How it Works

The Illumio Adaptive Security Platform® (ASP) helps you prevent the spread of breaches inside your data center and cloud with a real-time application dependency map, vulnerability exposure insights, and micro-segmentation that works on anything (bare-metal, virtual machines, and containers). One platform to protect your business critical "crown jewel" applications.

ARCHITECTURE OVERVIEW

Illumio ASP is uniquely designed to enable you to use the enforcement points that already exist in your infrastructure to improve your data center and cloud security. No additional hardware or re-architecting your network.

POLICY COMPUTE ENGINE (PCE)

The "brain" of Illumio ASP. The PCE builds a live map using the information shared from the VEN showing how applications are communicating and creates optimal security policies based on those insights.
