Our mission is to enable every organization to realize
a future without high-profile breaches.

Every mission starts with a vision

We saw the rise of dynamic data centers, a hybrid world, and complex application environments. We saw perimeter-based security give way to a new need for segmentation from endpoints to the data center and cloud, and the risk in defending the new with the old.

We built a new way and pioneered security segmentation.

Our vision gave way to a security segmentation (also known as micro-segmentation) platform that gives you 20/20 application visibility and 24/7 control to stop lateral movement – preventing the spread of breaches on endpoints or across any data center or cloud on bare-metal, virtual machines, and containers.

Our customers are some of the largest organizations with the most critical data in the world. Trust and innovation are the core of what we do.

Solving the lateral movement problem

Lateral movement occurs in every single breach. An intruder breaches the perimeter then moves laterally across the network until they reach what they’re after.

We solved this problem. With Illumio Core, it all starts with a map that gives you complete visibility into any application environment, no matter how complex it is, and brings to light what’s communicating and what shouldn’t be. Use that map to simply create East-West segmentation policies. Illumio Edge brings this same approach to prevent the lateral movement of ransomware and malware between endpoints.  

Visibility begets simplicity. This is why customers rely on Illumio to keep lateral movement in check and reduce their cyber risk.

More security, less complexity

While many solutions deliver segmentation capabilities, they’re designed to do other things.

Illumio was purpose-built for security and founded on the principle of Zero Trust. After being dubbed a leader in the 2019 Forrester Zero Trust Wave, Forrester recognized Illumio as a leader in Zero Trust in the Q3 2020 report, with the highest scores in the three primary categories (current offering, strategy, and market presence).

Here’s how security
segmentation is different.

It’s decoupled from your network architecture,
giving you segmentation that is easier, faster, and safer.

It’s the only segmentation option that will work with all of your
heterogeneity, now and in the future.

It allows you to operate at the speed of business and solve the
problem at the same time.
