Why ULTRA Secure Browsing?
Links in phishing emails. Watering hole attacks. The web is a platform for delivering malware to your user's endpoint. Traditional security techniques based on detection are struggling against sophisticated and targeted attackers.
Webmail. Social media. File sharing sites. As well as the malware risk, malicious or ignorant users can upload confidential data leading to large scale data loss.
Security-conscious organizations no longer allow uncontrolled web access. Existing firewall and proxy solutions should be used to block access to links that are too risky. But aggressive blocking can cause problems for users - real business problems that result in reduced business performance.
Ultra-secure browsing delivers the seemingly impossible: risky web links can be made available to users without putting the organization’s sensitive data and systems at risk.
The vision is this: click on any link. Don’t worry.
How can that be done?
One way is simple: block risky links and tell employees to use a different physical machine to access them. But that is not efficient or scalable.
Silicon Assured Video Isolation technology (Garrison SAVI®) delivers ultra-secure browsing in an integrated, convenient experience. By converting risky web content to a simple stream of pixels, and using separate hardware to isolate the risky content from the endpoint, Garrison SAVI® allows users to click even the most dangerous links while eliminating concerns about malware and data loss.

Beyond Just Browsing
Access to websites is only the beginning for secure remote browsing.
With secure remote browsing, documents can be downloaded from the Internet and viewed remotely. They can even be stored in the cloud for later retrieval, all without touching your sensitive endpoint. Of course, when you decide you really need to work with them natively, they can be brought across onto your native desktop – allowing you to use the full range of content security techniques to mitigate the risks that introduces.
And browsing workflow can be enhanced using Garrison’s Silicon Assured Content Sanitization technology to provide seamless copy and paste, and printing.
The immediate benefits of secure remote browsing are clear: click on any link without worrying about what might lie behind it.
Eliminate a whole class of threat, and reduce the number of breaches: secure your systems and your data better, without sacrificing connectivity. In fact, in many cases organizations may be able to extend connectivity to sites that are currently blocked for security reasons.
But done right, the benefits of secure remote browsing extend further:
Reduce the ability for malicious or careless insiders to leak information to the web.
Users of secure remote browsing need to be able to click and type, but they don’t need to be able to upload sensitive information. Secure remote browsing allows opportunities for data leakage to be restricted and monitored.
Reduce the impact of malware received via email, USB stick, or other channel.
In many cases, malware that does make it through your defenses expects to be able to communicate with the Internet to receive instructions and to exfiltrate data. With secure remote browsing, you can close off the channel to the majority of the Internet, neutralizing a large proportion of malware.
Reduce spend on other controls.
If you are confident your secure remote browsing solution is truly secure you can reduce spend on other controls. One key area is the Security Operations Center: reducing the volume of alerts from no-longer-risky web traffic allows SOC analysts to focus their time and attention on alerts that could cause real business impact.
