Ericom Shield Wins CyberSecurity Breakthrough Award for Its Isolation-based Email Security Service

Cloud-Delivered Zero Trust Browser Isolation Service Recognized for Protecting Organizations Against Email Threats such as Ransomware and Phishing Attacks

New York, NY (October 14, 2020) – Ericom Software, a leader in secure web and application access solutions, today announced that Ericom Shield has been recognized as a CyberSecurity Breakthrough award winner for the “Hosted Email Security Solution of the Year” category.

CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards is the information security industry’s most comprehensive program designed to recognize the top companies, products, technical innovation, and people in the cybersecurity industry. All award entries were evaluated by an independent panel of information security experts.

Because email continues to be the top threat vector for cyberattacks against organization’s networks, protecting endpoints and networks from hackers who send emails with malicious URLs and infected attachments is a top priority for corporate leadership and IT teams. Equally important is the prevention of credential theft, which is growing at an alarming rate. Phishing emails have proven to be a highly effective means of stealing IDs and passwords for cloud apps and internal systems, resulting in data theft, system disruption, and more.

The Ericom Shield zero trust remote browser isolation solution prevents phishing attacks, ransomware, and advanced web threats from reaching user endpoints by executing active web content in a remote, isolated cloud-based container. Whether users browse to a malicious site independently or by clicking a URL embedded in a phishing email, they are completely safe since web content is never executed directly on devices. Ericom Shield sends only safe rendering information from the website to a device’s browser, providing a safe, fully interactive, seamless user experience.

Websites launched from URLs in emails can be rendered in read-only mode to prevent users from entering credentials for additional phishing protection. Attached files are sanitized before being transmitted to endpoints, ensuring that malware within downloads cannot compromise users’ devices.

“Ericom’s zero trust remote browser isolation solution can be deployed to enhance email security and safeguard organizations from advanced email threats such as ransomware and phishing attacks,” said David Canellos, President and CEO of Ericom Software. The recognition that Ericom Shield received by the CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards panel of cybersecurity experts further validates our efforts and highlights the impact we are having on protecting organizations.”
