Application Segmentation

Ringfence High-Value Assets for Compliance
and Risk Mitigation

Organizations must protect high-value applications that deliver critical services, contain sensitive data or PII, or are regulated by compliance mandates such as PCI DSS, HIPAA, and SOX. Reliance on solutions restricted by network constructs, including VLANs, subnets, zones, or IP-based rules, is cumbersome, manual, and error-prone. Legacy solutions are fundamentally inadequate in enabling the granularity and agility necessary to meet requirements for preventing malicious activity and lateral movement in today’s dynamic threat landscape.

Illumio Core™ prevents the spread of breaches with real-time application dependency mapping and security segmentation. Enterprises use Illumio to protect critical applications by disrupting the lateral movement of bad actors across any data center or cloud.


Protect high-value applications across heterogenous systems with confidence

Control sensitive East-West communications between applications, or application tiers, running on bare-metal, hypervisors, or containerized workloads within or across private data centers, public clouds, and hybrid clouds using host-based security segmentation.

  • Create policy and deliver a single control plane for architecting and operationalizing security across microperimeters.
  • Program the custom level of segmentation granularity—from coarse-grained to micro-segmentation.

Enable compliance—quickly

Meet compliance requirements, including PCI DSS, HIPAA, and SOX, without re-architecting your network by leveraging host-based enforcement points already in your applications.

Reduce complexity and streamline operations

Trade your restrictive network-based solution for the agility and flexibility of Illumio's segmentation with Zero Trust security—reducing firewall rules and network complexity by more than 95 percent.

"We had two problems that were solved by network ring-fencing: difficulty in protecting vulnerable legacy applications and extremely granular protection of valuable applications. What we liked best about Illumio was the simplicity of the product and how e
