Illumio was co-founded in mid-2012 by CEO Andrew Rubin and CTO PJ Kirner. Having over 20 years each in the tech industry and significant leadership time invested in previous start-ups, their strategy was to staff a minimal core leadership team and focus on applying more resources on the engineering team to take care of business. That strategy has paid off. By January 2013, they were able to close $8M USD in series A funding and another $34.5M USD in series B funding in August 2013. Nearly a year later in August 2014, they released their first production release and subsequently worked until October 2014 to bring the company out of stealth mode and into the limelight.

Illumio's Adaptive Security Platform (ASP) was created to address three fundamental problems with security. One, the need for the flexibility to run an application anywhere and scaling at will. Two, the need for delivery at the speed of business to eliminate the security bottleneck. Three, the need for granular context about all of the resources in the delivery of the application to clearly define, isolate, and protect those resources form other infringement while allowing the application to freely operate.
