Symantec embraces browser isolation

Symantec Corp (SYMC.O) is acquiring Israeli cybersecurity startup Fireglass, the company said on Thursday, in a small deal designed to boost its products that protect corporate email and web browsing from threats, reports Reuters,  paying an undisclosed sum for the Tel Aviv-based company of about 40 employees.

Fireglass specialises in an area of security called "browser isolation," a technology that creates virtual websites allowing users to browse any content without having viruses touch their network.

"Browser isolation" is an area that Symantec had been looking to enter for some time, says (right) CEO Greg Clark in an interview where he quoted a Gartner report that projected that 50 percent of enterprises would adopt browser isolation by 2021.

Healthcare companies, financial institutions, government and telecommunications firms have been early adopters of the technology, he said.
