The browser is often your users' go-to tool for accessing multiple resources, including sensitive and confidential information and third-party resources. The wide scope of browser usage makes it an easy target for threat actors to use in the early stages of an intrusion. Browser-borne attacks are omnipresent, and the importance of viewing the web browser as the new endpoint cannot be understated. With a browser isolation platform such as Cyberincs Isla, security teams can insert an extra layer of security and potentially mitigate a wide range of browser-borne attacks.

In this webcast, SANS Instructor Matt Bromiley puts Isla through its paces and shares his experiences with Isla from both the user and security teams perspective.

Attendees at this webcast will learn about:

  • The impact that browser isolation has on the end users experience
  • The ease of installing Isla, and working with high-level dashboards and accessing key data points
  • The level of control and insight that security teams can have over users and their activities within the browser
  • The various analytics security teams can glean, including browser session lengths and visibility into normal versus abnormal user activity
  • How to get access to threats and malicious files without needing an EDR technology in place
