by Zuly Gonzalez

Breadth and Depth of Defense, Increase in User Productivity, and Exceptional Customer Experience Lead Discovery Benefits to Choose the Light Point Web Full Isolation Platform Over the Competition

Baltimore, MD – May 23, 2017 – Light Point Security, creators of the Light Point Web Full Isolation PlatformTM, 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.”

Posted on by JudyCategories Events, Light Point Web, Press ReleaseLeave a comment on Webinar: Full Browser Isolation with Threat-Free Downloads via Content Disarm and Reconstruction

OPSWAT LogoAs our customers know, we are constantly increasing the value of Light Point Web by adding new features and functionality. In a joint effort with our partner OPSWAT, Light Point Web, which provides unmatched protection from web, document and email based malware, will enhance its current document-based malware protection capabilities by integrating OPSWAT’s Content Disarm and Reconstruction (CDR) technology into its platform.

Register Now

The new CDR (file sanitization) technology strips exploitable content from files for a complete threat-free browsing experience. By integrating OPSWAT’s CDR engines into Light Point Web all downloaded files will be thoroughly scanned and/or sanitized before the user’s local machine receives them. The integration will not impact the end users’ productivity, since all sanitized files will be reconstructed with all their functionality and usability intact. This joint solution provides users 100% malware prevention from malicious websites through Light Point Security’s Full Isolation technology and comprehensive malware protection from malicious file downloads through OPSWAT’s file sanitization and multi-scanning engines.

We are very excited about this new feature and will be hosting a joint webinar with OPSWAT to showcase the technology and discuss how this joint solution provides organizations complete end-to-end protection from malware without compromising user experience. The webinar is scheduled for Tuesday April 11, 2017 from 1:00 – 1:30pm EDT. We encourage all to attend, and you can sign up for the webinar here.

OPSWAT Partners with Light Point Security to Offer Full Browser Isolation with Threat-Free Downloads via Content Disarm and Reconstruction
by Zuly Gonzalez

OPSWAT and Light Point Security are partnering to offer a unique solution that will complement Light Point Security’s existing browsing isolation solution by scanning and sanitizing each downloaded file with OPSWAT’s advanced Content Disarm and Reconstruction/data sanitization technology.

San Francisco, CA, Mar. 28, 2017OPSWAT, Inc. and Light Point Security today announced their partnership to provide completely secure web browsing with web isolation and threat-free file downloads. OPSWAT provides industry-leading solutions to secure and manage IT infrastructure, including data sanitization (Content Disarm and Reconstruction) to strip exploitable content from files, and Light Point Security offers the Light Point Web Full Isolation PlatformTM, the only browsing isolation technology to provide full isolation from all web content and seamless integration with existing browsers.

The Light Point Web Full Isolation Platform transparently protects enterprises from ransomware and all web-based malware by isolating users’ web browsing activity onto a remote, secure environment. This prevents any web code from ever reaching users’ computers, and thus totally eliminates the risk of compromising enterprise endpoints and assets via web-borne threats.

OPSWAT’s threat detection and prevention platform, Metadefender, combines next-generation data sanitization (also known as Content Disarm and Reconstruction), vulnerability detection, and multi-scanning with over 30 anti-malware engines. Metadefender also offers a number of other security functionalities, along with flexible deployment options and dynamic REST APIs.

By integrating OPSWAT’s data sanitization (CDR) engines with Light Point Security’s remote browser isolation platform, all downloaded files will be thoroughly scanned and sanitized before the user’s local machine receives them. The integration will not impact the end users’ productivity, since all sanitized files will be reconstructed with all their functionality and usability intact. This joint solution provides users 100% malware prevention from malicious websites through Light Point Security’s Full Isolation technology and comprehensive malware protection from malicious file downloads through OPSWAT’s data sanitization and multi-scanning engines.

Most file types can be sanitized with OPSWAT’s CDR technology, but for file formats that are not currently supported, Light Point Web will pass the files through its existing integration with OPSWAT’s multi-scanning engines before downloading the files from the web to the user’s computer. The multi-scanning integration was released almost two years ago, and the addition of data sanitization was the most natural next step.

Benny Czarny, CEO and Founder of OPSWAT, said, “We see a lot of interest from our partners for integrating with our Content Disarm and Reconstruction engines. In this case, Light Point Security did an amazing job creating the best full browsing isolation solution, but they haven’t stopped there. I congratulate them for going the extra mile in order to provide an end-to-end solution, securing not only the web session, but also the data that is brought inside the organization through that session. Integrating with our Metadefender platform creates an incredible customer value proposition and a strong commitment to all our joint customers.”

“We are excited to continue our strong partnership with OPSWAT,” said Zuly Gonzalez, Co-founder and CEO of Light Point Security. “We’ve been impressed with OPSWAT’s continued commitment to delivering new, innovative solutions for today’s most pressing security challenges. Combining Metadefender’s extensive data sanitization capabilities with the protection of the Light Point Web Full Isolation Platform provides organizations with a rock-solid approach to secure web browsing. This joint solution is the perfect way for enterprises to prevent malware from the web from infecting the corporate network.”

Light Point Security and OPSWAT encourage IT and security leaders to visit the joint solution product page to learn more about how this joint solution provides organizations complete end-to-end protection from malware without compromising user experience, and to register for the joint webinar Full Browser Isolation with Threat-Free Downloads via Content Disarm and Reconstruction scheduled for April 11, 2017.

ELEVI Associates Selects Light Point Security as Its Exclusive Isolated Browser Partner
by Zuly Gonzalez

Light Point Security and ELEVI Associates form strategic partnership to bring malware-free browsing to ELEVI’s Fortune 100 and government customers

BALTIMORE, Feb. 16, 2017 – Light Point Security, creators of the Light Point Web Full Isolation PlatformTM, the only browser isolation technology to provide full isolation from all web content and seamless integration with existing browsers, today announced a strategic partnership with ELEVI Associates, a leading technology and cyber security value-added provider serving customers in government, including the Department of Defense, and commercial markets throughout North America. ELEVI will incorporate Light Point Security’s web isolation platform into their security practice, enabling their customers to significantly enhance their security posture.

“In an era where cyber vulnerabilities are being discovered and exploited by malicious actors at an exponential rate, it’s increasingly important for organizations, whether government or commercial, to be ever vigilant and take every precaution necessary to protect against today’s sophisticated threats,” said Phil Puccio, Founder and CEO of ELEVI Associates. “Our partnership with Light Point Security, and the addition of Light Point Web to our portfolio of products, will enable us to fulfill an increasing demand for new approaches to preventing cyber attacks. The product’s extensive functionality, reliability and superior security will allow us to further deliver upon our commitment to provide solutions that enable our clients to more successfully mitigate cyber risks.”

Traditional security solutions rely on detection-based technologies to protect organizations and their sensitive data. However, detection-based products only provide protection against known attacks or known sources of malware and provide no protection against new attacks – leaving organizations exposed to new threats.

The Light Point Web Full Isolation Platform takes a different approach to security by treating all web content as malicious. Operating transparent to the user, Light Point Web fully isolates each user’s browsing session within a remote virtual environment. The dangerous task of executing website code is contained within that virtual environment, and only a real-time, malware-free interactive view of the website is sent to the user’s standard browser. With the Light Point Web Full Isolation Platform no website content is ever executed on user endpoints, not even “safe” website content, eliminating any potential for malware and freeing up IT staff to focus on key business issues.

“ELEVI has established a strong reputation and client base and understands the complexity of the security threats today’s organizations are facing,” said Zuly Gonzalez, Co-founder and CEO of Light Point Security. “We are very excited about our strategic relationship with ELEVI as the company has a strong track record of delivering best of breed systems, services and products to federal government and commercial enterprise customers. Merging ELEVI’s knowledge and expertise in cyber security with the Light Point Web Full Isolation Platform will provide customers with a comprehensive and rock solid approach to protecting their organization from even the newest and most advanced attacks.”
