Web Isolation

Prevent malware while allowing broad web access through the isolation of potentially risky traffic

Web isolation transforms all web content into a safe visual stream, protecting against threats by preventing any website delivered zero-day malware from ever reaching your devices. When combined with Symantec Secure Web Gateways, policies allow to isolate traffic from uncategorized sites or URLs with suspicious or potentially unsafe risk profiles.

Give Privileged Users Additional Protection From Web-Based Threats

Isolate web traffic of C-level executives and other critical users from the risk of the web

Certain user groups (e.g. IT, Finance) often have privileged access rights and represent a high risk if compromised. Isolation provides heightened security for these users, protecting their devices and their unique access to sensitive data and critical systems.

  • Isolate web browsing of privileged users, giving them the web access they need while ensuring their devices are protected
  • Provide users with a seamless web browsing experience
  • Supports all of their devices and no agent is required
  • Simple integration with Symantec Secure Web Gateways

Defeat Phishing Attacks by Rendering Email Links Harmless

Prevent credential theft and malware infections

Web Isolation protects against emails with links to malicious websites so they cannot deliver malware, ransomware and other advanced attacks. It also prevents users from submitting corporate credentials and other sensitive information to unknown and malicious websites by rendering pages in read-only mode.

  • Prevent users from submitting corporate passwords and sensitive information to malicious websites
  • Isolate malicious website links and prevent malware from reaching endpoints
  • Deliver a seamless browsing experience
  • Supports all devices without the need of an agent
  • Simple integration with Symantec Secure Web Gateways

Prevent Ransomware by Isolating URLs With Potentially Unsafe Risk Profiles

Ransomware is a fast growing tactic used by adversaries to infect devices, encrypt files and extort funds from organizations. It's frequently delivered through websites to unsuspecting users. By executing and rendering all content in a remote secure environment, Web Isolation eliminates the risk of ransomware by preventing any malicious content from ever reaching users' devices.

  • Eliminate ransomware infections from websites
  • Block ransomware using Flash or Java exploits
  • Integration with Symantec Secure Web Gateways makes traffic isolation simple to configure

Protect Sensitive Networks and Critical Infrastructure Systems by Creating "Air-Gapped" Networks

Security events impacting highly sensitive financial networks such as SWIFT, or critical infrastructure and operational technology (OT) environments, can have catastrophic consequences. Web isolation creates an "air-gap" protective barrier isolating web traffic for devices that have access to these critical networks, eliminating the potential of malware infections from web browsing.

  • Isolate web traffic of devices with access to sensitive networks, eliminating the threat of malware infection
  • No endpoint installation; supports all browsers, OS's and devices
  • Transparent and seamless web browsing experience
  • Access web documents through isolation; when download is required, inspect documents with threat prevention solutions like Symantec Content and Malware analysis
