Ensure device integration, visualize application dependencies, and secure microperimeters for compliance and to prevent the lateral movement of bad actors inside data centers and cloud environments.
Organizations today increasingly conclude that focusing on perimeter defenses does not solve the breach problem. Adversaries are always one step ahead. Both NIST and MITRE ATT&CK frame the discussion by assuming that malicious actors are already inside your network or will be in the near future. This mindset shifts the conversation from detection and prevention to containment and remediation. With this approach, organizations are making it more difficult or impossible for bad actors to traverse the internal network and reach high value assets.
Organizations are adopting a Zero Trust strategy as a way to approach the problem of building and securing their infrastructure. In order to implement Zero Trust security, organizations must first determine how transactions flow across the entire business ecosystem and how users and other systems access applications, services, and data. They use this information to create microperimeters around applications, workloads, and their dependencies; apply granular segmentation and communications policies; and continuously monitor and visualize any suspicious behavior or anomaly.
The Illumio Adaptive Security Platform® (ASP) delivers micro-segmentation as basic hygiene for Zero Trust security and enables organizations to:
