Menlo Security has emerged from stealth with $25 million in new funding to put toward developing its solution, which it says is a new take on email and web security that will overhaul the way security companies approach fighting malware.
The Menlo Park, Calif.-based company’s Isolation Platform works by isolating all web and email content in the cloud before it reaches the endpoint, then uses its Adaptive Clientless Rendering solution to deliver a mirror presentation to the end user. The “magic” of the solution lies in being able to preserve the user experience while still isolating both good and bad content in the cloud to prevent it from reaching the endpoint, Co-Founder and CEO Amir Ben-Efraim said in an interview with CRN.
As malware threats continue to inundate the industry, Ben-Efraim said the security industry needs to take a new approach if it wants to eliminate malware for web and email. This type of isolation solution could make a “big impact,” he said.
