Sounds great, right?
Every few years or so, OWASP, the Open Web Application Security Project, publishes a roundup of the Top 10 Web Application Security Risks. XSS is a perennial, evergreen entry. According to the foundation, “XSS allows attackers to execute scripts in the victim’s browser which can hijack user sessions, deface web sites, or redirect the user to malicious sites.” Attackers also use XSS to collect confidential information, login cookies and credentials. But XSS is just one of the threats floating around the web. Today, over 40% of breaches are initiated via web browsers, making browsing a top threat vector for enterprises.
Here at Ericom, we’ve developed Ericom Shield, a remote browser isolation solution that enables users to surf the web freely, without concern that an XSS attack or other web-based threat will penetrate their endpoint, and from there to a corporate network.
Download it now to see just how vulnerable the websites your users regularly visit are.
The Dangers of The Web
The web is riddled with threats and at each time a user browses, they may expose your organization to a host of risks. Each time they click a link, open an attachment or land on a website, they might be allowing attackers to gain a foothold into the organization—especially if they are browsing unknown, uncatalogued websites. Traditional tools like firewalls cannot stop unknown web-based threats especially without over-blocking to the point that it interferes with users’ work, and buries helpdesks in website access exception requests.
