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 inside 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 platform that gives you 20/20 application visibility and 24/7 control to stop lateral movement – preventing the spread of breaches 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, often compromising a low-value target, then moves laterally across the network until they reach what they’re after.

We solved this problem. 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.

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, dubbed the top current offering for Zero Trust by Forrester Research in 2019.

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.

“When we saw how much setting up traditional firewalls between all of our applications/servers, we went down the rabbit hole and discovered micro-segmentation and evaluated various vendors. Illumio was by far the best choice for us, hands down.”

“We had a compliance need which required us to enable firewalls on approximately 500 internal systems within a 3-month period. Without the ability to map and visualize traffic … we would not have been able to achieve the goal within the timeline.”
