Illumio, Netskope join forces for comprehensive zero trust cybersecurity

Zero trust segmentation provider Illumio, Inc. and secure access service edge company Netskope have announced a partnership that brings together zero trust segmentation and zero trust network access to protect against breaches and build cyber resilience.

The partnership combines Illumio ZTS with Netskope ZTNA Next via the Netskope Cloud Exchange platform to enable network and security teams to create zero trust policies for an organisation’s perimeter and within its hybrid, multi-cloud infrastructure.

“Our partnership with Illumio ensures that the Netskope One platform learns additional, needed context around private workload posture to help inform and reinforce the security with which private applications and workloads are accessed,” said David Willis, vice president of technology alliances at Netskope.

Key offerings of the collaboration include:

  • Visibility Across Hybrid Environments: By combining application-to-application and risk-based visibility from Illumio ZTS with the user-to-application-based visibility in Netskope ZTNA Next, organisations gain a real-time view of user-to-application and application-to-application traffic, enabling them to better understand end-to-end risk.
  • Protection For End Users From Non-Compliant Workloads: Combined visibility between platforms enable security teams to define Netskope policy to block access between users and potentially compromised workloads, or workloads in segmented environments, increasing resilience.
  • Dynamic ZTNA Policy: Netskope’s security policies are automatically updated based on metadata from Illumio, removing the need to rewrite rules as workload attributes change, helping protect users and critical applications and allowing organisations to scale their zero trust architecture.

With ransomware attacks on the rise, organisations are turning to zero trust solutions to strengthen resilience. ZTNA is already widely adopted, with “strong adoption among large organisations and mid-market organisations,” according to Gartner.

Adoption of microsegmentation is also expected to rise. Gartner predicts that “by 2026, 60% of enterprises working toward zero trust architecture will use more than one deployment form of microsegmentation, up from less than 5% in 2023”.

“Organisations need their zero trust technologies to share context so that they have the same view of the environment they’re protecting and can update policies accordingly,” said Mario Espinoza, chief product officer at Illumio.

“Illumio provides Netskope with the needed context to prevent remote users from accessing compromised workloads, while also protecting potentially non-compliant internal workloads from remote access, stopping breaches from spreading,” added Espinoza. NDTV Profit
