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

• With network perimeters disappearing, the need to secure users wherever they roam is critical. iboss cloud lives in the cloud and can secure users regardless of location.
• With applications moving to the cloud, the need to access those applications securely from anywhere is critical. iboss follows users to ensure they have secure connections at all times and can access cloud applications with high speeds.
• Bandwidth and encrypted traffic is increasing, causing enormous strain on traditional network security appliances. iboss can inspect and secure any volume of traffic while eliminating infrastructure, resulting in savings and reducing IT strain from managing appliances.

Brief Overview

The iboss cloud secures user Internet access on any device, from any location, in the cloud. iboss cloud shifts the focus from following perimeters to following users so that consistent cloud security is applied while users are in the office or on the road.

The network perimeter has eroded, making traditional gateway security appliances ineffective at securing users who are no longer bound by network boundaries. Built on a proprietary containerized architecture designed 100% for the cloud, iboss cloud secures user Internet access from anywhere, including in and out of your physical network perimeter. Users are always connected to iboss cloud, regardless of device or location, to ensure all Internet traffic is secured for compliance, web filtering, malware defense and data loss at all times. Since iboss cloud lives in the cloud, security goes where users go with elastic and instant scaling to meet the demands of the cloud-first future.

Competitors in the space have relied heavily on delivering security appliances to secure connections. The appliances are sticky and make it hard for legacy vendors to leave “hardware refresh” revenue behind. Their strategy involves shipping bigger and faster appliances to deal with the increasing bandwidth demands and encrypted traffic volume. Their answer to mobility is not strong, and involves sending data from remote users to on-prem hosted network security appliances which makes for a poor user experience as slow connections and over-burdened appliances fail to keep up with cloud application consumption.

The iboss cloud is delivered in the cloud as a SaaS offering. It follows users wherever they go. Since users and applications are always connected to iboss cloud, connections are always secured from malware and data loss. Connections are also fast as the service automatically scales, in the cloud, as bandwidth demands increase exponentially.
