More companies have started using SaaS in recent years, including giants like Microsoft 365 and Google Workspace, due to the popularization of hybrid working. Unfortunately, these cloud-based systems are critical targets for attackers. In several reported cases, corporate networks are infected with malware and ransomware through a remote environment, causing a data breach and suspension of business operations.
Since the terminal-side browser and network are insecure in remote environments – and are already potentially infected with malware – the need to securely access internal data from remote environments has become an issue. more urgent for businesses. To address this issue, Browser Isolation protects the endpoint from browser-based threats and securely controls file manipulation when users access SaaS or enterprise applications from a remote environment.
One of the benefits of using virtual browsers is that they protect corporate networks from risky websites. Browser isolation provides a virtual browser that allows users to securely access line-of-business applications and external SaaS applications, even if their PCs are vulnerable. This feature also prohibits users from downloading and executing malicious files from emails, eliminating the threat of intrusion through the Internet. Website content is streamed to users’ browsers allowing them to access any web application securely.
Businesses also benefit from enhanced protection of sensitive data with the Browser Isolation feature. Browser isolation allows individual users to control file uploads and downloads centrally, and sensitive data can be accessed through the virtual browser to prevent data breaches. Additionally, downloaded data and access history are deleted at the end of each session to ensure security. With the release of Browser Isolation, Safous is introducing a new “Advanced” pricing tier. This tier includes everything the “Standard” and “Standard Plus” packages offer, including multi-factor authentication, external account linking, flexible policy settings, and more – plus the new Advanced Server Isolation feature. navigator of Safous.
