Isolation Technology: Does Your Organization Need One?

Securing a complex network landscape in IT organizations is becoming increasingly difficult. Though cybersecurity professionals are ensuring privacy protections, many employees are still witnessing ransomware, identity theft, data breaches, and other cyberattacks. Organizations are struggling to find a solution to keep their data and systems safe from cyber threats. In this article at TechRepublic, Jonathan Greig explains why business leaders opt for isolation technology to protect their organizations against the internet’s biggest threats.

Isolation: The Future of Cybersecurity

With the advancement in virtualization, isolation has proved to block all malware attacks without the need to detect, recognize the signature, or understand the attack. According to experts, isolation technology can be implemented in two places – on the client web browser (where 80% of malware gets into the enterprise), and on the servers in the data center (where valuable and confidential data resides).

One of the significant benefits of isolation security is its ability to contain any potentially malicious activity in a secure environment. The actions run in a virtualized machine that has no interaction with endpoint devices. Thus, isolation technology isolates the cyber environment from the network entirely. For instance, “every click on the email link ends up getting isolated in the cloud so that if a link ends up triggering a drive-by or a phishing attempt, isolation keeps the endpoint safe,” says Jonathan.

Should You Implement Isolation Technology?

Well, the web browser is an essential part of day-to-day operations for many organizations today, especially when the majority of the workforce is working remotely. Users are vulnerable to threats when using the internet. By implementing isolation technology, you can ensure that even if attacked, all risks are contained, and the data and assets are not put at risk.

Many cybersecurity experts believe that isolation will become a fundamental part of security strategies over the next decade. To learn more about isolation technology, click on https://www.forbes.com/sites/tomgillis/2016/02/02/the-future-of-security-isolation/#679b9d3129f5.
