The partnership will support in turning any browser into the most protected & manageable workspace in the Middle East.
Dubai, United Arab Emirates, December 18, 2023 — Evanssion, a leading cybersecurity and cloud-native security distributor, announces its distribution partnership with LayerX, the leading Enterprise Browser Extension. This collaboration aims to revolutionize the landscape of browser security in the Middle East by combining Evanssion’s extensive cybersecurity expertise with LayerX’s cutting-edge browser extension platform.
According to Gartner®, “By 2030, enterprise browsers will be the core platform for delivering workforce productivity and security software on managed and unmanaged devices for a seamless hybrid work experience.”
LayerX was founded with a mission to change conventional web browsers by transforming them into secure workspaces without compromising user experience and privacy.
The concept stemmed from the limitations of browser isolation technology, where a browser operates within a virtual environment, preventing code execution on the endpoint and ensuring its benign nature. While this technology has been effective for decades, particularly in managing data on local machines, the landscape has evolved with the widespread adoption of SaaS applications. Browsers have now become the primary workspace for employees, necessitating a heightened focus on defending the browser itself.
LayerX extensions are seamlessly integrated into existing browsers, allowing organizations to monitor, analyze risks, and enforce policies based on user behaviour. Employees don’t need to transition from their favourite browsers, eliminating many blind spots that could occur when using multiple browsers concurrently.
Ahmad Al Qadri, CEO at Evanssion, said, “Partnering with LayerX will address the evolving challenges of browser cybersecurity in the region. This strategic partnership is consistent with our commitment to granting our customers and partners early access to the world’s most advanced and effective security solutions.”
Or Eshed, Co-Founder & CEO of LayerX, also shared their excitement, stating, “This partnership signifies a significant step forward in enhancing browser security measures to Middle East enterprises. LayerX is thrilled to work hand-in-hand with Evanssion to introduce seamless browser security that doesn’t compromise user experience while setting new industry standards.”
LayerX Browser Security Platform was purpose-built to monitor, analyze, and protect against web-borne cyber threats and data risks. Delivered as an enterprise browser extension, LayerX natively integrates with any browser, transforming it into the most secure and manageable workspace – while maintaining top user experience. Using LayerX, customers gain comprehensive protection against all browsing risks and threats that either target the browser directly or attempt to utilize it as a bridge to the organization’s devices, apps, and data.
