The design philosophy of Passages is based on the principle of “security by isolation” – separating dangerous processes and your local machine. To that end, every session in Passages is fully virtualized and isolated at the system, network, and identity levels. This ensures that any malware or malicious content encountered during a browsing session is contained and confined from other user sessions, the user’s local computer, and the corporate network. When Passages launches, the browser and its entire operating environment are created anew in a hardened virtual machine from a known, clean, and safe image assured by a cryptographic signature. This prevents malware from persisting between sessions. Network isolation provides further protection by segregating all communications from the local network, preventing any malware from scanning or attacking other devices on the local network.
