Illumio partnered with AZ Asia-Pacific to support organizations with digital transformation using Zero Trust Segmentation across ASEAN

Singapore, February 01, 2023 — Illumio has partnered with AZ Asia-Pacific to empower organisations in breach containment with the goal of minimising impact and ultimately to increase their cyber resilience.

Illumio, the Zero Trust Segmentation company, stops breaches from spreading across the hybrid attack surface. The Illumio ZTS Platform visualizes all traffic flows between workloads, devices, and the internet, automatically sets granular segmentation policies to control communications, and isolates high-value assets and compromised systems proactively or in response to active attacks. Illumio protects organizations of all sizes, from Fortune 100 to small business, by stopping breaches and ransomware in minutes, saving millions of dollars in application downtime, and accelerating cloud and digital transformation projects.

According to Gartner, ‘Spending on information security and risk management products and services is forecast to grow 11.3% to reach more than $188.3 billion in 2023. Cloud security is the category forecast to have the strongest growth over the next two years. As organisations increase focus on Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG), third-party risk, cybersecurity risk and privacy risk, Gartner forecasts that the integrated risk management (IRM) market will show double-digit growth through 2024, until greater competition results in cheaper solutions.’

“With the increasing demand in the market, it is our role to raise awareness of the fact that cyber threats can come not only externally but also from the system itself, and thus the emergence of the concept of Zero Trust in cyber resilience. The Partnership with Illumio is a timely strategic collaboration where their Zero Trust Segmentation can help organisations stop malicious attacks at a time when cybersecurity landscape is becoming increasingly complex.” said Seth Ho, Chief Revenue Officer of AZ Asia-Pacific.

 “Today’s pervasive ransomware attacks and catastrophic breaches have confirmed that current cybersecurity approaches are failing, and organisations need to implement a Zero Trust architecture to build resilience to inevitable breaches,” said John Ryan, Vice President of Global Channel Sales at Illumio. “Segmentation is a critical pillar of any successful Zero Trust strategy that dramatically reduces organisations’ risk from cyberattacks, and we’re thrilled to partner with a premier distributor like AZ Asia-Pacific to jointly deliver great value in market.”
