The Virtual Environment for secured and comfortable Web Browsing: On the basis of a “Browser-in-the-Box” concept a virtual machine is provided with a reduced operating system and a web browser encapsulated therein. Malware can’t thus penetrate the host operating system and a potential damage in the separated virtual machine will vanish with each start of the browser by returning to a certified starting point. All of that is fully transparent to the user.
Protection against malware and data Leakage

In contrast to simple sandboxing methods provided by standard browsers BitBox isolates all activities of the browser completely from the host operating system. Merely a single shared folder within the host is made accessible for a separate user account. This folder stores all persistent configuration data like favorites of the browser. Equally all downloaded files are initially stored in this folder and are only forwarded into the normal user accessible download folder after a malware scan. More Info »

Besides this extensive protection of the host system against any attacks from the Internet BitBox prevents reliably any uploads of files into the Internet. Hence, the confidentiality of critical company or authority information is not already jeopardized by simply providing Internet access to its employees.

BitBox provides thus, a cost efficient and carefree surf environment without any limitation in comfort. The expensive and complex usage of dedicated terminal servers as an alternative for secure surfing can be avoided. The performance impact is minimal for today’s computer architectures. More Info »
