BOSTON, Jan. 12, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- iboss, the leader in cloud delivered network security, announces that Cybercrime Magazine has named the company to its annual list of top cybersecurity companies. The new "Hot 150 Cybersecurity Companies To Watch In 2021" list honors the most innovative companies in the cybersecurity market.
The recognition comes amid a period of rapid growth for iboss, which recently announced $145 million in new funding to support the continued adoption of its cloud-based network security solutions, including its cutting-edge Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) model. By delivering iboss's best-in-class security features and policies — such as web gateway proxies, network firewalls and Zero Trust Network Access — directly through the cloud, the company's SASE solution is built for the modern workforce, securing user internet access on any device, from any location.
The company's expansion has been accelerated by the ongoing shift to cloud-based cybersecurity providers as organizations increasingly rely on distributed and dispersed workforces due to the COVID-19 pandemic. To help meet the increased demand for its best-in-class security solutions, iboss recently appointed former Forescout executive Matt Hartley as Chief Revenue Officer and May Mitchell, previously of Cylance and Symantec, as Senior Vice President of Marketing.
"Having our name alongside so many esteemed industry organizations gives us great pride," said Paul Martini, iboss co-founder and CEO. "The pandemic has accelerated changes to where and how we work and organizations demand fast and secure connections to the cloud applications such as Microsoft 365 and Zoom to stay productive. Our cloud-native SASE model ensures safety and productivity no matter where employees are located and as a result, organizations of all sizes — from Fortune 5 to midmarket firms — are increasingly turning to us to help them protect their workforces and accelerate their digital business transformation."
