New Releases Allows Cloud-based Access to Security Software
December 07, 2015
iboss Cybersecurity has announced the release of iboss Cloud, a Web-based portal for gaining access to the company’s cloud-based security software.
Previously, businesses had to make use of proprietary software that would provide this access. Now, IT administrators can gain access to network security controls directly through their Web browsers. Paul Martini, the CEO of iboss, commented that many of its clients have asked for Web-based access to their security software. With this development, his company notes, iboss can now claim that it offers cybersecurity 100 percent from the cloud.
There is more to cybersecurity, however, than just access. In fact, it involves more than just basic data protection. iboss has said that it wants to be the most advanced security product on the market. It tries to achieve that goal by providing continuous monitoring of network servers, applications, and files to stop data theft and malware before intrusions become a problem.
The security software works by making note of what behavior is considered normal. It then notes those use cases to determine what is abnormal. Unauthorized attempts to access data, of course, fits the bill as abnormal, so iboss stops such access in its tracks. iboss also allows for the containerization of certain types of data to ensure that businesses remain in line with local, state, and national regulations.
Furthermore, this cloud-based security can scale with businesses as they grow. Just as iboss has grown more than 1800 percent over the past three years, many other startups and established businesses are experiencing similar rates of growth. In order to place itself as a security provider that can stick around for the long haul, iboss will need to show its clients that it can meet their needs no matter how much business they handle.
iboss recently received $35 million in Series A funding – a round that the Goldman Sachs Private Capital Investing group fully supported. This round of funding was meant to help iboss expand its own operation and continue to develop its entire cloud security infrastructure. No doubt it has also helped with the development of the iboss Cloud.
