BOSTON (PRWEB) July 20, 2021
iboss, the leading Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) cloud security provider, today announced that it closed the second quarter of 2021 with record growth. Since raising $145M in early January to propel the company’s go-to-market efforts, iboss’ momentum has continued to exponentially accelerate. New business bookings increased 110% in comparison to the second quarter of 2020, driven by several industry-leading product announcements, industry accolades and executive new hires.
Over the last quarter, iboss launched an industry-first unlimited SASE cloud offering, was named a Customers’ Choice for Secure Web Gateways in North America in Gartner Peer Insights Voice of the Customer, welcomed new executive hires to support GTM efforts and continued adoption and expansion from large F1000 customers, including one of the top Payroll/HR online enterprises. This exceptional and sustained growth is largely attributed to organizations rethinking their network and security needs to better support remote and hybrid workforces.
“The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way people work, likely forever. The future of work is remote,” said Paul Martini, CEO of iboss. “On-premises network security appliances can’t support today’s new ‘work from anywhere’ world. With the unprecedented rash of ransomware and other types of professional and nation-state sponsored cyberattacks, organizations can’t afford to risk user connectivity or security, which is why there’s been a seismic shift to cloud-based SASE platforms to help support remote workforces. The iboss Cloud Platform is purpose-built to help organizations ensure users can quickly and securely connect to any application they need, regardless of location – and all in the cloud.”
