Today’s a big day. We are pleased to announce our latest product, Browsium Proton, a comprehensive web application inventory and analytics solution for the enterprise. It’s the first of its kind – designed specifically to deliver insights into your increasingly complex web application environment.
Proton offers IT teams an in depth understanding of browser-based enterprise environments. It provides comprehensive, granular, real-time data via a graphical dashboard, detailing the critical correlations between web applications, browsers, and add-ons. This gives IT teams the actionable insights they need to quickly make informed decisions and head off issues before they become serious problems.

Organizations today use a combination of native and web-based applications to deliver business tools for employees. IT is tasked with managing these various tools, but traditional desktop management solutions lack the ability to view, track, and understand browser-based applications.
Unlike traditional native applications, browser-based applications use an assortment of run-time components, assembled via data delivered from a combination of remote endpoints. This ‘just in time’ nature makes web-based applications hard enough to define, but nearly impossible to identify with existing application management solutions that are designed to work with the standalone, installed executable software model. There is more on this topic in our recent blog post.
While talking with our customers over the years, we’ve heard so many say: “We don’t have a baseline understanding of what web applications and browsers are being used across our organization.” Combine this with business unit management’s ability to easily provision SaaS applications directly, and IT is more vulnerable than ever before of being ‘out of the loop’ – all while being tasked with supporting their end users with the business applications they need.
Clearly, IT needs a way to gain a deep understanding of enterprise browser environments. In addition, they need to understand the dependencies between applications, browsers, and add-ons. Without this insight, they’re open to security risks, blocked or stalled migrations, compatibility issues, and under/over-utilizing web application software licenses.
That’s why we’ve developed Proton. It provides deep insights into the complexities of browser-based application environments so IT teams can make better informed decisions.
You may be familiar with Microsoft Site Discovery Toolkit – it’s designed around single, one-off end points as a data sampling tool for pre-migration efforts It is not an enterprise-ready management and reporting tool. Finding a way to make the information from Site Discovery Toolkit meaningful and usable can take weeks, if not months, of programming to manipulate the data into a usable, digestible format – and by then the data is most likely out of date.
Proton presents up-to-date data in a convenient, easy-to-consume dashboard format, along with the ability to dive into details using customized reports, which help IT teams make faster, better decisions.
Proton goes beyond simply providing raw usage data, delivering comprehensive inventory and analytics presented in easy-to-understand tables and charts. This allows IT teams to discover the critical correlations in their browser-based application environment.
