BlastWave's BlastShield™ solution will protect a mis-configured server, either on-prem or in a cloud provider, from unauthorized access by rendering it invisible to unauthorized users and blocking access at the network layer.

The use of the BlastShield™ Zero-Trust Network Access solution prevents these types of attacks from happening by using a converged software-defined perimeter (SDP) combined with network layer micro-segmentation overlaid with our patented "invisibility" to protect assets such as critical database servers, IoT devices and legacy systems, where security is weak.

In short, BlastShield™ makes your network invisible - even if a server is accidentally and unintentionally “misconfigured.” You Can't Hack What You Can't See.
