With Protect On Q, enterprises for the first time have the ability to stop browser-based data compromise, without having to deploy client software.
Austin, Texas (PRWEB) March 8, 2010
Quaresso Software Technologies, Inc., a provider of on-demand web browser security solutions, today announced availability of its Protect On Q software. The web security solution enables online enterprises and organizations to instantly and temporarily extend data security beyond the limits of SSL, to secure their customers’ browsers. Websites deploy Protect On Q to protect their users against account takeover and data loss, even from malware embedded on compromised client computers.
By temporarily extending security to incoming browser sessions, Protect On Q provides organizations with an "armored browser" to protect sensitive data from compromise by keyloggers, session hijacking, cache miners, web malware, and other attacks that may be introduced through a customer’s web browser. Protect On Q can also prevent information loss from user actions by controlling user ability to copy, print or save browser-delivered information. Uniquely, it can do this without the cost of installing and maintaining permanent client software. Protect On Q is downloaded automatically and transparently to the user's browser and cleaned up, along with any resident data, at the end of a browser session.
"It is very clear that the browser is the primary target for endpoint malware attacks and is also a significant concern of our customers," said Bernardino Grignaffini, Security & IT Governance Director, Lutech S.p.A. "Companies want solutions that allow them to reduce information theft without adding the burden of client software. The response we have seen to Protect On Q has been outstanding. Customers not only want to defend against malware; but are also grateful about the ability to protect sensitive corporate data in the browser from being compromised by users.”
"Security is only as strong as its weakest link, and for web applications this often times means the end user's browser,” said Mark Elliott, founder and chief executive officer of Quaresso. “Web server security solutions or HTTPS, while important, offer little defense to data once it has been delivered to the endpoint, which is a growing customer concern. With Protect On Q, enterprises for the first time have the ability to stop browser-based data compromise, without having to deploy client software."
Protect On Q is a software solution, deployed alongside web applications. The armored browser is delivered when users connect to the website. Administrators of Protect On Q can easily craft site-specific policies to control its array of security features. Protect On Q, based on technology licensed from Blue Coat Systems, Inc., is available on a subscription basis. It is sold through Quaresso’s network of reseller partners.
Quaresso provides businesses with website defense against endpoint threats. While SSL protects data on the network, Quaresso enables websites to instantly and temporarily extend protection to the endpoint browser. Quaresso's Protect On Q, and its unique, temporary armored browser, enable online enterprises including financial services, healthcare, media, and government to defend their business and their customers from malware and information compromise. Quaresso is a privately-held corporation based in Austin, Texas. For more information, visit http://www.quaresso.com.
