The 10 Hottest Zero-Trust Vendors To Watch In 2021
From scrutinizing users and forsaking VPN to embracing micro-segmentation and authentication throughout the network, here’s a look at 10 zero-trust vendors fighting for the dominant position in this booming market.
Illumio delivers end-to-end zero trust micro-segmentation from the data center and cloud to endpoints to stop the spread of ransomware and bad actors. The company said it protects against lateral movement across users, end-user devices, applications, workloads, network devices, servers, and other infrastructure.
The company said it leverages existing investments including host firewalls, switches, and load balancers to enforce segmentation across legacy and hybrid systems. And Illumio’s enterprise-level role-based access control ensures segregation of duties across policy owners, provisioners, security ops, compliance, and auditors.
Meanwhile, Illumio Edge protects remote user devices from the spread of ransomware whether on the network, remote, or using public WiFi. It also whitelists peer-to-peer application connections across laptops and endpoints. The company’s segmentation is a compensating control for unpatched devices, while Illumio’s encryption secures all data in motion between workloads, agnostic of OS or location.
