Security Options

Antamedia Secure Browser uses Internet Explorer as a core and builds a secure browsing environment with additional features.

A variety of features that you can configure may increase or decrease security level, which mostly depends on the type of application or website that will execute in the Secure Browser.

We recommend testing your application or website and adjusting available features until you achieve optimum performance and security.

These features can be configured from Kiosk – Browser – IE Security and Kiosk – Browser – Browser Security pages.

Some of the settings on these pages apply to Internet Explorer as well as Antamedia Secure Browser.
