Ericom Software, an editor of Zero Trust Browser Isolation and Secure Access solutions, today announced its partnership with software specialist Softprom. Together the companies will deliver Ericom Shield Zero Trust Remote Browser Isolation (RBI) to Softprom’s partners throughout the region, thanks to its offices in Austria, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Moldova, Russia and Ukraine. The award-winning Ericom Shield solution prevents ransomware, advanced web-borne threats, and phishing attacks from impacting devices and networks by executing active web content in a remote, isolated container in the cloud or on-premises. "We were impressed with Softprom’s expertise in providing and servicing IT and cybersecurity solutions for its customers. The company has a proven track record of delivering the world’s leading-edge technologies through its partnerships and will be a key component of our growth in Europe", said David Canellos, CEO and President of Ericom Software.

The Ericom Shield Zero Trust Remote Browser Isolation solution prevents ransomware, advanced web threats, and phishing attacks from reaching user endpoints by executing active web content in a remote, isolated container. Whether users browse to a malicious site independently or by clicking a URL embedded in a phishing email, they are completely safe since no web content is ever executed directly on their device. An interactive media stream representing the website is sent to a device’s browser, providing a safe, fully interactive, seamless user experience. Websites launched from URLs in emails can be rendered in read-only mode to prevent users from entering credentials for additional phishing protection. Attached files are sanitised before being transmitted to endpoints, ensuring that malware within downloads cannot compromise users’ devices. "We are excited to add Ericom Shield’s award-winning RBI technology to our cybersecurity vendor network. We see synergies for our customers from integration of Ericom products with Web Secure Gateways and other already used products. Ericom’s innovative Zero Trust Browser Isolation solution helps address key cybersecurity risks that organisations face and is an excellent addition to our portfolio", added Pavlo Zhdanovych, managing director of Softprom. Softprom offers a variety of services including IT infrastructure analysis and evaluation, order and risk management, pre-sale and technical support, marketing and lead generation, training and certification, among others. "Softprom’s commitment to customer service was a key factor in choosing them as our partner. Organisations need a trusted solution and service providers capable of assisting them in selecting, deploying and using software solutions and cloud services that can secure their operations from the advanced security threats they face each day. This partnership provides that for our customers", concluded Matthew Howes, Ericom's director of Channels in the EMEA.
