Making the web a safe place to visit
by Mirko Zorz - Editor in Chief - Tuesday, 13 May 2014.
The new truth is that the web browser is, increasingly, the primary threat vector for cyber attacks on the enterprise. Confidential research available to Gartner members confirm this, as well as a 2013 review by Palo Alto Networks which found that over 90 percent of undetected malware comes through the browser.

Traditional detection-based security technologies are reactive and ineffective in stopping the ever growing number of complex zero-day attacks, APTs, and polymorphic threats delivered through the browser.

In this podcast, recorded at Infosecurity Europe 2014, Branden Spikes, CEO, CTO & Founder of Spikes Security, talks about making the web a safe place to visit with the use of isolation technology for preventing malicious content from infecting endpoints.

The AirGap web security solution solves this problem with a patented, highly secure, virtualized browser isolated outside the firewall. All web content is accessed by end users through a lightweight, high performance viewer on the user desktop (and soon mobile devices). This “air gapped” separation between the user and the browser ensures that the enterprise network will never be infected by browser-borne malware. Just as important, end users are empowered to use the web without fear.


More than 900 embedded devices share hard-coded certs, SSH host keys

SEC Consult analyzed firmware images of more than 4000 embedded devices of over 70 vendors and found that, in some cases, there are nearly half a million devices on the web using the same certificate.
