New Product Available - Remote Browser Isolation

Netskope Remote Browser Isolation (RBI) capabilities are now integrated into the Netskope Security Cloud.

Note

Netskope native RBI is now generally available as an add-on feature for all accounts starting with release 88. Contact your Sales representative for more information.

While legacy Secure Web Gateways (SWG) are limited in that they can only block known bad web sites and allow known good ones, RBI technology enhances the Netskope SWG by providing safe access to uncategorized and risky web sites, removing threat risks or productivity limitations that can occur for users when sites are either fully allowed or fully blocked.

Targeted RBI renders uncategorized and security-risk web sites (6-8% of all web requests) into pixel-streamed media to users while removing active scripts and potential web threats. Another key benefit of targeted RBI is to block file uploads and downloads and disable copy, paste, or print activity for uncategorized and security risk web sites to reduce data exfiltration and threat risks.

Netskope native RBI is fully integrated and invoked with an “isolate” policy control for desired web traffic, removing the complexity of forward proxy configurations.

Key functionality includes:
