iboss, a cloud security company that provides organizations and their employees fast and secure access to the internet on any device, from any location, in the cloud, who took home the Gold in the 2021 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards Program, is pleased to announce it’s iboss Zero Trust Edge Cloud Security Platform has been nominated in the 2022 ‘ASTORS’ Awards Program.
Zero Trust is now mandated to be implemented by two U.S. federal government executive orders for the government and references the NIST SP 800-207 as a guideline for these initiatives.
The iboss Zero Trust Edge is a pure implementation of the NIST Zero Trust Architecture defined in the NIST 800-207 publication.
The world has radically changed in the way people and things are connected. People are working from everywhere, but the resources and applications they need to do their work have moved to ‘everywhere’ as well.
The applications and data are the critical resources that need to be protected from data loss, and destruction, and must be accessible when needed.
Zero Trust allows organizations to protect their resources, including applications, data, and services, by ensuring access to those applications is only possible through a security service edge.
The iboss cloud is a Zero Trust platform that sits in front of all resources and only allows approved users to connect to those resources, ensuring that no application, data, or service is directly accessible and protects organizations from data loss and breaches.
(Hybrid and working from home has brought challenges to organizations as they adapt to remote work. The limitations and complexity of data backhauling requires many organizations to apply different and often weaker security standards to remote users, leaving them exposed to malware. The solution? The iboss cloud platform can perform any security function that a network firewall or web proxy appliance can perform, without the appliances. The future of network security is here, and it is in the cloud. The iboss cloud provides fast and secure Internet access on any device, from any location, in the cloud.

The iboss platform also makes it possible for users to access applications and resources from wherever they work and wherever the resource is located.
This makes access to information seamless and transparent to end-users while ensuring an organization gets the visibility and protection required to ensure they are reducing risk and increasing their security posture.
The transition to Zero Trust allows organizations to move from perimeter-based security, or a castle-and-moat security strategy where protection is centered around buildings, to a world where security is baked into each and every connection to every resource being accessed by those who need it.
iboss enables the modern workforce by securely connecting them to the resources they need with fast connections. Unlike competing solutions, iboss provides a single unified service edge to secure resources no matter where they are located.
Built on our own global fabric, our unique containerized architecture provides each customer with their own source IP space, minimizing the size of the implicit trust zone in full compliance with NIST Zero Trust requirements.
The iboss Zero Trust Edge provides the ability to implement the NIST 800-207 Zero Trust Architecture Special Publication easily and in a straightforward manner.
This transition not only reduces cyber risk and improves the enterprise’s security posture, but also changes the way users gain access to protected resources.
In legacy models, users are required to enable and disable VPNs to gain access to resources that are located on-prem.
With Zero Trust, users are simply connected to the iboss Zero Trust Edge, which automatically gives them access to authorized and approved resources, regardless of whether the user is on-prem or in the cloud.
The location of the resource is abstracted from the user making the end-user experience better.
Transforming to a Zero Trust model also ensures there is no east-west traffic movement and that all resources are completely invisible and inaccessible by attackers.
The Policy Enforcement Points are the only gateway to the protected resource, regardless of whether the resource is in the cloud or on-prem, and will deny access by default while only authorizing approved subjects that meet a high level of confidence that need access to a resource.
The journey will revolutionize the way organizations think about protecting resources that are located everywhere while allowing users and assets to connect to those resources from anywhere.
