Where did this enterprise browser idea come from? What does it take to build it? And where is it taking enterprise work as an industry? Learn about the people, events, and ideas that led to the creation of Island, The Enterprise Browser.
Life before Island | Security by design | Becoming a venture backed company
Building the right blueprint from the start | Exiting stealth with a product, customers, and happy users | Our unique product philosophy.
“The names came first” - hiring top tier talent early | Letting the product do the hiring | The people who wanted to really change things.
Proactive, not preventative support | The life-long support team | Adding more value today than yesterday
Where destination meets purpose | Work as it should be | Adapts to wherever the Enterprise Browser category takes us
Why does The Enterprise Browser need to exist? What’s the problem with our current solutions? And how does this new approach to security and IT represent the future of work?
Our network is growing darker | Where’s the right place to gain control? | The rise of 3rd party users and devices
The broken “break and inspect” model | The embrace of new technologies and practices
Secure the work environment | Enable the IT organization | Enhance the end user experience
Turning an adversarial environment into a collaborative one | Not replacing everything - simplifying it | The never-ending use cases
How the browser became the center of work | The enterprise architecture shift | The browser as part of the enterprise infrastructure | Security finally enabling IT | IT in a box
What is it actually like to test drive, deploy, manage, and use The Enterprise Browser inside your organization? Is it as painful as other security solutions? What will my users go through? How about my end users? Here’s the complete teardown, from POC to company-wide deployment.
It’s not all or nothing - test at your own pace | Low risk, easy to consume | Installs as easily as… a browser
The 3 simple steps | Deploying in audit-only mode | The end user deployment experience
The POC that takes an hour, not a day | No end-user training required | The low-risk, no-friction rollout
Building a policy | Getting the support you need
Who’s using The Enterprise Browser today? Why did they choose it? What are they using it for? Watch Mike and Brian share customer conversations and interactions that paint the picture of what Island is like for customers right now.
Island as the preferred platform for securing the doctor-patient experience
Proof of concept at the trade show booth | From POC to 100% deployment in weeks
Used a custom automation to check that the right data was input in the right record
Enabling a seamless point of sale experience on tablets | Turning the tablet into a one-to-many device | “We don’t need to use a security device anymore”
The browser wasn’t always at the center of the workplace. How did we get here? What were the key factors in this transformation? And what changes when the browser you use at work is actually designed for work?
From personal interests to professional needs | Surrounding the browser with individual tools | An infrastructure that’s too easy to break
The standardization of the browser via Chromium | The need for universal compatibility | Searching for the ideal user experience
IT that end users want to use | Solving complex connectivity and compatibility challenges | Making end users lives’ easier and better | Injecting additional features into the browser experience
The natural experience for work | Injecting end-user productivity enhancements into the browser itself | Making the workplace experience ubiquitous | Streamlining development for one common work environment across all platforms
Asserting control where it makes the most sense - where work is happening | Placing controls as close to the point of origin as possible so they’re most effective | The browser as a core part of our infrastructure
At the heart of The Enterprise Browser is the smooth, familiar browser experience it delivers to users. But it goes beyond just being a browser. It enhances work, delivers unprecedented privacy, and more.
Traditional security by nature gets in the way of work | Island is secure-by-design - built into the natural flow of work | Sign in once for the rest of the day | Bringing together security teams and end users
Island provides unprecedented monitoring flexibility | End user transparency - showing them whether or not they are being audited | Maintaining separation - Island can be enforced only for critical apps | Giving organizations the ability to decide where and when to monitor behavior
How does the Enterprise Browser compare to the technologies and solutions we’re used to today? What issues go away? What new capabilities are now possible?
The extension problem with Host DLPs | Island passes the right files to DLP and impose DLP verdicts natively in browser
Inspecting URLs at pre and post encryption instead of breaking it | Still delivering the native browsing experience
The challenge of API integration - hindsite control | Island controls how data leaves the app even after CASB authorizes it
VDI is expensive, complicated, and unnatural | Island is a native browser experience | Simple to manage and deploy
RBI requires heavy CPU usage and intensive rendering, while diminishing the experience | Island takes the same concept, but natively within the browser, and across all apps and websites
