Secure Access Service Edge


SaaS Network Security, Delivered in the Cloud

Market Evolution
The Future of Network Security is in the Cloud

Evolution Of Network Security

Past: Consolidation of Perimeter into Firewall

  • Reduced number of physical egress points, resulting in fewer appliance deployment opportunities ​
  • Led to creation of next-gen-firewalls (NGFW) with integrated IDS / IPS, malware protection, advanced threat protection, URL filtering, content blocking, etc.​

Industry impact

  • Industry incumbents attacked market with robust NGFW offerings

Present: Shift of Perimeter to the Cloud

  • Movement away from traditional perimeters due to increasing adoption of cloud-based / hybrid cloud architectures 
  • Transformational infrastructure shift leading to exponential increase in bandwidth of encrypted traffic
  • $20B+ appliance market(1) presents massive opportunity for disruption from the cloud

Industry impact

  • Rise of cloud-first entrants​
  • Leading security vendors making notable strategic acquisitions to capitalize on cloud movement​

Future: Shift Inspection Engines to the Cloud

  • Digital business requires access to applications and services from anywhere, at anytime
  • More users, devices, applications, services and data located outside of an enterprise than inside
  • Complexity, latency and the need to decrypt and inspect encrypted traffic increases demand for consolidation of networking and security-as-a-service capabilities into a cloud-delivered Secure Access Service Edge (“SASE”)
  • Need for a worldwide fabric / mesh of network & network security capabilities

Industry impact

  • iboss enables the most comprehensive, unified implementation of SASE in the market today
  • Competitors will need to either internally develop or acquire to fill significant gaps in their portfolio to enable a true SASE architecture​

Network Paradigm Shift IBOSSIs “Ahead Of The Curve”

  1. Users Go Mobile
    Desktops change to laptops and users are no longer in the network perimeter.
  2. Encrypted Traffic
    Unencrypted traffic shifts to encrypted HTTPS traffic due to mobility.
  3. Cloud Applications and Files
    Applications move from servers to SaaS, and data & files move to online storage & access.
  4. Bandwidth Explosion
    Increased bandwidth usage due to remote users accessing remote cloud data needed for productivity.
  5. Security Moves to Cloud
    Data Center network security moves to the cloud where the users, applications, and data live.

Secure Access Service Edge (SASE)
The Convergence and Inversion of Network & Security Architectures

Enterprise demand for SASE capabilities in a cloud-based platform, will redefine enterprise network and network security architectures, ultimately reshaping the competitive landscape.

According to Gartner® by 2025, at least 60% of enterprises will have explicit strategies and timelines for SASE adoption encompassing user, branch and edge access, up from 10% in 2020.*
