BALTIMORE, Md., May 23, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --Light Point Security, creators of the Light Point Web Full Isolation Platform™, the only browser isolation technology to provide full isolation from all web content and seamless integration with existing browsers, today announced that Discovery Benefits, one of the nation's largest administrators of employee benefits, selected the Light Point Web Full Isolation Platform to protect end user devices and enterprise systems and networks from web-based malware, ransomware and other web-borne attacks.
"Discovery Benefits has long been committed to protecting its networks and data from web-based malware and attacks," said Paul Olson, VP of Information Security and Security Officer at Discovery Benefits. "The Light Point Web Full Isolation Platform provides us peace of mind in knowing our assets are protected from even the most advanced threats, and allows users to safely navigate the web and download documents without risk."
The Light Point Web Full Isolation Platform protects enterprise networks and systems from web-borne attacks by isolating a user's web browsing activity onto a remote virtual server. By executing all web content away from the user's endpoint, Light Point Web allows Discovery Benefits to prevent attackers from breaching enterprise systems or exfiltrating sensitive customer data.
"We looked at various options for securing our endpoints, and found Light Point Web was the most mature and reliable solution and provides us the greatest level of protection against malicious websites, emails and documents," said Olson. "Light Point Web allowed us to reduce the level of browser-based malware while increasing users' ability to freely browse the web. It also allows our IT management the ability to better control web activities, such as blocking uploads and downloads, actions we could not do before deploying Light Point Web."
"As the initial architects of the concept of web isolation, we are pleased to see the rise in the market adoption of web isolation as a means for protecting endpoints," said Zuly Gonzalez, Co-founder and CEO at Light Point Security. "Light Point Web's full isolation approach allows our customers to achieve the highest level of security without impacting users' ability to browse the web. Our record growth last year is a testament to the market's embracement of our technology and the unique value we provide our customers."
