iboss continues to be recognized for security excellence and industry-leading innovation. iboss has built the largest global SASE cybersecurity cloud footprint, allowing organizations to provide fast, direct and secure connections. iboss helps customers achieve a modern security architecture by eliminating the need for traditional network security appliances, such as firewalls and web gateway proxies, which are ineffective at protecting a cloud-first and mobile world.
The iboss cloud platform secures over 150 billion requests a day, ensuring users can access cloud resources while preventing phishing, malware and data loss. Additionally, iboss is leveraged by the largest organizations in the world across all verticals to ensure uninterrupted secure access to all business applications while users work from home. This has alleviated the burden on IT staff that have been greatly impacted by COVID-19 and have had to protect users that are not bound to the office.
“It is an honor to be recognized as an Infosec innovator and leader in the industry, especially at a time where secure cloud connectivity is a critical part of everyday life,” said Paul Martini, iboss CEO. “This award is a testament to our proprietary technology and leading SASE platform that enables users to connect quickly and securely to any cloud destination, from anywhere. As enterprises look for ways to optimize their network and security infrastructure for the modern, remote workforce, iboss provides the perfect foundation for this cloud transformation.”
The Cyber Defense Global Infosec Awards honors the most innovative and valuable cyber defense companies from around the globe. Cyber Defense Magazine (CDM) has spent the past six months scouring the globe and found 3,200 companies that create and offer the most respected information security products and services. CDM has named nearly 15% of these companies as winners in the coveted Global InfoSec Award for 2021 because of their innovations and focus on attempting to stop tomorrow’s breach, today.
“In a post-COVID world where SaaS, Cloud Computing and the dramatic increase in working from home on computers with less manageable poor hygiene, there’s been an exponential growth in new kinds of ransomware, phishing attacks, cyber crime and cyber terrorism. Only the most innovative and forward thinking cybersecurity solutions will give us a fighting chance,” said Yan Ross, US Editor of Cyber Defense Magazine.
“These winners are the most innovative, forward thinking and proactive cyber security companies and service providers on the planet who are working to bring tomorrow’s cybersecurity solutions to market, today,” said Gary S. Miliefsky, Publisher of Cyber Defense Magazine.
