Isolation policies

With Browser Isolation, you can define policies to dynamically isolate websites based on identity, security threats, or content.

​​ Isolate

When an HTTP policy applies the Isolate action, the user’s web browser is transparently served an HTML compatible remote browser client. Isolation policies can be applied to requests that include Accept: text/html*. This allows Browser Isolation policies to co-exist with API traffic.

The following example enables isolation for all web traffic:

Hostmatches regex.*Isolate

If instead you need to isolate specific pages, you can list the domains for which you would like to isolate traffic:
