Leading Telecommunication Provider Deploys Fireglass’ True Isolation™ Technology to Eliminate Malware and Phishing
Company mitigated all web borne threats and consolidated web gateways while significantly reducing security cost and operational overhead.
New York, NY. – March 29, 2017 – Fireglass, the leading agentless isolation platform, today announced that an international cellular provider serving millions of subscribers is leveraging Fireglass Threat Isolation Platform to protect thousands of its employees from malware, ransomware and other web-borne attacks while providing unrestricted web access.
Fireglass’ award-winning True Isolation™ technology breaks barriers by completely eliminating malware and phishing from web and email while providing a seamless user experience. Fireglass’ agentless solution executes web sessions remotely and prevents any web content from reaching and infecting endpoints. Delivered as a cloud service or on-premise, Fireglass augments existing security architectures to provide secure web access even to risky and uncategorized websites, while minimizing security overhead from complex web access policies, support tickets and alerts.
The cellular provider deployed Fireglass’ agentless solution on-premises and in the cloud to protect employees at the office and while on the road. Due to Fireglass’ robust enterprise-grade capabilities, the company has also replaced and consolidated its outdated web gateways which were not effective in protecting against threats delivered through uncategorized and risky websites or through malicious documents downloaded through the browser.
“It’s rare to find a security solution that actually mitigates an entire attack vector,” the telco’s CISO said. “Fireglass allowed us to eliminate the entire web attack surface and protect against even the most advanced web-borne threats including zero-day and ransomware.”
The Fireglass Threat Isolation platform assumes any web traffic can be malicious and therefore executes and renders all web sessions remotely, delivering to users’ browsers a 100% safe visual stream. The company’s True Isolation™ technology ensures no web resources ever reach endpoints while providing users with a native browsing experience.
“We’re seeing more and more enterprises choosing our platform after coming to the realization that conventional web gateways are unable to keep up with the latest threats,” said Guy Guzner, Fireglass’ CEO and co-founder. “Our isolation platform is deployed at various Fortune 500 companies across several industries, providing the highest level of security while at the same time enabling employees to do their jobs without constraining policies.”
The Fireglass platform also helped the cellular provider minimize security operational overhead. The company simplified web access policies, mitigated all web access support tickets, as it no longer needed to block uncategorized sites, and minimized security alerts and investigations.
Fireglass allows users to click with confidence from any device by eliminating malware and phishing from web and email with no endpoint agent. Organizations protected by Fireglass maximize user productivity while solving the operational overhead and complexity of web gateways through True Isolation™, where all web traffic is executed remotely and does not reach endpoints. Deployed at Fortune 500 companies, Fireglass was founded by network security leaders and military intelligence veterans and is backed by world-class investors including Lightspeed Venture Partners and Norwest Venture Partners.
