As the cyber threat landscape continues to evolve, organizations around the world are recognizing the need for modern cybersecurity solutions. In this pursuit, Illumio is expanding its operations into the Latin American region.
Illumio aims to strengthen cyber resilience in Latin America, address the region’s unique cybersecurity challenges, and stop the spread of ransomware or other potentially catastrophic breaches.
Strengthening cyber resilience in Latin America
Illumio's expansion into Latin America is fueled by the region's growing economic prominence and global interconnectivity which has resulted in increasing vulnerability to cyber threats.
Though Latin American networks are still small compared to other regions, the interconnected nature of Latin American economies – with each other and the world – means that even a single security event can negatively impact the entire region:
The average cost of a security breach in Latin America in 2022 is estimated at 2.5 million USD.
ZTS is based on the Zero Trust principle of “never trust, always verify” to contain and minimize the impact of breaches and ransomware. Unlike prevention and detection technologies, ZTS contains the spread of breaches across the hybrid attack surface and is a foundational and strategic pillar of any Zero Trust architecture.
See risk: Continually visualize how workloads and devices are communicating
Set policy: Create granular policies that only allow wanted and necessary communication
Stop the spread: Automatically isolate breaches by restricting lateral movement proactively or during an active attack
Illumio ZTS has also been proven to deliver several business benefits including reduced risk, decreased costs, and accelerated innovation.
According to Forrester, the Illumio ZTS Platform delivers:
111% return on investment over three years
$3.8 million in savings due to fewer outages and downtime
90% decrease in operational effort by InfoSec teams
66% reduction in the impact, or blast radius, of a breach
$3 million in tool consolidation and reduced firewall costs
Some of the world's leading organizations already rely on Illumio, including 6 of the 10 largest global banks. These companies are using Illumio to reduce risk, strengthen compliance, and support transformation.
