What is Bromium Endpoint Protection?
Bromium Endpoint Protection, a module of Bromium Advanced Endpoint Security, transforms endpoint security with a revolutionary new architecture that focuses on protection through CPU-enforced isolation. Bromium Endpoint Protection protects desktops and laptops without requiring signatures or updates. It defeats and automatically discards malware, eliminating the need for costly remediation. Bromium Endpoint Protection empowers users to access the information they need without putting your enterprise at risk. Because it is transparent to users, it enhances their productivity and offers them the flexibility to work anywhere — from home, hotels, airports or cafes — without risk of compromise.
How It Works
Bromium Endpoint Protection is built on the Bromium Microvisor, a Xen-based, security-focused hypervisor designed to automatically isolate each vulnerable user task, such as visiting a website, opening a document, or accessing a USB drive. Malware entering a micro-VM cannot modify the operating system or gain access to local or enterprise data or network infrastructure. Whenever an isolated task attempts to access files, networks, devices or the clipboard, or to interact with the user, the hardware interrupts execution and passes control to the Microvisor, which applies task-specific policies on a strictly need-to-know basis. The power of isolation is also applied to unknown file-based executables, ensuring that malicious executables cannot run on the protected endpoint.
Why You Need It
Traditional security solutions rely on detection of malicious content and often fail to block attacks that use unknown zero-day exploits or advanced persistent threats (APTs). Bromium uses isolation to stop known and unknown attacks without disrupting the user experience. In addition, Bromium streamlines IT processes, reducing and even eliminating:
- compromises on endpoints
- costly remediation and reimaging
- the need for urgent security-related patching
- the noise and cost of security alerts and the wasted effort of chasing false positives
Organizations improve their security while lowering their costs and increasing productivity.
