iboss Cloud Earns Virus Bulletin VB Web Award for its Ability to Defend Against Advanced Web Threats
iboss cloud is the first cloud-based Internet security solution tested by Virus Bulletin and Wins VB Web Award
BOSTON, Mass., March 21, 2019 iboss today announced that Virus Bulletin completed extensive testing of the iboss cloud platform earning the VB Web Award for its high performance. This is the first time that a cloud-based product was included in the VBWeb test. The test results showed that 100% of all exploit kits and cryptocurrency miners were blocked successfully.
“Virus Bulletin does not express a view as to whether it is better to use a cloud-based or a locally hosted solution, but when it comes to performance, customers should not expect any difference. We were thus pleased to see the product blocks 100% of all exploit kits,” said the Virus Bulletin Report.
In addition, cloud-based tests were offered an easier grading scale but iboss cloud did not need it. As stated in the report, “…in the case of the particular cloud-based product included in this test, all exploit kits were blocked, meaning that the weighting would not have made a difference.” This re-enforces the fact that iboss cloud delivers the same level of performance and protection as on-prem solutions. The iboss cloud follows users wherever they go ensuring secure access to cloud applications at all times. The iboss cloud is delivered in the cloud via a SaaS offering making it easy to secure users in a world with dissolving network perimeters.
“We are pleased to receive the VB Web Award from Virus Bulletin that re-affirms our ability to migrate 100% of the features, capabilities and protection traditionally found in on-prem security solutions to the cloud,” said Paul Martini, CEO and co-founder of iboss. “The traditional network perimeter is dissolving and users are connected to the cloud at all times. The ability to ensure fast and secure access to the cloud for users wherever they go is vital for the cloud-first future.”
iboss is a cloud security company that provides organizations and their employees secure access to the Internet on any device, from any location, in the cloud. This eliminates the need for traditional security appliances, which are ineffective at protecting a cloud-first and mobile world. Leveraging a purpose-built cloud architecture backed by over 100 patents and over 100 points of presence globally, iboss protects more than 4,000 organizations worldwide.
