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

*With its patented containerized cloud architecture, only iboss cloud can transition all capabilities found in traditional web gateway proxies and network firewall appliances to the cloud.

*The iboss SASE platform can secure any volume of traffic because it runs in the cloud with infinite resources. This is unlike on-prem security appliances which have limited resources and quickly become saturated with the load from remote workers.

* Exponential bandwidth increases and encrypted connections require enormous processing power, which is limited within any appliance-based network security solution. Network security has no choice but to move to the cloud where the applications run. The cloud has unlimited processing ability to protect any volume of data, and moving security to the cloud sends security to the user, anywhere.

Brief Overview

With increasing bandwidth, encrypted traffic, shifts to cloud applications like Office 365 and users that are no longer constrained to traditional network boundaries, the ability to deliver fast, secure and compliant connections to cloud applications is more difficult than ever before. A Secure Access Service Edge, or SASE platform, ensures that any connection originating from a user or device to any destination in the cloud is secure and meets the organization’s connectivity requirements. However, with financial regulations and security risks associated with SaaS cloud delivered platforms, leveraging a SASE platform for secure connectivity can be a challenge.

The iboss platform is the leading SASE platform that is architecturally based on containerization. Containerization allows iboss to deliver secure connectivity for users anywhere while maintaining a completely isolated and controlled network data path. In addition, a fully containerized architecture allows for natural hybrid deployments where proxy and firewall security features can be delivered within an organization’s private network, while leveraging the cloud based service, if needed, for remote users or branch offices.

Understanding containerization is the key for financial institutions in need of a highly secure SASE service. With a containerized service like iboss, the network connections from devices and users are processed within isolated containerized gateways which perform proxy and firewall functions. The containerized gateways never process data for any other organization and data is never mixed with that of any other customer. Containerized gateways are destroyed and created in seconds providing horizontal scaling and a global SASE fabric.

With alternative SASE platforms that lack containerization, network traffic from multiple organizations are processed within the same gateways that proxy, decrypt and firewall data for other organizations. Mixing data within the gateways that perform functions like decryption not only results in latency but increases security risks.
