Segmented Security Startup Illumio Raises $65M in Series E Round (TechCrunch)


Illumio has raised $65 million in its latest round of funding led by J.P. Morgan Asset Management, the security startup has confirmed. The data-center monitoring and cloud security company focuses on network segmentation. By isolating critical applications and data centers from the rest of the network, Illumio makes data leaks and breaches far more difficult to spread. That containment stops hackers from pivoting and navigating through a network in an “Equifax-style” attack.
