New Illumio Technology Offers New Encryption Capabilities To Protect Customers’ Traffic In Hybrid Cloud Environments

Illumio’s new SecureConnect Gateway would enable encrypted connectivity between Windows and Linux workloads in cloud computing environments including Amazon Web Services (AWS Cloud), Microsoft Azure, Google Compute Engine, and traditional security gateways running in the data center.

“Traditional approaches to encrypting and decrypting traffic in traditional data centers can be operationally challenging and are frequently implemented on an ad-hoc basis,” said Jon Oltsik, Senior Principal Analyst at ESG Research. “Illumio’s new capability can break down the encryption barrier between cloud workload and data center security operations, enhancing the enterprise’s journey to the hybrid cloud.”

Illumio‘s Adaptive Security Platform would visualize application traffic and deliver continuous, scalable, and dynamic policy and enforcement to every bare-metal server, VM, container, and VDI within data centers and public clouds. Using Illumio, enterprises such as Morgan Stanley, Plantronics, Salesforce, King Entertainment, NetSuite, Oak Hill Advisors, Workday, and Creative Artists Agency have achieved secured application and cloud migration, environmental segmentation, compliance and high-value application protection from breaches and threats with no changes to applications or infrastructure.
