Illumio Named Most Innovative Data Center Security Solution

Illumio Adaptive Security Platform honored in 2016 Cyber Defense Magazine InfoSec awards

SUNNYVALE, Calif. — February 29, 2016 Illumio, the Adaptive Security Company, today announced that its Adaptive Security Platform (ASP)™ was named the Most Innovative Data Center Security Solution by Cyber Defense Magazine, the industry’s leading electronic information security magazine and media partner of the RSA® Conference 2016.

“We’re thrilled to recognize next-generation innovation in the information security marketplace and that’s why Illumio has earned this award from Cyber Defense Magazine,” said Pierluigi Paganini, Editor-in-Chief, Cyber Defense Magazine. “Some of the best InfoSec defenses come from these kinds of forward-thinking players who think outside of the box.”

Illumio ASP is the only software to deliver live visibility, adaptive segmentation and instant encryption that constantly adapts to changes in computing environments within the data center and cloud. With Illumio, security is always kept intact—including during moves, changes and orchestration—regardless of where a workload resides, and without any dependency on the network or hypervisor. The company’s newest feature, Adaptive User Segmentation, dynamically calculates and provisions connectivity rules based on user identity to prevent unauthorized communications with, and access to, any Illumio-protected applications.

“Illumio is a cybersecurity company that was founded to re-level the playing field between attackers and defenders,” said Alan Cohen, Chief Commercial Officer, Illumio. “We are seeing that organizations are ready to think differently about eliminating their attack surface inside their data center and cloud, and we’re honored to receive this recognition.”
