Illumio Recognized as a Leader in Zero Trust eXtended (ZTX) Ecosystem

ILL

“The focus that the team at Illumio has adopted to clarify how the vendor enables Zero Trust for its specific technical offering has paid off,” writes Chase Cunningham, Zero Trust expert and principal analyst serving security & risk professionals, Forrester, in the report. “If you thought a perimeter-based security model was going to protect your business, there’s a different mindset you must adopt when it comes to information security,” said PJ Kirner, CTO of Illumio. “A Zero Trust model eliminates the assumption that internal traffic within the network can be trusted, and implements the principle of ‘never trust, always verify.’ Illumio was founded on this very principle and we’re proud to be recognized by Forrester for our work to enable customers as they progress on their Zero Trust journeys.”. The company’s approach to cybersecurity focuses on decoupling segmentation from the network infrastructure, simplifying the creation, testing, and enforcement of security policy without impacting the network in any way. As the report states, “there’s now no excuse not to enable microsegmentation for any company or infrastructure.”.

Microsegmentation at a massive scale: the Illumio cybersec platform - Tech Wire Asia

ILL

The role of IT in the enterprise, and especially that of IT Security personnel, is often misconstrued as being obstructive, rather than enabling. Historically the IT function’s purpose was to establish “normal practice” and then enforce that locally (to prevent ingress at the level of the end-user or single server instance) and at the perimeter, with intrusion detection, firewalls, and packet inspection technologies. There remains still a certain lag in intention to deploy, and the realization of the resources that are needed; that’s often down to having to manually re-architect security policies which at a practical level are represented by thousands of instances of many hundreds of lines of deny and permit rules. In fact, the most common security stance remains “permit and pray”: fingers crossed that a) apps don’t break, somewhere, somehow, and b) there are no doors left wide open. Software-defined networking, compute and storage have enabled enterprises to use their technology resources according to business need, removing the barriers that existed between differently-hosted services and apps: cloud-based, on-premise, distributed or centralized, abstraction offers enterprises a theoretical lack of limits on speed and deployment combinations.

Illumio Boosts Container Functionality in Cybersecurity Platform -- Virtualization Review

ILL

Cybersecurity specialist Illumio boosted its flagship platform with new functionality addressing containerized workloads. The new Adaptive Security Platform (ASP) release adds support for segmenting network communications for containers. "Illumio ASP addresses this crucial security concern with segmentation across Kubernetes and OpenShift container platforms, as well as consistent support of non-container environments. This is unlike container security point solutions, which create another segmentation silo to administer, or existing SDN or hypervisor-based segmentation solutions, which often rely on re-architecting infrastructure." Granular control for all workloads by decoupling enforcement from the network infrastructure, which does not require a policy to have access to anything except a specific workload -- across both containerized and non-containerized applications.

Illumio Adds Container Support, Battles VMware, Cisco - SDxCentral

CSCO ILL

The latest release of Illumio’s Adaptive Security Platform expands segmentation across Kubernetes, Docker, and OpenShift container platforms in addition to supporting non-container environments. This allows companies to govern workloads wherever they run from a single interface with a uniform policy model, automatically and at scale — beyond 100,000 workloads, said CEO and founder Andrew Rubin. It’s been a busy year for the security unicorn, which launched this scalability feature, raised $65 million in a Series E round that brought its total haul to $332.5 million, and hired Anup Singh as its CFO in the first two months alone. There is a lot of baseball left to play.”. So, Illumio is starting with Kubernetes, Docker, and OpenShift “to support how we believe the containerized world is unfolding and standardizing.”. But despite arriving late, Illumio claims its platform is more effective than a container security point product, which essentially creates another silo. And it’s more effective than other SDN or hypervisor-based segmentation like Cisco ACI with Tetration and VMware’s NSX, Rubin says.

Illumio Expands Cybersecurity Platform with Segmentation Across Containerized Workloads

ILL

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Sept. 18, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Illumio, the leader in segmentation for workload security, today announced support for segmenting network communications for containers with the latest release of its Adaptive Security Platform (ASP). Widespread adoption of public cloud environments and container-based computing is bringing unprecedented flexibility and agility to enterprise IT, as compute environments move steadily outside the data center. However, the benefits of these services can be offset by the need for security, especially in governing them consistently with segmentation policies already applied to existing applications running on data center infrastructure. "We wanted to have a solution that worked across any data center and any cloud vendor so that we can treat them as transient services that we can easily move between," said Colin Lennox of Baillie Gifford. The Illumio Adaptive Security Platform® uniquely protects critical information with real-time application dependency and vulnerability mapping coupled with segmentation that works across any data center, public cloud, or hybrid cloud deployment on bare-metal, virtual machines, and containers.

Illumio Achieves Federal Common Criteria Certification for Enterprise Security Management

ILL

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Aug. 27, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Illumio, a cybersecurity leader delivering micro-segmentation, today announced that it has completed the rigorous and comprehensive security testing and evaluation for Common Criteria certification. With Common Criteria certification, Illumio's Adaptive Security Platform (ASP) meets the Information Assurance (IA) requirements for U.S. Defense agencies, Allied Defense agencies, and other regulated industries to prevent the spread of breaches inside data center and cloud environments. "Government agencies face a myriad of cyber threats not only from outside actors but also insiders such as contractors and temporary workers who inadvertently put the network at risk. In fact, the issue is of such importance that the Department of Defense recently asked the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to develop a custom security guidance document for contractors to follow to better protect unclassified and classified materials," said Don French, Director of Federal Sales, Illumio. A certified product is one that a recognized Certification Body asserts as having been evaluated by a qualified, accredited, and independent evaluation laboratory competent in the field of IT security evaluation to meet the requirements of the Common Criteria and Common Methodology for Information Technology Security Evaluation (CEM).
