Menlo Security

An Email Isolation Platform that Scales to Your Needs

Menlo Security delivers 100% safety via its isolation platform, eliminating the threat of malware while providing a seamless end-user experience.

The Isolation Platform deploys between a user’s device (e.g., desktop, laptop, tablet or smartphone) and the Internet. User Web requests are proxied via the MSIP, which accesses the Web on the user’s behalf and executes the user’s session entirely.

Only safe, malware-free rendering information is sent to the user’s endpoint, eliminating the possibility of malware reaching the user’s device. The Platform, which provides isolation for both clear-text (HTTP) and SSL-encrypted (HTTPS) Web content, is available as a public cloud service and can also be delivered as a virtual appliance for deployment in an organization’s data center.

The MSIP can be deployed stand-alone or in conjunction with existing Web security gateways, next-generation firewalls, network sandboxes or other security systems. It also integrates with an organization’s mail servers to protect spear-phishing and other email attacks.

Why Email Isolation Platforms are Important:

Conventional threat prevention products attempt to distinguish between ‘good’ content and ‘bad’ content and then implement policies intended to allow the safe content and block the unsafe. This approach is ineffective in eliminating malware because attackers continuously innovate and find ways to avoid detection. The results are costly:

False positives prevent users from accessing legitimate content, which compromises productivity, generates requests for re-classification of blocked content and creates security alerts that have to be analyzed by the IT security team.

False negatives allow malware and phishing attacks to reach users and their devices, which can lead to breaches and significant losses via data theft and fraud.

Security professionals are locked in a cat-and-mouse struggle with smart, motivated, well-financed attackers, and every generation of detection-based prevention technology sparks a new generation of attacks that evade defenses. It’s time for a new approach.

How Menlo Security is Different:

To be accepted by users and scale across an enterprise, an isolation solution must be:

  • Transparent – no impact on the user experience
  • Easy to deploy and manage – no requirement for endpoint software

The MSIP brings the benefits of isolation technology to any size enterprise. The MSIP leverages a cloud service (public or private) and requires no software or plug-ins on the endpoint. The MSIP supports any device, OS, and browser and delivers a user experience virtually indistinguishable from native Web access.
