Browser Isolation

CYBERSECURITY DICTIONARY

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 plug-ins. 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.
