You might be aware that Google recently warned all Mac and Windows users to urgently update their Chrome Brower, due to a security bug that could let hackers hijack their computer.

When such scenarios arise, immediately installing the patch or updating the version, is such a reactive approach to securing systems. There is so much reliance on vendors to help secure our applications.

Having a solution to pro-actively monitor browsers and adding an extra layer of security would be ideal. This is even more vital now that over 30% of exploits are through Chrome, IE, Firefox, etc.

Web browsers can be breached in the following ways:

  • Operating system is breached, and malware is reading/modifying the browser’s memory space in privilege mode.
  • Main browser executable can be hacked.
  • Browser components can be hacked.
  • Browser plugins can be hacked.
  • Browser network communications can be intercepted outside the machine.

The browser may not be aware of any of these breaches, and may show users a safe connection is made.

Browser Security Plus helps IT administrators manage and secure browsers across networks. It enables them to enforce security policies, control browser extensions /plug-ins, sandbox and lockdown enterprise browsers and ensure compliance with stipulated browser configurations. This protects their networks from browser-based threats.
