The Dark Side of Chrome Extensions
Many businesses looking to use advanced technology for their browser and email are increasingly choosing G Suite and Chrome for Business & Enterprise. As the number of companies using Google’s services increases, attacks against Chrome become more prevalent and sophisticated—including malicious extensions. In order to stay on top of extensions that steal data, install dangerous software, or break compliance, it’s crucial to know what extensions are running in the first place.
Monitoring Your Extensions
To establish a monitoring and blocking procedure, you first need to audit your extensions. Traditionally, this requires scripts to run repeatedly and a malware detection system to delete extensions every time they’re added. That means a perpetual cycle of delete and re-install or scripts that typically break after updates and only work on Windows environments. Airlock lets you know what extensions are being run inside your business—by anyone, anywhere—with data that provides insight into potential malware threats and data loss, as well as policy and compliance violations.
