Enterprise organizations are heavily dependent upon browser-based line-of-business applications and cloud solutions. Traditional or native client applications have a well-defined set of management tools, but on-premises and cloud web applications are different, as is the complex browser environment in which they operate. This creates a large blind spot for IT, and new challenges, which become costly when not managed.
How Browser Management Helps
Managing web applications – designed on a model of just-in-time compilation inside the browser, across thousands of end-user devices – requires visibility and control traditional desktop and network management tools can’t provide. With browser management, you gain understanding and control of your browser which enables you to save money, improve security, and increase efficiency in your environment.
Browser Environment Challenges
The complexity of enterprise browser environments, the rapid cycle of innovation in web browsers and web standards, along with your increasing internal business requirements create IT challenges which you can place into three categories:
Discovery & Rationalization – you need real-time knowledge about what web applications and related components run in the browser, on-premises and in the cloud, across your enterprise, and know who uses them, to reduce risk and save money.
Migration & Compatibility – you need to keep up with new operating system and browser releases (such as Windows 10 with its new Edge browser), and monthly security patches, without compromising application compatibility.
You’re not alone with these challenges. Take a look at this complete list of common enterprise browser challenges and Browsium solutions.
