How Browse With Trust (BWT) Works
When the BWT Secure Browser is invoked, a Virtual Machine (VM) is started. BWT's Secure Browser runs on this VM. Virtualization segregates the BWTSecure Browser from the PC's file system and other processes running on the PC. In addition, BWT's patented AppGuard technology provides further protection that prevents cross contamination between the Windows PC and the Secure Browser VM. The AppGuard Protection enforces the following policy:
- The Secure Browser is not able to alter any folders on the PC with the exception of the Secure Compartment for more details about the Secure Compartment). This includes critical system components as well as documents in your “My Documents” folder.
- The Secure Browser cannot access any other host processes that may be running on the PC.
- Other processes running on the host PC cannot access the memory of the Secure Browser.
- Only authorized Applications on the host are permitted to access the Secure Compartment.
- Applications accessing files in the Secure Compartment are not permitted to alter critical system components.
When the BWT Secure Browser VM is closed, the VM reverts back to its original state so that any malware that may have infiltrated the VM while connected to a malicious website will be removed.
