Combating endpoint management and security challenges in the COVID-19 eraDownload Infographic ✕
The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in many organizations shifting to a remote workforce. For those organizations that have already adopted software as a service (SaaS), working remotely is fairly simple. A browser and a good internet connection are all it takes to get work done. However, working from home has its fair share of challenges. The web is home to both distractions and malware alike. For many employees, sticking to a strict work routine is not an easy feat.
When users add extensions on their browsers to enhance their browsing experience, those extensions require permissions from the user to access various aspects of their browser. Once granted permission, many extensions can read the content present on any webpage the user visits, track browsing history, make changes to web content, and more.
With work-from-home policies blurring the lines between business and personal, browser extensions added for personal needs could be mining enterprise data as well. You can use Browser Security Plus' add-on management feature to keep track of the extensions installed on corporate devices, and remove the ones that are not required for business purposes.

Drive-by attacks are one of the most commonly used malware delivery methods. Cybercriminals identify unsecure websites and inject malicious code into them. When unsuspecting users land on such pages, malware is downloaded onto their system. These downloads often happen without any user interaction.
To prevent users from landing on harmful websites, be sure to enable safe browsing for Chrome and Firefox, and the SmartScreen filter for Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer. These features help ensure users don’t land on infected websites.
You can also use Browser Security Plus' web filter feature to restrict downloads to trusted websites. That way, even if users do land on malicious websites despite having safe browsing or the SmartScreen filter enabled, malicious downloads will still be blocked. Learn more!
Some organizations may have only just shifted to a SaaS-based environment, adopting new tools for working remotely. When employees are used to certain on-premises tools, it can be a challenge finding and using their new cloud-based tools. This would result in an increased number of help desk calls.
With Browser Security Plus, you can equip users with all the necessary web apps in the form of bookmarks. This way, mission-critical web apps are accessible to users on their browsers at the click of a button. Learn more!
