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

* Regardless of how the private resource is connected to the iboss cloud service, its horizontal scaling capability provided by the native containerized architecture means any volume of remote traffic can be handled with ease.

*The iboss cloud platform provides the connection between users and trusted applications based on user identity. Because users connect through the iboss SASE service based on their identity and role, iboss can dynamically grant or deny access to resources in the cloud placing that user on the front door of the application. The iboss platform is a core building block of a Zero Trust strategy.

*The iboss private access service goes beyond micro network segmentation, by eliminating network access altogether. In addition, the service eliminates “east-west” traffic on a private network as end users are never on the network eliminating east-west traffic altogether.

Brief Overview

The iboss private access service inverts the VPN model completely. Instead of granting a user access to a private network, iboss ZTNA service never places the user on any private network at all. Instead, the iboss private access service provides the user with access to the application itself, without ever granting or connecting the user directly to the network from which that application is being hosted. In fact, you can think of iboss private access as Zero Network Access, as the user never actually has access to the network itself. The iboss private access service is connected to all private resources an organization needs to grant access to and leverages this to connect users, based on their role, to the private application directly.

Users are connected through the iboss cloud service at all times, and the iboss cloud service has access to all public and private resources. It grants access to those resources based on role, and abstracts network routing and other network related complexities from the policies which grant access to those resources. It uses an Identity Provider, or IdP, to determine who the user is and which groups the user belongs to in order to provide access. For example, if the user is part of the manager’s group, they may have access to private resources only available to managers.

The iboss cloud platform provides access to any resource, treating the user and device as the new network perimeter. With private access, this includes easily bridging users to private resources that typically would involve placing remote users on private networks which introduces major risk given those users are remote. The iboss cloud platform provides service-based access to any resource easily and transparently and is designed for the cloud-first borderless future.
