HERNDON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Ntrepid Corporation, a provider of cutting-edge cyber security solutions, today announced its secure enterprise browser, Passages, won the Silver award for Innovation in Enterprise Security and the Gold award for Innovation in Next Generation Security at the 2016 Info Security Global Excellence Awards. Ntrepid was presented with the awards last night during a gala that honored all winners for their advanced, ground-breaking products and solutions that are helping set the bar higher for others in all areas of security and technology.
“The majority of undetected attacks come through the web because browsers are uniquely vulnerable and conventional malware detection and firewalls are never going to be able to prevent malware from reaching your computer or network. Passages works from the assumption that your browser is infected and isolates then destroys the malware when the browser session is ended,” explained Richard Helms, Founder and Chief Executive at Ntrepid. “It is inevitable that users are going to visit malicious websites, or click on bad links, often without even knowing. The need for a secure browser that isolates the user from all attacks, rendering them ineffective, is paramount. We are pleased to receive this award from Info Security as recognition for the ability of Passages to protect users.”
Passages represents a fundamentally new approach to protecting against the malware and targeted attacks that fill today’s web-based world. Instead of vainly trying to identify and block dangerous parts of the web, Passages enables businesses to safely browse anywhere – providing the freedom to surf online without the risk of infecting their machines or compromising valuable enterprise data. Passages further enhances the safety of web browsing by protecting the identity of the user; significantly reducing the ability of adversaries to conduct targeted attacks – all while providing the complete functionality that users expect from a traditional web browser. Using Passages as the default method for Internet browsing, Passages isolates the web session allowing the user the ability to be on the web, watch and download videos, music, and files of all types, as well as print without compromising their machine.
Our focus is making all of this work in a secure, affordable package that provides a great user experience without the need for special training.
Passages provides a secure virtual browser that protects the enterprise from all web-based attacks, including web-delivered malware, watering hole attacks, spear phishing, passive information leakage, and drive-by downloads. Passages isolates all browsing activity from the local computer and network, allowing users to access any website and follow any link without risk to the company’s infrastructure or data. Additionally, Passages hides user identity and corporate affiliation, significantly reducing the ability of adversaries to conduct targeted social engineering attacks.
Leveraging Ntrepid Corporation’s platform and 15-year history of protecting the national security community from the world’s most sophisticated opponents, Passages allows organizations to implement security at the speed of business. From corporate identity management to secure browsing, Ntrepid products empower enterprise online research and data collection, eliminating threats to an online workforce.
