Company’s Innovations Eliminate Manual Work Associated with Traditional Network Segmentation and Micro-Segmentation
SUNNYVALE, Calif., March 20, 2017 – Illumio announced today it secured three technology patents from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for its breakthrough cybersecurity platform. The patents recognize Illumio’s innovation in making adaptive segmentation faster for all companies to deploy for data center and cloud security.

The patents recently awarded to Illumio mark our R&D investment in making segmentation more secure and more operationally efficient for all companies to adopt as the new foundation for their data center and cloud security.”
