Here Are 6 Hot Browser Security Startups In 2022
Some startups are developing new ‘enterprise browsers,’ which build upon open-source code, while others are adamantly anti-enterprise browsers, saying there’s no need to develop entirely new ones. CRN looks at what six hot startups are doing in the browser security space.
Red Access is yet another Israeli startup to recently emerge from stealth mode to unveil its new browser security technology.
And Dor Zvi, co-founder and CEO of Red Access, is also emphatic that Red Access has not produced a new enterprise browser.
Instead, Zvi said the 25-employee Red Access, founded earlier this year with $6 million in seed funding, has developed the “first SaaS-based, agentless security platform” that improves security while allowing employees to continue using Chrome, Edge and other browsers of their choice.
“Our approach is very different” from other browser-security products, Zvi recently told CRN. “We have the same functionality you can get from a browser, but from what we consider a less intrusive, completely agentless way.”
Through its platform, Zvi said Red Access helps secure “any activity of corporate employees across any browser and also any local web applications that we use to connect to the cloud.”
Zvi added: “If you’re using Chrome or Mozilla or Edge or an old browser or whatever browser until now, then keep using it. … We took the browser’s security a step further, creating a platform to cover the full browsing and web surveys.”
Red Access’ target customers right now are large enterprise companies and financial firms, including banks, insurers and credit unions, Zvi said. Red Access is also serving some technology, energy and chemical companies.
