- Top Software Company of 2021
Based in Boston, iboss is an innovative cloud security company that securely connects individuals and organizations to any device or application from anywhere in the world with its Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) platform. SASE technology provides its clients with a streamlined and simplified cloud-based network and security connection that bypasses traditional enterprise data centers. Founded by twin brothers Paul and Peter Martini, iboss currently boasts a post-money valuation between $500 million and $1 billion and is a rare example of a profitable bootstrapped cybersecurity business.
iboss is a cloud-based platform with a focus on following users instead of perimeters to ensure that Internet access is always secure regardless of user location. Because users are always connected to the iboss cloud platform, their access to the internet and all their files is always protected. The company’s unique architecture is powered by digital containerization, allowing its customers’ data to be processed separately from other customers’ data processes. The results include higher security and greater horizontal scalability.
In January 2021, iboss raised $145 million in growth capital in a newly-closed funding round, providing the company with additional assets to continue improving its cybersecurity capabilities.
