Partnership enables customers to effectively defeat and mitigate advanced attacks
Cupertino, Calif. – February 18, 2014 – Bromium®, Inc., a pioneer in trustworthy computing, today announced integration efforts between Bromium Live Attack Visualization and Analysis (LAVA™) and the Palo Alto Networks security platform. The integration will combine both technologies to provide automated malware response, protecting the enterprise using advanced endpoint and network-wide defenses.
Using Bromium and Palo Alto Networks together will enable organizations to automatically block malicious websites. It will also mitigate the risk of data theft by blocking stealthy hacker command and control channels detected by Bromium LAVA from access by systems within the protected network. Once Bromium detects advanced malware it will then provide detailed information about the attack source to the Palo Alto Networks security platform in real time, via Bromium LAVA. Based on pre-determined policies, automated actions are then performed, such as alerting the administrator, blocking additional access to malicious sites and blocking outbound communications to command and control sites.
“We are thrilled to team with Bromium to provide joint customers with enhanced protection against advanced malware,” said Chad Kinzelberg, senior vice president of business and corporate development at Palo Alto Networks. “This integration illustrates how Palo Alto Networks customers and partners can take full advantage of our security platform to build a central security hub to share real-time threat intelligence, automate remediation and improve operational efficiency.”
Providing a comprehensive and accurate view of malware behavior in real-time, LAVA is a centralized security application that works in conjunction with Bromium vSentry®. LAVA gathers and provides immediate analysis of each hardware-isolated malware attack occurring within an enterprise, providing detailed insight into an attack’s origin, techniques and targets while delivering immediate, actionable security intelligence and enabling enterprise security teams to safely analyze threats.
“By providing an unparalleled and comprehensive view of malware attacks in real-time, Bromium LAVA has proven to be critical to an enterprise’s security architecture,” said Simon Crosby, CTO and co-founder at Bromium. “This integration with Palo Alto Networks and their security platform will allow joint customers to respond immediately, network wide, achieving defense in depth and effectively defeating and mitigating advanced attacks. We look forward to providing the very best in automated malware response.”
Bromium embraces a “continuous improvement” philosophy to expand the scope and value of a customer’s security investment. Recent improvements include enhanced support for Windows platforms, VDI implementations and Google Chrome.
