Island | March 09, 2023
On March 8, 2023, Island, the pioneer and leader in the Enterprise Browser industry, offered support for legacy applications that depend on Internet Explorer (IE), with Microsoft continuing to carry out its planned End of Life for the IE browser. With the Island Enterprise Browser, you can use modern controls like device posture assessment, multi-factor authentication, and comprehensive last-mile protections to keep your sensitive data safe while still using legacy applications that rely on IE.
Mike Fey, Island CEO and Co-Founder remarked, “As much as we’d like to think all applications are cloud-based SaaS at this point, the reality is that there are thousands of applications written years ago that remain business-critical and require Internet Explorer to operate. Our customers have asked us to help them migrate with as little disruption as possible, and we are more than happy to do so and provide additional value in the process.” He added, “Island’s Enterprise Browser can provide effortless compatibility for legacy applications, giving customers the runway they need to migrate to modern web applications. And on top of essential compatibility, customers also gain the unique visibility, control and business productivity that are hallmarks of the Island Enterprise Browser.”
With the Island Enterprise Browser, the traditional idea of a web browser being a passive display layer is replaced with an active control plane, giving security and IT departments more control, visibility, and efficiency than ever before. Business continuity is ensured by introducing the Island Enterprise Browser to make the switch from Internet Explorer easier and by adding a lot of new and cutting-edge features.
Some of new capabilities are:
Compatibility with the rendering modes of Internet Explorer 5–11
Maintaining the integrity of the underlying legacy technologies like ActiveX, Silverlight, Flash, and Java
Complete visibility into and auditing of every mission-critical application activity without the requirement for third-party add-ons
The use of robotic process automation to modify existing web applications so that they conform to the specific requirements of a company's workflows for using legacy and other application types
A user-controlled launcher that can be used to ease people into using new software.
Advanced network routing for on-premise, private cloud, and SaaS applications
Enterprise-branded in-app messages for user guidance.
End-user productivity aspects for ideal employee experience
The Island Enterprise Browser:
The future desktop, the Island Enterprise Browser, protects users and data as they engage with SaaS and internal web apps.

Reducing complexity and user experience friction helps IT teams gain control, operational simplicity, and end-user productivity.
Island, headquartered in Dallas, is the pioneer of the Enterprise Browser, the perfect enterprise workplace where work flows freely and securely. Island gives enterprises complete control, visibility, and governance over the last mile while providing users with a pleasant Chromium-based browser experience.
