Browsium Announces Availability of Catalyst Beta Download for Improving IT Security

Browsium, Inc. recently announced the availability of a beta download for its latest enterprise browser management solution, Browsium Catalyst. The multi-browser management solution has been developed to bring down helpdesk calls and enhance IT security by providing greater IT control by enterprise. Using Catalyst, IT can quickly provision the most compatible and secure browser which is ideal for each website on every single PC within the organization.

Browsium is one of the premier providers of enterprise-ready software solutions which enable affordable deployment, management, and operation of web browsers by organizations. In a statement, Matt Heller, Browsium Founder, and CEO, said, “The days of a single browser dominating the enterprise are over. IT now must maximize compatibility and security in a multi-browser enterprise and Browsium Catalyst delivers the tools they need to manage and secure the changing browser landscape.”

Since browser choice for the enterprise and end-users has expanding exponentially, an increasing number of IT organizations have to deal with multi-browser environments. And although multi-browser environments can address compatibility and security issues, they bring with them a number of management problems. 

Anytime end users navigate between legacy and modern business applications or use their browsers to access consumer sites over the Internet, the availability of multiple browsers can present considerable compatibility risks. Furthermore, the use of old versions of Internet Explorer can also add to network security risks. To combat each of these issues, Browsium developed the Catalyst.

Leveraging Catalyst, IT gains greater control over configuring the browser for opening each website on every PC within the organization. The Catalyst Configuration Manager can be used by IT to put into place Browser Rules across the enterprise. Additionally, with Catalyst, the right browser can be configured to open automatically thereby minimizing number of helpdesk calls.
