The activation of browser-native security controls also ensures near zero impacts to website performance and limitless scaling capabilities.

“Changes to the web over the past decade necessitate new approaches to security,” said Tala Security Co-Founder and CEO Aanand Krishnan. “We see a meshing of digital commerce and security concerns. Tala is the only solution that can enable organizations to embrace these imperatives by enabling modern web, safeguarding against the broadest range of client-side attacks with zero impact on performance.”
