BlueFort Security adds Zero Trust leader, iboss, to its cyber security specialist portfolio


BlueFort Security, the UK provider of cybersecurity solutions, has signed a partnership agreement with iboss, the Zero Trust Edge cloud security provider.

According to Verizon’s 2021 Data Breach Investigation Report, the use of stolen credentials is the most common threat action when it comes to breaches. As a result demand for  products that support zero trust is on the rise. Research firm Markets and Markets projects that the global zero trust security market will grow from $19.6 billion in 2020 to $51.6 billion by 2026. The major factors driving the market include the growing frequency of target-based cyber attacks and increasing regulations for data protection and information security.

Ian Jennings, co-founder and CEO, Technical & Operations at BlueFort Security said: “The emergence of remote work as the norm for many companies comes with new cybersecurity challenges. Remote working results in less control over an organisation’s resources, which heightens the risk of data breaches. It is, therefore, more important than ever to approach cybersecurity from a risk-based perspective. Zero trust is rooted in the belief that nothing should be trusted, whether it resides within the network or without. The iboss solution, coupled with our unique BlueFort Evolve service wrapper helps us address key target markets perfectly.” 

“We are proud to partner with BlueFort to help organisations across the UK not only meet their security needs, but also prepare for the future,” said Paul Martini, CEO and co-founder, iboss. “With the iboss Zero Trust Edge, organisations can adopt a Zero Trust architecture which protects resources regardless of location, while allowing approved users to access those resources from wherever they work. This greatly reduces an organisation’s cyber risk while increasing their security posture exponentially.”      

iboss enables the modern, distributed workforce to connect securely and directly to all applications from wherever they work. The iboss Zero Trust Edge is a purpose built, patented, cloud delivered security service built on a containerised architecture. This approach enables organisations to move to a Zero Trust Architecture in an orderly, non-disruptive way in full compliance with NIST 800-207 tenets. A Zero Trust Architecture built on iboss consolidates network security technologies (SWG, CASB, DLP, IPS, malware defense, browser isolation, firewall) into a single unified cloud platform and eliminates the need for a VPN while securing any device, regardless of location. iboss shifts the focus from protecting the network perimeter to protecting resources.

iboss will become a core value-add offering within BlueFort Evolve, BlueFort’s client focussed benefits package. Evolve is designed to bolster the resources of BlueFort’s customers’ internal IT teams by providing specialist IT technical and professional services expertise when required.
