In Pursuit Of Improving Cybersecurity In The Data Center And Cloud, Illumio Awarded Three Patents For First Of Its Kind Adaptive Segmentation Technology
Monday, March 20, 2017

Company's Innovations Eliminate Manual Work Associated with Traditional Network Segmentation and Micro-Segmentation

SUNNYVALE, Calif., March 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Illumio announced today it secured three technology patents from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for its breakthrough cybersecurity platform. The patents recognize Illumio's innovation in making adaptive segmentation faster for all companies to deploy for data center and cloud security. The news also awards Illumio's ability to improve the cyber posture of how segmentation is achieved.

"Despite some of the security benefits network segmentation and micro-segmentation can provide, too often we hear from our customers that they increase operational overhead, take too many people to implement or are too expensive," said PJ Kirner, co-founder and CTO of Illumio. "We are missioned to help organizations model and test policies before they put them into widespread production in the largest data center and cloud deployments in the world, as evidenced by our traction with nine of the largest 15 financial institutions and four of the largest seven SaaS providers. The patents recently awarded to Illumio mark our R&D investment in making segmentation more secure and more operationally efficient for all companies to adopt as the new foundation for their data center and cloud security."

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(TM) 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.
