At some point, either through exploit or human error, your information is compromised.
Users use the same browser for everything,
and it quickly becomes a cesspool
They access apps from devices and networks
that might not be secure
They make honest mistakes handling logins
and sensitive data
Securing access to important websites is impossible when users use the same browser for everything. It’s hard to protect valuable data when it’s sitting a tab away from the latest internet meme. And the surface area for exploits gets larger as users rely on a variety of devices, join any open network and follow links without pause. The ubiquity of the web has made securing access impossible.
Protecting your data also means controlling how users interact with your web apps. But how? Users manage their own passwords, download content to random devices, upload it to cloud services, or stay logged into accounts from shared machines. The lack of uniform controls across web apps has made managing them impossible.
Silo is a cloud-based container designed for secure, controlled access to your important web apps
Silo contains web data in a secure sandbox, beyond the reach of exploits
Silo provides secure single sign-on to your web apps
Silo enforces data use policies regardless of device
Secure web apps
Each time they launch Silo, users get a freshly built browsing environment with SSO links to provisioned apps. All web code is contained within Silo, meaning apps are insulated from exploits, and business data is kept separate from personal browsing. Users interact with a benign display of the web app, keeping all web code off the device. And at session end Silo is destroyed along with all transient browsing data, leaving the device and server stateless. With Silo, your web apps live beyond the reach of network, client-side or web borne exploits.
Accessing apps in Silo is simple, robust and flexible. Authentication to Silo adjusts based on device and location. Users get streamlined access when things look typical, but face a higher bar when things don't. Once properly authenticated, Silo offers simple 1-click access to the web apps you've provisioned. Managing credentials in Silo gives you unprecedented control. For example you can provision apps without revealing login details, or revoke individual access without impacting entire teams which is perfect for shared accounts. You can set user's credentials or let them manage their own logins. Silo is a centralized way to control access to your web apps.
Web apps lack a uniform set of controls. But with Silo you can apply policies consistently regardless of the user's device. Define device access rights, strong authentication triggers, data transfer restrictions, site linking rules and more. For instance it's easy to enable access to Silo from anywhere, but restrict downloading of data to only known devices. You can configure policies at global, group or user levels. And with Silo's reporting tools, you have instant visibility into how your web apps are being accessed and what policies are being triggered.
Silo delivers the web apps you care about to the users that need them.
Apps can be 3rd party cloud services or internal web apps. Users can be employees, consultants, outsourced teams, you name it. You might put one app in Silo or many -- with different apps for different groups. Silo is particularly valuable for mobile workers using personal devices over insecure networks. Or where web app provisioning is a challenge, such as temps, pool employees or shared account situations. And since Silo works with Windows, Macs and iPads, users get the right experience regardless of their device.
Silo is a secure way to publish your web app to users on any device.
Any standard web app can be delivered through Silo. Layer in device access, strong authentication and data transfer policies. Delivering your app in Silo takes no custom integration work or changes to your web server infrastructure. Users launch your branded version of Silo to access your app. Manage access and data policies yourself, or delegate it to downstream admins. Silo lets you focus on building a great app while giving you peace of mind about data security.
In Silo, click on the Admin Console icon and register your organization. Once you've been approved you'll be able create users & groups, set up web apps and define policies.
Create users and groups
Add users individually, or bulk import many at one time. Create groups to match your business – by department, role, geography, other. Groups will allow you to set and manage web apps and policies.
Setup your web apps
Assign web apps to individuals or groups. Define how you want to manage logins for each app. With shared or admin controlled logins, your users get single-click access to their apps from within Silo, but usernames & passwords are kept hidden. This constrains access through Silo so your app is always secure and policies are enforced.
Define your policies
Silo has a range of policies to govern access rules, strong authentication, data transfer capabilities, time of day restrictions and more. Policies can be set at any level of your organization, allowing you to set global rules where they apply but define group or user specific rules where they don't.
Welcome your users
Send your users their Silo username which can be any unique ID including their LDAP credential or email address. You can pre-install the Silo app on their machines to launch from a desktop icon, or they can download the app directly from a website.
