What is Browser Sandboxing?

Hi Anna,

Browser sandboxing is the isolation of web content within a browser to prevent malicious code from escaping onto the host computer system. This provides an additional layer of security for users by preventing malware from compromising the host system through vulnerabilities in the browser application or plugins.

There are several ways to implement browser sandboxing. The most common is for a security product to monitor network traffic as it arrives at and leaves the browser. Other methods involve isolating processes from each other or deliberately limiting the privileges of certain processes.

Browser sandboxes are typically associated with organizations that have high compliance requirements, such as financial institutions, retailers, and healthcare providers. They also appeal to consumers who want greater protection against drive-by downloads and scams.
