Three U.S. patents were awarded for Illumio's inventions in:
- Automating Segmentation Policy (U.S. Patent # 9485279):
A common challenge with micro-segmentation is having the resources needed to determine and create the policies that are critical to securing business applications. Through this patent, Illumio Adaptive Security Platform™ now offers an automated way for customers to generate and set rules for all applications running in bare-metal, virtualized or containerized environments — on-premises, in the cloud or across hybrid cloud deployments. This innovation in automation accelerates deployment times and reduces operational costs for Illumio's customers.
- End-to-End Policy Enforcement (U.S. Patent # 9509574):
Securing midpoint devices (e.g. load balancers) can introduce complexities for organizations aiming to achieve end-to-end security. That's because visibility is typically lost as teams write a policy from the client-side to the midpoint device, and then write another disconnected policy from the midpoint device to the server. Illumio's innovation introduces the ability to write policies in a consistent way to and through midpoint devices for end-to-end policy enforcement and further makes it easier for companies to gain the benefits of segmentation.
- Predictive Packet Analysis (U.S. Patent # 9553768):
One of Illumio's core philosophies is built around allowing customers to model policy within their infrastructure (e.g. running a policy to determine whether a firewall will block a critical network packet). This enables customers to explore and gain visibility into what specifically would happen if they were to change something within their data center or cloud environment, and predict the impact. Illumio calls this concept predictive modeling, and its packet analysis patent is one small part of that larger goal.
Illumio stops cyber threats by controlling the lateral movement of unauthorized communications through its breakthrough adaptive segmentation technology. The company's Adaptive Security Platform™ visualizes application traffic and delivers continuous, scalable, and dynamic policy and enforcement to every bare-metal server, VM, container, and VDI within data centers and public clouds. Illumio customers include nine of the largest 15 financial institutions in the U.S., and four of the top seven global Software-as-a-Service companies. Using Illumio, enterprises such as Morgan Stanley, Plantronics, Salesforce, King Entertainment, NetSuite, Oak Hill Advisors, and Creative Artists Agency have achieved secure application and cloud migration, environmental segmentation, compliance and high-value application protection from breaches and threats with no changes to applications or infrastructure.
