technologies: Adoption Growth Insights for Microsegmentation” report.
Gartner says: “There are four common models of microsegmentation: network-overlay, host-based, cloud-native, and API-based."
Elisity Cognitive Trust fits into the model of Network-overlay solutions that leverage network controls that are part of the infrastructure, such as virtual network overlays, software-defined network components (e.g., routers and switches), or programmable network fabric, and hypervisors.
"Elisity enables fast time to value by its software-only, zero downtime, and the ability to deploy in brownfield environments in a few hours rather than weeks and months of comparable solutions. Our solution architecture matches the zero trust architecture proposed by NIST, with the customer's switches acting as policy enforcement points, and its IDP, CMDB, and SIEM acting as policy information points. Least privilege access policies are centrally managed via SaaS and distributed in real-time across the infrastructure at the time of the access request", says James Winebrenner, CEO of Elisity. "We care about simplicity, interoperability, and time-to-value", he added.
