iboss Network Security has been recognized for making a positive difference in education by K12 leaders who named the company's iboss Web Security Solution to District Administration magazine's "Readers' Choice Top 100 Product for 2013."
Selected by District Administration magazine editors from over 1,800 nominations, the winning products received the highest number of nominations and best descriptions from K12 leaders. The Readers' Choice Top 100 was announced in the December 2013 issue of District Administration. In recognizing the most innovative products, the annual District Administration Readers' Choice Top 100 Products award informs superintendents and other senior school district leaders about products their colleagues around the country are using to help their districts excel.
The iboss Secure Web Gateway secures all aspects of Internet traffic, including web filtering, SSL access, applications, bandwidth throttling/QoS, on/off-premise mobile security, and BYOD management tools, combined with best-of-breed network threat and reporting dashboards in one solution. This comprehensive security suite gives you the tools you need to secure all aspects of Internet traffic. For schools, the level of visibility provided to the IT department promotes an effective learning environment for staff, parents and students.
"The fact that we had a record number of readers participating in this recognition program is a testament to the interest that K12 leaders have in products for improving educational outcomes and operational efficiencies," says JD Solomon, District Administration's editorial director. "All of the honorees in our Top 100 program should be very proud of their achievement."
"We're honored to be a part of this list. Our focus in education is to enable safe access to technology in the classroom. We seek to break from traditional web filtering technology which is too restrictive and does not provide teachers with the tools they need to embrace the best of the web in the classroom," said Peter Martini, COO and co-founder at iboss Network Security.
