Microsoft’s Remote Browser to Offer Better Security

Remote Browser Market

The function of the remote browser is to redirect web browsing from other endpoints and commercial networks. The remote browser secures all possible harmful contents by placing itself amid the web and the users, as a result of which, a number of cyber-attacks get excluded against users. As the harmful websites, URLs and emails are ways through which end-users are attacked, redirecting web browsing from other networks will help malware to be away from the system of the end-user. This minimizes the likely risks of cyber-attack.

Knowing the importance and benefits regarding the remote browser system is essential in today’s modern world, which continues to run on browsing through information from the World Wide Web. According to an ongoing study by Transparency Market Research, the demand for remote browsers will continue to gain traction in the near future. However, the study also reveals the hypercritical need for robust security in ensuring a steady expansion of the global remote browser market. New remote browsers entering the market are being equipped with high-level security measures, while developers of existing browsers are offering security patches.

Microsoft Edge browser offering better security than Chrome and other browsers

Google has been condemned by Microsoft due to its poor safety measures being carried out in Chrome web browser, which would eventually be misused by the hackers. This occurrence resulted in the Microsoft discovering that its own Edge web browser has better security benefits.

Jordan Rabet from the team of offensive security research of Microsoft mentioned in a blog that, their discovery of   ‘CVE-2017-5121’ found out the possibilities of high risk in modern browsers. In addition, the possibilities for exploitation increases due to the nonexistence of RCE (remote code execution) improvements in Chrome. Rabet also added that before patches are provided to customers, Chrome’s vulnerability servicing process can create public disclosure of security flaw details.

A report in Engadget states that Google has solved the issues that it was facing. According to Microsoft, fixing the issues doesn’t always solve the matter. It says that the fixes have to be functional before the public discovers about it. There’s nothing new in the news about the disputes between Google and Microsoft. For instance, in the former year, Google made the issue of security errors in Windows public, even before Microsoft could fix the part. As a consequence of which, Terry Myerson, the chief of Windows criticized Google through a post in a blog for not revealing efficient safety measures. The study sketched by NSS Labs, it says that, from 36,120 test cases that were carried out, Microsoft Edge blocked 92.3% of phishing URLs compared to 61.1% Firefox blocked and 74.5% that Chrome blocked.
