Illumio | January 12, 2023
The Zero Trust Segmentation company, Illumio, Inc., recently announced its Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) in process designation at the moderate impact level for its Illumio Government Cloud. This is sponsored by Department of Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General (HHS OIG).
The US government's FedRAMP initiative harmonizes security assessments, approvals, and monitoring for cloud solutions. Illumio Government Cloud, which includes Illumio Core and Illumio Endpoint prevents breaches from spreading across servers and endpoints with Zero Trust Segmentation (ZTS).
Illumio prevents breaches and ransomware in three easy steps:
See risk by using vulnerability maps that show data center-to-cloud-to-endpoint traffic
Set and automate the creation of granular policy to define categorization. Illumio's traffic-based policies streamline the process
Stop the spread of breaches to safeguard workloads and applications and strategically separate compromised systems and high-value assets, guard the hybrid attack surface during an active attack
Enterprise Strategy Group’s Zero Trust Impact Report found that Zero Trust Segmentation prevents five cyber disasters annually.
Gary Barlet, Federal Field CTO at Illumio, stated, "Bolstering national cyber resilience is a top federal priority. As more eyes turn to defending our critical infrastructure, Zero Trust Segmentation remains a strategic, and federally-backed mandate for agencies looking to shore up critical assets and to stop the spread of attacks throughout an organization or agency". He further added, "Zero Trust Segmentation is a fundamental pillar of any Zero Trust strategy, and Illumio is the industry-defining leader in the space, helping the largest organizations, including more than 15 of the Fortune 100, stop breaches from spreading to dramatically reduce agencies' risk."
