Frequently asked questions

How is the solution offered? Cloud/SaaS, on-premise or hybrid?

We offer Cyberwall also as fully-managed, cloud-based service. Depending on requirements, hosting can be done in Germany or Switzerland with global pops. The hosting partners working with us offer different standardized support levels, which can be adjusted in accordance with the individual projects and requirements. Cyberwall can handle very large traffic volumes with of concurrent web sessions.

Cyberwall supports number of common virtualization environments (KVM, XEN, VMWARE) and Host Operating Systems (Linux, BSD, Solaris). Furthermore, most existing security architectures do not need adjustments for a Cyberwall deployment, because the traffic proxied by Cyberwall is normal HTTP traffic. We are happy to provide further technical specifications. Please drop us a quick note and somebody will get in touch shortly.

What is the footprint on end-user devices?

End user devices require a standard browser to display information streamed by Cyberwall. Because JavaScript is executed on the server the resource consumption (mostly CPU) on the end-user device is neclectable after the major parts of a page got streamed to the client. In general Cyberwall requires less resources than a normal web session, except of some peak CPU shortly after initialization.

What level of integration is possible with enterprise security event management platforms?

Cyberwall can be integrated into existing Web Proxy Solutions where potentially harmful pages can be rendered. A rule can be set-up to render e.g. facebook and linkedin on Cyberwall without exposing the end-user browser to JavaScript-based attacks executed via complex HTML5 applications. At the moment there isn’t any integration into event management platforms as long our security model is based on immunization and not on detection.

Cyberwall is designed for simple integration with your existing network and security infrastructure. Integration is done by redirecting traffic to Cyberwall using modification of URLs. All the rest gets handled by Cyberwalls automagically.

How well is the user-experience maintained?

Cyberwall uses normal Browser functionality to display web content. Web pages are mirrored from server to client using a proprietary protocol. This results in the same user experience than a common browser. Things which are changing the perceived user experience are: (1) Different page loading icon; (2) No support for Adobe Flash by default; (3) Integrated Ad-Blocker (can be disabled); (3) 2nd Browser bar to visualize the technology; (4) The normal Browser’s printing dialog needs to be triggered using a different button.

Cyberwall users access the Internet via a complete browser engine executed remotely. All features of modern HTML5 websites are fully supported. Users interact using a fully-transparent JavaScript thin-client running inside their normal browser. The local browser just needs to support HTML5 and JavaScript! Using our unique Browser-in-Browser approach web surfing suddenly becomes very secure.

What browsers & platforms are supported?

Cyberwall supports all modern browsers (Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Edge, Opera), Operating Systems (Windows, Linux, Mac OS, BSD) and even mobile devices such as tablets and smartphones.
