How can government organizations, private enterprises, and academic institutions minimize the cybersecurity and privacy risks associated with accessing the internet from desktop or mobile devices?

 

Valuable pointers come from the defense sector. A new success story, Shields Up: How a Military Unit Simultaneously Increased Network Access and Decreased Cyber Risk, showcases how Authentic8's remote browser isolation technology enabled a U.S. military unit to implement internet policies for personal web access, without increasing the risk of introducing any malware or malicious code into the unclassified network.

The growing need to access publicly available information (PAI) on the web and to leverage the internet for both official and personal business (check out my poston "morale browsing") is making secure access to the broader network a necessity for more military personnel.

"Shields Up" shows how remote browser isolation with Silo for Safe Access is supporting this change process. Silo enables and secures responsible web use in organizations for which the security risks and costs associated with the broader use of traditional browsers are not an option.

Case Study: Department of Defense use of Silo for Safe Access cloud browser

How can Silo support your organization's mission? Read this case study to learn:

  • What compelled an organization to seek out a secure cloud-based browser
  • The important relationship between policy changes and technology adoption
  • Why the organization decided to migrate away from traditional web browsers in favor of Authentic8's Silo for Safe Access
  • How removing the web browser as a primary attack vector contributes to organization-wide cyber hygiene
