Illumio Advantages vs. Guardicore


grad-numb-1

We are a Zero Trust Leader

Forrester evaluates Zero Trust platform providers and recognized Illumio as the leader with the highest score in current product offering.

grad-numb-2

We scale without limits

Hundreds of thousands of workloads are a walk in the park for us. We don't limit the number of rules per workload to just a thousand. Only Guardicore has those limits.

grad-numb-3

We never harm performance or add latency

The high-performance firewalling capabilities we rely on never harm application performance or add latency. Guardicore forces the high-speed OS kernel to wait for their outside agent to do its job and send the packet back at the cost of performance and latency.

grad-numb-4

We never hack your OS

We leverage the high-performance firewalling capabilities in the OS without hacking the OS kernel. This is what Guardicore's inline agent does, disrupting the natural flow of packets and negating OS support agreements.

grad-numb-5

We accurately map applications

We never cut corners to deliver inaccurate or imprecise workload and application mapping. Our labeling and mapping uses the most accurate source of metadata on hand, not requiring heavy manual intervention to fix inaccuracies.

grad-numb-6

We are built for security

We visualize applications and overlay vulnerability scan data to quantify risk. We use this to automate segmentation policies to further minimize risk.
