Isolate and Sanitize Documents

Fireglass Threat Isolation Platform eliminates the risks from malicious files. Documents (docx, xlsx, pptx, pdf) are isolated on the Fireglass platform and users can access documents without download . Additionally, Fireglass scans and sanitizes files to remove any exploitable content prior to download. Users download sanitized files without any malicious active content (e.g. macros, scripts). Organizations can finally use file sharing applications to exchange information with 3rd parties and access webmail attachments securely.
Highlights:
  • Access documents without downloading and eliminate risk of malware
  • Download sanitized files without any malicious active content
  • Control file download through policy
  • Transparent and seamless user experience
  • Does not require any endpoint installation
  • Supports all browsers, OS’s and devices

Remove Flash and Java from Endpoints

All Flash and Java content is executed remotely on the Fireglass platform without risking users with malicious active content running on the endpoint. Users are delivered a native experience without having Flash or Java installed on their browser. Fireglass provides virtual patching for browsers and alleviates security’s burden of constantly and rapidly deploying endless security patches.
Highlights:
  • Eliminate Java or Flash from endpoints
  • Prevent all Java or Flash exploits
  • Provide virtual patching for browsers
  • Supports all browsers, OS’s and devices
  • Alleviate patching burden
  • Transparent and seamless user experience

Highlights:
  • Prevent users from submitting corporate passwords and sensitive information to malicious web sites
  • Isolate malicious web site links and prevent malware from reaching endpoints
  • Transparent and seamless user experience
  • Does not require any endpoint installation
  • Supports all browsers, OS’s and devices

Eliminate Ransomware

Ransomware is a fast growing tactic used by adversaries to infect devices, encrypt files and extort funds from organizations in exchange to the decryption keys. Ransomware is often delivered through websites and documents to unsuspecting users. By executing and rendering all content in a remote secure environment, the Fireglass Threat Isolation Platform eliminates the risk of ransomware by preventing any malicious content from ever reaching users’ devices.
Highlights:
  • Eliminate ransom infections from websites or files
  • Block all ransomware using Flash or Java exploits
  • Transparent and seamless user experience
  • Does not require any endpoint installation
  • On premise or cloud deployment

Block Malware C&C and RAT Communication from Infected Devices

Fireglass’ granular visibility allows to differentiate between legitimate and non-legitimate traffic. The Fireglass platform blocks in real-time both malware C&C communication trying to exfiltrate data and Remote Access Trojans (RAT) trying to take control over devices.
Highlights:
  • Detect and neutralize malware on infected devices
  • Prevent data exfiltration by malware
  • Block Remote Access Trojans (RAT)
  • Does not require any endpoint installation
  • On premise or cloud deployment

Privileged User Access

Sensitive user groups (e.g. IT, Finance) often have privileged access rights and impose high risk if compromised. Fireglass can be deployed to isolate designated user groups from malicious content and eliminate the risk for these groups.
Highlights:
  • Eliminate the risk of malware
  • Supports all browsers, OS’s and devices
  • Transparent and seamless user experience
  • Does not require any endpoint installation
  • On premise or cloud deployment

Protect Internal and Cloud Applications

Fireglass can be deployed as a reverse proxy to protect both internal and cloud applications (e.g. ERP, BI, SharePoint, and Office 365) against malicious or compromised users. Fireglass protects against automated and scripted attacks including credentials stuffing, man-in-the-browser, cross-site scripting, data theft and more. Fireglass is technology independent and is entirely transparent to users and applications.
Highlights:
  • Protect internal and cloud applications
  • Blocks automated and scripted attacks
  • Prevent data theft by malicious or compromised users
  • Transparent to users and applications
  • On premise or cloud deployment
