Reduce security complexity while enabling effective micro-segmentation with Illumio


Micro-segmentation designed for the workload

You need to implement policy at the workload level. Our platform is designed from the ground up to reduce complexity and streamline management overhead for workload protection.


Multi-dimensional labels for easy, granular policy

You need metadata to map policy in the modern hybrid world. We allow you to write natural language policy based on four dimensions, resulting in reduced operational burden and fewer labels to manage and maintain.


100% software approach that scales without limits

You need a flexible architecture that can scale as your environment grows. Our platform isn’t dependent on underlying network infrastructure and can easily scale from 100s to 100,000s of workloads.


Complete visibility across your entire hybrid cloud

You need to visualize workload traffic across your entire environment to define policy. We provide a real-time map of traffic across all compute (including containers) and don’t weigh you down with packet-level information and network analytics.


Automated segmentation speeds deployment

You need automation and analytics that eliminates human error in mapping policy. We automate segmentation policy creation to accelerate security workflows, save time, and reduce risk.


Designed to work with your existing tools

You need to reduce security silos, not stitch together multiple tools. We integrate with your existing ecosystem (SIEMs, vulnerability management, firewalls, etc.) for consistent and automated security.
