You gotta keep 'em separated. This is the motto of a new wave of solutions utilizing isolation as a primary mechanism for maintaining a strong security posture. As users grow increasingly dependent on the minefield of threats that is today's Internet, new solutions are emerging to help them access the web more securely and safely.
Episode 004: The Disposable Browser
Scott Petry has made a career out of building next-generation security solutions for email and the web. His first company Postini provided email security, archiving, and spam filtering services to 35,000 businesses and 10 million users worldwide before being acquired by Google in 2007. Authentic8—Scott's latest venture—is the maker of Silo, a groundbreaking security solution that has been hailed "the ultimate security solution" by ZDNet.
Silo provides an isolated environment for safe web browsing—a disposable browser—that keeps user data separated and isolated from the variety of potential threats on the user's machine and across the Internet. We had an in-depth conversation with Scott regarding the mechanics of Silo, as well as current events and trends around information security.
