Bromium was founded in 2010 with a mission to restore trust in computing. The company’s founders, Ian Pratt and Simon Crosby have a long and deep history of innovation in virtualization and security. Inspired by the isolation principles of traditional virtualization, the Bromium team has created a game-changing new technology called micro-virtualization to provide powerful enterprise by protecting end users against advanced malware. Bromium has its headquarters in Cupertino, California and an R&D center in Cambridge, UK. The company is backed by top-tier investors, including Andreessen Horowitz, Ignition Capital, Highland Capital Partners, Intel Capital, Meritech Capital and Lightspeed Venture Partners.
Bromium is focused on the global enterprise security market. This market has long been dominated by detection-based security products, which use signatures, behaviors, or heuristics to identify potential threats. However, these technologies have become ineffective and unable to detect or protect against the growing number of polymorphic cyber threats, zero-day attacks, and APTs that are impacting enterprise organizations worldwide.
Bromium Secure Platform provides protection at the endpoint against all advanced malware. We automatically create hardware-isolated micro-VMs that secure every user task—such as visiting a web page, downloading a document, or opening an email attachment. Each task runs in its own micro-VM and all micro-VMs are separated from each other, and from the trusted enterprise network. If malware targets the end user, the threat is contained in the hardware-isolated micro-VM. Consequently, it is never able to steal or damage the user or enterprise’s information, and is destroyed when the task is completed. Bromium is transparent to the end user and has no discernible impact on user experience or system performance.
