ContentKeeper Announces Ericom Technology Partnership to Add Remote Browser Isolation to ContentKeeper’s Secure Internet Gateway
Anaheim, CA (February 24, 2020) – ContentKeeper Technologies and Ericom Software have signed a technology partnership agreement that integrates Ericom Shield Remote Browser Isolation (RBI) technology into ContentKeeper’s Secure Internet Gateway solution. ContentKeeper Remote Browser Isolation, powered by Ericom, prevents ransomware, advanced web-borne threats, and phishing attacks from impacting devices and networks by executing active web content in a remote isolated container.
“Adding Ericom’s RBI technology to our Secure Internet Gateway provides our customers with an important defense against advanced zero-day malware that is increasingly being used in cyberattacks,” said David Wigley, ContentKeeper CEO. “Whether users browse to a malicious site on their own or reach one by clicking a seemingly innocuous URL embedded in a phishing email, they are completely safe since web content is never executed on the endpoint.”
Remote browser isolation operates with the assumption that all website content is suspect. When a user attempts to connect to a website protected by isolation, the site is immediately rendered in a secure remote container. An interactive media stream representing the website is then sent to the device’s browser, providing a secure, seamless, fully interactive user experience. Ericom’s browser isolation technology can render sites in read-only mode to prevent users from entering credentials for additional phishing protection.
ContentKeeper’s Secure Internet Gateway can select specific web traffic to be secured by isolation. In a typical scenario, URLs classified as “safe sites” can be white-listed and sent directly to the user’s local browser for rendering. When sites are classified as prohibited or unsafe, they will be blocked. When URLs are classified as “uncategorized” or “suspicious”, they will be executed and rendered in a virtual remote isolation chamber, and the site will be made available to users as a safe, fully interactive visual stream. The isolation technology ensures that any malware on the site will not reach the user’s device.
The Secure Internet Gateway is part of ContentKeeper’s multi-layered web security platform that unifies multiple critical security functions into a single cohesive, easy to manage next-generation web security solution. Within the solution, using remote browser isolation on targeted websites airgaps endpoints from threats in web content, ensuring users can get access to the sites they need without exposing the company to security risk.
“We are proud that ContentKeeper selected Ericom’s Remote Browser Isolation technology as the newest layer of threat defense in its web security platform,” said David Canellos, CEO, Ericom Software. “Our technology offers ContentKeeper customers innovative zero trust browsing capabilities that can protect them from ransomware and other advanced web-based threats targeting their users.”
