Remote Browser Isolation

Extending zero-hour phishing and evasive malware protection wherever users work.

What is Remote Browser Isolation?

Remote Browser Isolation (RBI) protects organizations from web and email-based malware using a Zero Trust approach to security. This preventative strategy routes all web traffic through a cloud-based enterprise browser. It doesn’t matter if content is good or bad, categorized or uncategorized, isolation treats everything as potentially malicious—delivering only safe, sanitized content to the end user.

How does Remote Browser Isolation work?

By moving browsing activity away from the endpoint into a cloud-based enterprise browser, RBI separates users from internet-based threats while delivering only safe, clean content down to the endpoint. Delivered through the cloud, this protection follows a user wherever business takes them—in the office, on the road, at a conference, at a customer site. Any time they are connected to the Internet, type in a URL or click on a link, the content is fetched and executed away from the user’s device in a remote enterprise browser hosted in the cloud. The content is then sent to the user, with the same look and feel of any site performing locally on their endpoint, but with all the malicious code stripped out.

Why is Browser Isolation so important?

Digital transformation has revolutionized how we operate, with a significant shift towards online work facilitated by widely used browsers like Chrome and Edge. Forrester Research indicates that the average enterprise worker now spends 75% of their "device time" within their web browser. However, this reliance on browsers poses significant security risks, leaving enterprises vulnerable to a range of browser-based threats.

The Ultimate Guide to Preventing Evasive Threats

What are the benefits of Remote Browser Isolation?

Remote Browser Isolation protects users against highly evasive adaptive threats, removes the threat of data exfiltration, provides complete visibility into the browser, allows users to work without worry, and meets the demands of today's hybrid workforce.

Protects users against highly evasive threats

Highly evasive threats bypass commonly deployed security tools hidden in webpages, downloadable web content, and vulnerable plugins—this includes HTML Smuggling, MFA Bypass, Man-in-the-Middle attacks, and Living Off Trusted Websites approach.

Removes the threat of data exfiltration

By executing all web requests away from the endpoint, Remote Browser Isolation prevents webpages from compromising user devices and keeps threats off the endpoint.

Provide complete visibility into the browser

Complete visibility allows you to shrink the existing risk gap, protect your users against highly evasive threats, and provide security teams with a better understanding of how users interact with the browser.

Allow users to work without worry

Remote Browsing Isolation provides a zero trust approach with open internet policies so you can give IT teams the security they need and give users the open browsing experience they want.

Meet the demands of today’s hybrid workforce

Proven scalability and a seamless browsing experience regardless of user count or fluctuating traffic loads.

How does Remote Browser Isolation fit in existing security stacks?

RBI can be delivered as part of an enterprise browser solution or through integration with network security systems, such as an existing Secure Web Gateway (SWG). There is no need to rip and replace any devices or security tools. In fact, robust RBI solutions can even help eliminate redundant layers of security that aren’t necessary anymore. RBI works in concert with other security capabilities to provide a preventative-first approach to protect against evasive threats and brings modern protection to every single user, no matter where they work.

What is cloud-based Internet isolation (CBII)?

CBII is a Department of Defense project that uses RBI to transfer Internet browsing sessions from traditional desktop browsers to a secure, isolated cloud-platform. The service isolates potential malicious code and content within the cloud platform, separating the threat from direct connections to DOD networks.  This ensures users are protected regardless of where work takes them and provides the same user experience and level of security they’ve come to know.
