Enforcement Boundaries


Dramatically accelerate and simplify the path to Zero Trust security without firewall rule ordering complexity.



Organizations have traditionally relied on networking, SDN and firewalls to segment and control east-west traffic, using a combination of "deny-list" and "allow-list" rules. This approach requires administrators to keep track of the priority order of firewall rules. For organizations that need to implement more granular segmentation and achieve Zero Trust security, it becomes operationally daunting. Some default to overly broad allow-list rules to avoid firewall rule management complexity — contradicting the Zero Trust standard for allow-listing.

Illumio Enforcement Boundaries addresses these common blockers to achieving Zero Trust and allows organizations to realize quick security wins. With Enforcement Boundaries, you can safely, effectively and efficiently progress from a combined deny-list and allow-list firewall rules model to a true allow-list, all while avoiding the complexity of tracking and managing rule ordering.

Enforcement Boundaries include a guided workflow that makes it easy to:

  • Design and enforce true Zero Trust Segmentation policies, even with imperfect information
  • Design "blocking rules" to selectively block traffic using natural language instead of networking constructs like IP addresses and VLANs
  • Model, test and review the impact of the blocking rules on live traffic without breaking applications
  • Quickly reduce risky traffic between application and workload groups
  • Incrementally build a true allow-list model while avoiding the challenges of managing firewall rules order sequence and priority
  • Create allow-list rules that keep up with dynamic changes in your environment
  • Monitor and report on the progress of Enforcement Boundaries for your Zero Trust Segmentation program
