How to Secure Web Browsing for Your Business

Web browsing is a crucial way for employees to use tools and systems for business via laptops and mobile devices, regardless of where they are. Cybercriminals use it as one of the most frequent methods of stealing information and gain access to systems.

There are many factors that go into secure web browsing, including ensuring that your browser is running the most up-to-date version, enabling features that block popups and other security threats. Also, it is important to ensure that plugins and extensions are secure (especially those downloaded from questionable sources) and keeping track of how websites handle encrypted communications using the browser. Furthermore, it is essential to inform employees about safe behavior when using a browser and to encourage users to report any suspicious behavior to the security staff of the administrative department as soon as possible.

The most secure browsers for secure browsing offer secure communication between the server and client. This can be achieved via HTTPS or, more often, with a lock icon, which indicates that a website is using encrypted communication. Browsers should also permit users to choose granular options, so they can control the way cookies are handled and which sites they may or shouldn’t visit. Browsers should also be fast and easy to use. Even the most secure browser will not perform if it is slow or difficult to use.

Finally, businesses should be aware that when the browser has the highest security settings it can trigger numerous alerts per day. This can cause employee burnout, so a balance must be found between setting security to the highest level and avoiding frequent warnings that could adversely affect the work environment.
