A Secure Browser

Posted by sharepoinTony on October 29, 2013

I recently read this article: https://451research.com/report-short?entityId=79134&referrer=marketing#! and I like the concept.

First of all, I really like the idea of businesses using one browser for internal browsing and another for external (which is a more secure browser). This is just common sense and a simple solution.

Granted it isn’t fool-proof, nor would it be ‘easy’ to get business users to switch browsers for different activity. But I speak from my perspective, as a user who uses 2 different browsers at work every day already. I just like being able to jump to one browser where I am researching or have reference material open and then back to another where I am working on something.

Secondly, I think it makes sense to have a browser that Doesn’t allow any advertising or tracking, that makes the tool good for business use.

Why would your company want to help marketers track your users?

Why would your company want to help advertisers distract your employees?

Why wouldn’t your company want to use a secure browser?

The COST of a business-focused browser may go up from free to some dollar amount. But take that in context – how much cost is there in your business trying to secure your browsers, limit your employees browsing or repairing systems damaged by a virus, worm or ransomware?
