iboss, the leader in cloud delivered network security, today announced it is the recipient of a coveted Platinum 2020 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Award from American Security Today for Best Network Security Solution.

The Annual ‘ASTORS’ Awards, now in its fifth year, is the preeminent U.S. Homeland Security Awards Program, highlighting the most cutting-edge and forward-thinking security solutions coming onto the market today.

“2020 has been a very challenging year for everyone due to the COVID-19 pandemic however, the 2020 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards Program was again a huge success and many new categories were added including a section for COVID-19 Detection and Innovation,” said Michael Madsen, co-founder and publisher of American Security Today.

The program is specifically designed to honor distinguished government and vendor solutions that deliver enhanced value, benefit and intelligence to end users in a variety of government, homeland security, enterprise, and public safety vertical markets.

90% of ‘ASTORS’ Award Winners return to compete in the Annual ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards Program, and 100% of ‘ASTORS’ Sponsors have returned year to year to reap the benefits of their participation in the industry’s largest and most comprehensive Annual Awards Program.

As the nation continues to respond to escalating threats from home and abroad, the innovative solutions being implemented to meet those threats, has led to tremendous growth in the field of Homeland Security.

“Today, the United States is increasingly focusing on protecting public spaces, as well as IT/cyber security networks and they are calling on innovative companies like iboss to help them do so,” according to Tammy Waitt, co-founder and editorial director of American Security Today.

“‘ASTORS’ nominations are evaluated on their technical innovation, interoperability, specific impact within the category, overall impact to the industry, relatability to other industry technologies, and application feasibility outside of the industry,” concluded Waitt.

As the most advanced SASE and Zero Trust platform, iboss was selected for its patented, containerized cloud architecture that is transforming the network security market. iboss’s containerized architecture ensures a smoother and more seamless transition to the cloud than any other security vendor on the market. This foundation allows 100% of any network security feature to transition easily from hosted network security appliances to SaaS based Internet security delivered in the cloud. In addition, containerization allows iboss to deliver secure connectivity for users anywhere while maintaining a completely isolated and controlled network data path. Additionally, a fully containerized architecture allows for natural hybrid deployments where proxy and firewall security features can be delivered within the organization’s network, while leveraging the cloud based service, if needed, for remote users.

Understanding containerization is the key for networks in need of a highly secure service, especially government entities and those related to Homeland Security. With a containerized service like iboss, the network connections from devices and users are processed within isolated containerized gateways which perform proxy and firewall functions. The containerized gateways never process data for any other organization and data is never mixed with that of any other customer. Mixing data within the gateways that perform functions like decryption not only results in latency but also increases security risks.

“We are honored to be recognized for our innovative cloud network security platform in American Security Today’s distinguished 2020 ‘ASTORS’ Awards Program,” said Paul Martini, iboss CEO and Co-founder. “This award is an affirmation of iboss as the leader in SASE cloud security. As a trusted partner to government organizations across the globe, iboss allows users to work from anywhere and connect to any cloud application, public or private. iboss provides service-based access to any resource easily and transparently, providing major advantages for government agencies which are running comply to connect initiatives.”
