The MSIP can be deployed stand-alone or in conjunction with existing security systems to address a range of critical needs, including:
By executing user sessions away from the endpoint and delivering only safe rendering information to devices, users are protected from ransomware.
Architectures including a Secure Web Gateway (SWG) are often faced with a difficult decision around allowing access to new or less popular websites that have not been classified by the SWG. Isolating uncategorized web sites via the Menlo Security Platform enables users to safely access more of the web while reducing the risk of malware.
The MSIP can eliminate the risks from weaponized documents (.pdf, .doc, .xls, .ppt) by isolating them in the Platform. Administrators can optionally allow users to download safe PDF versions of rendered documents (with all active content removed) and can also allow download of original documents for designated users.
Potentially harmful content such as Java and Flash is executed within the Platform, delivering a high-fidelity experience to the user without delivering any active content that can infect the endpoint. Administrators can remove Java and Flash on users' browsers but still allow access to Java and Flash apps without the risk of malware.
The MSIP isolates and eliminates malware from sites accessed by clicking on links in emails. Additionally, the Email Isolation Service blocks user inputs to unknown web sites and thus prevents users from revealing their personal information.
