In our digital age, the concept of security has evolved beyond the traditional layers of the OSI model. With our daily dependence on web-based applications and services, browsers have become the primary gateway to information and transactions – in both our personal and professional lives. The security implications of this are profound, and enterprises are struggling to manage this new reality.

Most organisations fail to acknowledge the vital role the browser plays in the enterprise technology stack. While a broad variety of solutions exist to protect the browser, understanding how these fit with your specific business needs and provide the correct capabilities, is an important first step to best address, at scale, the growing volume of threats targeting the browser, the user, and applications.

What will be covered in this roundtable discussion:
- Why organisation need to evaluate the different approaches to browser security
- How the threat landscape is evolving to bypass browser security
- Why browser security is enhancing productivity for users and security teams
- How rethinking browser security can reduce costs and duplication
- What aspects of browser security secure access and data – both for managed and unmanaged endpoints

By the end of this conversation, delegates will learn how to:
- Evaluate browser security options as part of an enterprise security strategy
- Deliver the business and productivity value of rethinking browser security
- Reduce risk while increasing the visibility and control of applications and data
