San Francisco, CA, (March 6, 2019) – Ericom Software, a leading global provider of solutions for securing and connecting the unified workspace, today announced that Osaki Computer Engineering Co., Ltd. (OCE), a provider of IT solutions in Japan, has launched a cloud-based secure browsing service powered by Ericom Shield. Leveraging Ericom’s remote browser isolation (RBI) technology, OCE’s solution addresses a growing need among Japanese organizations to isolate their internal networks and endpoint devices from the Internet, a policy commonly known as Internet separation.
“Internet separation is an extremely effective way to block cyberattacks, as it eliminates a major attack vector that could otherwise be used to breach the organization’s network,” explained Kurayoshi Nakao, Chief of Data Center Promotion Section at OCE. “We needed a solution that would allow us to deliver a secure browsing service that could flexibly address each client’s unique needs and environment.”
By providing secure browsing as a service, OCE enables customers to comply with internet separation mandates without the capital expense and ongoing effort involved in installing, operating and maintaining on-premise solutions. The OCE Tokyo Data Center is directly connected to an internet exchange, so cloud-based secure browsing is a natural value-added service offering for OCE and serves as an important competitive differentiator.
“Many endpoint security solutions significantly hinder user productivity by restricting access to critical web-based applications and resources,” said Ilan Paretsky, at Ericom Software. “By offering Ericom Shield as a cloud-based service, OCE can provide organizations with an ultra-secure browsing experience without preventing users from accessing business-critical web-based applications and resources.”
Ericom Shield executes all web content in disposable containers located in a remote isolated environment. Users interact with websites via a safe media stream that is sent to their browser and provides a natural, seamless and fully interactive browsing experience, while ensuring that no web content comes in contact with endpoints or organizational networks.
“All of the other products we looked at and tested lacked decisive advantages. When I found Ericom Shield I thought, ‘This is just what I’ve been looking for!’,” commented Takurou Yashima of OCE’s Data Center Management Department.
Ericom is showcasing Ericom Shield at the RSA Conference 2019 in San Francisco on March 4-8. RSA attendees can visit Ericom Software at Booth #6574 in the North Expo.
