Today we issued a maintenance release of our browser management suite, with updated versions of Browsium Proton, Ion, and Catalyst. These three modules comprise the first-ever end-to-end browser management suite, designed to address the hidden risks inherent in enterprise web application environments.

Highlights in this release include:

  • Improves performance for initial client reporting of inventory information, speeding up processing on the server by many orders of magnitude.
  • Improves performance of ActiveX inventory reporting in Proton Manager.
  • Fixes an issue where Java application activity may sometimes not get reported.
  • Fixes an issue that caused changes to the Active Directory Organizational Unit for some users to not be reported to the Proton server.
  • Fixes an issue with Catalyst on Windows 10 where an infinite redirect loop could occur if hopping across security zones, originating with a site that contains a JavaScript-based redirect.
  • There are no changes to Ion functionality in the 4.1.1 release. However, changes to Proton and Catalyst 4.1.1 necessitate deployment of Browsium Client 4.1.1, which in turn requires Ion Configuration Manager 4.1.1. Therefore, Ion customers using Proton or Catalyst 4.1.1 should also deploy Ion 4.1.1.

More details about these releases can be found in the release notes for each module linked to the table at the bottom of this post.

Why a browser management suite?

Today, enterprises rely on web applications for nearly every business task, yet they lack the tools to manage this browser-based end user workspace. Existing management solutions are designed around the old installed, executable application. Browser-based applications are very different, with applications compiled at runtime and no clear application boundaries. A new management paradigm is required for browser-based applications.

Managing the browser is more than Group Policy settings and controlling Security Zones. Your organization needs a complete browser management solution that gives you visibility, knowledge, and granular control of this mission-critical application platform. Our browser management suite gives you a new management toolset, so you can take command of your modern IT workspace to increase security and save money.
