Checkpoint dishes out ForceField Virtual Appliance for browsers

Check Point

ZoneAlarm ForceField is the first virtualized, on-demand browser security solution to enable consumers to bank and shop online, or surf dangerous areas of the Internet without fear or limitation. Built from the ground-up specifically to fight the emerging classes of browser-based Web threats, ForceField also erases all personal information after a Web browsing session to further protect consumer privacy online. Features include browser virtualization, powerful anti-phishing technology, ZoneAlarm's Spy Site Blocker (also found in the award-winning ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite) and additional dangerous download defenses.

"ZoneAlarm ForceField uniquely defends against the escalating wave of malicious, privacy-infringing Web threats," said Laura Yecies vice president and general manager of Check Point's ZoneAlarm consumer division. "We use precision virtualization technologies and powerful data security principles to secure Web surfers in a two-way 'bubble of security,' uniquely protecting them from Web threats as well as spyware or keyloggers that may already reside on a PC."

"Utilizing Web browsers as a new primary attack vector, hackers and crackers are now heavily focused on stealing personal information for financial gain," said Charles Kolodgy, research director at IDC. "The result is a proliferation of Web threats, such as phishing attacks, drive-by downloads and keyloggers that pose enormous risk to personal privacy and invoke fear among consumers that have begun to significantly alter their online behavior."

Cloud Security: Eliminate humans from the "Information Supply Chain on the Web"

My upcoming article, part - 3 data center predictions for 2009, has a slideshot talking about the transition from the current age to the cloud computing age to eventually the ideation age- the age where you will have clouds that will emote but they will have no internal employees.

Biggest management disasters occur because internal folks are making a mess of the playground.

Om's blog is carrying an article about Cloud security and it is rather direct but also makes a lot of sense:

I don’t believe that clouds themselves will cause the security breaches and data theft they anticipate; in many ways, clouds will result in better security. Here’s why: Fewer humans –Most computer breaches are the result of human error; only 20-40 percent stem from technical malfunctions. Cloud operators that want to be profitable take humans out of the loop whenever possible.Better tools – Clouds can afford high-end data protection and security monitoring tools, as well as the experts to run them. I trust…
