About Light Point Security
The founders of Light Point Security gained unique insights on the state of cybersecurity during their time at the National Security Agency. This experience made it clear that web browsers are the most serious threat to network security, and that traditional, detection-based security products could never keep up.
Light Point Security invented the concept of using a remote, isolated web browser to finally address the biggest threat facing enterprises. Its flagship product, Light Point Web, is the most advanced fully-isolated web browser ever created, and the only one that integrates into existing browsers.
