From 3 B.C.
As far back as 3 B.C. (Before Cloud), Paul and Peter Martini were thinking about how to protect users from cybercrime in a rapidly evolving technology landscape. The ceaseless advances of smartphones coupled with higher bandwidth networks and wireless access enabled users worldwide to work from the road and save to the cloud. It also offered cybercriminals an even larger attack surface to target.
More Computing, More Crime
With increases in computing and bandwidth, cybercrime graduated from annoying web pop-ups to much more sophisticated forms of malware designed to penetrate networks and exit with intellectual property. The enemy of IT was no longer failing hardware or software but, rather, intelligent and dedicated humans seeking to do harm.
Moving to the Cloud
While targeted users were becoming untethered, corporate applications were also moving to the cloud. More and more solutions such as sales force automation (SFA), customer relations management (CRM), and enterprise resource planning (ERP), were being offered as a cloud-based software service. Noting that the fundamental landscape of computing was radically changing, iboss set out to deliver a cloud security solution that could scale with its customers and meet the challenges of the constantly evolving cybercrime battlefield.
Fast-Forward to the Cloud Era
Fifteen years, 4,000 customers, millions of users, and hundreds of granted patents later, iboss has delivered the industry's only true distributed and containerized cloud security solution. iboss has taken all the features traditionally found in a Secure Web Gateway and has delivered these capabilities as a subscription service in dedicated software containers.
Security Designed for the Cloud in the Cloud
As users and mission-critical applications move to the cloud, it only makes sense that security must follow. Now, with the click of a mouse, customers can receive URL filtering, malware defense, antivirus protection, and data loss prevention, no matter where they are or what phone, laptop, or tablet they use.
Increased Security – Reduced Costs
Imagine the ability to set, manage, and enforce global policies for all users and devices with the click of a mouse. Imagine maintaining your corporate identity and IP addresses by using dedicated containerized gateways. Imagine being able to implement the latest security defenses without the need for a hardware refresh. When you manage security from the iboss cloud, all your traffic, endpoints, and users are under your control and vigilant protection.
