Fireglass Emerges From Stealth with a Military-Grade, Enterprise-Ready Threat Isolation Platform to Put an End to Security Challenges
Israeli cybersecurity startup ignites interest from Fortune 500 companies for non-compromising, future-proof solution
New York, NY. – Feb 10, 2016 – Fireglass unveils today its unprecedented enterprise network security solution that isolates and eliminates web attack vectors while maintaining a seamless user experience. By providing a clientless, scalable solution coupled with a short, hassle-free deployment, Fireglass has received attention from Fortune 500 companies as well as leading financial services and healthcare providers – who deployed the Fireglass Threat Isolation Platform to successfully eradicate attacks coming through malicious sources including websites, emails and documents.
Built by a world-class team of experts in network security and military intelligence veterans, Fireglass is the only enterprise-grade isolation platform that eliminates all web attack surfaces of both users and web applications.
“Fireglass has delivered a game-changing isolation platform that offers enterprises an effective means for battling with today’s unprecedented volume of evolving cyber threats,” said Ziv Maor, CISO at Cellcom Israel, a leading Telco provider. “By isolating all web attack surfaces, Fireglass solution is used to eliminate all known and unknown threats, and it does so at great scale with a seamless user experience, and while simplifying and reducing IT security operations and costs.”
Traditional security solutions, including signature-based detection, Secure Web Gateways (SWGs) and sandboxes, rely on the ability to tell good from bad, an approach proven to be ineffective in keeping threats at bay. Fireglass assumes all web content and activities are risky, and acts as an air gap between users and web applications to completely eliminate threats.
“It’s no secret cyber attackers are upping their game and succeeding in finding vulnerabilities within enterprises’ security measures, but our technology puts an end to organizations’ security fears,” said Guy Guzner, Fireglass Founder and CEO. “Our enterprise customers leverage the Fireglass Threat Isolation Platform to protect their employees against everything from phishing and Advanced Persistent Threats (APT) to known and unknown vulnerabilities and to protect their applications from threats such as cross-site scripting, SQL injections and data loss through compromised users. As a result of Fireglass minimizing malware remediation efforts and alerts coming from other solutions, our customers alleviate the high burden their security teams are suffering from.”
Delivered as a cloud-based solution or deployed on-premises, Fireglass contains all potentially malicious content on its isolation platform using its patented Transparent Clientless Rendering technology. It then delivers a risk-free visual feed of the rendered content to the end user. Through this, Fireglass isolates all content and provides a truly future-proof solution for all known and unknown threats and malware including phishing, drive-by downloads, watering-hole and ransomware. In addition to protecting end users from threats coming through the web, Fireglass also isolates web applications from automated attacks, scripting tools, zero-day vulnerabilities and malicious or compromised users.
Fireglass recently announced a Series A funding round of $20 million, which includes Lightspeed Venture Partners, Norwest Venture Partners, Singtel Innov8, and Trusteer co-founders Mickey Boodaei and Rakesh Loonkar.
The Fireglass Threat Isolation platform requires no endpoint installation and supports any browser (Chrome, IE, Firefox, Safari, Edge), any OS (Windows, Linux, MacOS, iOS) and any device (desktop, laptop, tablet and smartphone). Additionally, it is offered as a public cloud service or a virtual appliance with linear scale for on-premises deployment. The company is set to exhibit at RSA Conference 2016 in San Francisco, February 29 – March 4.
