In 3 bullets, summarize why this product or service 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

The traditional method of securing users and devices has been with on-prem security appliances, including on-prem firewalls and web proxies. However, the castle and moat strategy of creating a fortress to protect a network perimeter has been completely disrupted due to the shift to remote working from home, cloud application use and exponential bandwidth increase. The iboss cloud eliminates the need to send connections from workers outside the office back through the office by allowing security for those connections to be processed in the cloud. This instantly converts slow connections which result in a poor end-user experience and low productivity to ultrafast direct to cloud connectivity.

The iboss platform is the leading SASE platform that is built on a proprietary containerized architecture designed 100% for the cloud. Containerization allows iboss to deliver secure connectivity for users anywhere while maintaining a completely isolated, 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 the organization’s network, while leveraging the cloud based service, if needed, for remote users. 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.

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. An additional feature of the iboss platform is that each customer gets dedicated source cloud IP Addresses which are associated with the organization.
