Illumio introduces Automated Enforcement

Illumio has introduced new innovations in Illumio Core® which automate, accelerate, and simplify the path to a Zero Trust posture. Cyberattacks and ransomware are most successful when they break through the perimeter and move, often undetected, throughout an organisation. Illumio Core locks this movement down. New advancements in Illumio Core allow organisations to automate security enforcement, gain even more intelligent insights from real-time application data, and operate at cloud-scale.

Illumio Core is the only SaaS Zero Trust Segmentation platform proven to easily scale to more than 100,000 workloads across multi-cloud, container, hybrid and on-premises environments. New innovations introduced include:

• Automated Security Enforcement: Immediately enforce security policy across an entire organisation to protect specific high-value assets, like intellectual property or customer data, or choose to selectively and progressively enforce policy one service at a time. This “enforce and expand” approach gives organisations the control and freedom to deploy automated policies at scale and within minutes, or at their own pace.

• Intelligent Visibility: Real-time application insights make it even easier to create, enforce, and test security policy. Identify and track workloads that are most at risk with intelligent scoring and flagging of vulnerability and exposure data via integrations with Qualys, Rapid7, and Tenable. And allow DevOps and application teams to monitor workloads coming in and out of applications hosted in public clouds to simplify and secure cloud migrations and automate multi-cloud security.

• Zero Trust Segmentation at Scale: While legacy approaches to Zero Trust Segmentation fail at the scale and complexity of modern work, Illumio Core introduced SuperCluster to make it even easier to enforce more than 100,000 workloads in cloud, container, hybrid, and on-premises environments. New integrations now orchestrate extended enforcement in Palo Alto Networks and F5 devices and can also support IBM Cloud and Oracle Exadata in addition to pre-existing integrations with Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform, and Microsoft Azure.

"We must protect our customers, our brand, and our intellectual property, as the threat landscape continues to evolve and mature. We recognize that no company can stop all attacks from getting into IT, but there is an opportunity to prevent those attacks from spreading beyond their entry point,” said Jessica Ferguson, Deputy CISO, Docusign. “Illumio is a strategic partner in our Zero Trust journey, and the new updates in Illumio Core will only further our ability to create and enforce modern security policy and transition parts of our business to the cloud with confidence and at hyper-scale.”

“Our new automated security enforcement can immediately create Zero Trust policy at the beginning of a customer’s journey, so they can segment their environments and start seeing value in a matter of days,” said PJ Kirner, Co-Founder and CTO, Illumio. “Only relying on a prevent, detect, and respond framework is dangerous and does not acknowledge the need for post-intrusion security to protect an organization. A Zero Trust strategy assumes breach and uses Zero Trust Segmentation to ensure that attacks infiltrating IT don’t become cyber disasters. The new innovations in Illumio Core help security teams automate, collaborate, and integrate with other technologies for a faster way to secure workloads.”
