Illumio Recognized as a Leader in Zero Trust eXtended (ZTX) Ecosystem
“The focus that the team at Illumio has adopted to clarify how the vendor enables Zero Trust for its specific technical offering has paid off,” writes Chase Cunningham, Zero Trust expert and principal analyst serving security & risk professionals, Forrester, in the report. “If you thought a perimeter-based security model was going to protect your business, there’s a different mindset you must adopt when it comes to information security,” said PJ Kirner, CTO of Illumio. “A Zero Trust model eliminates the assumption that internal traffic within the network can be trusted, and implements the principle of ‘never trust, always verify.’ Illumio was founded on this very principle and we’re proud to be recognized by Forrester for our work to enable customers as they progress on their Zero Trust journeys.”. The company’s approach to cybersecurity focuses on decoupling segmentation from the network infrastructure, simplifying the creation, testing, and enforcement of security policy without impacting the network in any way. As the report states, “there’s now no excuse not to enable microsegmentation for any company or infrastructure.”.
