In 3 bullets, summarize why this company 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.

Overview

The iboss cloud changes the way cloud security is delivered, allowing organizations to migrate from traditional network security appliances to security delivered in the cloud. With mobility, 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 platform is critical to ensure fast and secure connections to cloud applications and enable cloud adoption in a secure and scalable way. The iboss cloud secures user Internet access on any device, from any location, in the cloud making the cloud-first future a reality

The traditional method of securing users and devices traditionally 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 mobility, cloud application use and exponential bandwidth increase. The network security vendors in the space are very mature and have been slow to change due to large profits of offering hardware refreshes every 3-5 years.

iboss focused on creating a cloud security platform that provides a roadmap that is sustainable for decades into the future. The focus was on delivering security in the cloud, directly where the applications live. This ensures user connectivity is fast and secure, regardless of where users work, including inside and outside of the traditional network perimeter. Without fast and secure cloud connections, cloud growth and transformation would not be possible. Organizations can apply the security they require, directly in the cloud, and not worry about infrastructure, bandwidth growth, or mobility as the iboss platform delivers security as a service and abstracts all of the complexities typically required.
