As more organizations embrace remote work, it’s becoming increasingly clear that you can’t secure decentralized enterprise environments with consumer-grade solutions. That includes web browsers.
In an attempt to offer organizations greater control over employee access, a wave of enterprise browser providers like Talon Cyber Security, which today announced it has raised $100 million as part of a series A funding round, are aiming to give security teams the power to manage administrative privileges on BYOD devices.
These solutions enable security teams to control and secure user access to enterprise applications and data, while providing authentication, data loss prevention, and zero-trust capabilities.
The need for secure enterprise browsers
As more enterprises have transitioned to remote working environments, many organizations have assumed that traditional web browsers offer enough inbuilt security capabilities to enable employees to work safely offsite.

In fact, Verizon research found there were 4,751 incidents due to basic web application attacks last year, perpetrated through means of accessing servers via stolen credentials, exploiting vulnerabilities, and backdoors.
According to Frost and Sullivan, enterprise browsers have a critical role to play in establishing trust in zero-trust environments, assessing the posture of the installation device and setting access policies according to the device type and login user, offering granular controls over web applications while offering users native protection from malware infiltration, credential harvesting and data exfiltration.
In the era of remote working, the reality is that any organization that enables employees to work offsite should consider using an enterprise browser to implement zero trust.
“The way we work has fundamentally changed — people now work from anywhere on managed and unmanaged devices and use an increasing number of SaaS– and web-based applications to carry out their job responsibilities. Plus, organizations are using an increasing number of th …
