Member News | NordLayer launches a new and one-of-the-kind Browser Extension


May 25, 2023

The NordLayer team is happy to announce that from now on, people can access their business resources via a browser extension. The extension introduces a new way of working for teams operating with hybrid-cloud resources while retaining stable and fast connection speeds and robust security.

The extension, operating within browser limits, is a lightweight option for organizations to use for work and browsing the internet at blazing speeds whilst maintaining the security standard that they are used to when using NordLayer desktop and mobile apps. Moreover, when using Browser Extension, users can access the organization’s different private gateways simultaneously.

“The NordLayer Browser Extension defines a simple, intuitive, and effective security approach developed by NordLayer. This add-on is an alternative solution for enriching existing ways to secure online activities,” says Artūras Bubokas, a product manager at NordLayer.

Easy to set up and log in, the browser extension provides quick access to web-based company resources. Also, the extension solves potential NordLayer application and customer OS compatibility issues while allowing them to use it on their browser alone. By being a lightweight solution and encrypting data only at the browser level, this solution offers reduced internet usage, faster speeds, and improved performance compared to the desktop application.

Compatible with different ways of working

NordLayer’s browser extension is compatible with Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Microsoft Edge browsers, allowing connection to virtual private gateways created by the organization owner, with all network security policies applied.

“It’s a perfect solution for those who have devices without the usual operating systems, like ChromeOS. It brings more flexibility when several different gateways need to be used simultaneously on one device by encrypting data only at the browser level, reducing internet usage, giving faster speeds, and improving performance for locally installed apps. The extension comes as a very handy and quick solution to provide secure internet access in a few clicks,” adds Bubokas


NordLayer — an adaptive network access security solution for modern businesses. It helps organizations of all sizes to fulfill scaling and integration challenges. Moving towards an ever-evolving SSE ecosystem, NordLayer is quick and easy to implement with existing infrastructure, hardware free, and designed with ease of scale. As a cloud-native solution with an easy-to-use interface, NordLayer offers protection to businesses of any size, complexity, or work model, including remote or hybrid workplaces. More information:

Annual Report on Foreign Investment in France

The “2022 Annual Report on Foreign Investment in France” published on May 11, 2023 by Business France features 1,725 foreign investment projects that have created or maintained 58,810 jobs nationwide. While the number of job-creating investment projects recorded increased by 7% compared with 2021, the increase in the number of jobs created or maintained is historic, up 31% compared with 2021.



These results strengthen France’s attractiveness as an investment location and prove that foreign investors still trust France. This is also evidenced by the “EY France Attractiveness Survey 2023”, also published on May 11, 2023. It mentions that nearly two-thirds of company directors have immediate investment projects in France in 2023; and that for the fourth consecutive year, France has come in first place for foreign investment projects in Europe.

Surge in Corporate Insolvencies Hits Central & Eastern Europe (CEE) in 2022

Corporate insolvencies in Central & Eastern Europe (CEE) witnessed a significant increase in 2022, driven by high energy prices, soaring input costs, prompt interest rate hikes, historic inflation levels, and uncertainty surrounding the war in Ukraine.

While eight countries, including Bulgaria, Croatia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, and Serbia, experienced a higher number of insolvencies, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Slovakia, and Slovenia recorded a decrease. This trend marked a reversal from the decline observed in 2020, with insolvency proceedings accelerating throughout 2021 and 2022.

Understanding these insolvency trends is crucial for policymakers and stakeholders in navigating the challenging economic landscape of the CEE region.

We are inviting to Check CEE Insolvencies study for more insights.
