In the current scenario, the internet has become a quintessential part of almost all businesses. Be it at home or at the office, the internet has eased our life in many ways. But at the same time, it has opened new attack methods for cybercriminals. They are using browser-based attacks to infect the systems and access your valuable data. So, if you are looking for a way to safeguard yourself from such attacks, then 'remote browser isolation' might just be the answer.
What is remote browser isolation?
In short, remote browsing isolation is a method by which you can enjoy a seamless malware-free version of the internet. It isolates the web-based malware from reaching your computer, thus securing the integrity of a network.
How does it work?
It is achieved by executing codes from a web page in a secure virtual/disposable container on a server, which is situated between a user's device and the internet. Only the visual content of the web page along with files are sent to the users. Thus, if an attack occurs, the impact is confined to the container, preventing only the adverse effects from spreading beyond. At the end of each session, this disposable container is destroyed along with any nefarious content. And once again, a fresh container is rebuilt.
How is remote browsing isolation better?
Remote browsing isolation enables users easy web access on any kind of computing device and operating system, which otherwise is a limitation for other isolation techniques. In addition, the ease with which it can be deployed amongst a variety of devices is another reason for its usage. Also, it is cost-effective and can be scaled quickly and cheaply.
