Emt Distribution Unveils Iboss Zero Trust Edge Cloud Platform In MEA

iBoss & emt CEOs

Cybersecurity specialist, Emt Distribution recently announced signing the Middle East and Africa distribution agreement with iboss, the leading Zero Trust Edge cloud security provider.

According to industry sources, Emt Distribution stated that the broader scale digital transformation has changed the way we navigate the business. Organizations are adopting more cloud technologies than ever before, calling for a re-evaluation of existing cyber security strategies. With the advent of remote work, users are no longer located within the four walls of the office, making legacy hardware-based security far less effective.

As stated by Emt Distribution claims, iboss permits modern, distributed workforces 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 policy enforcement point built on a containerized architecture.

This approach enables organizations 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. 

Emt Distribution stated that it is building iboss’s partner ecosystem in the region utilizing a 100% two-tier distribution model. Channel partners, MSPs, and MSSPs can take advantage of Emt Distribution’s value-added services to complement their own areas of expertise. Value-added services include pre and post-sales support, channel development, engaged sales processes, and marketing assistance. Emt Distribution and iboss signed a deal in February 2022 for distribution in Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, and Hong Kong, and this new agreement extends distribution to the Middle East and Africa.

M Mobasseri, CEO, Emt Distribution stated: “The global pandemic, with the shift to hybrid work and cloud environments, has forced organizations to look beyond traditional security approaches. The iboss Zero Trust Edge Cloud Platform meets an urgent requirement for organizations and reseller partners to manage new cybersecurity risks and enable this shift.”

Paul Martini, CEO, and co-founder, iboss stated: “We are proud to partner with Emt Distribution to help organizations in the Middle East and Africa not only meet their security needs but also prepare for the future. With the iboss Zero Trust Edge, organizations can adopt a Zero Trust architecture that protects resources from attackers regardless of location, while allowing only approved users to access those resources from wherever they work. This greatly reduces an organization’s cyber risk while increasing their security posture exponentially.”

According to Emt Distribution sources, without fast and secure connectivity to cloud applications from anywhere, the cloud revolution would not be possible. The iboss platform is purpose-built to meet the security and connectivity needs of modern, distributed workforces accessing resources via the cloud. iboss shifts the focus from protecting the network perimeter to protecting resources.
