The newly launched Illumio CloudSecure solution provides organizations with agentless visibility. It would allow teams to build and orchestrate dynamic cloud workload policies at scale using native controls in their public, hybrid, and multi-cloud environments.
With Illumio’s Zero Trust segmentation solutions, security teams can prevent the devastating impact of cyberattacks and ransomware. They can secure their entire IT environment, including cloud-native applications like Platform-as-a -Service (PaaS), serverless, cloud managed containers, and managed database services, as well as workloads running in public cloud and hybrid cloud, data centers, and endpoints.
The new solution, Illumio CloudSecure, provides real-time insights on cloud-native application traffic, security policy, use, access, and risk exposure without the need for an agent. In a single interface, the solution provides organizations with visibility into their entire cloud-native infrastructure, cloud managed containers (AWS EKS, AWS ECS, Azure AKS, and others), serverless computing (AWS Lambda), cloud managed database instances (AWS RDS, Azure SQL Database, Azure Database, and others), Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), and other Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) resources.
This would remove frequent multi-cloud blind spots while detecting cloud risks, misconfigurations, vulnerabilities, malicious behavior, and security events in real time. Clients may lessen their dependency on different tools and human error with this intelligent and full visibility.
Automated Control, Orchestrated Policy and Enforcement
With Illumio CloudSecure, organizations can make educated decisions about what to prioritize and how to manage risk by understanding cloud-native application behavior based on what has happened and what may happen across various clouds. Illumio CloudSecure automates labeling and continually monitors cloud environments, allowing teams to swiftly detect problems and set security policies with dynamic controls. So that enterprises can offer security at the speed of DevOps, the solution automatically generates and proposes appropriate Zero Trust rules across cloud providers and accounts.
Illumio CloudSecure can program and orchestrate cloud workload security policies at scale inside of AWS Security Groups (and on Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform in 2022), allowing clients to mitigate risk and continuously protect cloud-native applications, virtual machines, containers, serverless, PaaS, and IaaS infrastructure – all without using an agent.
Organizations can also observe all workload communications and maintain a uniform security policy across their entire IT estate, from cloud-native apps and public/private clouds to data centers, mainframes, and endpoints, thanks to a strong interface with Illumio Core. In the end, enterprises would reduce risk, save money, and speed up their transition to a true Zero Trust security paradigm.
“The growing complexity of inter-cloud and data center communications makes it particularly challenging for organizations to understand and properly protect their environments, which often leaves the door wide open for attackers. Illumio CloudSecure builds resiliency into organizations’ multi-cloud environments to dramatically reduce the fallout of attacks,” said PJ Kirner, CTO and co-founder at Illumio. “Illumio CloudSecure is the only cloud-native, agentless application visibility and control solution that can be quickly deployed to provide a single interface to understand and mitigate risk across multi-cloud, hybrid cloud, and on-premises data center environments. This means users can see all communications between workloads and applications across their distributed business estate, understand and respond to threats, and ultimately better protect their organizations.”
