Menlo Security and By Light are partnering to design and implement a Cloud Based Internet Isolation prototype capability for the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA). The agency is the IT combat support agency of the Department of Defense (DoD). The agency provides, operates and assures command and control information-sharing capabilities and a globally accessible enterprise information infrastructure in direct support to joint warfighters, national level leaders and other mission and coalition partners across the full spectrum of military operations.
Menlo Security, together with By Light, will implement a cloud-based Internet isolation prototype for the agency with the goal of providing U.S. military personnel with safe, malware free, high-fidelity Internet access anywhere around the globe.
The following features distinguish Menlo’s platform for our customers:
- Native browsing experience: With Menlo, users continue to browse the web just as they have always done, without needing any additional clients or plug-ins on their devices.
- Global footprint: Our global elastic cloud was built from scratch to be a multi-tenant, cloud-based environment that is capable of supporting millions of concurrent users worldwide.
- Seamless scalability: Menlo provides unlimited capacity elasticity via an automated process that lets its customers add users and resources within seconds.
As mentioned in my previous note , we continue to execute on this once-in-a-generation opportunity to rethink how organizations protect all users from email and web threats.
We are more confident than ever that our new architectural approach is the answer. Only a cloud-based Internet isolation solution like Menlo’s Internet Isolation Gateway enables the kind of security, access, and scalability required for large scale customers. We’re happy to be working with By Light to build and implement this cybersecurity solution to protect such a critical global network. If you’re interested, you can read the press release.
