Trellix Teams Up with Google Chrome Enterprise for Protection Against Insider Threats

By Stefania Viscusi

Insider threats present a substantial risk to organizations today. Over the last five years, more than a third of chief information security officers worldwide have identified insider threats as contributing factors to major cybersecurity incidents. Further compounding this issue is the tendency for employees to inadvertently or deliberately share sensitive data via web browsers. This points to a critical need for enhanced web browsing security to safeguard organizations' confidential information.

In response to these challenges, cybersecurity firm Trellix, known for its extended detection and response (XDR) solutions, has partnered with Google Chrome Enterprise. The joint effort will fortify secure browsing protection against insider threats by proactively identifying and thwarting potential data leaks.

“This integration with Google Chrome Enterprise is a step toward a safer, more secure browsing future for enterprises and their users,” said John Morgan, XDR General Manager, Trellix. “With the rise in AI tools, data sharing will only increase. Trellix is committed to working with partners to deliver data loss prevention features to stop data leaks, eliminate insider threats, and protect sensitive data.”

Trellix's Data Loss Prevention (DLP) feature for Chrome Enterprise is seamlessly integrated into the Chrome Enterprise Recommended program as an integrated API. It offers superior performance and connectivity compared to previous Trellix DLP Chrome extensions. With the integration, organizations can monitor and block file uploads containing sensitive content, prevent the unauthorized copying and pasting of sensitive data within the Chrome browser, and regulate print activities. With these capabilities it is possible to effectively mitigate the risks of data leakage, addressing a primary concern associated with insider threats today.

"Our collaboration with Trellix is critical to advancing secure browsing protections for businesses," said Scott Porter, Managing Director of Android and Chrome Enterprise Partnerships. "With this new integration, we believe Trellix DLP Endpoint customers will benefit from a better experience and stronger security controls to identify and protect against potential data leaks."
