What is Browsium Ion?

Browsium Ion is an enterprise web application remediation and browser management solution, designed to simplify browser migration and enable IT to maintain control over browser compatibility and security.

Ion was developed specifically to enable legacy IE-dependent line-of-business web applications to run in modern versions of Internet Explorer, such as IE11. It is a software solution that achieves application compatibility by giving enterprise IT granular control of their browser environments, optimizing both legacy and modern web application compatibility and security. Ion goes far beyond Microsoft Enterprise Mode, enabling IT to change Internet Explorer document modes, inject HTML, CSS, and JavaScript on the fly, set custom registry entries, and swap in the required legacy versions of Java, at the web application or even web page level. This maximizes compatibility for all business-critical applications while simultaneously maximizing security for Internet browsing.

This is all done within a single-browser solution that is completely invisible to end-users. By managing the browser environment directly, IT gains control over the timing and sequencing of web application upgrades. Ion does this by running legacy IE-dependent web applications side-by-side with more current applications. This enables easy migration to the most current release of Internet Explorer on each Windows platform, with confidence that business-critical applications will continue to run.

Using this browser management solution enables enterprises to avoid the cost and complexity of virtualization – but Ion can also seamlessly complement virtualization solutions when they’re deployed to meet broader IT objectives. Ion extends the ROI of already deployed and purchased applications by allowing those applications to run on a modern browser platform with no server-side code changes.

Ion is part of Browsium’s browser management platform which provides enterprise IT with granular control of their browser environments, to optimize both web application compatibility and security. This platform enables a quick and cost-effective response to changes in web technology, without compromising legacy or modern business applications.
