Recognizing that traditional detection and perimeter defenses are insufficient in the face of modern threats, Illumio advocates for a proactive and comprehensive security architecture. The founders aimed to create remarkably easy-to-use security technology that effectively prevents hackers and malware from laterally moving through networks.
Illumio’s focus on Zero Trust Security involves the belief that all organizations should assume they will be breached, necessitating a shift from flat, defenseless networks to a more robust security strategy. Illumio’s approach to Zero Trust Segmentation, including microsegmentation, addresses the hybrid attack surface to contain and minimize the impact of breaches and ransomware.
Key benefits of Illumio’s Zero Trust Segmentation include:
Proactive and Reactive Ransomware Containment: Illumio’s solution is designed to both proactively and reactively contain ransomware, limiting its impact on the organization.
Identification and Closure of High-Risk Pathways: The platform helps identify and close high-risk pathways and ports, reducing the potential for cyberattacks.
Strengthened Incident Containment: Illumio enhances incident containment capabilities, providing organizations with a more robust defense against security breaches.
Isolation and Protection of High-Value Applications and Databases: The solution enables the isolation and protection of high-value applications and databases, safeguarding critical assets.
