Bromium Commits to Fixing Endpoint Security Also in the UK

vSentry Set to Empower Users and Solve Endpoint Security for UK Enterprises

"Since running with our first product in North America just five months ago, the global response has been remarkable," said Ian Pratt, co-founder and SVP of Products at Bromium, as Bromium, Inc. this week announced its arrival into the UK market with the general availability of its vSentry product.
"A big part of our heritage is in the UK," he added,  "So it made sense to push on from here; we're committed to growing our engineering presence in Cambridge as well as addressing the local market and branching out into Europe."



Bromium, which employs a growing R&D/engineering team in Cambridge, has now added sales and support operations for the UK and wider European market and is recruiting a first wave of competent reseller partners to take Bromium into customers immediately.

Pratt continued:

"We have a unique and revolutionary solution to an old familiar problem - fixing endpoint security. Our technology stops 100% of threats, unknown and known, and empowers users with the freedom to get on with using IT and accessing the web, whether it's untrustworthy content or not, with a safe, non-disruptive experience."

vSentry, he explained, is built on the Bromium Microvisor - a security-focused hypervisor designed to automatically, instantly and invisibly hardware-isolate each vulnerable Microsoft Windows task in a micro-VM that is prevented from modifying Windows or gaining access to enterprise data or network infrastructure.

Whenever a task isolated within vSentry attempts to access files, networks, devices, the clipboard, or interact with the user, the hardware interrupts execution and passes control to the Microvisor, which enforces task-specific policies on a strictly "need-to-know" basis.

vSentry from Bromium is currently available for Windows 7, Explorer and MS Office environments with other platform releases planned soon. In addition, vSentry incorporates Live Attack Visualization and Analysis (LAVA), an analytics engine that allows Bromium to essentially monitor and record the entire attack process within the safe confines of an isolated Micro-VM. Both vSentry and LAVA can be configured and managed through the Bromium Management Server, enabling easier visibility and control over broad, enterprise-wide vSentry deployments.
