Sohonet announces partnership with Cyberinc to provide a hosted solution for air-gapped Internet browsing

Sohonet, the leading global experts in connected cloud services for the Media and Entertainment industry, today announced that they have entered into an agreement with Cyberinc, the security division of Aurionpro, a global leader in enterprise cybersecurity, identity and access management solutions, to provide a powerful new service to protect Media & Entertainment firms against cyber-attacks.

By offering Cyberinc’s Isla Malware Isolation as a hosted solution within the Sohonet Media Network, Sohonet’s customers can manage end-user web browsing within a “turn-key” environment that meets the strict guidelines of M&E security agencies.

Chuck Parker, Chairman and CEO of Sohonet, said, “This new Air Gap Browsing service is a logical extension to our managed firewall and security services, making Sohonet even more of a ‘one-stop’ shop for studios, post houses and VFX firms who need to maintain a separation between their production networks and the internet.”

According to Samir Sha CEO of Cyberinc, “The media and entertainment industries are at risk of advanced cyber-attacks and have struggled to effectively counter the rising tide of advanced malware which routinely bypasses traditional defenses. Today’s threats include attack techniques such as Ransomware, Spear Phishing, Malvertising and Drive by Downloads which can be devastating to any customer and require specialized technology and personnel to effectively counter. Our partnership with Sohonet enables us to deliver the first and only hardware enforced, virtual network malware isolation solution as a service to an industry that has suffered from devastating advanced attacks in the past.”

The Isla Cloud Service offering from Sohonet ensures that customers can take full advantage of the internet while eliminating the advanced web attacks that have placed companies at risk. Isla ensures compliance with a number of industry regulations and guidelines for cyber-security including the MPAA Global Content Security Program Section DS-2.0 which requires companies working in the motion picture industry isolate all systems processing studio data from the internet.

Parker adds, “Without a viable solution for accessing the Internet, end-users will continue to try and work around security restrictions, creating more risk, monitoring overhead and potential loss. An added bonus is our ability to offer the solution for any term from a couple of months to multi-year contracts, with no CAPEX or additional IT expenditures.”
