The browser is where work happens
Umbrella remote browser isolation (RBI) provides an added layer of protection against browser-based security threats for high-risk users. RBI moves the most dangerous part of browsing the internet away from the end user’s machine and into the cloud. This makes it possible for users to visit risky web destinations safely, enabling users to be productive and access the web destinations they need without negative impacts.
The case for remote browser isolation
“Organizations that isolate internet web browsing will experience a 70% reduction in attacks that compromise end user systems.”
Gartner, Innovation Insight for Remote Browser Isolation, 2018
Browser-based attacks pose big risks
Organizations must balance the need for access and productivity with the need to stop browser-based zero-day threats that pose enormous risk to your business.
RBI isolates web traffic between the user device and browser-based malware. It creates a surrogate browser in the cloud that visits a website on behalf of the user. All content is rendered safely and seamlessly to the end user.
Users can browse potentially risky sites safely and maintain productivity, and IT teams can spend less time granting exceptions and responding to attacks. And since it’s cloud-delivered, RBI is easy to scale on demand and works with all devices, browsers, and operating systems.
Defend against modern cyber threats
Users spend 75% of the workday in a web browser – and attackers are waiting. Many cyberattacks leverage a browser-based exploit to execute malicious code. Malware, ransomware, cryptomining, fileless attacks, and drive-by downloads can all take place in a web browser. In some cases, a zero-day attack can occur without any advanced warning.
