Topic: Isolation: Does Your Web Browser Need a Stunt Double?
The world’s a different place today than even 6 months ago. Remote working is an accepted normal (where possible), cloud applications are front-and-center irrespective of the industry, and the browser is the defacto endpoint for many applications and users. While it’s nearly 50 years since the dawn of the first malware in 1971, it seems to be an accepted fact of life today. As we use the Internet every day, we continue to expose our endpoints and our businesses to various types of threats – ransomware, phishing, malvertising, crypto-mining threats, rootkits, and more.
Safeguarding against these ever-changing threats requires rethinking our approach to end user security. In the battle of security vs. productivity, productivity wins more often than we might like. But it needn’t always be a battle. Solutions that can open access to the users while safeguarding them can balance security with productivity, and allow end-users (and security practitioner) alike to each achieve successes in their battle against the real foe.
In this presentation, we will learn about:
- The evolving nature of threats and why we still struggle to overcome them?
- The changing role of the browser in the new world
- Browser isolation – what is it? do I need it? is it another hype?
