Flat networks have become so prevalent because they are typically simple to architect, cheap to construct and easy to operate and maintain. However, it turns out that malicious actors love flat networks, too. That's because once a single host on a flat network has been compromised, the integrity of the rest of the network starts to resemble a house of cards.

The first takes an introspective view into the organizations we're all ultimately tasked with protecting. The second takes an outward-facing view that acknowledges that enterprises are part of a broader business ecosystem, and with that comes upstream and downstream risk.

Janani heads up the technical product marketing team at Illumio. She creates content – ranging from technical demos to solution guides and whitepapers – to help customers understand and make the most of Illumio’s technology.

One of the largest public universities in the U.S. wanted to take advantage of their available free subscription to a large public cloud as part of their licensing agreement. They were looking to migrate their student web services to the public cloud and achieve high availability. This was their first foray into the public cloud, introducing a new set of challenges, spanning from operational maintenance to security of their hybrid infrastructure.
