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).
Deployment: Cloud, Containers
Network / Infrastructure Independent
Scalability: 100k+ Workloads

EMPLOYEES & GROWING
“As a company, Illumio are hugely customer-focused and determined to see a successful delivery. They have been easy to work with throughout and beyond the implementation. Their product is exceedingly powerful and easy to use.”
“The solution does what we needed and is not overly complicated to maintain. The user interface is logical and easy to use.”
“Illumio has proven to be an invaluable tool in monitoring and identifying traffic flows within our network. The interface is clean and mostly easy to use (and constantly being improved and fine tuned).”
“The product has given us visibility into our network that we have not had before. I love the efficient way Illumio lays out the visibility within our systems. The layout of the SaaS implementation is very intuitive and easy to learn.”
“We needed to do segmentation without readdressing or migrating servers to new VLANs. Illumio’s maps show clearly who is talking to who.”
"Very responsive pre-sales and professional services implementation team. Project management was a particular strong point."
“One of the biggest benefits we have seen with Illumio is the ability to easily visualize data flows and dependencies between services. This has allowed us to improve solutions and tighten security without impacting service”
“Illumio made it possible for us to move workloads from on-prem to the Azure cloud and then to the AWS cloud easily, and not compromise any of the security for our Windows workloads.”
“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.”
“Illumio simplified the management of firewall rules. We were able to create rules based on observed traffic while using the product in monitor mode.”
“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.”
