Illumio: The Evolution of Segmentation in Decoupling Security From the Network


Data center and cloud computing security company Illumio has published a new white paper, titled “Decoupling Security from the Network: The Evolution of Segmentation.”

Businesses rely on the network to deliver applications. But as IT scales in size, connectivity, and environments outside the network to public cloud, you can’t rely solely on the network to secure applications.

The answer is to decouple security segmentation from the network. This allows for the protection of applications wherever they run: because they do not live exclusively on our networks anymore, and enforcement must go wherever they do.
