Frequently Asked Questions

Native Browser Isolation

  • Apozy Airlock does not need a VPN and works anywhere there is an internet connection.

  • Yes! Apozy offers extension monitoring and blocking through the Airlock console with links to CRXcavator for security assessments.

  • Yes it can! Monitor site access to account information with OAuth through the Airlock console.

  • Airlock uses a petabyte-scale visual model database that accounts for context within the browser in order to identify malicious sites in real time—even if they’ve never been reported or seen before.

  • Native browser isolation relies on technology that is already built into major browsers to deliver a sandboxed, safe environment. Specifically, it employs CSP headers to make malicious pages “read-only”. For more information, read our blog post.

  • Apozy Airlock protects the user from modern social engineering attacks that anti-virus would not be able to detect. For example, a website might impersonate a brand that the user trusts in order to get the user to enter sensitive information. The website may not have any malware on it, so anti-virus will not raise any warnings. Apozy Airlock will determine the website to be suspicious and immediately sandbox the page so that the user is prevented from accidentally entering their information.

Ad Block

  • Ad blocking is centrally managed through the Airlock console. There is no need for a DNS filter or other managing extensions. Use flexible filters and auto-categorization in the console to block ads across your entire organization.

  • Yes! Airlock blocks full URLs with the click of a button. Content filters typically rely on predetermined lists—Airlock dynamically scans malicious sites and blocks them.

  • Unlike DNS ad block, which only blocks domains, Airlock prevents dangerous client-side attacks with cosmetic ad block. Ads are completely removed from the page.

SSL Inspection

  • Yes! Airlock integrates with many popular communication channels such as email and Slack to learn your organization's safe behavior patterns and block suspicious links.

  • By deploying to the browser, Airlock doesn’t have to break SSL to inspect traffic — it reports full, unencrypted URLs and metadata without passing traffic through a gateway.

  • When you get an incident alert, Airlock automatically makes a visual timeline of user, machine and request information that would normally take a skilled analyst hours to complete. You can specify blocking with expressive URL patterns and rules, auto-assign issues to your security teams, and create security policies for different people in your organization with the click of a button.

  • Yes! With Apozy Airlock, you still get access to URL data regardless of changes to encryption standards—and always will. For more information, read our blog post.

  • Airlock integrates with the tools you already use like Slack and email, so you are notified the exact moment an incident occurs. It supports all forms of SSL to ensure your data stays yours.


  • Apozy deploys to all browsers: Google Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Microsoft Edge.

  • Airlock is deployed as a lightweight browser extension that eliminates the need for configuration, a proxy, or managed infrastructure.

  • Yes! Apozy Airlock can be deployed to Chromebooks through the Google Chrome Store.

User Experience

  • Yes! Single Sign-on is set up on with your organization ID.

  • No. Pages load as fast as usual, because our solution doesn’t need to pass internet traffic through a proxy.

  • Airlock is committed to respecting the privacy of our users. We collect very little personal information—and what information we do collect is used to provide our product and services.
