Illumio: A Leader in Two Forrester Wave Reports

Illumio’s Zero Trust Segmentation stops breaches from spreading into cyber disasters

Forrester named Illumio a Leader in both The Forrester New Wave™: Microsegmentation, Q1 2022 and The Forrester Wave™: Zero Trust eXtended Ecosystem Platform Providers, Q3 2020.

We believe our position as a leader in these two Forrester Wave reports confirms what our rapidly growing list of customers already knows: Illumio sets the standard for predictable, scalable microsegmentation that supports a unified and disciplined approach to Zero Trust security. We call this Zero Trust Segmentation.

Illumio also believes these reports are validation of a rapidly growing market, as businesses and governments turn to Zero Trust and microsegmentation to build better defenses against increasingly potent ransomware and other forms of cyberattacks.

According to The Forrester New Wave: Microsegmentation, Q1 2022: “Implicit trust on the network must end, and microsegmentation is the key.”

Microsegmentation Purpose-Built for Zero Trust Security


In The Forrester New Wave for Microsegmentation report, Forrester scored Illumio as “differentiated” in half assessment criteria for policy management, policy enforcement, interface/reporting, product vision, and product and service support.

Forrester also wrote that customers praise Illumio’s approach to labeling, the platform’s ability to troubleshoot connectivity issues, and its robust role-based access control (RBAC) policies.

As Forrester noted in the report: “Illumio’s policy management, policy enforcement, and interface set the standard for microsegmentation.”

Forrester added: “[Illumio] is the choice for organizations wanting predictable microsegmentation at scale...[it] enforces a disciplined approach to Zero Trust security that many organizations sorely need.”

In The Forrester Wave: Zero Trust eXtended Ecosystem Platform Providers, Illumio received the highest rankings in three primary assessment categories for current offering, strategy and market presence.

Illumio also received the highest scores possible in 11 criteria, including network security, workload security, visibility and analytics, APIs, future state of Zero Trust infrastructure, vision and strategy, advocacy, mission completion, customers investing in portfolio, and portfolio growth rate.

In this day and age, it’s essential to implement microsegmentation to limit lateral movement from any attacker or malware that gets into your network. It is only a matter of time before you have your own breach. So you need to be prepared.

Detection and Perimeter Defenses Are No Longer Enough. You Will Be Breached.
