NetAbstraction combines their next-generation secure network with Light Point Security’s first and only server-based virtual-machine-in-a-browser
Chantilly, Virginia – May 23, 2013 – NetAbstraction today announces that Light Point Security has been selected as their secured web browsing provider. Light Point Security’s signature product is Light Point Web, a secure cloud-based web browsing solution that allows clients to search and browse the Internet through a virtual machine. Combining Light Point Security’s cloud-based web browsing solution with NetAbstraction introduces to clients an additional layer of online protection from malware, while at the same time offering Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption which protects the transmission of online information.
While Light Point Security offers customers malware-free web browsing, NetAbstraction provides a secure cloud-based network. NetAbstraction ensures the anonymity of customer’s Internet access, while at the same time making it virtually impossible for providers to attribute traffic to any one particular source. Integrating Light Point Web with NetAbstraction delivers to clients a complete solution in online identity protection and malware prevention.
“NetAbstraction is the premier service offering from Cutting Edge C.A. and the use of Light Point Security’s web browser in connection with NetA provides a significant additional security capability for our customers”, said Barbara M. Hunt, President and Chief Technology Officer of Cutting Edge C.A. “Light Point Security’s web browser integrates seamlessly with NetA and its performance proved to be admirable during a recent independent cyber security test. Teaming with Light Point Security allows us to leverage each other’s skills and technical capabilities while providing a unique end-to-end ‘turnkey’ solution.”
“Light Point Security is excited to have been chosen to protect NetAbstraction’s customers from malware,” said Beau Adkins, Light Point Security’s Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer. “Light Point Web isolates each employee’s web browsing session within a one-time-use virtual machine to prevent any web content from ever reaching their computers. Combining this technology with NetAbstraction gives customers the ability to browse to any site in the world without worrying about being tracked or being infected.”
Cyber Crime, specifically Cyber Attacks associated with viruses, malware, and identity theft, is estimated to reach as much as $350 billion this year, according to a report by Microsoft and International Data Corporation (IDC). The combination of NetAbstraction and Light Point Web prevents malware and viruses from reaching the user’s systems. The merging of these two products marks a significant opportunity to help reduce several significant tactics Cyber Criminals employ. Beginning immediately, customers of NetAbstraction will have the option of adding Light Point Web to their accounts.
