What is Browser Isolation?

Browser isolation removes the browsing process from the end user's desktop and moves it to a dedicated browser server (or cloud-based browser service) to confine related security threats.

 

Web browsers, which are so ubiquitous today, represent a primary threat vector due to inherent vulnerabilities in both the browsers themselves and their related plugins. Browser isolation, an emerging security concept, removes the browsing process from the end user's desktop and moves it to a dedicated browser server (or cloud-based browser service).

 

Through this process, any related security threats are thereby confined, or "isolated," to the dedicated server or service sandbox.
