ManageEngine launches browser management solution

In News

ManageEngine launched Browser Security Plus, a browser management solution can secure multiple browsers — such as Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Microsoft’s Internet Explorer and Edge that helps organizations secure their corporate data in the cloud and protect their networks from web-based cyberattacks.

Available immediately, Browser Security Plus provides organizations with a layer of management capabilities for browsers and their add-ons to maintain robust enterprise security. This allows enterprises to improve network health by preventing, detecting and fixing any browser vulnerabilities.

“For the longest time, browsers have been considered just another application. With cloud applications pivoting the way business is done, browsers have become endpoints in and of themselves, capable of achieving functionalities of a number of native applications put together,” said Mathivanan Venkatachalam, vice president of ManageEngine. “By managing browsers the same way they manage endpoints like desktops and mobile devices, enterprises can seal their network from possible attacks at its most used threshold.”

Cyberhygiene Practices Implemented in Browser Security Plus

Compliance: IT teams can set rules required by their organization and also monitor for compliance with Security Technical Implementation Guidelines (STIG) and industry security standards predefined by the Center for Internet Security (CIS).

Policy deployment: Browser configurations are intelligently grouped into policies that address specific requirements such as threat defense and data leakage prevention.

Add-on management: IT teams can provide and revoke access to browser add-ons like extensions and plug-ins based on their reliability and also silently push mission-critical extensions to computers from a central repository.

Browser isolation: Trusted websites and business applications are segregated from their untrusted counterparts. Untrusted sites are rendered in a virtual browser to ensure enterprise data remains secure.

Browser Security Plus covers all critical aspects of securing a browser — from obtaining visibility, enforcing security policies, and controlling access to ensuring compliance with enforced policies. The company also plans to extend its browser management capabilities to macOS, followed by other operating systems in the near future.
