Gartner highlights Illumio as a Sample Vendor for microsegmentation, also called Zero Trust Segmentation.

Cloud adoption and a hybrid workforce have converged, creating increasingly diverse environments and an array of workloads.  

To protect your organization from an inevitable breach, Gartner® recommends security teams implement cybersecurity technologies that protect their data and workforce anytime, anywhere.  

Gartner® Hype Cycle™ for Workload and Network Security 2022 report highlights technologies to improve the security of your network and workloads, recognizing Illumio as a Sample Vendor for microsegmentation (also called Zero Trust Segmentation).  

According to Gartner, “Microsegmentation can reduce the risk and impact of cyberattacks. It is a form of zero-trust networking that controls the access between workloads and is used to limit lateral movement, if and when an attacker breaches the enterprise network. Microsegmentation also enables enterprises to enforce consistent segmentation policies across on-premises and cloud-based workloads, including workloads that host containers.”
