San Ramon, CA, May 28, 2020 — Cyberinc, a pioneer in isolation-based cybersecurity solutions, is helping companies address remote work-related security issues with its flagship Isla Isolation Platform, which offers robust protection against ransomware, phishing and other Internet-based threats. Cyberinc Isla is particularly useful in safeguarding companies and their employees working from home, and enables businesses to maximize employee productivity while reducing operational overhead and business risk from prominent cyber threats.
The Isla platform enables businesses to provide security for remote employees against prominent threats like malvertising, phishing, credential theft, and ransomware, and maintain business continuity without negatively impacting the employee experience. Traditional technologies, such as VPNs, were originally intended for providing secure remote access to on-premise data centers but provide minimal value with growing cloud adoption and emerging remote workforce models.
Using a Zero Trust model, Isla eliminates a wide variety of threats and covers both unmanaged and managed endpoints through agentless deployment with standard browsers. To help organizations quickly benefit from the Isla Isolation Platform in addressing the new work-from-home model, Cyberinc is offering free use of the platform to companies and teams with up to 50 users, from now until August 31, 2020.

“Record numbers of employees are now working from home and connecting to their company’s cloud systems, oftentimes using unmanaged devices or bypassing the VPN due to scalability and productivity constraints. This puts organizations and their critical assets at tremendous risk,” said Samir Shah, CEO of Cyberinc. “VPNs were designed to support a small percentage of the workforce and they are limited in the security they provide, as they don’t protect against some of the most prominent threats to businesses today – such as ransomware and phishing. Browser isolation provides simple, safe and easy access to all employees, with robust protection against more than 90% of threats – whether employees use managed or unmanaged devices,” Shah said.
Browser Isolation: The New Backbone of Secure Business Communications
In a newly published SANS report “All Roads Lead to the Browser: A SANS Buyer’s Guide to Browser Isolation,” SANS Analyst Matt Bromiley says, “With browser isolation, you are focusing on one of the most prolific applications in your enterprise. By adding a layer of controlled security between the user and the browser—one that remains completely unknown to the user—you lower the attack surface through which the organization can be compromised. We’re not changing the concept of endpoint security; we’re changing what the endpoint is… Browser isolation should be an extension of your current security capabilities.”
Cyberinc’s Isla Isolation Platform neutralizes threats through browser isolation, a powerful technology that prevents breaches from occurring before they strike while also helping unburden IT and security teams and improving their efficiency and productivity. Isla is unique in its ability to quickly create a Zero Trust environment by securing all code, media objects, and scripts in a remote virtual browser, and transforming it into a stream of harmless pixels that are then rendered to each end device. Isla thereby proactively eliminates nearly all infections and compromises.
The Isla Isolation Platform offers protection against web, email, and document-based attacks by eliminating major threat vectors and reducing the organization’s attack surface. Additional benefits of the Cyberinc solution include:
- Security Before the Breach – Companies can stop threats before they become a breach and proactively get ahead of new threats.
- IT Productivity – Security and IT teams can stay ahead of attacks and focus on critical tasks instead of having to respond to burdensome alert storms.
- Broad Browser Support – Supports all major operating systems – such as Windows, Mac and Linux, as well as all major browsers.
- User Behavior and Threat Visibility – Isla’s rich dashboard provides insight into attack vectors, targeted users, and user behavior analytics.
- Acceptable Use Policy Enforcement – Enforce corporate and regulatory requirements with policy-based browsing controls and reporting.
- Multiple Deployment Models – Isla can be deployed as a cloud-delivered service or on-premise, as a physical or virtual appliance.
“We want to do our part and help companies facing work-from-home security issues by offering free use of our Isla platform for the next few months,” said Shah. “By using Isla to handle the blocking and tackling of critical threats before they cause damage, security teams can focus on other strategic issues while they continue to adjust to the new security and risk models posed by the growth in remote workers.”
