Menlo Security Delivers AI-Powered Web Browser Protection

Menlo Security has brought to market its Highly Evasive Adaptive Threats (HEAT) Shield and HEAT Visibility threat prevention capabilities that detect and block highly evasive threats targeting users via the web browser.

HEAT Shield and HEAT Visibility are now generally available across Menlo's global network, according to the company.

How Menlo Security HEAT Shield and HEAT Visibility Work

Highly evasive adaptive threats can spread laterally and deploy ransomware and other malicious payloads, Menlo said. They also can bypass many security technologies and turn browser windows into threat vectors.

Now, organizations can use HEAT Shield and HEAT Visibility to stop highly evasive adaptive threats before they can infiltrate their networks, Menlo stated.

HEAT Shield and HEAT Visibility are built on Menlo's Isolation Core, a cloud-based web and browser isolation platform that monitors and analyzes over 400 billion web sessions annually, the company stated.

With HEAT Shield, organizations can use artificial intelligence-based techniques like computer vision combined with URL risk scoring and analysis of a web page to identify and stop phishing attacks before they can infiltrate their networks, Menlo indicated.

HEAT Shield can determine if a link being accessed is a phishing site designed to steal a user's credentials. Furthermore, HEAT Shield can be utilized to power security policies applied to users based on web session events and behaviors and prevent attackers from accessing an organization's endpoints.

HEAT Visibility analyzes web traffic and applies AI- and machine learning-powered classifiers to identify attacks, Menlo noted. It then alerts security teams about these attacks.

Menlo Security Partners with Carahsoft, Netpoleon

The HEAT Shield and HEAT Visibility announcements come after Carahsoft in July 2023 became Menlo's public sector distributor. Under the agreement, Carahsoft is offering Menlo's Cloud browser and web security solutions to government agencies and other public-sector organizations, the companies said.

Previously, Menlo in May 2023 established a distribution agreement with Netpoleon, a cybersecurity solutions provider in the Asia Pacific region. Netpoleon offers Menlo's Cloud Security Platform to IT and security professionals in India and the South Asian Association for Regional Corporation (SAARC) region, the companies noted.

Menlo offers products and solutions that help organizations eliminate the threat of malware from the web, documents and emails. It provides the Boost! Channel Program for MSSPs, systems integrators (SIs) and technology distributors and resellers and continues to invest in its partner ecosystem.
