Detection-based approaches don’t protect against modern-day attacks. But Menlo Security’s new approach to web protection — isolation — does. Rather than distinguishing between safe and malicious web traffic, Menlo Security simply isolates all web activity on an always-on pool of secure web browsers and uses patented technology to deliver a seamless browsing experience. With nothing being executed on users' devices, there is no risk of malware. And with no endpoint software from a web security solution to install or manage, there's no admin overhead.
All web content is isolated during the fetch and execute steps of web browsing. The original data and files are never transmitted, so there’s no way for them to infect anything.Read the report
Zero infections and no endpoint software mean there are no costly troubleshooting, remediation, or recovery operations. Unlike video streaming isolation, there’s no ask for additional bandwidth.Watch the video
The detection-based approaches that traditional SWGs employ are no longer effective. Menlo has re-imagined the SWG with isolation at its core to completely eliminate malware infections, achieve 95%-plus declines in credential loss, and decrease data exfiltration.
While Menlo makes blocking risky web content obsolete, companies still need to block objectionable content. For this, Menlo’s unique “allow without risk” policies allow companies to eliminate the risk associated with uncategorized or “typosquatting” websites.
Everyone knows not to open unsolicited documents. But everyone still does it, allowing hackers to steal user credentials. Menlo disarms weaponized documents before they get to your users’ devices by isolating and opening all documents and email attachments safely.
Sensitive information is scattered across your organization and the cloud, making your users an attractive target for hackers. Menlo’s highly efficacious File Upload and Download policies, including a unique Isolate+Read-Only option, massively reduce the risk of data exfiltration.
Personal webmail — traditionally a weak link in an organization’s security strategy — is no longer a risk with Menlo. Menlo isolates all web traffic, including any link that may have been clicked from a personal email account, to render any malware ineffective.
Unfettered access to uncategorized URLs introduces security risk. Blocking access and false positives inhibit user productivity and create a flood of help desk requests. By isolating all URLs, Menlo eliminates the risk from malicious websites while maintaining user productivity.
“Menlo Security holds the promise to eliminate the risk from targeted phishing attacks, especially those that attempt to steal user credentials.”
“Financial heavyweights are investing millions of dollars into a cybersecurity startup that aims to paralyze phishing attacks.”
“Cybersecurity is a top priority for us. This investment is an example of how we will continue to dedicate time and resources to the challenge.”
