How Cathay Pacific Fast-Tracked Segmentation and Compliance Success with Illumio

"Attacker sophistication just keeps improving ‚ How do you make it difficult for them?"

With this question looming over General Manager of Infrastructure, Operations, and Security, Kerry Peirse, Cathay Pacific determined to implement a Zero Trust security strategy and redouble its focus on segmentation to prevent the lateral movement of attackers and malware.

Kerry and team sought to make life difficult for attackers with a micro-segmentation solution that makes life easier for the organization. This led Cathay to Illumio Core and Illumio Edge for end-to-end Zero Trust and micro-segmentation.

Time is of the essence in matters of  lateral movement protection and PCI compliance, and Illumio's simpler approach to micro-segmentation put Cathay on a fast track to success: ‚"Our overall implementation time was less than three months, which is very fast.
