Ermes has been included by Gartner as the only vendor in Europe, as well as one of the few solutions mentioned in Security – The Future of Enterprise Browsers, Gartner’s latest research on the new category of cybersecurity.   

Enterprise browsers and extensions are changing the ways network security products are consumed, providing unique features for managed and unmanaged devices: Gartner’s new search deepens development horizons and capabilities, as well as advantages of this new category of products and identifies the 15 best vendors in this field.  

Gartner’s Research in a Nutshell 

According to the new Gartner’s research, there is a new category of cybersecurity products that is growing in the market. 

the way of working is changing, people work mainly Oline and outside the company perimeter, in smart working and in mobility conditions. It is this new paradigm that has led to new needs in the cybersecurity market.  

In this new context, a new solution has appeared: Enterprise browsers have emerged over the past few years, but the technology is still at the beginning of adoption.  

In fact, Gartner’s research displays the evolution of the browser security, which by 2025, enterprise browsers will be featured in 25% of web security competitive situations, and by 2030, will be the core platform for delivering workforce productivity and security software on managed and unmanaged devices to enable seamless hybrid work. 

The research also identifies two types of Browser Security solutions: 

  • Enterprise browser would be defined as a stand-alone web access application with integrated security, centralized policy management, visibility, reporting, productivity and collaboration tools. Two examples of Enterprise browser are Google and Microsoft;  
  • Browser extensions are managed agents executed by a browser application to deliver additional security or productivity services. An example of this technology is Ermes – Intelligent Web Protection. 

Benefits of Enterprise browsers and extensions technology

Enterprise browsers and extensions provide an alternative and lightweight method to provide many of the characteristics and benefits that existing security technologies provide today. 

Key Features and Benefits of Enterprise Browser & Extensions 

  1. Prevention & Detection 
  1. Centralized Management 
  1. Visibility & Response 
  1. Productivity & Collaboration 

The exodus of knowledge workers from behind the corporate firewall and the rise of cloud delivered applications have created an opportunity for browsers to serve as a means to meet a variety of enterprise cybersecurity and infrastructure requirements. 

Enterprise browsers are embracing the new remote work paradigm to consolidate secure remote access and centralize security and enterprise management functions while maintaining a mostly familiar end-user experience. 

Ermes has been operating in the field of computer security since 2018 and was born within the I3P incubator of the Polytechnic of Turin from an idea of the entrepreneur Hassan Metwalley. Thanks to its architecture capable of acting at the browser level and not of ret, stands out in the market as a very innovative reality using artificial intelligence to defend companies from potential intrusions and exponentially enhancing security during navigation, generating significant savings on bandwidth consumption.
