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

Sr. Manager, Content Marketing & Creative Services

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

Illumination 2.0: Next-Level Visualization and Policy Creation

Sr. Director of Product Management

Mukesh is a seasoned product management leader with 18 years of experience in enterprise security. He drives the software strategy and roadmap for Illumio Adaptive Security Platform.

In 2014, Illumio pioneered real-time application dependency mapping and visibility for micro-segmentation with Illumination. When we launched the Illumio Adaptive Security Platform (ASP), we believed that organizations wouldn't be able to build segmentation policy for their brownfield applications without an application dependency map (Illumio CTO PJ Kirner expounds upon why you need a map for security in a recent blog post). From our first version through today, Illumination has provided a way for organizations to use traffic flow visibility to build micro-segmentation policy, test it, and then start moving to enforcement – application by application.
