McAfee to Acquire Integrate Light Point Security Remote Brower Isolation Capabilities
Wednesday 26 February 2020

26 February 2020 - California-based cybersecurity company McAfee has agreed to acquire browser isolation provider Light Point Security, LLC, to complement existing comprehensive inbound and outbound protection for all web and cloud traffic, the company said.

Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

Founded by former NSA employees, Light Point Security's solution can protect users from zero-day and other emerging malware like Ransomware and credential phishing attacks by isolating browser sessions in a remote virtual environment outside of the corporate network.

Light Point Security utilises proprietary technology to deliver highly performant, complete isolation, preventing elements of a page from reaching or being able to attack a client browser.

McAfee plans to integrate Light Point Security's browser isolation technology into McAfee Secure Web Gateway.

With this combination, enterprises will be able to prioritise both security efficacy and user experience by removing user exposure to malware while maintaining responsive access to legitimate websites and cloud applications.

McAfee plans to integrate browser isolation into the newly released MVISION UCE solution, which includes McAfee Secure Web Gateway, McAfee Data Loss Prevention and MVISION Cloud, thus enabling a complete and simplified implementation of the SASE Architecture.
