Illumio Delivers Adaptive Security for Nutanix Invisible Infrastructure

Nutanix Ready Validation and Partnership Reinforce Illumio’s Security Leadership and Innovation

SUNNYVALE, Calif. — Oct. 28, 2015 Illumio today announced a partnership with Nutanix, the next-generation enterprise computing company, to deliver adaptive security to Nutanix Xtreme Computing Platform (XCP)–based cloud environments. The software-based Illumio Adaptive Security Platform (ASP)™ provides an enterprise-ready continuous delivery system for security. It programs the ideal security policy and manages micro-segmentation across applications, workloads and processes as they are provisioned, operated and moved in any data center or private and public cloud infrastructure.

Illumio has joined the Nutanix Elevate Technology Alliance program and is validated as Nutanix Ready for all Nutanix XCP hypervisors (Acropolis, Hyper-V, ESXi). The partnership helps enterprise customers by reducing the risk of cyber incursions with rapid containment while providing the following core benefits:

  1. Live visibility of applications, micro-segmentation and encryption to secure distributed workloads running on Nutanix clusters
  2. Secure migration of workloads moving from legacy data centers and private or public clouds to Nutanix XCP without changes to infrastructure or applications
  3. Zero-touch security services that detect and automatically adapt as workloads are moved by Acropolis App Mobility Fabric for load balancing and disaster recovery

Organizations require the ability to increase operational speed for their application environments running on any computing platforms, and are challenged by the complexity of legacy firewall technologies. With the ability to embed an automated full suite of security to protect everything from processes to the application, enterprises can better contain threats and align with the dynamic, distributed nature of the new computing and DevOps models.

“Infrastructure and security must compete for applications, reversing the trend of increasing complexity, cost and risk of the past 20 years delivered by the incumbents,” said Alan Cohen, Chief Commercial Officer of Illumio. “Illumio and Nutanix share a common vision of using automation and adaptation to deliver the most secure enterprise computing in the world.”

“We are excited to have Illumio join the Nutanix ecosystem to deliver application- and VM-centric security for private and hybrid cloud environments running on Nutanix,” said Venugopal Pai, Vice President of Strategic Alliances and Business Development at Nutanix. “Using the Illumio Adaptive Security Platform on Nutanix XCP, customers will gain protection from cyber threats, without sacrificing their ability to meet the rate and pace of business requirements.”
