Throughout the year, iboss’ global employee headcount grew 78% and hiring is expected to continuein 2018 across all departments and locations.

This has led to a new home in Boston, new customers, and many new members of the iboss team,” said Paul Martini, iboss CEO and co-founder. “Looking ahead to 2018, expect more great things from iboss as we continue to shift users off of legacy perimeter-based gateway appliance solutions to user-based Internet security in the cloud.”
