Web browsing is an essential method for employees to access business tools and systems, via laptops and mobile devices, regardless of where they are. It is also one of the most frequently used attacks and cybercriminals leverage it to gain access to data and systems.

Secure web browsing is a combination of various factors, including making sure the browser version you are using is the most recent and enabling features to block popups, checking that extensions and plug-ins work (especially those that were downloaded from unreliable sources) and observing the way websites handle encrypted communications via the browser. It is also essential to inform employees about safe behavior when using a browser and to have them report any suspicious behaviors to the administrative security teams whenever they can.

The best browsers for secure web browsing are those that support secure communication between the server and the user – either through HTTPS or, more commonly using a green lock icon click this over here now showing the website is using encrypted communications. Browsers must also allow users to set granular settings to determine the way cookies are handled and which sites they may or may not visit. Browsers should also be quick and user-friendly. Even the most secure browser will not do if it is slow or difficult to use.

Businesses must be aware the fact that a web browser that has a high level of security can trigger a number of warnings per day. This could result in employees becoming burnt out. It is essential to find a balance between setting security at the highest level and not allowing frequent alerts that can negatively impact the employee experience.
