Bromium delivers the benefits of micro-virtualization and hardware based security to enterprise desktops, reducing the enterprise attack surface for all users without the need for new management tools or skillsets. The company’s solutions enable an exceptional end-user experience with its protect-first design, isolating threats before they can harm the enterprise.
Bromium vSentry™, based on the Bromium Microvisor™. protects Windows® PCs from undetectable advanced malware that attacks the enterprise through tricking users into opening poisoned attachments, documents and websites. vSentry enables IT to safely embrace key trends in mobility, and “anywhere, anytime” access - empowering users to collaborate, access cloud-hosted applications and the consumer web, and open unsafe documents and media without risk to enterprise information or infrastructure.
Bromium vSentry technology provides additional features like LAVA, or Live Attack Visualization and Analysis. LAVA automatically generates signatures for new attacks that legacy detection-centric tools can neither identify nor block, helping IT to rapidly achieve defense in depth. Additionally, vSentry includes the Bromium Management Server (BMS), which provides a centralized web service for vSentry policy management, collection of LAVA events from all desktops in the enterprise, and correlation of attack data.
Bromium vSentry helps enterprises to secure Windows® XP, both 32 and 64 bit versions of Windows 7, and virtual desktops delivered with Microsoft Remote Desktop Services (including Citrix XenDesktop and VMware View). vSentry is licensed per-user, enterprise wide, and priced according to volume.
Bromium was founded in 2011 by Gaurav Banga, Simon Crosby and Ian Pratt. The company’s founders led development of the Xen® hypervisor as well as the creation of HyperSpace, the world’s first firmware–integrated client hypervisor. The company is based in Cupertino, California.
