Conceal, an MSSP and web browser protection platform provider, has announced a strategic partnership with European consulting firm ThousandGuards.

With the partnership, Conceal will provide its ConcealBrowse web browser isolation and zero trust technology to ThousandGuards customers in Spain, France, Italy and Portugal, according to a prepared statement.

In addition, the Conceal partnership represents a "compelling opportunity" for ThousandGuards and service providers across Europe, ThousandGuards founder Juanjo Martinez said. Conceal provides ThousandGuards customers with protection against web-based attacks. It also enables these customers to isolate malware from their devices and networks.

How ConcealBrowse Works

ConcealBrowse uses an intelligence engine that can "dynamically and transparently pre-process and analyze code and move suspicious, unknown and risky code to a cloud-based isolation environment," Conceal stated. It detects and isolates malicious, unknown internet activity across an organization's applications, identifies risky internet traffic and distinguishes known "good" URLs from dangerous ones. From here, ConcealBrowse lets good URLs move through a normal path.

ConcealBrowse also helps organizations make decisions about the security risks associated with Internet use, Conceal noted. ConcealBrowse also automatically isolates risky Internet transactions and ensures that all browsing activity takes place in our isolated environment.

What ConcealBrowse Offers MSSPs

ConcealBrowse provides MSSPs with the ability to protect their customers against web browser threats, Conceal pointed out. It serves as a drop-in solution that MSSPs can integrate into their existing security packages. ConcealBrowse offers security telemetry data that MSSPs can use in combination with security information and event management (SIEM) technologies and other security tools.

MSSPs can join Conceal's partner program to bundle ConcealBrowse into their security services and boost their revenues, the company stated. In 2022, UK-based MSSP Barrier Networks, BlueAlly company Virtual Graffiti and several other cybersecurity technology providers joined Conceal's partner program. Conceal continues to pursue partnership opportunities and looks poised to further expand its partner program.
