#VMworld 2016 Interview with Illumio (@Illumio)

There was a lot of talk about micro-segmentation this year at VMworld, as VMware continues to educate its users on NSX while at the same time integrating the technology further within its SDDC vision. What some VMworld goers might not realize is that NSX is not the only option for micro-segmentation. Illumio’s (@Illumio) Adaptive Security Platform offers micro-segmentation that works on bare-metal, VMs and containers in on-prem data centers and private and public clouds—and it does so totally independent of the network or hypervisor, and in a matter of minutes.

However, as Alan Cohen, Chief Commercial Officer at Illumio, explains in the video, the company offers much more than micro-segmentation. At its core, Cohen says, Illumio is a security company that offers visibility, encryption and other security services for large distributed, heterogeneous environments. Cohen outlines Illumio’s benefits, what the tool does and how it works, which is truly powerful and fascinating.

It’s hard to describe just how powerful Illumio’s product is in plain words—you really have to see it for yourself. Luckly, the company offers both a free trial and a live demo.
