Security in an OpenStack environment needs to be agile and abstracted from the network infrastructure to truly realize the advantages of the private cloud. Traditional mechanisms involving firewalls and complicated rules are not the norm in these deployments because deployment speed is of the essence. Further, security needs to be consistent across private clouds, legacy data center assets, and any potential footprint in public clouds.
The Illumio Adaptive Security Platform® (ASP) completely decouples security from the underlying network infrastructure. You can simply integrate Illumio ASP and allow the cloud to provide connectivity and forwarding fabric. This enables you to secure applications running in your OpenStack environment as well as within and across private data centers, public cloud, bare-metal, and virtual machines.
Illumio ASP's application dependency map, Illumination, gives you live visibility of applications, workloads, and flows to help understand application behaviors within OpenStack and across legacy data centers.
Illumio ASP secures applications with micro-segmentation that adjusts to changes as workloads spin up and spin down—as applications move and scale, so does security.
Illumio ASP simplifies security for hybrid cloud deployments with applications divided between public and OpenStack by maintaining consistent policies across all computing environments.
Illumio ASP enables you to secure traffic between workloads within and across OpenStack and private data centers with one-click IPsec encryption.
