Browsium Releases Catalyst Beta to Put IT in Control of Multi-Browser PC Environments

Managing which browser opens each site reduces helpdesk calls and improves IT security

REDMOND, WA — October 24, 2012 — Browsium Inc.’s latest enterprise browser management solution, Browsium Catalyst, is available for beta download today. The multi-browser management utility will reduce helpdesk calls and improve IT security by putting enterprise IT in control.  With Catalyst, IT can specify the most compatible and secure browser for each website on every PC in the organization, regardless of default settings and user behavior.

Multi-browser environments are today’s reality, even in the Enterprise

As browser choice has broadened for the enterprise and end-users, many IT organizations are faced with multi-browser environments.  Whether IT installs a second browser, or end users install and use the alternative browsers of their choice, this multi-browser trend is becoming increasingly common.

While multi-browser environments are often needed to address compatibility and security problems, they come with several management challenges.  When end users switch between legacy and modern business applications or access consumer sites on the Internet, multiple browsers pose compatibility risks.  In addition, using old versions of Internet Explorer on the Internet can compromise network security. These problems are solved with Catalyst.

Catalyst puts IT in control by letting them configure which browser opens each website on every PC in their organization. The Catalyst Configuration Manager makes it easy for IT to build Browser Rules and deploy them throughout the enterprise.  For end users, the process of using the most compatible browser is transparent.  The right browser opens automatically, reducing helpdesk calls and lost productivity from browser incompatibility and security issues.

“The days of a single browser dominating the enterprise are over,” said Matt Heller, Browsium Founder and CEO. “IT now must maximize compatibility and security in a multi-browser enterprise and Browsium Catalyst delivers the tools they need to manage and secure the changing browser landscape.”

Browsium Catalyst Beta Availability

The Browsium Catalyst Beta is now available to the public.  A free download can be found at  Pricing for Catalyst will be announced when Catalyst v1 is released, which is expected in the first quarter of 2013.
