Your Cybersecurity Toolkit
Minimizing security threats is critical today as your organization increasingly accesses the web. The web is one of the greatest vectors for cyber attacks like ransomware and malware, next to email. Web security is challenging because the way that we utilize the web constantly changes. Hackers have grown sophisticated and are always finding new ways to deploy attacks. They frequently use both email and web channels together, creating the demand for security tools that address both threats. At Aurora, we can help evaluate which web security solution best meets your specific cybersecurity goals.
Types of Web Security Solutions
A web gateway is a frequently recommended web security solution. It provides an organization with more secure internet access, aiding in minimizing the risk of cyber threats. Web gateways are used as a barrier that keeps unauthorized traffic from accessing an organization. It stands between incoming and outgoing traffic to monitor the connection. It will only allow a connection to be created with websites that appear to be legitimate and secure. This helps to prevent users from accidentally accessing malicious websites that otherwise seem legitimate. Many malicious websites are so professionally designed that users are tricked into giving away their credit cards or other personal information. Web security solutions are used to block such personal information from reaching malicious websites. Web filters will block known websites that go against an organization’s internet use policies. By implementing necessary measures, solutions can reduce the chance of threats like malware affecting your organization while users access the web.
Data loss prevention (DLP) tools can also be used to protect data while users navigate the web. A DLP is used to protect data at rest, data in use, and data in motion. This includes but isn’t limited to the data on the web and over email. DLP can be a key cybersecurity tool to add to your cybersecurity portfolio.
Web Isolation, or browser isolation, is another web security solution that is frequently recommended. It isolates web activity in one environment, protecting the rest of the computer from being infected with malware if it were to come from the web. By isolating any threats from the web in one place, it keeps the rest of the user’s device safe.
Web & Email Security
Web security and email security work well together as they are both essential components of a well-rounded security portfolio. An email gateway helps prevent malicious emails from infecting users with malware when they access their email. Conducting regular phishing trainings and other security awareness trainings can also minimize the risk of email threats. When employees know how to detect a phishing attack, they will be less likely to click on links that could infect your organization with malware.
