Symantec acquires Fireglass to gain agentless isolation solution

By

Symantec has acquired Israel-based Fireglass, a leading agentless isolation solution that eliminates ransomware, malware and phishing threats in real-time by preventing potentially harmful content from reaching user endpoints or the corporate network.

Fireglass is delivered as a cloud service, on-premises, or in a hybrid model. Its approach to browser isolation (sometimes referred to as containerisation) substantially reduces the attack surface, strengthening an enterprise’s security posture and reduces the burden on the company’s security operation centre and IT helpdesk.

Users are protected regardless of the links they click or the uncategorised websites they visit, as all potentially harmful website and email content and attachments are executed within a fully protected and separate environment, eliminating the most common infiltration points for ransomware, exploits and malware.

Guy Guzner, founder and chief executive of Fireglass, said, “We’ve long admired Symantec for their leadership in protecting customers’ critical information. Our industry-leading isolation technology helps customers battle zero-day attacks and other serious vulnerabilities, making it an essential element for protecting email, messaging and Web browsing.

“It easily integrates with existing security solutions and across all forms of the endpoint including Windows, Mac, Android, iOS and all others including browser-enabled IoT devices. With Symantec’s global scale, we’re excited to bring this ground-breaking technology into the hands of more customers.”

Greg Clark, Symantec chief executive, said, “Integrating Fireglass isolation technology with Symantec’s existing endpoint, email and secure web gateway solutions could reduce security events by as much as 70%, while virtually eliminating advanced threats spread by web browsing or email content.”

According to Gartner,  isolation will become a core component in the design of cyber defence architectures for the cloud generation who face the reality of an encrypted Internet and the crisis inherent in email and web-delivered attacks.
