Illumio launches new Technology Alliance Partner Program

Zero Trust segmentation provider Illumio has announced a new Technology Alliance Partner Program (TAP).

Illumio says the newly designed program signals it’s strong commitment to the creation and distribution of meaningful integrations with technology partners across the ecosystem to reduce risk and accelerate the path to Zero Trust security adoption for modern enterprises.

According to Illumio, the new partner program announcement comes at a poignant time with research showing ransomware rose 15 percent in Australia this past year, with cybercriminals increasingly keen on exploiting national holidays to launch attacks in hopes of finding security teams distracted and ill-prepared.

Illumio observes that Australia has similarly seen increasingly malicious cyber attacks on critical infrastructure including the recent Sunwater breach and costly Federal Group payroll incident. 

Illumio says Zero Trust security is predicated on the “assume breach” mindset, which acknowledges that attackers are already in IT environments and uses a wide range of technology to prevent the severe impact of those attacks.

According to the Forrester August 2021 report, The Zero Trust eXtended (ZTX) Ecosystem, “Zero Trust has become a critical security initiative. Security teams across the world in both the government and corporate realms are using the simple but powerful concepts of Zero Trust as the foundation of their strategic plans and roadmaps.”

“That said, it cannot be achieved with any single product. The Illumio TAP makes it easy for partners to integrate with Illumio’s leading Zero Trust segmentation solutions through technology, APIs, documentation, and support, which creates comprehensive offerings for customers to reach their Zero Trust goals with ease and speed,” notes Illumio.

“Developing a true Zero Trust security approach requires partnerships across a broad array of leading security technologies,” said Eric Renner, Vice President of Technology Alliances at Illumio.

“Our new Technology Alliance Program will help our customers strengthen their cyber resiliency by better connecting our market leading micro-segmentation technology with other best-of-breed security solutions that they are deploying across their organisation. This strategic investment in our technology partners is an extension of our customer-first business mindset and our commitment to continued cybersecurity innovation.”

Illumio says it reduces risk for modern enterprises by providing visibility and protection of critical applications and data, and allows organisations to see risk and secure data across their entire environment, from data centres and endpoints to cloud-native apps, public and hybrid clouds. 

“The Illumio TAP is the next step in allowing organisations to better protect themselves with a holistic approach to implementing a Zero Trust security model,” concludes Illumio.

“One of the greatest challenges that organisations face today is business disruption caused by cyber-attacks such as ransomware. Illumio’s pioneering approach to ransomware containment through Zero Trust segmentation perfectly complements IBM Security QRadar XDR, Guardium data security, and verify identity and access management to protect, detect, and respond to cyber-attacks,” said Chris Meenan, VP of Product Management and Strategy at IBM Security.

“As Zero Trust strategies continue to evolve and mature, we’re thrilled to partner with companies like Illumio, who are introducing new approaches that minimise the impact of the most sophisticated threats.”

“Tenable has created an ecosystem of partners that allows organisations to analyse, gain context and take action from rich data sets and reduce risk,” said Ray Komar, Vice President of Technical Alliances at Tenable.

“We are happy to partner with Illumio, whose Zero Trust security model, visibility and segmentation nicely complement Tenable’s market-leading solutions.”

“The HashiCorp Terraform provider for Illumio allows DevOps users to manage Illumio resources using infrastructure as code,” said Asvin Ramesh, Sr. Director, Alliances, at HashiCorp.

“We are excited to have Illumio as a new technology partner.”
