    Overview

    Illumio Adaptive Security Platform is a next-gen software security solution that protects various computing platforms (containers, virtual machines, and bare-metal servers) in any type of environment (public cloud, hybrid cloud, private cloud, or data center). It integrates well with many third-party options, such as OpenStack, Google Compute Engine, Amazon Web Services, and Microsoft Azure without needing any additional dependencies on the organization's network, hypervisor, or environment.

    Illumio ASP provides:

    • Protocol-based encryption of all data in use between workloads as needed.

    • Flexible micro-segmentation that easily adapts to shifts in the application environment to ensure segmentation policies remain intact.

    • Real-time transparency of all applications, their elements, workflows, and possible risks across all environments, such as clouds (public, private and hybrid) and data centers.

    Illumio ASP empowers IT specialists to write policy protocols in natural language depending on the role or location of the workload or application environment. Illumio ASP then translates these protocols into granular security policies with no need to determine zones, VLANs, subnets, or IP addresses.

    Illumio ASP Benefits

    • Increase protection of up to 80% of cloud traffic and data centers that can be invisible to basic perimeter firewalls.

    • Negate blind spots that exist inside the cloud and data centers, keeping the application environment continually safe and secure.

    • Improve deployment speed and minimize service delivery delays.

    • Quickly determine suspicious behavior to immediately block threats.

    • Minimize the need for numerous firewall rules inside the data center.

    Illumio ASP Features

    • User-microsegmentation: Users are able to aggressively protect user relationships to applications. Users must have authorization/approval to see and use applications.

    • Threat-based micro-segmentation: Actively reduce risk and threats, reduce the potential for breaches, minimize east-west exposure, and prioritize patching needs.
    • Nano-segmentation: This allows users to design and implement adaptive micro-segmentation protocols attached to unique processes in order to protect vital applications without minimizing security or productivity.

    • Environmental-microsegmentation: Users are able to easily separate and protect environments in their networks without negative effect to the network or infrastructure.

    • Application segmentation: Better understand the best ways to protect critical service applications that contain critical or sensitive data or are highly regulated, such as PII, SOX, HIPAA, DSS, and PCI.

    • Cloud integration: Includes designing microsegmentation protocols that move data to the cloud. Implements zero-trust security protocols to protect data in all cloud options (public, private, multi, and hybrid). Improves overall cyber protection and minimizes risk.

    • Data center security: The solution has the ability to create new adaptive processes to meet an organization's requirements for security and flexibility without the need for costly legacy segmentation solutions.

    Illumio Adaptive Security Platform continually monitors and applies the exact security needed for each workload. The solution is able to intuitively respond to moves, scale, and changes to applications or infrastructure that are common with today’s complex data centers to ensure the organization is maintaining secure operations and functionality.

    Reviews from Real Users

    The most valuable feature of Illumio Adaptive Security Platform is monitoring. When I have no requirement from the other application, I can use the web block traffic to build.” - Edwin L., Security Architect at MGM

    vArmour addresses these data center security challenges by delivering the industry’s first distributed security system that provides application-aware micro-segmentation with advanced security analytics. Built in software, vArmour DSS Distributed Security System is architected to scale security across multi-clouds with deep insight and control of individual workloads. With its patented application-aware micro-segmentation capabilities, vArmour DSS moves security controls that were traditionally at the perimeter down next to each asset, wrapping fine-grained protection around every workload, regardless of where it resides. Workload-level visibility and control of inbound, outbound, and lateral traffic patterns from vArmour DSS helps organizations detect and prevent application misuse, policy violations, and advanced persistent threats across complex multi-cloud environments from a single system.
