Illumio Security Assesment Report Titlecard 2070x400-01

Building a first-of-its kind methodology to quantify the impact of micro-segmentation

Over the last few years, micro-segmentation has become an essential security control for organizations. But until now, the exact impact has never been effectively quantified. In this report, we share an industry-first blueprint for how to measure the efficacy of micro-segmentation based on the main components of the MITRE ATT&CK framework.  

Partnering with Illumio, our red team specialists designed a testing environment and assessment methodology to demonstrate how even a simple environmental separation policy can increase the difficulty of an attacker to reach its target by at least 300%.  

What's inside the report:

  • Learn how Bishop Fox structured the assessment to limit bias and measure the impact of micro-segmentation.
  • Explore the new methodology developed to benchmark the benefits of micro-segmentation solutions.
  • Review the detailed results of six attack simulations run on different workload environments.

Want a quick summary? Rob Ragan, Principal Researcher at Bishop Fox, shares the highlights of the engagement and report in this interview with Illumio's Field CTO, Raghu Nandakumara:
