What is Sandboxing?

Sandboxing is a computer security management system that separates concurrently running programs in order to keep one’s vulnerabilities from affecting the others’. This is a common method used to test unsecured or untested programs or those received from unknown third parties. It allows users to run such programs without the risk of causing harm to the rest of their system or files. Sandboxing can also be used to investigate files or programs that contain known security exploits such as viruses or malware.
