iboss secures Internet access on any device, from any location, in the cloud for over 4,000 organizations worldwide. In today's mobile world, it is essential for organizations to migrate their network security to the cloud.

Since iboss cloud lives in the cloud, network security goes where users go with elastic and instant scaling to meet the demands of the cloud-first future.
The iboss cloud platform has helped organizations optimize their security costs by avoiding the need to purchase hardware appliances, reducing bandwidth requirements as network traffic no longer needs to be backhauled to headquarters, and making IT security teams more efficient and effective. The iboss cloud platform provides network security as a service, delivered in the cloud as a complete SaaS offering. This ensures consistent network security is applied regardless of device location and allows organizations to implement strategies such as Gartner's SASE model with ease.
