Rule Builder

CHALLENGE

As organizations look to apply segmentation in more areas to improve control over their data center and cloud environments, this often comes with additional operational overhead, higher potential for error, and inconsistent policies that don’t scale across environments. Organizations may have teams of people researching, manually writing, testing, and updating firewall rules just to control a fraction of their overall traffic.

SOLUTION

Rule Builder significantly reduces the operational overhead and complexity that has historically come with traditional segmentation efforts. At the Illumio console, for the first time, administrators can efficiently coordinate policy across data center and cloud environments at scale. Now anyone – whether an application owner or security administrator – can generate an entire application policy with the click of a button.

Rule Builder uses traffic to automatically build segmentation policies, saving security teams critical time, accelerating security workflows, and reducing the risk of human errors. It’s the simplest way to segment your data center and cloud while not requiring administrators to be security experts, and enables you to segment applications in minutes versus the hours to days it takes with current network security tools.

With Rule Builder, you can:

REDUCE ADMINISTRATIVE BURDENS WITH AUTOMATED POLICY GENERATION

  • Allow administrators to click and approve recommended flows.
  • Enable anyone to generate an entire application policy – with the click of a button.
  • Save time and money while gaining industry-leading segmentation.

SPEED UP DEPLOYMENTS WITH CONSISTENT, PRECISE, AND SIMPLE POLICY CREATION

  • Simplify policy creation for faster and easier deployment of Illumio adaptive segmentation.
  • Reduce hours of researching, planning, and modeling policies to minutes with automated policy recommendation and creation.
  • Create highly accurate, error-free segmentation policies taking into account all environmental data to generate recommended policy.

Examples

A leading SaaS organization had forty people writing rules for their legacy firewalls. Using Illumio Rule Builder, that same organization wrote rules for 20,000 servers and hundreds of applications with just two engineers.
