Parkinson, based in the Vacaville area, has been in technology sales and management for almost 20 years. She’s been affiliated with several tech companies, including GuardianEdge Technologies, Reach Systems, Aurora and, most recently, McAfee, where she was account manager for government, health care and education in the West.

“The timing is perfect for me to join iboss,” Parkinson told Techwire. “All through 2020, I worked with agencies that struggled to support a user base that became 100 percent remote almost overnight. Making sure that users have access to critical resources while working from home, and not compromising security, was the No. 1 priority for most agencies.”

The iboss SASE cloud platform provides network security as a service, delivered in the cloud, as a complete SaaS offering.

“Going into 2021, organizations are considering work from home on a permanent basis,” Parkinson said. “This means fast and secured connectivity between users and applications, cloud or otherwise, will continue to be a key initiative for most organizations. iboss is so relevant to this conversation.”

Parkinson studied at DeAnza College and earned her bachelor’s of science degree in information systems management from the University of San Francisco.
