tuCloud first developed the Safeweb cybersecurity model in collaboration with the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA). We worked closely with Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) and Sandia National Laboratories (SNL) to develop an easy-to-use, cost-effective solution that physically isolated the browsing activity of thousands of simultaneous internet users. The name "Safeweb" is used used by thousands of federal government employees to describe the browser isolation platform they use to safely connect to the public internet. The Safeweb model leverages the principal of security through physical isolation; it has been tested in high security production environments over a four year period and thousands of federal government internet users. Leveraging the Safeweb model allows you to proactively secure the most common infiltration and exfiltration points on your network by physically your internet users, their browsers and their browsing activity from your internal networks.
Early iterations of the Safeweb model used non-persistent desktop virtualization technologies, with Safeweb users in 2010 being given a 'disposable desktop', one which was hosted on a physically isolated server and upon which they would browse the open internet. This approach to browser isolation is now considered to be legacy and increasingly modern browser isolation platforms leverage container based architectures, which are better suited to handling browsing compute loads at scale that their virtualization based counterparts. We were the first to launch a container based browser isolation platform, our Safeweb Engine was born out of the Safeweb model.
We have been working with different browser isolation technologies for close to a decade.
The Safeweb model is a production proven browser isolation cybersecurity model
co-developed with the NNSA.gov at Lawrence Livermore and Sandia National Laboratories.
