iboss reveals Zero Trust SD-WAN for reliable, secure connectivity

Cloud security operator iboss has unveiled its Zero Trust SD-WAN solution, a ground-breaking feature that merges its Zero Trust SSE platform with Zero Trust SD-WAN. This unified platform aims to offer secure, dependable connectivity across organisations, thereby putting an end to reliance on outdated technology such as legacy firewalls and cumbersome VPNs.

The recent increase in distributed workforces has highlighted the inefficiencies of traditional security measures. iboss’s new solution confronts these issues directly, shedding legacy systems that inhibit productivity and instead employing zero trust principles to enhance network management and secure traffic.

Significantly, the Zero Trust SD-WAN has been designed to provide robust security and superior connectivity without the complexities typically associated with legacy SD-WAN solutions. It forms part of the broader iboss package, which integrates a range of plug-and-play appliances, enabling a single, consolidated SASE platform that maintains secure, fast, and efficient connections for a hybrid workforce. By eliminating the need for VPNs, complex routing, and numerous security technologies, iboss not only optimises employee productivity but also significantly curtails organisational costs.

Key aspects of the iboss Zero Trust SD-WAN feature include the elimination of multiple security technologies, offering a streamlined technology environment. Traditional SD-WAN solutions often necessitate the management of various disparate security technologies, but iboss’s integrated approach incorporates FWaaS, SWG, CASB, DLP, RBI and Private Access, negating this need.

Both inbound and outbound traffic are secured using rigorous zero-trust security measures, all within a single solution. Network management is simplified due to the removal of the requirement for complex routing and additional firewalls. Ultimate control is granted via a unified security console that manages policies and reporting across all sites and users. By eliminating slow VPNs and legacy firewalls and consolidating functionalities into a single platform, operational costs and complexity are reduced, making it a cost-effective choice for organisations.

Paul Martini, Chief Executive Officer at iboss, commented on the recent launch: “We are committed to continually advancing our technology to address the evolving needs of today’s dynamic enterprise environments. With the launch of our Zero Trust SD-WAN, we are proud to offer a solution that not only meets the stringent security requirements of our customers but also enhances their overall productivity and reduces operational costs.”

In the modern, distributed work landscape where applications, data, and services have moved to the cloud and are located everywhere, while users needing access to those resources are working from anywhere, transitions like iboss’s are an essential step towards future-friendly, secure business practices. It is clear that the shift has moved from securing physical buildings to protecting people and resources wherever they are located.
