OPSWAT Releases Latest Desktop Isolation Technology for Secure Browsing

OPSWAT announced the launch of a desktop isolation solution called Secure Virtual Desktop, which will enable users to access sensitive data from any computer without having to reveal their identity or location. OPSWAT specializes in providing software management SDKs, interoperability certification and multiple-engine malware scanning solutions.

In a release, Benny Czarny (News - Alert), CEO of OPSWAT, said, "We are really excited about the launch of Secure Virtual Desktop. With this technology, companies can protect their sensitive and confidential data accessed through SaaS (News - Alert) solutions like Salesforce, and SVD's proxy configuration allows users to privately browse the web without anyone, even Google, storing information about them."

The Secure Virtual Desktop solution creates an isolated environment for individuals to access the web and manipulate sensitive data. The solution is ideal for businesses and users as it immediately removes all activities that have taken place within the secure session. Hence, all downloads, file revisions, cookies and browser histories are fully removed upon the expiration of the session. Users will no longer have to worry about data lapses on public computers, hotel business centers and shared laptops as the solution provides them with a safe environment at all times.

Matt Dieckman, product line manager for secure remote access at SonicWALL, an SVD customer, said, "We integrated Secure Virtual Desktop into our Aventail (News - Alert) SSL VPN solution to enable our customers to protect sensitive data accessed on their remote machines. In a time when security breaches are making headlines every day, many companies have come to realize that data security for endpoint devices is paramount. SVD is an ideal solution to address those concerns, secure businesses and help prevent breaches from happening."

Organizations that are looking for advanced protection, will be able to use the SVD together with OPSWAT's MetaDefender for Secure Access technology, which will enable them to run a quick memory scan before launching their of the session. 

OPSWAT has created a five minute demo of Secure Virtual Desktop solution so that users can get a better idea of this solution can benefit them. To see a demo, please visit
