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

- Intuitive UX/UI and Ease-of-Use: Our single-click, highly intuitive interface allows clients to create and set up their networks as well as onboard team members, without requiring any external assistance. Originally coming from a B2C background, we have learned how to design a single-click product for the end-user, ensuring seamless product adoption. Over 40% of our customers are no-touch and completely DIY and can even service small organizations with no CISO or IT manager.

- Network Infrastructure: The competition offers a partial solution to securing the perimeter. We provide a global gateway backbone for deploying security and resources to the edge, and with our Software-Defined Perimeter model, allow easy integration with all local and cloud resources. Customers typically set up their organizations' networks in as little as 15 minutes, and then enjoy total visibility via a thorough variety of segmentation and custom access tools in the cloud. This multi-tenant cloud-based network infrastructure represents the ultimate one-stop shop cyber security platform.

- Pricing and Scalability: Our pricing is extremely competitive and the deployment, scalability, and on-boarding of our product is seamless and fast. As a SaaS solution with no manual configuration or hardware involved, our customers can easily onboard to the platform, deploy their entire network automatically, and scale as they grow. Our cost-effective solution allows clients to “land and expand” by starting off with a minimum of 5 users and growing to an unlimited number of users. Our flexible subscription model is tailored to the number of users, networks and gateways. IT managers can lighten their burden by instantly scaling up a network and onboarding new users, rules, and policies. As opposed to many of our competitors, we operate a global network of over 50 data centers, and are responsible for all maintenance and patching.
