In 3 bullets, summarize why this product or service is different from the competition and deserves recognition:
● Hysolate Rearchitected Endpoints for Privileged Workstation Security
● Hysolate Blocks Cyberattackers from Privileged Information
Each VM’s network access is limited according to the security zone it belongs to. The internet VM can only access the wild internet; the corporate VM can only access non-privileged corporate network, the privileged VM can only access privileged resources on the network.
● Hysolate Keeps Privileged Users Productive, Costs Down
There’s no swiveling or lugging multiple laptops. Privileged users can access the resources they need, without endangering/compromising corporate assets.
IT saves management and troubleshooting time, and doesn’t have the costs associated with multiple laptops per user.
Cyberattackers target privileged users in order to access privileged accounts. A Cybersecurity Insider study found more than 85 percent of cybersecurity professionals believe isolating privileged environments is critical to protecting corporate crown jewels.
However, traditional approaches to privileged access result in high IT labor and CapEx costs, lost productivity, and frustrated end-users.
Even if they segment networks and protect privileged credentials with Privileged Access Management, attackers who compromise privileged users’ workstations can immediately interact in the user’s name to access sensitive assets, leak data or do harm. To combat this, many companies give each privileged user two separate physical devices: one for day-to-day corporate work and Internet access, and another — often called a Privileged Access Workstation (PAW) — that’s fully locked down and dedicated to sensitive tasks and information.
This physical air gap strategy isn’t sustainable. Each privileged user loses about five hours of productivity/week due to shifting back-and-forth between workstations. When travelling, they lug around two devices. The IT team manages twice the inventory, and then there’s the cost of maintaining extra physical devices.
The Hysolate Platform enables a radically different, much more effective approach to PAW. For the first time, each user has multiple, fully isolated environments on a single physical device, separated via a virtual air gap.
Hysolate is the only solution that uses virtualization to seamlessly split a single physical workstation into multiple, completely separate local virtual machines (VMs), each with its own segregated operating system (OS). It does this in a way that is seamless to the end-user. Everything the user interacts with – including all applications and OSes – runs in the appropriate VM. Cyberattackers cannot access privileged information or even see that it exists.
In contrast to traditional PAW approaches, Hysolate’s results in lower IT labor and CapEx costs, gained productivity, and happy end-users.
