ESG Brief: Has the Web Browser Become the New Operating System?

Abstract:

End-users are increasingly relying on web browsers as their primary access to corporate applications and data. The most commonly used web browsers are Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Edge, and Apple Safari. Due to advances in technology, security, and internet speeds, browsers can provide several advantages in a corporate environment compared to PC and mobile operating systems. Yet browser security remains a major issue among IT professionals charged with managing security patches, updates, and policies as part of an overall end-user computing (EUC) strategy. As businesses accelerate the adoption of applications accessed through web browsers, and IT continues to improve support and security for multiple browsers, enterprises may one day treat browsers as the de facto operating system in a corporate environment.
