Industry and Federal Government Leaders Collaborate to Defeat Cybersecurity Threats
CUPERTINO, Calif., September 26, 2012 – Bromium, a pioneer in trustworthy computing, today announced that it has been selected as a SINET 16 Innovator. Bromium will present its vSentry product, based on the Bromium Microvisor™, during the 2012 SINET Showcase to be held October 25th at the National Press Club in Washington D.C., supported by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security Science & Technology Directorate. The Security Innovation Network (SINET) initiatives are designed to advance innovation and enable collaboration between the public and private sectors to defeat global cybersecurity threats.
Eighty emerging technology companies applied and were carefully vetted in a two-stage process by the SINET Showcase Steering Committee for the opportunity to present innovative and potentially disruptive cybersecurity solutions to an audience of representatives from defense, homeland security, intelligence and civilian federal agencies as well commercial, investment and research communities. Bromium will be one of sixteen companies presenting on stage.
“Every year the quality of companies applying to present as a SINET 16 Innovator continues to impress the Showcase steering committee. Since 2010 we have received hundreds of applications in our efforts to advance innovation, lead change and build trusted global collaboration models between the public and private sectors to defeat cybersecurity threats. We are confident that by raising the awareness of Bromium and other finalists’ capabilities, there will be an enhanced opportunity to impact the most pressing technology needs of the Federal Government and private industry – and, ultimately, the protection of our nation’s Critical Infrastructure and Command and Control systems. In this light, I am excited to announce the class of 2012 SINET 16 Innovators,” said Robert Rodriguez, Chairman and Managing Principal of SINET.
Bromium introduced its vSentry product earlier this month. vSentry allows IT departments to focus resources on strategic objectives, safely embracing key trends in mobility and consumerization of IT. Users benefit from a native desktop experience that enables and protects them, allowing access to untrusted documents and the web without risk. In addition, vSentry helps IT to quickly migrate new undetectable attacks. It revolutionizes information protection, ensures compliance – even when users make mistakes, eliminates remediation, and enables users – saving money and time, and keeping users productive.
“Traditional reactive security technologies are important and effective to an extent, but as an industry, we need to start working on proactively protecting access to the web, attachments and documents, which are generally targeted by undetectable malware,” said Gaurav Banga, co-founder and CEO of Bromium. “We are honored to be chosen to present at this year’s SINET Showcase to explain our vSentry technology and how it fills a void in solutions currently provided in the industry.”
