In 3 bullets, summarize why this product or service is different from the competition and deserves recognition:

* With remote workers, cloud application use and bandwidth use exponentially increasing by the day, using traditional means to secure cloud connectivity with appliances is ineffective as the traditional network perimeter has eroded. The iboss cloud platform allows organizations to offload network data generated by remote workers by protecting those connections to cloud applications directly in the cloud.

* The iboss platform is critical to ensure fast and secure connections to cloud applications reducing infrastructure costs and vastly improving network speeds to all cloud resources for remote workers. The iboss cloud secures user Internet access on any device, from any location, in the cloud making the cloud-first future a reality. 

*The iboss cloud runs as a complete SaaS offering in the cloud. It has infinite computing power to decrypt any volume of traffic. As encrypted traffic increases, your costs do not as iboss will process, decrypt and inspect all traffic automatically. This includes the large volumes of traffic from remote work from home users.

Brief Overview

iboss provides cloud-based SaaS network security for organizations to allow users to connect to cloud applications from anywhere, quickly and securely. Fast and secure connections are the backbone of any cloud transformation as all cloud applications require fast connections. With everyone working remotely and outside of the office, iboss allows direct connections to all cloud applications without sending data back through the office for security. The iboss platform is known as a Secure Access Service Edge, or SASE, because it provides all of the cybersecurity functions needed to ensure users remain secure as they access the resources they need in the cloud, from anywhere.

In order to provide access to private resources, connections must flow through the iboss cloud platform. Connections are routed through the iboss cloud platform using an agent, which transparently intercepts network traffic and re-routes it through the iboss cloud platform before heading to the final cloud destination.

iboss has built the largest SASE cybersecurity cloud footprint in the world allowing organizations to provide fast, direct and secure connections to applications for users working from any location. The platform secures over 100B requests a day ensuring users can access cloud resources while preventing phishing, malware and data loss. Additionally, the iboss platform is leveraged by the largest organizations in the world across all verticals to ensure uninterrupted secure access to all business applications while users work from home. This has alleviated the burden on IT staff that have been greatly impacted by COVID19 and have had to protect users that are not bound to the office.
