Introducing Isolated Workspace-as-a-Service: The New Way to Isolate Your Workspace — Hysolate

What is Isolated Workspace-as-a-Service?

With Hysolate, users and organizations can isolate workspaces on endpoints. Hysolate makes it simple for enterprises to maintain essential security standards while simultaneously keeping users productive and happy, protecting company data and also protecting employee privacy.

  • A lightweight product that is instantly provisioned on existing machines
  • Doesn’t require an additional OS image or license
  • Can be pre-configured with a set of apps, networking policies, and security features, that can all be centrally managed

Isolating Corporate Assets on Non-Managed Endpoints

Organizations need to enable employees, third parties and contractors to use corporate applications and/or access corporate network assets from a machine that is not managed by the organization, safely. This is becoming more prominent these days, when organizations sometimes have to hire people remotely and don’t even have the option of providing them an organizational machine.

  • Organization assets (including the network) accessed from a potentially infected device, as the organization has little control over the device’s security posture.
  • Installation of security software on user devices, if at all possible, can result in privacy issues.
  • IT support complexity resulting from the many different devices can be huge and is unpredictable.

So How Can Companies Protect Their Assets on Non-Managed Endpoints ?

Hysolate can be instantly deployed on corporate machines to provide employees with a workspace that is completely segregated from their corporate environment, where they can be free from limitations that are applicable in the corporate environment.

  • Users are much more productive with the ability to browse the web, install software, etc.
  • Browsing experience is great — even when using VPN to connect to the organization.
  • Security posture is not compromised, but rather it can be enhanced, with the ability to further harden the corporate environment.
  • And as an operational bonus, IT teams are relieved from the need to handle user support tickets for policy exceptions

Allowing Developers to Work Freely on Their Corporate Device

In many organizations, the security policy applied by IT imposes significant overhead on the productivity of employees in different groups, such as developers, researchers and road-warriors.

  • Employees cannot browse the web, install software, or use USB devices and other hardware.
  • When using VPN, all web traffic goes through the organizational network which impacts user experience and requires more network capacity to be added.
  • When IT makes compromises to allow productivity, this can result in security and compliance risk.

So How Can Companies Maintain Worker Productivity on Corporate Endpoints?

Hysolate can be instantly deployed on corporate machines to provide employees with a workspace that is completely segregated from their corporate environment, where they can be free from limitations that are otherwise applicable in the corporate environment.

  • Users are much more productive with the ability to browse the web, install software, etc.
  • The user experience is great — even when using VPN to browse.
  • Security posture is not compromised, but rather it’s actually enhanced, with the ability to further harden the corporate environment.
  • And as an operational bonus, IT teams are relieved from the need to handle user support tickets for policy exceptions
