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.”
