Menlo Security Unveils the First Cloud-delivered Secure Enterprise Browser, Setting the Highest Standard in Browser Security

New capabilities transform any browser into a secure enterprise browser, support easy browser policy management, and enable safe and simple hybrid work and zero-trust access

MOUNTAIN VIEW, California. – February 20, 2024 – Menlo Security, the pioneer of browser security, today announced the industry’s first cloud-delivered Secure Enterprise Browser solution. Building on trusted and proven elements of the Menlo Secure Cloud Browser, the SaaS solution delivers a comprehensive approach to enterprise browser security, protecting enterprise users where they work and securing applications from Internet-borne attacks. Menlo has dramatically enhanced cloud-delivered browser security with new capabilities that ensure safety without requiring users to give up the browser they love.

The Menlo Security Enterprise Browser solution is powered by the Secure Cloud Browser, which protects millions of enterprise users globally. The solution is deployed today, delivering end-to-end visibility and dynamic policy enforcement directly inside browser sessions and blocking zero-hour phishing, malware, and ransomware attacks. By combining the benefits of the Menlo Secure Cloud Browser and the new capabilities, the Menlo Secure EnterpriseBrowser solution provides unparalleled protection against even the most advanced and evasive threats, no matter what browser users choose.

The Menlo Secure Enterprise Browser solution includes dramatic new capabilities for:

  • Managing local browser security policies within Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge
  • Protecting users with the Menlo Secure Cloud Browser
  • Securing access to applications and protecting associated data down to the last mile

The new capabilities are available now:

Menlo Security Browser Posture Manager provides easy browser configuration assessment and instant attack surface analysis. Most enterprises neglect browser policy management: there are thousands of settings and updates every two to four weeks. During 2023, 175 CVEs classified as high or critical were issued and over 125 new features were added to Chromium, the open-source web browser project that underpins both Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge. The work required to track configuration settings and feature additions and the lack of automated tooling has left a significant security gap within these enterprises. Menlo Security Browser Posture Manager automates the process and enables administrators to define policies for browsers and deploy them instantly. Menlo Security Browser Posture Manager works with Microsoft InTune to set browser policies and enables compliance with CIS Benchmarks for browsers.

Menlo Browser Extension and Menlo Security Client extends effortless zero-trust access to more users, devices, and applications. The Menlo Browser Extension supports unmanaged devices and adds a self-service deployment option. The Menlo Security Client enables cloud-based access to legacy applications, going beyond web applications for users that need support for SSH and RDP.

Menlo Security Last-Mile Data Protection goes beyond traditional DLP technology, applying protection in the cloud that extends copy-paste control, user-input limits, watermarking and data masking to the endpoint. Last-mile DLP protects against releasing unprotected information to the local browser endpoints and stops it from being leaked into web applications such as ChatGPT.

“Employees spend 75% of their work day in the browser, making secure browsing an essential requirement for every enterprise,” said Amir Ben-Efraim, CEO and co-founder, Menlo Security. “Simply put, traditional approaches to cyber security are failing. Phishing regularly evades all existing protections, and ransomware doubled in 2023 to over $1B in payments. We need a new approach, and browser security is ground zero. We have launched the industry’s first cloud-delivered secure enterprise browser to finally stop these attacks, once and for all. It transforms any browser into a secure enterprise browser, adding the local browser into a layered security architecture by managing it with a curated security policy, leveraging it for zero-trust application access, and creating a digital twin of the browser in the cloud to eliminate threats.”

Menlo Security provides browser security to about 8 million users across nearly 1,000 global enterprises and leading government organizations, including the U.S. Department of Defense. Enterprises large and small benefit from risk reductions that facilitate more efficient work. Users can keep the browser they love by adopting the Menlo Security browser extension. The Menlo Security Client, an optional component, adds support for legacy client-server applications. The Menlo Secure Cloud Browser empowers hybrid workers, contractors, and BYOD workers to do business.

“The innovations from Menlo Security enable safe hybrid work and make zero-trust access easy, even on unmanaged desktops and devices,” said Greg Pastor, Director Information Security at Remedi SeniorCare Pharmacy. “We can protect users even when we don’t control their device. We don’t force them to use a new browser. And we worry less, because the local browser is no longer an open-door to our business. We feel assured that risk to users and applications and data is reduced because we have an enterprise browsing solution that starts with security and also increases productivity. Menlo’s new capabilities increase safety without adding complexity, and we have stopped worrying so much about local-browser weaknesses or duplicating costs with a replacement browser.”

The Menlo Enterprise Browser solution enables a simple to adopt and unified zero-trust access model that works with enterprise-managed systems and unmanaged devices, too. Menlo accelerates governance over privileged access while moving past legacy approaches, such as virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) and remote-access VPNs.

In stark contrast to legacy VDI systems, the Menlo Security solution delivers modern secure remote access for unmanaged users and devices. It supports safe browsing, web filtering, isolated cloud browsing, exploit protection, and zero-trust access without frustrating end users and is significantly more cost effective than VDI, network infrastructure-based, or replacement browser approaches.

The Menlo Secure Enterprise Browser solution enables the workspace of tomorrow, delivering browser security to desktops and mobile work, and protecting users, applications, and data.
