Ericom Shield Selected as a Finalist for Best Endpoint Security Solution by SC Awards Europe 2020
Ericom Shield's Zero Trust Remote Browser Isolation Technology Protects Endpoints from Web-Based Threats and Phishing Attacks
New York, NY (March 31, 2020)– Ericom Software, a leader in secure web and application access solutions, today announced that Ericom Shield is an SC Awards Europe 2020 Excellence Award finalist for the Best Endpoint Security Solution category.
The Excellence Awards honors information security products and services in the industry. Jurors looked at cybersecurity solutions, the security problems they solve, their market penetration, functionality, manageability, ease of use, scalability, customer service/support and more. Although the live ceremony has been cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, winners will be announced online in June via the SC Awards website and Twitter.
The Ericom Shield zero trust remote browser isolation solution is being recognized for its ability to completely prevent web-based threats and phishing attacks from infecting endpoints by rendering active web content in a remote, isolated container.
When a user browses to a site or clicks a URL, Ericom Shield renders all website content in a virtual browser located in the cloud. A safe media stream representing the website is sent to the browser on the endpoint, providing a fully interactive 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. Attachments from websites are sanitized before being transmitted to endpoints, ensuring that malware within downloads cannot compromise user devices.
“Hackers are becoming increasingly aggressive in finding ways to compromise organization’s endpoints, recently going as far as executing phishing attacks using COVID-19-related content lure employees into engaging,” said David Canellos, President and CEO of Ericom Software. “Ericom’s zero trust remote browser isolation solution secures users, even those now working from home because of recent office closures, from sophisticated phishing threats and other web-based attacks. We are proud of SC Media UK’s recognition of our solution and the impact it is having for our enterprise customers.”
