Achieve Zero Trust security
Microsegmentation plays a key role in achieving Zero Trust security.
Microsegmentation has emerged as one of the best techniques to protect organizations against breaches by restricting attacker lateral movement and reducing your attack surface. Gone are the days when a hard security perimeter was enough to protect critical assets and applications. A modern compute estate can span one or multiple data centers and public clouds, from hosted environments to partner networks. This inevitably broadens your attack surface and leaves ample opportunity for breaches, making prevention extremely difficult, if not impossible. Containment is paramount.
Illumio Core™ offers a network agnostic host-based solution to deploy microsegmentation at scale with ease and high efficacy. Illumio Edge extends segmentation to endpoints for a true end-to-end segmentation deployment.
Gain real-time visibility into application behavior and connections
Application layer visibility is the key to any microsegmentation deployment. Illumio's application dependency map, Illumination, gives you real-time visibility of applications, workloads, and flows to understand risk and build more effective microsegmentation policies.
Improve breach containment
Prevent unauthorized lateral movement and reduce your blast radius. Creating micro-perimeters around specific assets breaks up your attack surface and gives you granular control needed to contain breaches.
Secure critical applications and assets with confidence
Control sensitive East-West communications between applications or application tiers running on bare-metal, hypervisors, or containerized workloads across private data centers, public clouds, and hybrid clouds. Illumio allows you to test policies first to ensure enforcing segmentation won't break applications.
Streamline policy management
Decouple segmentation from the underlying network to define policies based on the language that IT uses. Illumio's human-readable labels make policy creation much simpler and faster than traditional network segmentation approaches like VLANs, IP addresses, and port numbers.
Bolster your regulatory compliance posture
Meet compliance requirements, including PCI DSS, HIPAA, and SOX, without re-architecting your network. Easily segment and isolate protected systems, and encrypt communications within and across applications.
Reduce the risk of software vulnerabilities
Vulnerabilities are a fact of life but patching them is not always possible. Illumio combines third-party vulnerability scan data with the application dependency map to help identify an attacker's potential pathways. Use microsegmentation as a compensating control to restrict communications to and from those vulnerabilities.
