Description of Security Product
Illumio ASP is a distributed software platform designed to continuously protect communications within and across tiers of applications. It creates secure segmentation to compartmentalize workloads and applications, reducing the attack surface exposed to cyber vulnerabilities. The Illumio system constantly inspects and adapts to the computing environment it is protecting, without pause. Moreover, since 75 percent of computing interactions never leave the data center, Illumio’s customers can now have complete visibility behind the firewall, whether it is running in their data center or the vibrant public cloud services of Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Google Compute Engine, Rackspace, and many others. Illumio’s platform underpins its customers’ ability to move to new data center technologies such as cloud. It helps them achieve an order of magnitude improvement in their security posture and operational efficiency. Illumio ASP is decoupled from the infrastructure. It supports all server computing formats (Windows/Linux, virtual machines, containers) and all computing environments (data center, private and public cloud).
