Spikes Security’s AirGap solution isolates and prevents all known and unknown browser-borne malware from entering the network and infecting endpoint devices. AirGap is able to deliver this superior level of security because the solution physically separates and isolates the web browser from the end user. Instead of being installed on the desktop, the AirGap browser is deployed on a specialized server in the DMZ outside the corporate firewall. To access the web, end users inside the network launch a lightweight AirGap client viewer, which communicates directly with the AirGap server. The server then creates a hardware-isolated VM for each user session, processes all web user requests on behalf of the client, and presents a fully rendered, fully encrypted version of the content to the end user. Performance is also optimized to ensure excellent UX – even for video and audio content.
