BEING A FINANCIAL ORGANIZATION we are committed and regulated for taking highly information security policies and solutions. Among many of them is the need to isolate the internet browser and web applications from the internal network. One of the main challenges in this area is that a new threat can appear any minute and traditional solutions like anti-virus, firewalls, sandboxes and other signature-based solutions are not sufficient. This is an endless battle against the “bad guys”. In Meytav Dash we needed a different solution to handle these known and unknown threats.
In 2014 we implemented Crusoe Security for isolating internet and web applications from our network. Crusoe can use any current desktop virtualization protocol (Microsoft RDS, Citrix HDX, VMware horizon) for this purpose and support any operation system and any browser.
In Meitav Dash we implemented Crusoe with Microsoft RDS protocol. Doing this we eliminated web attacks vectors while maintaining similar user experience to our employees.
The Crusoe solution is clientless and scalable for all the organization and handles files downloads and uploads, automatic URL redirection, single sign on and Flash/HTML ad blocking.
The Crusoe solution also helps us to defeat phishing and ransomware attacks. Malicious encryption code can’t access the internal network and suspicious links are also isolated.
Web Isolation was included in Gartner’s report for “Top 10 Technologies for information Security” considering “remote browsing” to keep off malware from end-user’s desktops and help the enterprise to significantly reduce the surface for attack.
I strongly believe in the concept and solution of Isolation. I estimate many organizations will follow and I invite them to ask us on the way we implemented it using Crusoe Security.
