About ILUMIO

Organizations are under constant pressure to remain agile. While your data centers evolve and extend into public clouds, containers, and new types of compute resources, you need to ensure that your organization remains compliant with regulations and meets industry security standards.

At the same time, security frameworks like NIST and MITRE ATT&CK™ recommend that it is sound security practice to assume your perimeter defenses will be breached and to take appropriate actions to limit the movement of bad actors inside your data center and cloud environments. To address these frameworks while still remaining agile, many organizations are adopting Zero Trust security to reduce attack surfaces and mitigate exposure from different types of attacks.

Illumio ASP delivers real-time application dependency mapping and micro-segmentation to prevent the lateral movement of bad actors inside your data center and cloud environments. It provides real-time visibility into the connectivity between workloads across heterogeneous compute environments, generates optimal micro-segmentation policies based on how workloads communicate, and programs the native stateful enforcement points in each host to enforce applicable firewall rules.

ILUMIO's Benefits

1

Gain real-time visibility into application behavior and connections

Application layer visibility is the key to any micro-segmentation deployment. Illumio’s application dependency map, Illumination, gives you real-time visibility of applications, workloads, and flows to understand risk and build more effective micro-segmentation policies.

2

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.

3

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.

4

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 micro-segmentation as a compensating control to restrict communications to and from those vulnerabilities.
