FAQ

  • What’s the difference between LayerX and Enterprise browser solutions like Talon and Island?
    LayerX protects your entire browser ecosystem as is, without requiring your users to shift, wholly or partially, to a new browser. At LayerX we understand that the browser choice of an enterprise is driven by many factors, and that both CISOs and users don’t want to migrate from their favorite browser to a customized one. LayerX’s platform mitigates the same browser security risks as Talon and Island, while being more focused on the browsing process itself and maintaining all the security and productivity advantages commercial browsers provide. Moreover, the enterprise browser introduces inevitable blind spots, stemming from the side-by-side deployment of the enterprise browser and the commercial one. With LayerX these gaps don’t exist in the first place since there is only one browser to monitor and control, providing hermetic security coverage to any browsing activity users perform.
  • What’s the difference between LayerX and browser isolation solutions?
    Browser isolation solutions are focused on preventing exploits’ execution and malware download by creating a secure environment where they can run without interacting with the ‘real machine’. At LayerX we believe that this approach is subject to three main flaws. First, exploits and malware are already soundly addressed by today’s commercial browsers and Endpoint Protection solutions. Second, browsing isolation is infamous for resource consuming and degrading the endpoint’s performance. And third - and probably the most important - browser isolation lacks the ability to address the wider perspective of the browser risk landscape in which phishing, data leakage and SaaS risks have prominent presence. Browser isolation doesn’t address these risks since it only targets activities that take place within a live web session. LayerX’s browser extension approach, on the other hand, provides comprehensive coverage to the web-borne risk landscape, by monitoring these web sessions in real-time to detect suspicious activity, while conducting contextual cloud-based isolation and assuring that the user experience is at the best possible level.
  • Doesn’t continuous monitoring of all user activity on the web violate the user’s privacy?
    Not at all! The continuous monitoring refers to the action takes place locally within LayerX’s in-browser ML engine and not to the data sent to LayerX management console. This engine has granular visibility into every browsing events to ensure it can detect indications of malicious activity effectively and in a timely manner. However, the vast majority of this data, including Personal Identifiable Information (PII) and private content, never leaves the browser at all. The only data that is sent to LayerX cloud is alerts on risky activities for the security team to investigate and respond to.
  • How is LayerX deployed in a production environment?
    For managed devices, LayerX is easily installed in a few clicks with device management tools (such as group policy). For unmanaged devices, we provide identity-centric deployment that allows users to load a managed browser profile into their unmanaged device with a lightweight installer or a simple sign in. The LayerX unmanaged deployment allows users to access and interact with corporate cloud apps using a managed browser profile, without it ever monitoring any other device or personal browsing activity.
  • What is the impact of LayerX extension on the browsing user experience?
    Near zero. LayerX was built and designed to transparently steer users to secure browsing so it only interferes with the browsing activity when it introduces a risk to data, device or application.
  • What is a browser security platform?
    A browser security platform is a new cyber security product category that acknowledges the critical role browsers have in today’s IT environment. These products address all the risks and threats to the browser's data, the device it runs on, or SaaS apps that access through it, in a centralized manner. Continuous monitoring, risk analysis and policy enforcement on user activities focus on the browser itself where the activity actually takes place, rather than applying it to mere network traffic that is inherently limited in the data and context it can provide.
  • How does LayerX work?
    LayerX is a browser-agostic security platform is delivered as a lightweight extensionthat aggregates all activity data for monitoring and risk analysis purposes to enforce secure access and browsing. With LayerX, security teams configure activity policies to prevent risky user activities in the browser that can expose apps, devices and data to risk of compromise or data loss.Once an activity policy is activated, the LayerX cloud service pushes it to the extension that performs the actual enforcement on the browser. The extension has three functionalities: processing activity data and reporting to the cloud service, receiving policies from the cloud service and enforcing it, and analysing risk together with the cloud service. Layer X integrates with identity management tools and zero trust access systems to ensure minimal overhead for security teams and efficient use of their time.
  • Why do I need a browser security platform?
    There is a wide range of risks and threats that is either only partially covered by other solutions or not at all. Among the second group, two prominent examples are monitoring and protection of user activity on unsanctioned apps and other non-corporate web destinations, as well as prevention of installing malicious extensions on the browser which is a leading credential theft vector. These capabilities are absent from any other security product today. A browser security platform provides secure solutions to these vulnerabilities.
  • How exactly does LayerX make it easier to provide 3rd party access to my resources?
    With LayerX you don’t have to allocate 3rd party contractors a managed device, but rather deploy (by installation or sign in) a managed browser profile protected with the LayerX extension on their own devices, enabling them to connect to your SaaS apps only via the LayerX protected browser profile. You can then craft dedicated access and activity policies, providing them seamless access only to the data they need within these apps, keeping all other data secured.
  • Aren’t my SaaS applications already protected by my CASB solution?
    Your main applications (Office, Box, etc) are covered in terms of visibility, as long as they are centrally installed and managed. However, CASB is only as good as the API of the apps it protects, introducing inconsistencies in the levels of visibility between different apps. CASB isn’t effective with unmanaged applications and shadow SaaS. Additionally, CASB is not strong in actual prevention of malicious activity. LayerX provides a consistent level of monitoring and control to all applications, with no API dependency, and can prevent any malicious activity upon detection of risk.
  • How can LayerX harden the authentication requirements for my SaaS applications?
    The LayerX extension’s user profile can be used as an additional authentication factor on top of the user account. This can be implemented either as a standalone factor or by integrating LayerX with the cloud identity provider.
  • Can LayerX also protect my on-prem legacy applications as well?
    Certainly. LayerX can protect any application that is accessed through a browser with access policies that act as authentication factor, and activity policies that act as an authorization mechanism.
  • How does LayerX protect against credential theft from my device?
    LayerX can prevent web-based attempts to steal user credentials. It scans for phishing sites, prevents credential leakage to suspicious apps, blocks risky browser extensions that may harvest user credentials. In addition, LayerX can modify, restrict or block the storage of credentials on the hosting device in order to address device threats, such as malware attempting to steal the browser password data.
  • Why isn’t my firewall enough to prevent employees from accessing malicious web pages?
    Firewall flags malicious web destinations based on their hostname/URL and is blind to the content of each web page itself. This approach lags behind the rapid and dynamic nature of modern web phishing, and as a result many malicious pages can evade it. Attackers nowadays abuse cloud services and SaaS applications in order to distribute phishing and malware. A firewall simply doesn't have the required visibility into the various components that indicate if a website is malicious or not. LayerX scans the webpage’s content and applies AI analysis to detect malicious attributes, yielding a far higher success rate
