The browser serves as the primary interface between the on-premises environment, the cloud, and the web in the modern enterprise. Therefore, the browser is also exposed to multiple types of cyber threats and operational risks.

In light of this significant challenge, how are CISOs responding?

LayerX, Browser Security platform provider, has polled more than 150 CISOs across multiple verticals and geolocations. They asked them about their security practices for SaaS access, BYOD, phishing, browser data loss and browser security. The results of this extensive poll can be found in the report “2023 Browser Security Survey”. In this article, we bring a taste of the report. You can read all the results and analysis here.

What These Findings Mean#

The interesting results of the survey have led LayerX analysts to conclude that while SaaS adoption is (unsurprisingly) on the rise, CISOs are still struggling to solve the security debt created by the transition to the cloud. Threats like phishing, account takeover and unsanctioned apps are top concerns for CISOs, who are looking for solutions that can mitigate them.

However, existing network solutions aren’t able to provide a secure means. This is because solutions used by on-prem organizations such as device trust, CASB or network proxies, are losing effectiveness once the organization transitions to the cloud. As a result, in most companies they are not implemented across all environments. In addition, popular solutions like MFA also aren’t able to deliver on their promise.

So what can CISOs do? Since the problem stems from the browser, it requires a browser security solution.
