Cyxtera: A Strong Performer in The Forrester Wave Zero Trust eXtended Ecosystem Providers

Cyxtera is proud to be named by Forrester Research a Strong Performer in “The Forrester Wave™: Zero Trust eXtended Ecosystem Providers, Q4 2018.


Forrester introduced Zero Trust to address the need to segment and secure network access across locations and hosting models and eliminate inherent trust assumptions. These capabilities are an increasing priority for companies today who must lower their risk without impeding business operations. According to Forrester:

 This market is growing because more security leaders see Zero Trust as a way to address their top challenges. Growth is in large part due to security pros increasingly relying on vendors to act as both technical integrator and long-term partner for planning and actualizing the architectural recommendations of the Zero Trust eXtended ecosystem framework.”

The Forrester Wave™: Zero Trust eXtended Ecosystem Providers, Q4 2018 provides a detailed analysis of the ecosystem, urging security professionals to adopt “Zero Trust as a way to address their top challenges.”

Cyxtera received the highest possible scores in the workload security and ZTX vision and strategy criteria.

Forrester said:

“[Cyxtera] has a strong capability set for enabling cloud workload security and application isolation and security. This solution set is directly related to the ZTX workloads area, and Cyxtera excels in this regard.”

A Zero Trust approach is essential for organizations to effectively defend against the epidemic of over-entitled network access. Our flagship enterprise security platform, AppGate SDP, delivers by helping organizations dramatically reduce their attack surface and provide intelligent, adaptive access controls built for today's hybrid IT environments. We’re proud that Cyxtera is named a strong performer in the Wave report, a validation, in our opinion, of our Zero Trust vision and commitment to helping organizations build cyber resilience and secure their critical applications and business systems.
