McAfee and Ericom Team up to Deliver Protected, Remote Isolated Web Browsing

Ericom Shield Now Integrates with McAfee Web Gateway to Provide a Comprehensive Security Solution Helping Prevent Web-Borne Malware, Ransomware and Other Threats

Closter, N.J., (April 18, 2018) -  Ericom Software, a global leader in securing and connecting the unified digital workspace, today announced the integration of Ericom Shield Remote Browser Isolation (RBI) solution with McAfee Web Gateway (MWG). The collaboration between Ericom and McAfee combines the latest advances in remote browsing technology with McAfee’s industry-leading web security solution to provide comprehensive protection against web-borne malware, ransomware and other threats, while ensuring safer and more productive web browsing,reducing the risk of human errors, malicious links and harmful downloads.

Deployed on-premises or in the cloud, MWG brings together web filtering, content inspection, antivirus, data loss prevention and other capabilities for enterprise scale web traffic protection. Working in concert with MWG, Ericom Shield adds another layer of defense-in-depth security to Internet web browsing by:

  • Accepting redirection of uncategorized and lesser-known websites from MWG using the Internet Content Adaption Protocol (ICAP) 
  • Executing these sites in an isolated virtual browser, remote from organizational networks, such that no active browser-executable code runs on the endpoint 
  • Launching a dedicated, hardened Linux container for each browsing session, which is destroyed shortly after the session ends or times out, preventing malware from persisting 
  • Obfuscating the web content as a visual stream that is safely displayed by the local browser via McAfee Web Gateway, for a transparent, interactive and more secure browsing experience

“As the threat landscape continues to evolve and grow, it has become more difficult to identify and block potentially risky web traffic in real-time without limiting access to critical online resources which could impact business operations and user productivity” said D.J. Long , Vice President, Strategic Business Development at McAfee. “The integration and  layered approach allows for more secure, frictionless access to the Internet, while helping to protect against advanced threats spread by web browsing.” 

Eran Heyman, Founder and Chief Architect of Ericom Software, said, “The collaboration with McAfee delivers clear value for our mutual customers, allowing them to benefit from the deep portfolio of McAfee security solutions in conjunction with the unique strengths of isolation. We are confident that the integrated solution offers business users a very high level of threat protection when browsing the web, while providing a seamless user experience for both users and security professionals.” Added Heyman, “Working with a recognized security leader like McAfee allows us to expand the reach of remote browsing technology (RBI), enabling more organizations to take maximum advantage of the web while protecting critical infrastructure and user endpoints alike.”
