Browser Security

Working from home became the “new normal” during the COVID-19 pandemic and now in mid-2022, hybrid and remote work are still popular options for employees. If you are one of the millions still working remote, protection offered by web browsers is more important than ever.

The ability to warn potential victims that they are about to land on a malicious website or click on a suspicious URL puts web browsers in a unique position to protect the user from an attack. Websites that trick users into downloading malware and phishing campaigns often used for criminal activity have short lifespans, so it is essential that the URL is discovered and added to the reputation system as quickly as possible. A good reputation system must be both accurate and fast to achieve high catch rates.  

The Comparative Test Reports provide detailed results for Phishing and Malware protection with time to block and protection over time as key metrics in test scores.
