Implement Zero Trust Web Access

Stop phishing attacks without stopping productivity
Carlos Carvajal

In today’s digital landscape, where cybersecurity threats are becoming increasingly sophisticated, that’s why ensuring secure web browsing for your users is critical. However, how do you balance between productivity and safe web browsing? You don’t have to!


Here are two common use cases of how organizations around the world are using Forcepoint RBI to implement zero trust web browsing without stifling productivity.

Implementing Zero-trust web: When good sites go bad.

While seemingly safe websites may lull users into a false sense of security, they can quickly become channels of delivering malware through Zero-day vulnerabilities.  Techniques such as drive-by downloads and HTML smuggling attacks exploit this hidden weakness, turning trusted sites into unsuspecting hosts for malicious code. Forcepoint RBI delivers seamless web browsing experience and reinforces the zero trust model during web sessions. RBI executes web session in an isolated environment away from the users’ local devices.

This means that any potentially malicious content, like malware or threats that may be found on known safe sites remain confined within the isolated environment, protecting users’ device and network. This approach aligns with Zero-trust, where no web content is inherently trusted. The beauty of RBI lies in its seamless browsing experience. Users remain productive while enjoying the same familiar browsing experience, complete with interactive elements, content, and forms while the actual web content remains isolated. This eradicates the need for constant threat detection and scanning on local devices, as potentially harmful elements are kept at bay.

Beyond content isolation: Safeguard against suspicious links and credential theft

Phishing attacks continue to be among the most pervasive cyber threats. Cybercriminals use several social engineering techniques to craft convincing emails that lure victims into clicking malicious links or divulging sensitive information. Remote Browser Isolation puts an end to this threat. Instead of directly opening links in emails, RBI can open them in an isolated environment. Any malicious intent is effectively neutralized, rendering phishing attempts harmless. But what about links meant to steal credentials? Remote Browser Isolation manages that threat as well. RBI goes beyond isolation of content. It can also automatically disable user and password entry, essentially converting suspicious destinations into read-only mode to protect against credential theft.  By isolating all links, regardless of their destination, RBI ensures every link is treated with suspicion until proven safe. This comprehensive approach leaves no room for compromise. The result is 100 % zero trust framework.
