Illumio announced a new secure solution designed to prevent breaches from spreading to clouds and data centers from laptops.
Illumio Endpoint tackles the issue wherein hybrid work has expanded the attack surface and introduced new threats that make organizations more vulnerable. The solution directly addresses the need for employees to have secure access to applications and data wherever they are located.
With Illumio Endpoint, the first device that gets infected will also be the last. Company claims
It provides extended visibility and segmentation policy controls for macOS and Windows devices that allow organizations to see risk and stop attacks spreading from laptops, workstations and virtual desktop infrastructure.
The service provides a unified console to view and manage visibility and segmentation policy across endpoints, clouds and data centers, making zero-trust segmentation easier, faster and more efficient for security teams.
The ability to control application access, limiting users to accessing necessary applications from their device, not the entire data center and cloud, minimizes organizational risk from vulnerable or compromised endpoints.
