The Enterprise Access Browser Prevents Data Loss from Remote Employees, Partners and 3rd Party Contractors
Why Start With the Browser?
The browser has evolved over the years into the primary access point for employees to reach enterprise applications, SaaS applications, and a multitude of other web-based functions needed to perform their jobs. The position of the browser in this remote network architecture, with its view of the source of so many transactions, eliminates the need to proxy and decrypt network traffic, provides significantly more context, and allows the real-time analysis of web browser sessions for security monitoring. The browser is also the ideal location to govern conditional access to a broad range of destinations including internal data centers and applications, public cloud access, SaaS Applications, web sites and more.
The browser provides a key vantage point at the primary source of internal applications, company data and SaaS services. No need to decrypt traffic or manage certs.
Adding a policy engine to the browser provides the ideal point to tailor permissions, control user activity, and maintain detailed audit logs.
Rather than trying to piece together context from network inspection, the browser already knows the identity of the user, the applications accessed and the associated permissions.
SECURE REMOTE ACCESS WITH THE ENTERPRISE ACCESS BROWSER
The Enterprise Access Browser (EAB) is a new product category that combines a policy engine and a Chromium based web browser to create a new solution for secure remote access. The Mammoth Cyber solution enforces conditional access and controls user actions when connecting to the public cloud, internal applications and SaaS applications. Technology integrations with identity providers automate the secure onboarding and remote users, contractors and partners without the need for VDI or VPN connections.
Key Requirements for Secure Remote Access
Combining Conditional Access with Centrally Managed Access Control
VISIBILITY AND CONTROL
Once the gold standard for secure remote access, VPNs are widely deployed, but lack the visibility required to implement Zero Trust policies. With the EAB, users are not granted wholesale access to the network. They are only provided access to the applications they need to do their jobs, and detailed logging maintains a complete audit trail of all user actions.
The Mammoth Browser helps IT security teams enforce strict access policies while minimizing the impact to the end user. The EAB presents a familiar interface for users to access the applications and data they need to do their jobs, and they no longer need to toggle between multiple VPN and ZTNA clients to access different applications.
Mammoth’s EAB extends secure remote access even further by allowing users focused on dev and engineering roles to utilize their local environments. These employees often have spent significant effort to customize their local environments and the EAB includes capabilities that allow for SSH, RDP, Git, Kubernetes and Database access direct from the browser.
Integration with Identity providers like Okta and Azure AD allows a seamless and automated exchange of role based permissions. Identity and permission management flag the use of corporate identities for external accounts where identities could be more easily compromised.
