In a tech partnership between e92plus and iboss the two companies will jointly develop cloud-based network security.
“The market has rapidly changed in 2020, and we’ve seen organisations migrate to the cloud in weeks rather than years” said Mukesh Gupta, CEO and Founder of e92plus.
“These rapid changes have emphasised the need for a cloud first approach, and the iboss approach provides an exciting addition to our portfolio, especially their ability for customers to retain control through containers while leveraging the agility and performance benefits of a cloud native platform”.
“The market is embracing a cloud-first approach, and we’re excited to be working with e92plus accelerate cloud adoption and help channel partners simplify cloud-based network security for customers of all sizes. For Zero Trust and SASE models, the iboss platform provides the perfect foundation. This enables users to be the most productive as they work from any location by providing the necessary fast and secure connections to the cloud applications they use every day,” said Paul Martini, iboss Co-founder and CEO. “e92plus will help iboss scale in UK&I as channel partners assist their customers in establishing and executing against a zero-trust strategy and SASE model to support today’s evolving workplace.”
The benefits and potential savings of using iboss have been highlighted in a report this year, produced in partnership with IDC. Key highlights included:
- 37% lower 3-year cost of operations
- 275% 3-year ROI
- 4 months payback period
The report also found that “iboss cloud was light years ahead of what we were using in terms of security functionality. The price factor was also important – when it came to iboss versus the other solutions we considered, iboss was a lot more affordable.” 1
“For our partner community, iboss enables them to help their customers break from free on-premise restrictions and embrace the scale and flexibility of the cloud” explains Mukesh Gupta. “Increasingly customers are looking at alternatives to legacy VPNs or on-premise gateways that require unnecessary data backhaul and additional complexity. The iboss cloud-first approach offers an exciting new approach to cloud security and Zero Trust Network Access, and a vendor that’s highly ranked by leading analysts yet offers fantastic opportunity for growth. The major investment in them validates the huge potential for the company, and why they represent a significant opportunity for partners looking to replace legacy solutions”.
