Judging Panel Presents Bromium® 'Best of Show' and 'Best Technology Innovation' Awards for vSentry®
CAMBRIDGE, UK, May 8, 2013 – Bromium, Inc., a software solutions provider that makes enterprise endpoints secure by design, today announced it has won two coveted Computer Weekly European User awards – Best of Show and Best Technology Innovation – for its unique vSentry solution.
Judge Andrew Rose, principal analyst, security and risk at Forrester Research, commented on the winning entry, “This is a great innovation that is likely to have a significant impact on endpoint security. Bromium reinvents the endpoint solution in a way that has no impact on the user, yet restricts attacks. Excellent.”
Spencer Izard, IDC’s research manager European software, said, “The concept of microVMs that can behave in a proactive and predictive fashion without affecting the overall performance of IT systems through network performance latency issues shows a high level of innovation that will hopefully translate to achievable business benefits.”
Clive Longbottom, founder of Quocirca agreed, “By sandboxing a device, security becomes so much easier – the system can be thrown away and restarted as and when needed. By starting from a viewpoint that a device is probably compromised, Bromium does not have to look at fighting this," he said. “It accepts it and turns the device purely into a container, where any compromise is separated from the working environment.”
“It’s a huge honour to be recognised so highly by the Computer Weekly European User award judges,” said Franklyn Jones, VP of Marketing at Bromium. “Our technology has been created to stop 100% of threats, unknown and known, and empower 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. With vSentry, we are leading innovation in the endpoint security space, and these awards prove it.”
