Iboss: Leading Innovation in Cloud Security

Cyberattacks are among the biggest concerns for businesses across the world. Growing in complexity and frequency, they have the potential to cause unprecedented damage and disruption. 

From ransomware attacks and data breaches to major IT outages, modern cyber threats can threaten the very foundation of modern organisations -  more so than supply chain disruption or natural disasters. According to a Forbes article published earlier this year, cybercriminals can penetrate 93% of company networks. 

A study, conducted by Positive Technologies, concluded that an external attacker could breach an organisation’s network perimeter and gain access to local network resources in 93% of cases. The study involved industries spanning financial services, fuel and energy, government bodies, industrial businesses, IT companies, and more. 

Quite the wake-up call. 

Cybersecurity risks must be a key consideration for organisations across the world. It’s no longer a matter of “if” a cyberattack will occur, but when. Organisations need to be proactive in protecting themselves against breaches, ideally by isolating sensitive applications and data so they’re only visible - and accessible - to trusted users. 

The problem? 

The pandemic catapulted us into a ‘new normal’ of remote working. Increasingly, workers are connecting from everywhere and anywhere, which can compromise the security of sensitive apps and data. It’s vital that organisations allow trusted users, and only trusted users, direct connections to necessary resources. Many businesses, however, are yet to implement appropriate cybersecurity measures to keep up with this new way of working. 

What’s needed is a thorough, effective ‘Zero Trust’ approach. As outlined by NIST, Zero Trust (ZT) is the term to describe “an evolving set of cybersecurity paradigms that move defences from static, network-based perimeters to focus on users, assets and resources.”

In other words, Zero Trust assumes there is no automatic trust granted to assets or users based solely on their physical or network location or based on asset ownership. Authentication and authorisation of both the user and device are required before permission is granted. This approach is a direct response to enterprise network trends that include remote users, bring your own device (BYOD), and cloud-based assets that aren’t located within an enterprise-owned network boundary. 

Our recommendation: iboss 

Iboss is purpose-built for Zero Trust to protect organisations against breaches and data loss. It makes applications, data, and services inaccessible to attackers while allowing trusted users to securely connect to protected resources from anywhere. 

The platform is built on a ‘containerised’ cloud architecture, making it the only platform that can control what the NIST dubs the “Implicit Trust Zone”. This verifies all resources - including those on-premises or in the cloud - are totally private and only accessible through the service. As a result, applications, data, and services are protected and inaccessible without going through the iboss Zero Trust Edge. 

The lowdown… 

  • The iboss Cloud Platform secures 150B+ transactions per day 
  • One of the biggest SASE platforms with over 100+ Points of Presence
  • 4B+ security threats prevented daily 
  • 150+ countries connected
