How Does WEBGAP Work?

On the user side, WEBGAP works as a private remote browser. This means that the user logs into a remote browser and their computer is physically isolated from the browser they are interacting with. This protects the user from any data tracking, malware, spyware, ransomware, malicious links, etc. while they are interacting with a browser. When the client logs out of WEBGAP, all and any recorded interaction with the browser ceases to exist.

This brief explanation from our CTO displays how remote browser isolation (RBI) is implemented here at WEBGAP:

" [We] have a remotely isolated browser engine (Chromium based) running in a container. The remote browser engine is responsible for fetching and rendering all resources from the origin server. Our browser engine is capable of converting the DOM tree of the rendered web page into a stream of pure data and sending to the client. Our client-side javascript re-constructs and updates the origin web page from the data stream and also sends back all mouse and keyboard events caught on the client side."
