ONUG Fall 2017: Bringing Security That Never Stops to the City That Never Sleeps

Courtney Blaskower,

Another can't-miss ONUG Conference is upon us! 

"Old security models like firewalls, IPS, etc. simply don’t work in today’s cloud-based software-defined world. A new flexible security model is needed that wraps security policy around workloads independent upon how that workload is hosted, be it bare-metal, hypervisor, container, server less, or its placement, be it on or off prem. 
ONUG is excited about the work Illumio and other members of the Software-Defined Security Services Working Group are pioneering to move past the traditional network, chokepoint security solutions created in a static era of computing.”

— Nick Lippis, ONUG Co-founder and Chairman

We're excited to showcase Illumio's micro-segmentation technology, the Adaptive Security Platform (ASP), at the Open Networking User Group (ONUG) Fall 2017 Conference in the Big Apple on October 17-18. In addition to being an exhibitor, we'll be participating in the Proof of Concept presentations to demonstrate how well Illumio ASP aligns with the requirements and use cases documented in the whitepaper written by the user community in the Software-Defined Security Services (S-DSS) Working Group.

ILLUMIO PROOF OF CONCEPT DEMONSTRATION

Wednesday, October 18 
12:05pm ET

Presenter: Mukesh Gupta, Sr. Director of Product Management at Illumio and a member of the ONUG Software-Defined Security Services Working Group

About the session: The ONUG S-DSS framework requires the policy enforcement to be as close to the workloads as possible to enable policy enforcement for any type of workload (bare-metal, virtual machines, containers, etc.) running in a multi-hybrid cloud environment. The framework also requires intent-based policies that are portable and elastic so they can be defined once and enforced in different environments. In this demonstration, Mukesh will show how well Illumio ASP delivers on these requirements — featuring the ability of the central policy engine to automatically recalculate policy to adapt to changes, like the movement of a workload to the cloud or the addition of new workloads to scale an application.
