Illumio Introduces Security Templates to Shut Down Existing Security Gaps Inside Data Centers and Clouds

Ready-to-deploy policies provide instant security for Windows and Linux applications and services

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Oct. 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Illumio, the Adaptive Security Company, today introduced Illumio Security Templates, delivering ready-to-deploy security policies for core data center and cloud applications. Illumio Security Templates are pre-built to secure common applications—they provide segmentation without having to reconfigure the network in any way. Illumio Security Templates can be rapidly deployed to secure applications including Microsoft Active Directory, Exchange, Microsoft SharePoint, Microsoft SQL Server and MongoDB in minutes.

Illumio Security Templates are downloadable, tested and validated policy packs that provide all the segmentation rules needed to write a security policy for common enterprise applications or application components. 

Many applications—whether they are deployed in existing data centers or cloud computing environments such as Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services or Google Compute Engine—require IT to repeatedly write policies from scratch for every application and its components by plumbing the allowed IP addresses and port/process connections for each service. This approach is both time-consuming and error-ridden, creating delays and security gaps that frequently add days or weeks to the deployment process.

"Illumio's Security Templates let security and operations teams be as agile as they need to be," said Matthew Glenn, Vice President of Product Management at Illumio. "With 'push-button' policies, IT no longer needs to laboriously create manual (and error-prone) segmentation rules in switches and firewalls from scratch. Our security templates take the work out of categorizing applications, or modifying the network to secure these critical applications. Applying pre-tested rule sets rapidly and accurately enables truly adaptive segmentation approaches for applications."

The value of the new template approach is especially pronounced in Windows Server environments, where the lack of process awareness in firewalls and network-based security technologies limits the ability of these solutions to properly segment and secure applications. In addition, it frequently takes time to understand how these applications function before writing firewalls rules.

To achieve the same level of security provided by Illumio Security Templates with a network solution requires opening a wide range of ports on the servers, effectively increasing the attack surface of the environment. The Illumio Adaptive Security Platform (ASP)™ uses the specific process and path used by the server—rather than dynamic ports—and applies the exact set of fine-grained segmentation rules required for protection.

In addition, Illumio Security Templates take the guesswork out of security, since they have been tested to ensure that they do not break applications. Security templates allow organizations to extend their Active Directory domains up to public cloud without having to compromise on security.

The new Illumio Security Template program enables Illumio ASP to tightly wrap a segmentation policy around an application, which can then be deployed or migrated in minutes across a range of critical servers and applications. Below is a representative list of templates included in the Illumio Security Template program.

Windows Environments

  • SharePoint 2013
  • Exchange 2013
  • System Center Operations Manager 2012
  • Active Directory Domain Communication Server 2008/2012 R2

  • SQL Server 2014
  • Failover Clustering in Windows Server 2012/R2

Linux Environments
