Google buys sandbox maker GreenBorder

Posted on Thursday, May 31 2007 @ 02:15:21 CEST by

Google announced yet another acquisition today. This time it's GreenBorder, a Mountain View-based company that creates security software designed to protect a PC as you surf the web.
According to Silicon Valley Watcher, GreenBorder developed "an easy solution to virus, spyware, and trojan threats by isolating each Internet session from the rest of the PC and earlier Internet sessions. The beauty of the Green Border Pro software is it doesn't need to be updated to guard against new virus signatures or new types of malware. It creates a secluded, virtual Internet session and when you are done, it flushes everything away, in your cache and in temporary files."

The application was initially a sandbox for Internet Explorer, but now it also supports Firefox and lets you open files downloaded from the Internet in a virtual environment. Each application protected by GreenBorder has a colored border around the window, so you know you're safe.
