iboss is now a certified partner in the Microsoft 365 Networking Partner Program (NPP). The Microsoft 365 NPP offers customers a set of partners whose networking requirements and best practices align with Microsoft’s key principles for optimal Microsoft 365 connectivity. iboss allows all users to connect to Microsoft 365 via the iboss Zero Trust SASE platform and provides direct connectivity to secure Microsoft 365 connections.
Microsoft’s 365 suite provides organizations with a substantial set of productivity tools based in the cloud. With more than 200 million users, these tools must be accessible from anywhere and from any device. Since the COVID-19 pandemic, organizations quickly shifted from an office-based workforce to one that is largely remote. Even today, many organizations still have remote or hybrid workforces, making it essential to have fast and secure connections to the Microsoft 365 suite. Additionally, organizations need visibility and security controls that include CASB and DLP for users accessing the Microsoft suite to ensure data privacy and compliance.
iboss went through rigorous testing to qualify as a Microsoft 365 Networking Partner. This included ensuring the iboss Cloud Platform offered seamless integrations and demonstrated a high-quality networking experience when used with Microsoft 365. Since the iboss SASE platform is natively integrated with Microsoft 365, users can quickly and securely connect to the Microsoft 365 suite, from anywhere. Additionally, the iboss platform can provide one-click Network Security as a Service for anything connected to Azure. This provides the best visibility and control over cloud use and minimizes the amount of time to capture value in these investments.
With iboss, organizations have the security controls and visibility over all users accessing the Microsoft 365 suite. This includes iboss cloud CASB that is fully and natively integrated with Microsoft Cloud App Security to seamlessly protect cloud application access and provide advanced CASB and DLP capabilities. Controls within the iboss cloud prevents the use of unsanctioned applications by automatically syncing policies and signatures from MCAS and provides the ability to enforce Microsoft tenant restrictions to ensure users are restricted to the organization’s Microsoft tenant. Since all user traffic goes through the iboss cloud, this ensures data can’t be moved to personal accounts.
iboss Cloud Platform is built on a proprietary containerized architecture designed 100% for the cloud, users are always connected to the iboss cloud, regardless of device or location. iboss ensures all Internet traffic is secured for compliance, web filtering, malware defense and data loss always. Since the iboss platform lives in the cloud, network security goes where users go with elastic and instant scaling to meet the demands of the cloud-first future.
