Gartner® Report - Market Guide for Microsegmentation

This Gartner® Market Guide on Microsegmentation highlights today's important key findings when it comes to the security and risk management and recommendations that SRM leaders responsible for infrastructure security should follow.

Security and Risk Management leaders are primarily adopting and implementing microsegmentation technologies as part of a larger zero trust architecture initiative in order to stop lateral movement in hybrid environments. SRM leaders should be able to progressively scale by choosing which workloads to prioritize, in stages while conservatively defining the project plan. There are additional technologies available to aid in a successful microsegmentation implementation, such as:

  • Integration with cloud infrastructure to ease deployment, enforce rules or automate policy updates when new assets are deployed

  • Threat detection: based on threat intelligence, layer seven protocol inspection and anomaly detection

  • Asset discovery: adjacent to the flow mapping, microsegmentation tools can show more advanced context for the assets
