Gartner® Hype Cycle™ for Cloud Security, 2021

As public cloud adoption accelerates, increasingly complex cloud services bring new risk challenges for protecting enterprise workloads. In fact, Gartner says, “By 2023, 70% of all enterprise workloads will be deployed in cloud infrastructure and platform services, up from 40% in 2020.”    
 
The Gartner Hype Cycle for Cloud Security 2021 report highlights key technologies to improve the security of public and hybrid cloud deployments, recognizing Illumio as a Sample Vendor for “identity-based segmentation” (also known as Zero Trust segmentation and micro-segmentation).  

According to Gartner, “Identity-based segmentation can reduce the risk and impact of cyberattacks” such as ransomware. It “enables enterprises to enforce consistent segmentation policies across on-premises and cloud-based workloads, including workloads that host containers that meet compliance requirements.”
