10 Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Consider Isolation!


This is intended to be a little tongue in cheek for readers, however it’s been written to provoke discussion on how organizations continue to do the same things they have done for the last 15 years without thinking. 

Web and email continue to be the two major vectors of attack for organizations.  But, are they paying enough attention to the risks of malvertising, ransomware, spear-phishing, infections, user tracking and other threats associated with using the web?  

Most would agree they would like to do more, but don’t know what other choices they have.    

Isolation offers organizations the benefit of freeing access to content and improving productivity, while removing the risk of infection for users from web sites, files and documents downloaded from the web. 

Below are 10 reasons why you shouldn’t consider Isolation:  

1.  You love restoring yet another file server at 10 p.m. on Monday night whose content was encrypted from another
    successful ransomware infection.
2. Your security analysts keep asking you for more logs and alerts to review.
3. You feel like you are re-categorizing your URL database, not your vendor.
4. You never tire of sending your Anti-Virus (AV) vendor yet another file that is not detected by your desktop AV
5. Your board members back your requests for more budget to improve security capabilities every time you ask.
6. You enjoy the extra overtime to apply out-of-band Adobe Flash updates across your organization.
7.  Because of all the user education you provide, your employees can tell what a phishy mail looks like.
8. You are so confident in your locked-down desktop build that you know nothing can compromise it.
9. Cyber security is a fad and we can just get back to business next year.
10. Your business has never been compromised and no one would target your organization.
