Secure a New Data Center

CHALLENGE

A new data center is a clean slate for application, network, and security architecture. Using traditional, network-based solutions creates a model that limits agility and falls short of meeting security requirements to protect applications and data. Additionally, traditional solutions can add unnecessary cost, complexity, and long-term technical debt to IT operations.

SOLUTION

Illumio adaptive segmentation provides the new foundation for data center and cloud security by bypassing the restrictions, complexity, and expense of legacy solutions (e.g., internal firewalls, VLANs, subnets, and zones) and delivering an adaptive segmentation solution that meets requirements for security and agility.

 

BUILD NEW DATA CENTERS WITH A FLEXIBLE FOUNDATION OF SECURITY

Illumio ASP eliminates restrictions imposed by the underlying infrastructure for a simplified, flexible, and highly scalable foundation for security.

  • Separate security segmentation (e.g., ACLs) from network segmentation (e.g., VLANs and zones) to remove complexity and improve flexibility in application delivery and security enforcement.

  • Flatten the network by removing VLANs, zones, and overlays to focus the network on performance.
  • Improve policy creation by eliminating network constructs (e.g., VLANs, subnets, zones, or IP addresses) for simpler segmentation policy and adaptable enforcement of security.

IMPROVE SPEED AND SECURITY FOR IT TEAMS

With integrated visualization, a declarative natural language security model, adaptive segmentation policy, and automation, security now moves at the speed of your applications.

  • Visualize the impact of adaptive segmentation policy on the application environment in real time to ensure policy effectiveness without breaking applications.
  • Define adaptive segmentation policy in natural language that is easy to describe and understand across teams with no details from the network environment.
  • Decrease the number of firewall rules inside the data center by over 95 percent to reduce complexity and increase efficiency of security.

  • Align security to applications by integrating with automation tools and adaptive segmentation policy that adapts to changes across the application environment.
