Today's challenge:

Workers today want to get business done anytime and anywhere, as a result of which mobility and cloud computing has become an integral part of all organizations.

Obtain complete visibility into browser usage in your network.

With multiple browsers in the market and each of these browsers using their own set of add-ons, IT admins find it hard to predict where attacks might spring out from. They have no idea what browsers are being used, if the browsers are up to date, which add-ons are being used, and if they are safe and up-to-date.

Awareness is the first step towards empowerment. Browser Security Plus helps you:

  • Keep track of the browsers being used.
  • Remain vigilant about browsers that aren't up-to-date.
  • Watch out for computers that haven't been in contact for a period of time.
  • Stay aware of add-ons that are popularly used.
  • Keep track of potentially harmful add-ons in use.
  • Track and monitor websites being visited.
  • Find out the computers containing specific add-ons.
  • Monitor the security scores of browsers.

Keeping track of the above factors helps IT admins be aware of the possible loopholes for attacks. This would in turn help IT admins to manage and secure all browsers thereby preventing possible attacks.

Browser Management for Enterprises

Browser Management refers to a set of activities performed by the IT admin on browsers to improve security and in turn enhance productivity of users. This includes deploying settings to computers to harden the browsers, restricting access to unnecessary websites, removing unused plugins, disabling harmful extensions, routing website traffic to a trusted browsers, etc. These activities increase users efficiency by ensuring security. Browser Security Plus is an easy-to-use enterprise browser management software that helps manage multiple browsers from a single pane of glass.

Manage browser add-ons.

Each internet browser has a unique add-on ecosystem. Internet Explorer uses plug-ins, Browser Helper Objects (BHOs), and accelerators; Google Chrome has extensions, themes, and apps; and Firefox is all about extensions. These unique add-on ecosystems have been evolving for some time, up until the point where it's now almost impossible for IT administrators to keep track of the various add-ons deployed on each user's computer.

Ensuring compliance based on security scores.

The internet plays host to not only data, but also a flurry of malware. This is why browser providers offer a number of security settings to prevent security breaches. But how do you ensure users are employing the recommended browser security standards? Sometimes users can change the recommended browser settings without even realizing it, which can make it challenging and time consuming to ensure each computer in your network is following the recommended standards. But with the right tool, ensuring compliance is easy.

Browser Lockdown

Internet explorer is prone to a plethora of threats owing to the usage of vulnerable plugins. But Internet Explorer becomes a requirement in organizations to render legacy business applications. Most employees, however, use the Internet Explorer to visit non-business sites, which could potentially cause two issues:

  • Security breaches.

    Today's cybercriminals manipulate human psychology to acquire sensitive enterprise data; they know what makes users want to click on a particular link. An employee following one of these nefarious links often means that malware will infect their system. Many malware variants either hold data captive for ransom or corrupt entire systems, both of which lead to extreme financial losses.
  • Loss of productivity.

    The internet is a vast place, with both helpful tools and distracting clickbait. Emoloyees can easily lose track of time while surfing through personal emails, social media, or any random page they find interesting. Often, by the time these distracted individuals return to work, it's too late, and they'll settle on either offering lower quality work to finish things up, or not finishing at all.

Why is web Filtering important?

Most organizations have moved to cloud based-applications, making browsers a tool that employees use on a daily basis to access work. Browsers have become a conduit to not only the cloud, but also to immeasurable malware and distractions hosted on the web. In order to ensure that browsers do not bring in malicious traffic, web filter becomes necessary.

Web Filtering Software for Enterprises

The internet today is filled with malware and other attack vectors laying low, waiting to take advantage of users' slip ups and distractions. While browsing the web, users sometimes accidentally land on a site that has malware hosted on it, leading to compromise of sensitive enterprise data. To mitigate this threat, Browser Security Plus provides corporate web filtering software.

Blacklist URLs with Web Filter.

IT admins can blacklist URLs that are not needed in the organization, making these sites inaccessible to users. This prevents users from visiting sites that aren't permitted in the organization. IT admins can define groups for sites using categories like social media, video streaming, productivity, business, etc. Groups like social media and video streaming can be blacklisted to ensure that user productivity doesn't drop.
