iboss, an industry leader in Zero Trust Edge, has joined the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association (MISA), an ecosystem of independent software vendors (ISV) and managed security service providers (MSSP) that have integrated their security products and services with Microsoft’s security products. Through this collaboration with Microsoft, customers of both companies benefit from secure, quick access to resources from anywhere, as well as enhanced threat visibility and immediate response.
iboss’s integrations with Microsoft Azure Active Directory, Microsoft Sentinel, Microsoft Defender for Cloud Apps, and Microsoft Purview Information Protection increase the value of Microsoft 365 E5 for an organisation. These solutions provide new features that are fully integrated and straightforward to deploy.
iboss requires modern authentication for all Azure Active Directory (AAD) Umbrella resources, including legacy applications. iboss grants or denies resource access on a per-transaction basis when users authenticate with Azure Active Directory, applying real-time Conditional Access policies to reauthenticate or step-up Multi-factor Authentication with Azure Active Directory.
iboss integration equipped with real-time active defense workflows
iboss integration with Microsoft Sentinel, now available in the Azure Marketplace, integrates high fidelity logs about users and resources being requested, also comes complete with real-time active defense workflows allowing SOC analysts fast automated responses to threats that matter. Deployment is live after only a few mouse clicks. In addition, iboss integration with Microsoft Defender for Cloud Apps extends visibility and protection with advanced CASB capabilities by automatically syncing policies and signatures from Microsoft Defender for Cloud Apps to enforce governance actions for secure cloud application access.
iboss detects and automatically prevents transfer of files tagged with Microsoft Purview Information Protection unified labels and leverages them with iboss Zero Trust DLP rules. In addition, full visibility into the denied transfer request between the user and resource is made available in Microsoft Sentinel to take additional steps as well as Conditional Access rules in Azure Active Directory
iboss service deploys and runs in the cloud
Protection of Azure resource workloads with iboss service being deployed and running directly inside the Azure on a per tenant basis is now available on Microsoft Azure Marketplace. With the ability of iboss service to now be deployed directly in Azure, allows for a customer’s unique IP address to be anchored to each Azure tenant ID, thus creating a tight Zero Trust linkage unmatched by any other Secure Service Edge vendor.
“Our Zero Trust Edge platform enables Microsoft customers, and distributed workforces everywhere, to connect securely and directly to all applications from wherever they work,” said Paul Martini, co-founder and CEO of iboss.
“We help Microsoft customers complete their Zero Trust journey by granting users secure access to critical resources on a per request basis. The depth and breadth of our integrations is unmatched and provides the most use-case protection scenarios. iboss is purpose-built to prevent breaches by shifting the focus from protecting the network perimeter to protecting resources, and we are proud to be expanding to cover Microsoft Security E5 applications through highly differentiated integrations.”
“Preventing unauthorized access to critical resources is essential for Zero Trust.” said Desmond Forbes, General Manager of Business Development at Microsoft. “iboss capabilities ensure that trusted users are able to connect to protected resources from anywhere with advanced integrations across Microsoft’s Identity, Security and Compliance platform to help meet our joint customers’ Zero Trust objectives.”
The iboss Zero Trust platform is a purpose-built, patent-protected, cloud-delivered security solution with more than one hundred global points of presence. A Zero Trust Architecture based on iboss consolidates network security technologies (SWG, CASB, DLP, IPS, malware defence, browser isolation, and firewall) into a single unified cloud platform, eliminating the need for a VPN and securing any device, regardless of its location. iboss eliminates the top three initial ransomware infection vectors identified by the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency by making all applications private (CISA). With applications, data, and services accessible only via the iboss Zero Trust Edge, cyber risk is drastically reduced, breaches and data loss are prevented, and visibility and security are provided uniformly across an organisation.
