Enhancing Security With a Fit-for-Purpose Enterprise Browser

Poornima DeBolle Discusses Menlo Security's Approach to Enterprise Browsers

A secure enterprise browser is tailored to the needs of the organizations and "fit for finish," unlike feature-rich consumer browsers used by over 2 billion people in the world, said Poornima DeBolle, co-founder and chief product officer at Menlo Security. DeBolle explained why enterprises require a browser that prioritizes security and manageability over extraneous features.

A major distinction lies in the vulnerabilities browsers face. DeBolle put them in two main categories: zero-day exploits and leveraging browser capabilities for malicious purposes. A secure enterprise browser delivers a good user experience while ensuring robust protection against zero-day and zero-hour phishing attacks.

"A feature-rich browser has a lot of code. It has a lot of software. And within that software, there are zero-day exploits," she said. "That's one way a browser is targeted. A threat actor can direct you to a website and is able to exploit a zero-day vulnerability to compromise the browser."

In this video interview with Information Security Media Group at Infosecurity Europe 2024, DeBolle also discussed:

  • Factors organizations should consider when choosing a secure enterprise browser;
  • How tech companies are contributing to the secure enterprise browser market;
  • Menlo Security's approach to secure enterprise browsers, and what sets it apart from others.

DeBolle has more than 15 years of leadership experience in business development, product management, cloud computing and entrepreneurship. She is a member of the Forbes Technology Council. Previously, she was the senior director of PLM, cloud security and security management at Juniper Networks.
