Jun 17, 2010 (11:06 AM EDT)


Helping global enterprises minimise threats through secure end-point web browsing

LONDON, June 17 /PRNewswire/ -- ITC Global Security, a leading information security and secure networking firm, today announce a global partnership with Quaresso, a leading provider of web browser security solutions. Delivering content to an end-point you do not control is a primary threat as browsers used for online transactions are at risk of account and data theft, and session hijacks. ITC will provide enterprises with website defence against these threats with the world's first managed service using Quaresso's Protect On Q on-the-fly browser security solution.

Protect On Q goes beyond traditional defences to protect the integrity and privacy of browser sessions, and safeguards content from malware or user derived compromises. It prevents malicious attacks via the Internet, including key logging and screen scraping by delivering a temporary, armoured browser to users. This is particularly valuable for sites handling personal information, such as Internet banking, healthcare, enterprise webmail or other highly-sensitive content. It is downloaded transparently and removed after the session is terminated. As a result companies can provide seamless, automatic security with outstanding data protection for web-based applications.

Mark Elliott, CEO, Quaresso noted: "We identified ITC as an ideal global partner because they are very experienced at improving visibility and control over large global estates, have in-depth security knowledge, a high-profile global customer base, and can uniquely deliver a fully managed security service. Partnering with ITC will deliver a win-win outcome for everyone."

Tom Millar, Managing Director, ITC Global Security comments: "ITC's agility allows us to introduce 'best-of-breed' services easily and Quaresso is a key addition to our portfolio, and complements our other services. It enables ITC to offer client security for customers providing cloud-based services, particularly in the finance sector where securing the user's browser is critical; Protect On Q helps achieve this."
