environmental Segmentation

CHALLENGE

The separation of environments such as development, test, and production can be a challenge for organizations that have significant and distributed data center and cloud assets. Segmenting environments with traditional network solutions can be impossible, as environments and applications can be dynamic and span multiple environments or data centers.

SOLUTION

Illumio ASP addresses challenges of separating and securing environments without impact or dependencies on the underlying application infrastructure.

 

SIMPLIFY SEPARATION OF ENVIRONMENTS WHILE IMPROVING SECURITY

Isolate environments such as a specific data center, application, development, or production with a single declarative, natural-language policy.

  • Centralize adaptive segmentation policy creation to reduce complexity and the potential for errors.
  • Coordinate enforcement of policy in the workload, network, and through cloud security controls.
  • Include encryption of communications between environments with the check of a box for AES-256 IPsec encryption.

ADAPT POLICY TO CHANGES IN EACH ENVIRONMENT

Current context of the application environment triggers automatic recalculation and distribution of security policy across the application environment.

  • Update policy enforcement automatically with every application move, scale, or change.
  • Move and deploy applications with security in place and without the overhead of security process.

Examples

  • Financial institutions that need to show separation of development and production for compliance
  • Software companies that want to fence off skunkworks projects from main development environments
