New community reflects growing maturity of Illumio client deployments and increasing need for adaptive segmentation strategies

SUNNYVALE, Calif. – May 24, 2017 – Illumio today announced that it has launched The Segment, its first ever community. This online forum gives Illumio clients access to adaptive segmentation best practices via an online knowledge base and peer-to-peer forums. Today’s announcement furthers Illumio’s commitment to provide clients with the ability to share their advanced knowledge and provides access to the tools they need to successfully implement adaptive segmentation at scale.

The Segment offers access to the following features and benefits:

  • Peer-to-Peer Forums: Clients can discuss best practices in real time with their peers and Illumio technical experts, search the forums library to find answers, and post insights.
  • Tools Catalog: Clients have access to Illumio’s segmentation templates with ready-to-deploy security policies for core data center and cloud applications, an extensive scripts library designed to enable enhanced product functionality, and Illumio’s API library.
  • Product Idea Exchange: Clients can provide roadmap feedback by suggesting new features and product enhancements, and vote for the best ideas.
  • Knowledge Base: The Community indexes hundreds of technical resources, such as documentation and open-sourced code, so clients can find answers to their questions instantly.

"Our clients are leading the shift from network-centric segmentation for security," said Scott Downie, VP of Support and Services, Illumio. "As a result, they have collected a unique set of advanced knowledge about deploying adaptive segmentation at scale. The launch of our community reflects the growing maturity of our clients’ deployments and rapidly increasing market demand for a new approach to security inside the data center and cloud."
