It’s hard to believe but there was a time in which browsers didn’t even exist. Today we use our browsers nearly every minute, whether we choose Safari, Mozilla FireFox, Google Chrome browser or other browsers (we prefer not to mention Internet Explorer anymore, as we are an innovative company 🙃). Using browsers we can work more efficiently.
However, without cyber security, web browsers are a target for all kinds of malware that infiltrate millions of businesses.
That’s why a lot of companies count on web proxies, https everywhere and secure web gateways to protect their businesses against malpractices. Hence they rely on a huge range of security solutions for web-based malware protection, they use an algorithm to detect bad content or block users from surfing on websites that might be dangerous.
Those solutions are useful. However, cybercriminals are smartasses too and sometimes new viruses, spyware or malware threats slip through the cracks. As a result, companies and organizations are struggling to outsmart those harmful practices. Ad-blockers are technically also a form of isolated browsing. Now, remote Browser Isolation blocks ads as part of a total solution.
As an IT company we had to invent smarter cyber security technologies and that’s how browser isolation came to life.
With web browser isolation (also called Web Isolation) we shifted our focus: instead of preventing users from surfing on insecure websites, we offer them isolated browsers in which they can get access to any kind of website in a safe and secure way. In other words, we believe in a zero trust security approach, as – according to us – secure URLs have become history. With browser isolation source code can’t be accessed or changed by unauthorized people, because users see a video instead of the actual code.
