Containing the Malware Plague – Announcing Ericom Shield for Secure Browsing
We are thrilled to announce the release of Ericom Shield for Secure Browsing, the second generation of our secure browsing solution. Ericom Shield was designed to isolate the most prevalent threat vector for ransomware, zero-day attacks, drive-by downloads and other cyber threats — the common web browser.
“In recent years, despite the near universal adoption of anti-virus and web gateway solutions, browser- and email-borne attacks have grown to represent 80% of malicious activity, costing companies dearly in downtime, credibility, recovery efforts and ransom payouts,” said Joshua Behar, Ericom Software CEO, in the release announcement. “Ericom is proud to launch our second-generation secure browsing solution, at a time when the dominant approach still heavily relies on patches and anti-virus updates.”
Alternatively termed “remote browser isolation”, or simply “remote browsing”, this innovative technology is rapidly gaining recognition from leading analysts as a critical layer of protection against all web-based attacks. Given the limitations of traditional detection-based cybersecurity measures, organizations are now able to bolster their existing security infrastructure with a well-rounded secure browsing solution that addresses both known and new, zero-day threats.
As a clientless, device-agnostic solution, Ericom Shield provides a native, interactive and threat-free browsing experience from any standard browser, regardless of the underlying hardware or OS. Additionally, Ericom Shield comes with pre-integrated, best-of-breed Content Disarm and Reconstruction (CDR) technology, ensuring all downloaded files are scanned and cleansed before being released to the user device.
