Dell introduces Firefox-based Secure Browser

Uses application virtualisation technology to protect against security attacks

By CBR Staff Writer

Dell KACE has released its new Secure Browser tool that uses application virtualisation technology to provide an isolated instance of Firefox to secure Internet browsing.

The company said that its new technology provides users with a virtual instance of an Internet browser application. By running the browser in a virtual instance, the browser and any activity resulting from its use are separated from the endpoint keeping the actual computer and operating system free of changes that would normally occur.

Fully contained from the operating system, changes made via browser activity are kept separated and cleared with a single click. Optional white and black list entries enables to limit sites that a user may visit and applications the browser is permitted to launch.

Dell KACE said that its new tool can be centrally deployed and managed when used with K1000 Management Appliance. It introduces a installation package that includes the Firefox browser along with Adobe Reader and Flash plug-ins pre-installed.

Rob Meinhardt, co-founder and president of Dell KACE, said: "Internet browsing is one of the number one sources for malware. With the Dell KACE Secure Browser, we stop malware at its source and trap it, and even provide granular control over browser activity."
