The virtual surf environment "Browser in the Box" has been developed by Sirrix in collaboration with the German Federal Office for Information Security. The solution enables users to surf through the Internet with confidence even when using most modern and comfortable web technologies without limitation despite otherwise usual advice.
Now with support of terminal servers and virtualized server environments.
On the basis of a "Browser in the Box"-concept a virtual machine is provided with a reduced operating system and a web browser encapsulated therein. Malware can't thus penetrate the host operating system and a potential damage in the separated virtual machine will vanish with each start of the browser by returning to a certified starting point. All of that is fully transparent to the user.
