How to Secure Web Browsing for Your Business

Web browsing is an essential method for employees to access the tools and systems of their business from their laptops or mobile devices, regardless of where they are. It is also one of the most frequently used attack vectors and cyber-attackers use it to steal data and gain access systems.

There are many elements that affect secure internet browsing, such as making sure your browser is running the most up-to-date version, enabling features to block pop-ups as well as other security threats, making sure that plugins and extensions are secure (especially those downloaded from questionable sources), and observing how websites handle encrypted communication through the browser. It is also essential to educate employees about the safe use of browsers and have them report any suspicious behaviors to the security departments of the administration as soon as they can.

The most secure browsers for secure web browsing support secure communication between the server and the client. This can be accomplished via HTTPS or more often with a lock icon, which indicates that a website is using encrypted communication. It is also important that browsers have flexible settings, allowing users to decide how cookies are used and what websites they can access and not. In addition, browsers must provide adequate performance. Even the most secure browser is useless if it has a slow speed and is difficult to use.

Finally, businesses should be aware that if an application has an extremely high security setting it could trigger numerous warnings throughout the day. This can cause employee burnout therefore a balance has to be found between setting security to the highest level and not triggering frequent alerts that could negatively impact the workplace experience.
