For years, attackers have weaponized websites and leveraged cloud applications to introduce a wide range of threats, including phishing and malware-laced phishing emails that can compromise credential information, result in loss of confidential information, and lead to catastrophic data breaches. In fact, malicious URLs now outnumber malicious attachments more than 5:1.
Every day, threat actors attempt to infiltrate your organization with advanced attacks by going after users who click on things they shouldn't, whether they arrive via corporate email, personal webmail, or a watering hole style attack. When your people engage in personal browsing or webmail on corporate devices, they introduce risk to your organization, both from potentially compromised endpoints and accounts as well as data loss. Many of these malicious URLs even leverage legitimate file sharing services that your users already know and trust.
Leveraging Web Isolation
Organizations need a new approach to mitigate these risks while balancing employees' needs for productivity. Thankfully, web isolation has arrived to do just that. Web isolation and email isolation permits users to browse the web or click on emailed links as they usually would but opens potentially malicious content in an isolated container rather than on the user's endpoint.
For a deep dive into Browser and Email Isolation technology, join Proofpoint's expert Eric Schwake for our on-demand webinar as he discusses:
- The benefits of adopting email and web isolation to protect both personal browsing and webmail
- How to take a people-centric approach to browser and email security to protect your most vulnerable or highly attacked users
- A cost/benefit analysis of using web isolation for URL exception handling
