The problem many organizations have is that their browsers are the single biggest source of malware, ransomware and web based cyberattacks and their current security tools have proven to be incapable at protecting their employees. Gartner estimates that 98% of external information security attacks are carried over the public internet and that 80% of these attacks are targeted directly at end users through their browsers as they use the internet, with anti-virus and firewalls unable to prevent these attacks.
The WEBGAP model was developed to solve this problem by physically isolating your users web browsers, along with the associated cyber risks, away from your local machines, network and infrastructure. By placing a WEBGAP between your users and the malware, you shut down the most common attack vector and dramatically enhance your overall cybersecurity posture in the process. The WEBGAP model provides internet piece of mind and lets you focus your efforts on the remaining vulnerabilities.
The WEBGAP browser isolation model leverages the principal of security through physical isolation and is a model that is currently used in production environments by tens of thousands of real users at high security federal government facilities. We know this because our founding team spent the last eight years working with the US federal government at Lawrence Livermore and Sandia National Laboratories building browser isolation platforms for thousands of federal government employees.
The browser isolation cybersecurity model considered to be best practice by Gartner, who recommend browser isolation (or remote browsing as they sometimes call it) as the most effective way for an enterprise to reduce web based cyberattacks against your users. Because of this, Gartner predicts that over the next three years, 50% of enterprises will actively begin to isolate their internet browsing to reduce the impact of cyber attacks against their organizations.
