Iboss protects web sessions with remote browser isolation
Platform enhancements protect users and sensitive data
Cloud security company iboss has launched three new features to its software-as-a-service (SaaS)-based network security platform, including a new remote browser isolation capability that protects native browsers on high-risk sites.
The remote browser isolation feature activates when users access sites the iboss security platform categorizes as high risk. The feature isolates web traffic between the user and that site using a remote session outside the user's native web browser.
The company said the remote browser isolation feature could secure access to sensitive data in services like Box, Dropbox, and Salesforce from unmanaged endpoints. It also lets users view files without downloading them.
iboss has extended its cloud access security broker (CASB) functionality with an application programming interface (API) that lets the service examine files stored in major cloud services.
This file-examination feature, which currently integrates with Box, Google, and Microsoft 365, generates a list of the files stored in each cloud service to give administrators a clear picture of what data users store on third-party cloud services. It also allows them to test the files for malware and ensure they comply with the platform's data loss prevention (DLP) settings, flagging the file and the user who stored it if there's a problem.
The third addition is a set of additional controls over cloud applications, including Azure, AWS EC2, and GitHub. Administrators can configure triggers to instigate events based on user actions, including blocking access to forbidden sites and applications. This product's CASB controls cover Google applications, including YouTube and Google Drive, and administrators can apply them on a per-user or per-group basis.
The iboss cloud platform secures user connections to cloud services, enabling them to connect directly via a cloud-based gateway rather than tunneling back to company headquarters via a VPN.
