ManageEngine Strengthens Endpoint Security with the Launch …


LONDON–()–ManageEngine,
the real-time IT management company, today announced its launch of Browser
Security Plus
, a browser management solution that helps
organisations secure their corporate data in the cloud and protect their
networks from web-based cyberattacks. Available immediately, Browser
Security Plus provides organisations with a layer of management
capabilities for browsers and their add-ons to maintain robust
enterprise security. This allows enterprises to improve network health
by preventing, detecting and fixing any browser vulnerabilities.

Customers can get a live demonstration of Browser Security Plus at the
inaugural ManageEngine
User Conference 2018
in London, Sept. 18-19, at the Hilton London
Metropole.

As modern web, portable computing devices, and other technologies have
enabled employees to work from anywhere, there’s been a surge in cloud
adoption among organisations, and browsers have evolved to be silent
entry points for accessing corporate data. According to Statista,
browsers have accounted for 23.47 percent of exploit attacks in 2018 as
of Q1. This has a serious impact on enterprise security, as attackers
leverage unsecured browsers and web applications to create lasting
business repercussions.

Addressing this evolving need, ManageEngine has developed a
comprehensive browser management solution that can secure multiple
browsersi — such as Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and
Microsoft’s Internet Explorer and Edge — used in Windows environments,
as 88.18 percent of desktops worldwide run on Windows, according to Net
Market Share
.

“For the longest time, browsers have been considered just another
application. With cloud applications pivoting the way business is done,
browsers have become endpoints in and of themselves, capable of
achieving functionalities of a number of native applications put
together,” said Mathivanan Venkatachalam, vice president of
ManageEngine. “By managing browsers the same way they manage endpoints
like desktops and mobile devices, enterprises can seal their network
from possible attacks at its most used threshold.”

Cyberhygiene Practices Implemented in Browser Security Plus

Compliance: IT teams can set rules required by their organisation
and also monitor for compliance with Security Technical Implementation
Guidelines (STIG) and industry security standards predefined by the
Center for Internet Security (CIS).

Policy deployment: Browser configurations are intelligently
grouped into policies that address specific requirements such as threat
defence and data leakage prevention.

Add-on management: IT teams can provide and revoke access to
browser add-ons like extensions and plug-ins based on their reliability
and also silently push mission-critical extensions to computers from a
central repository.

Browser isolation: Trusted websites and business applications are
segregated from their untrusted counterparts. Untrusted sites are
rendered in a virtual browser to ensure enterprise data remains secure.

Browser Security Plus covers all critical aspects of securing a browser
— from obtaining visibility, enforcing security policies, and
controlling access to ensuring compliance with enforced policies. The
company also plans to extend its browser management capabilities to
macOS, followed by other operating systems in the near future.

i Browser market share for multiple browsers according to Net
Market Share: Google Chrome 63.37 percent, Firefox 10.62 percent,
Microsoft Internet Explorer 13.46 percent and Edge 4.86 percent

User Conference Highlights

In addition to the launch of Browser Security Plus, ManageEngine’s
two-day conference will cover the company’s broad portfolio of products
and will feature product training sessions, one-on-one sessions with
product experts, and product road maps.

ManageEngine is also recognizing two of its regional partners in the
United Kingdom for their significant contribution to company’s growth
and brand presence in the region. Wanstor Limited will be awarded MSP
Partner of the Year 2017-18, and set3 Solutions will be awarded
Technology Partner of the Year 2017-18.

With business growth of 37 percent in the last 12 months and projected
growth of about 40 percent by the end of 2018, ManageEngine’s plan is to
strengthen its base in the UK markets.

“We see a huge opportunity in the market, given the fact that IT
departments have the potential to influence business decisions,” said
Arun Kumar J, regional director of sales at ManageEngine. “With digital
transformation in place, organisations will need to align their business
teams with IT, which makes ManageEngine an ideal candidate to help
catalyse this change.”

Apart from training sessions, customers can learn more about the
company’s R&D pipeline, channel strategies, and plans to invest in new
technologies.
