Network security on a browser level

This lightweight extension is set up on your company's Virtual Private Gateways, providing browser-level protection and safeguarding your online activity when accessing web-based resources.

No more OS incompatibility issues

If you are unable to install the NordLayer application due to compatibility issues with your operating system, you can instead install the extension on a supported browser. This will allow you to securely access your company's network and resources.

Sometimes there’s simply no time – you need secure access to your company network right here and now. That’s why we made it super fast to set up – just a few clicks and your connection is secured.

The browser extension encrypts data only at the browser level, resulting in reduced internet usage, faster speeds, and improved performance for locally installed apps like Slack, email, and other everyday tools.

If your business operates in multiple countries, there's no need to route your entire computer network traffic just to assess performance in the destination country. Now, you can conveniently check this at the browser level alone.

If your team has contractors and freelancers in the mix, the browser extension helps maintain the security of your organization's network and resources, no matter who is connecting to them.


Setting up your NordLayer Browser Extension

Once a user downloads the extension, logging in and using it is super easy. However, for network administrators, a Virtual Private Gateway with a dedicated server is required to deploy this solution. If you already have one, request access in the Control Panel to enable the extension. Please note that this add-on grants access exclusively to Virtual Private Gateways, not Shared Gateways.
