The cloud-based Menlo Security Isolation Platform (MSIP) eliminates the possibility of malware reaching user devices via compromised or malicious web sites, email or documents. This is not detection or classification; instead, the user’s web session and all active content (e.g. Java, Flash, etc.), whether good or bad, is fully executed and contained in the Isolation Platform. Only safe, malware-free rendering information is delivered to the user’s endpoint. No active content—including any potential malware—leaves the platform.
In the Menlo Security isolation model, malware has no path to reach an endpoint, and legitimate content needn’t be blocked in the interests of security. Administrators can open up more of the Internet to their users while simultaneously eliminating the risk of attacks.
The MSIP solution requires no endpoint software or management yet keeps risks away from any device and any browser. Virtual Shredding quickly discards completed sessions to eliminate infection persistence, and the solution integrates with SSO technologies with Active Directory Federation Services.
