Goldman Sachs Honors iboss Founders as one of the 100 Most Intriguing Entrepreneurs
SAN DIEGO, CA October 21, 2014 – Goldman Sachs has named iboss founders, Paul and Peter Martini, among the 100 Most Intriguing Entrepreneurs of 2014. Announced at the Builders + Innovators Summit in Santa Barbara, California, the prestigious list recognizes founders that are paving the way in innovation and leadership across multiple industries.
“We felt that the cybersecurity industry was in desperate need of disruption,” said Paul Martini, CEO. “We are honored by this recognition and feel it’s a reflection of the dedication of our team to deliver the most advanced security solutions in the industry.
With a successful background in computer and software engineering, Paul and Peter Martini pioneered the iboss cloud platform which shifts the focus from following perimeters to following users to ensure consistent Internet security is applied to user connections regardless of location. Legacy perimeter-based on-prem appliances were designed to secure buildings, not users on the move. With applications moving to the cloud and users accessing those applications from anywhere, a cloud-based Internet security strategy is mandatory for organizations to survive in a cloud-based future.
“Mobility and cloud adoption continues to be top of mind across all organizations,” continued Martini. “Our focus is in securing access to Internet and those applications in the cloud.”
For more than 140 years, Goldman Sachs has been advising and financing entrepreneurs as they launch and grow their businesses. The annual Builders + Innovators Summit brings together emerging and seasoned entrepreneurs that have reshaped their industries through innovation.
