Illumio Simplifies Zero Trust Segmentation with Flexible Licensing

Modern IT infrastructure — like modern business — is complex. Endpoint devices connect to corporate networks from around the world. Data centers host critical applications and sensitive data. And public cloud platforms offer scalability and agility.  

At the same time, business needs, technology advancements, and market trends are in constant flux. That’s why today’s security solutions must be resilient, flexible, and adaptable.

To meet these challenges, we’re announcing a new platform offering that lets customers license the Illumio Zero Trust Segmentation (ZTS) Platform based on a workload and freely reallocate those licenses as needed. This change marks a big step forward in our mission to make microsegmentation scalable and easy to use.  

Zero Trust Segmentation has always been inherently flexible as a technology. Now it’s just as flexible in terms of deployment. With the new licensing option, customers will be even better positioned to meet the security needs of today’s ever-changing cloud, endpoint, and data center environments.  

4 benefits of simplified Zero Trust Segmentation licensing

Here’s how the change will bolster your security posture, efficiency, and investment value.

1. Increase security ROI

With Illumio, you can manage segmentation across cloud, endpoint, and data center environments from a single platform. And now, you can tailor licensing to fit the exact needs of your organization’s devices, applications, cloud providers, and workloads.

2. Achieve flexible segmentation deployments

As your unique mix of cloud, endpoint, and data center workloads changes and evolves, security measures must be agile enough to accommodate these shifts while keeping you protected.

Illumio's simplified licensing means you can deploy Zero Trust Segmentation more easily across your entire network — and scale it as your organization grows. In other words, you get segmentation exactly when and where you need it. This flexibility helps your IT and security teams speed up and adapt as needs change.

3. Improve cyber resilience

No matter where applications or workloads reside in your network, you’ll benefit from Illumio’s new approach to licensing. You can focus more on reducing the attack surface and mitigating the risk of lateral movement — and less on keeping up with licenses. By dynamically adapting to changes in workloads and configurations, Illumio helps maintain compliance and mitigate risks efficiently.

4. Get easy procurement

With the change, licensing for the Illumio ZTS Platform is based on workload. That means your organization can quickly assess segmentation needs and purchase only what it will use now. As your organization scales and evolves, you can easily shift and add more licenses. This change simplifies the purchasing process and ensures quicker time to value for your ZTS deployment.  

New Illumio ZTS Platform licensing options mean your organization is even better positioned to meet the security needs of today’s ever-changing cloud, endpoint, and data center environments.

Why Zero Trust?

As the attack surface continues to expand, cyber resilience is more critical than ever. The best way to achieve cyber resilience is through Zero Trust, a globally validated strategy based on the mantra of “never trust, always verify.”  

Zero Trust Segmentation (ZTS) is a key pillar of Zero Trust; in fact, you can’t achieve Zero Trust without it. ZTS enables a consistent approach to microsegmentation across the hybrid attack surface. This approach helps organizations see and reduce risk across their cloud, endpoint, and data center environments.  

ZTS is inherently flexible and adaptable. Unlike traditional network security models that rely on perimeter defenses, ZTS provides granular controls directly to each workload no matter what underlying infrastructure it’s running on. That means ZTS can change in real time to address new threats.  

With Illumio, you can achieve all of this from one platform. Our flexible framework enforces security policies across hybrid, multi-cloud environments in a clear, consistent manner. The approach lets you prioritize security measures based on how critical and sensitive specific applications and workloads are. And you can allocate resources with ease as your needs change.
