Dell Releases Virt-Based Tool for Secure Browsing

If you want to add an extra layer of security protection between your network and the Internet, you may want to check out the Dell Kace "Secure Browser."

Security is enhanced by using a "virtualized instance" of the Firefox browser, keeping any malware that may be encountered contained from the user's PC. Dell explains that "when using the Secure Browser, any changes or malicious files inadvertently downloaded from the Internet are contained within the secure browser, keeping the underlying OS and computer secure from hostile changes."

The tool, long part of Dell Kace's K1000 management appliance, is now available on it's own -- and for free. Download it here.
