BOSTON (PRWEB) August 28, 2020
iboss, the leader in cloud delivered network security, announced today that Network Products Guide, the industry’s leading technology research and advisory guide, has named iboss an award winner in three categories in the 15th Annual 2020 Network PG’s IT World Awards®. iboss received two Gold awards for Hot Company of the Year Security Cloud/SaaS and Secure Web Gateways, in addition to earning the Bronze award for Cloud Security.
The IT World Awards are industry and peer recognitions from Network Products Guide honoring achievements of world’s best in organizational performance, product and service innovations, hot technologies, executives and management teams, successful deployments, product management and engineering, customer satisfaction, and public relations in information technology and cyber security.
Judges from a broad spectrum of industry voices from around the world participated and their average scores determined the 2020 award winners. Winners will be celebrated and presented their awards during a virtual awards ceremony in November.
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 remote workers, 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 cloud platform allows organizations to offload network data generated by remote workers by protecting those connections to cloud applications directly in the cloud. This network data is typically backhauled through VPNs to the corporate network which results in overwhelmed infrastructure and bottlenecked throughput leading to massive productivity loss as remote workers rely on fast connections to meeting apps and online applications. The iboss platform is critical to ensure fast and secure connections to cloud applications reducing infrastructure costs and vastly improving network speeds to all cloud resources for remote workers. The iboss cloud secures user Internet access on any device, from any location, in the cloud making the cloud-first future a reality.
“We are honored to be named a winner by IT World Awards for this esteemed industry and peer recognition,” said Paul Martini, iboss Co-founder and CEO. “Cloud-based network security is now mandatory for every organization due to every worker becoming remote almost overnight. By transitioning network security to a SaaS based, cloud delivered service, remote workers can work without limitations and organizations can benefit immediately by eliminating overloaded company networks and reducing complaints about slow connections from the remote work force.”
