EY Announces iboss Network Security Co-Founders Are EY Entrepreneur of the Year 2014 Award Winners

Award Recognizes Entrepreneurial Excellence in Technology Category

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 20, 2014) - EY announced that Paul Martini, CEO, and Peter Martini, President and COO, of iboss, a leading provider of network security solutions, received the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year™ 2014 Award in the technology category in San Diego. The award recognizes outstanding entrepreneurs who demonstrate excellence and extraordinary success in such areas as innovation, financial performance, and personal commitment to their businesses and communities. Paul and Peter Martini were selected by an independent panel of judges, and the award was presented at a special gala event at The Grand Del Mar on June 17, 2014.

"On behalf of the entire iboss team, we're thrilled to receive this honor from EY," said Paul Martini, CEO of iboss Network Security. "When Peter and I founded iboss, our mission was to introduce a new approach to network security. BYOD, a mobile workforce and the increasingly complex cyber threat landscape has made legacy security approaches nearly obsolete. Thanks to the great iboss team, we're thriving and growing at an incredible pace."

Now in its 28th year, the program has honored the inspirational leadership of such entrepreneurs as Howard Schultz of Starbucks Coffee Company, Pierre Omidyar of eBay, Inc., and Mindy Grossman of HSN. Recent US national winners include Reid Hoffman and Jeff Weiner of LinkedIn; Hamdi Ulukaya, founder of Chobani; and 2013 winner Hamid Moghadam, CEO and Chairman of Prologis.

As San Diego award winners, Paul and Peter Martini are now eligible for the Entrepreneur Of The Year 2014 national program. Award winners in several national categories, as well as the Entrepreneur Of The Year National Overall Award winner, will be announced at the annual awards gala in Palm Springs, California, on November 15, 2014. The awards are the culminating event of the EY Strategic Growth Forum®, the nation's most prestigious gathering of high-growth, market-leading companies.
