Forbes Names Illumio as One of the Worlds Hottest Technology Companies

SUNNYVALE, Calif. — January 7, 2016 Illumio, the adaptive security company,  announced today that it has been recognized on two of Forbes “Hottest” lists as an industry breakout—the Hottest Startups of 2015 and the Hottest Cybersecurity Startups of 2015.

“We’re thrilled to be recognized by Forbes,” said Andrew Rubin, CEO and co-founder of Illumio. “Illumio  is providing the world’s largest organizations with the freedom to take their computing anywhere the business demands while dramatically reducing the attack within their data centers and clouds.”

Illumio was built to secure the 80 percent of computing within data centers and clouds that perimeter-centric security cannot reach. The Illumio Adaptive Security Platform (ASP)™ is the only security software to deliver live visibility and segmentation that automatically adapts to changes in computing environments.

Illumio ASP improves security in seven key ways:

  1. Eliminates the complexity of traditional firewall and network segmentation approaches
  2. Ensures the optimal security policies are continuously enforced for any applications, wherever they are running
  3. Reduces the attack surface due to errors or bad actors by up to 99 percent
  4. Provides live, interactive visibility to both the host and the network flows
  5. Delivers on-demand encryption to protect data in transit without the complexity of VLANs and firewalls
  6. Auto scales with hosts, and supports DevOps agility
  7. Provides data center and cloud security that never sleeps; security that is always vigilantly guarding your data center and cloud applications
