CUPERTINO, Calif., — March 25, 2015 — Bromium®, Inc., the pioneer and leader in transforming endpoint security using micro-virtualization, today announced it has been named a finalist in the SC Awards 2015 Europe for outstanding threat solution products and services in information security.

The winners will be announced at the SC Awards Europe ceremony to be held June 2, 2015, in London.
“Nearly a third of UK businesses admitted to a data breach in the last year. And high profile cases in Europe and internationally, from Talk Talk to Target, and health authorities to Sony, cyber-attackers showed new levels of sophistication and determination in their attacks in 2014,” said Tony Morbin, Editor-in-Chief, SC Magazine UK. “With mounting headlines, it’s more important than ever to recognize the tireless efforts of the men and women across the globe who work to combat these threats and provide cyber-security to organizations large and small.”
The SC Awards are the information security industry’s most prominent recognition. Winners in the Threat Solution categories are decided by an expert panel of judges, hand-picked by SC Magazine UK’s editorial team for their breadth of knowledge and experience in the information security industry. The awards honor both the cyber-security professionals working in the trenches, and the products and services that help protect today’s corporate world from a myriad of ever-changing threats.
“More than 70 percent of breaches begin at the endpoint and nearly 80 percent of information security professionals believe end users are their greatest security headache, yet the majority of the security industry is clinging to outdated detection-based solutions,” said Ian Pratt, co-founder and EVP, products, Bromium. “Defeating advanced attacks requires advanced protection, so Bromium is proud to be recognized for its contribution to the advance threat protection market.”
vSentry software transforms endpoint security with a revolutionary new architecture that focuses on protection through hardware-enforced isolation. vSentry protects desktops and laptops without requiring signatures or updates.
