Zero Trust for Federal Agencies

Posted by Mehul Patel on Dec 4, 2020

Internet Isolation Enables a Zero Trust Approach That Protects Remote Users from Cybersecurity Threats without Impacting the User Experience.

Federal agencies are being forced to rethink the way they empower public servants with the tools and information they need to make government work. Even before the Covid-19 global pandemic, agencies were undergoing digital transformation in an effort to create efficiencies and be more responsive to citizens.

Phishing Attacks Are Scarily Easy to Build

Posted by James Locus on Sep 22, 2020

Targeting People, Not the Infrastructure

Historically, many cyberattacks tended to be technology-focused and required specialized knowledge to expertly fool a network into believing the attacker was an authorized user. Spoofing, man-in-the-middle (LAN or Wi-Fi), DNS, and other attacks require actual skill (and a bit of malice) to properly execute.

Posted by James Locus on Sep 3, 2020

Isolation for Zero Trust Phishing Protection

Phishing sites frequently evade web and email filters because of the inability of secure gateways to detect new phishing websites or categorize them properly. According to Menlo Labs, web and email gateways wrongly categorize 10-15 percent of malicious websites as safe.

How Isolation Changes Incident Response

Large Groups of Isolated Users Shrink Your Exposure Surface

Enterprises frequently acquire an isolation solution (with Menlo for remote browser isolation) for groups of users, such as VIPs, rather than their entire workforce. While this strategy insulates VIPs from malware attacks, it assumes that only VIPs have access to potentially crippling information.
