Great auto policy writing and good mapping with an easy setup process
Pros and Cons
  • "The Explorer allows you to know the traffic between source and destination."
  • "The customer service is lagging a bit. It could be better."

What is our primary use case?

It's really good for avoiding and controlling lateral movement. Since everywhere there is ransomware, it's very good for micro-segmentation so that we can allow what is required for application-to-application communication. We are allowing what is required and blocking all unnecessary traffic, so that, in that way, we can control the attack surface, so we can reduce the attack surface. We're trying to secure the application and the company network as well.

How has it helped my organization?

We use it to write a policy for all the infrastructure-related servers manually. It will detect the infrastructure flows, and it will advise you automatically that you need to allow the traffic or block it. It'll use access just from the previous flows.

What is most valuable?

Everything is valuable in Illumio. We love the product.

The auto policy writing is great. The feature will give you the option of the inbound-outbound traffic. 

The Explorer allows you to know the traffic between source and destination. 

We have a feature called parallel coordinates. There, we can see what application is talking to which application and where a single application is talking to many applications. 

The illumination definitely stands out. Mapping is great. The application group mapping is useful. 

It's straightforward to set up.

What needs improvement?

Every month, we're getting new features. It's always improving. I don't see a place where it is weak or lacking in development. 

The customer service is lagging a bit. It could be better. 

We'd like labeling to be better. For example, if someone, by mistake, if he edits that labeling part, it should give you a warning pop-up to the effect of "Are sure to edit this enforced application?" so that person immediately will know that this is the enforced application and he should not touch that application labeling.

Find out what your peers are saying about Illumio, Guardicore, Cisco and others in Cloud and Data Center Security. Updated: August 2022.
632,611 professionals have used our research since 2012.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've used the solution for more than one and a half years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability is good. It's reliable. There aren't bugs or glitches. It doesn't crash or freeze. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It is a very scalable product. Expanding is not a problem.

We have about 15 users on the solution. They are mostly engineers as well as two analysts and one product owner. 

We do plan to increase usage. 

How are customer service and support?

Technical support could be better. When we get a reply from support engineers, it is not kind or empathetic. They also delay some responses - sometimes, not always. Maybe it depends from engineer to engineer. They could be a lot better, a lot more helpful.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We did not use anything previously. This is really the best product. 

We have a Nebule product - a Nebule cloud, a Nebule solution that is LSDX, a VMware LSDX. That is also in place, along with Illumio. It is not yet live. We are focusing on Illumio for on-prem. Once it moves to the cloud, we have been considering both Illumio and LSDX.

How was the initial setup?

The initial implementation is simple. It's not complex. 

I was not there during the initial setup, however, the deployment might have taken about there months or so. That included the approvals and the entire setup process. 

In terms of deployment and maintenance, it all depends on how many applications you're going to onboard. It's not a straight answer. It all depends on the amount of work you are doing in your organization. 

What about the implementation team?

There were people to help us from Illumio Professional Services Consultant, so we didn't find it hard to set up in our environment. For the most part, we handled the setup in-house. 

What was our ROI?

It's too early to really account for an ROI. We still need time with the product. We are seeing value in the product, however.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I'm just an engineer. I don't deal with the licensing aspect of the product.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We looked at a few other options, for example, Guardicore. There were a couple that we examined. We might have also looked at Cisco. 

What other advice do I have?

Right now, we are using a non-production, 21.2.3 version. In production, we are in 19.3.6, which we are going for an upgrade on the weekend, which will be 21.2.30.

Right now, the deployment is on-premises. The roadmap is to go to a SaaS product with Illumio, however, right now, it's on-premises. It is being used for on-premises, however, we are thinking to make use of the cloud as well, using the CloudSecure product.

We like the solution. It's light. It doesn't take too many resources. For anyone to implement the product, it's pretty straightforward and simple. It's also very effective. It's very quick and very flexible to implement. That's the thing I can advise - just to implement this product and try it out.

I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.

Helpful support, useful monitoring, and high availability
Pros and Cons
  • "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."

What is our primary use case?

We only deploy Illumio Adaptive Security Platform on the servers, and only apply the server segmentation. Our scope for using Illumio is relatively small, and so far it's good because our scope is only applied to the server farms.
