Crusoe Security

What problem are you trying to solve?

We are a “defense against the web” solution. In our opinion, the only way to defend against the web is web isolation. The current climate is like a war between the organization and the hackers. You can deploy a better firewall or a better anti-virus system but then the hackers will just update their own equipment. It’s a constant battle! Just like a game of football. You could be the best goalkeeper, but one minute you’re not ready and the game is lost.

How do you aim to solve this problem?

We establish a new farm in the DMZ environment, in a place that doesn’t store important organizational data. Internet browsing is launched from that environment therefore, the user has a native experience with a separation from the internet. The organization is very safe from data leaks and malware. Also, we know that the internet is not only websites. Many applications use the internet such as Skype for Business or Google Earth. This software constantly communicates with the internet so we can give the user access to these applications by installing them in the DMZ environment using remote protocol.

Who is your competition?

Other web isolation software.

How are you different from them?

There solutions only help websites. They use HTML 5 protocol like we do, but they don’t have any alternatives if the website doesn’t support their protocol. We have 4 protocols that we support: HTML 5, Citrix ICA, Microsoft RDP and VMware’s PCoIP . In this way we can optimize our solution allowing organizations to reuse their existing protocol licenses, providing them a secure solution without the need to spend more money. Other companies will make an organization open access from their workstation directly to their website if their website doesn’t support the protocol.

What do you think is the greatest concern in the world of Cybersecurity?

Biggest threats are unknown threats and risks we cannot manage. We have no idea what attacks will happen in the future. Thus isolation is the only solution since you’re not fighting unknown threats, just shutting down access.
