Browsers have become a gateway for security breaches. Whether it's data theft or targeted ransomware attacks, browsers are being used by cybercriminals as the point of contact to attack organizations. On noticing this trend, browser vendors are coming up with their own set of security precautions that should be enabled to protect end users from such threats. These security settings are available under different names and are provided at different places for each browser, which makes discovering these settings and their intended purposes a bit of a challenge, especially if end users have deadlines to meet in their daily work.
Note: Browser security configurations can be deployed to Google Chrome, Microsoft Internet Explorer and Edge, including the all new version of Edge browser.
Browser Security Plus offers three different sets of policies to address the above challenge:
Each of these policies is a collection of browser settings and configurations provided by Chrome, Internet Explorer, Edge, and Firefox browsers brought together in order to cater to specific requirements. This gives IT administrators the option to deploy security policies to different browsers in various computers as needed, all from one place. Once these settings have been configured and deployed to a computer from Browser Security Plus, end users won't be able to make changes to the settings. This ensures that recommended security settings are always enabled on the end users' computers.
Deploy data security policy to ensure Data Leakage Prevention. You can manage passwords, disable autofill option, ensure that users can't delete the browser history, prevent third-party cookies from being saved and so much more.
Threat prevention policy helps IT administrators rest assured that the computers are safe from web-based threats. IT admins can enable safe browsing for Chrome browser and Smart Screen filter for Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer. These two settings shield users from websites containing malicious programs imbedded in them and driveby attacks.
Browser customizations, on the other hand, enhance the browsing experience for the end users. IT admins can enable or disable images or audio, set a desired homepage, deploy bookmarks remotely, and much more.
