Bromium Selected as 2013 SINET 16 Innovator
CUPERTINO, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Bromium, Inc., a pioneer in trustworthy computing, today announced that
it has been selected as a SINET
16 Innovator for the second year in a row. The Security Innovation
Network (SINET) initiatives are designed to advance innovation and
enable collaboration between the public and private sectors to defeat
global cyber-security threats.
"We are honored to be selected to present Bromium LAVA at the 2013 SINET
Showcase," said Gaurav Banga, co-founder and CEO of Bromium. "LAVA
leverages our innovation in micro-virtualization to offer unparalleled
accuracy in threat intelligence, in real time, addressing a vital need
for Government agencies and Federal Systems Integrators seeking to both
protect their infrastructure and understand the origins, methods and
targets of advanced malware."
In 2012, Bromium was selected as a SINET 16 innovator for its
groundbreaking innovation in Bromium vSentry®, which protects
enterprise endpoints without relying on complex detection techniques.
vSentry protects devices even if they have dependencies on legacy
software, such as Java, and eliminates remediation costs by
automatically discarding malware.
This year, Bromium has been honored by SINET for its innovation in Live
Attack Visualization and Analysis (LAVA™), which uses
micro-VM introspection to deliver accurate, detailed, real-time threat
intelligence for malware that attacks a vSentry protected endpoint.
Bromium announced general availability ofLAVA in June 2013.
"Bromium micro-virtualization is the most significant advancement in
information and infrastructure security in decades. vSentry protects by
hardware-isolating each website, attachment and untrusted document in a
micro-VM, defeating advanced malware and preventing access to enterprise
data, networks and sites," said Bob Bigman, former CISO of the CIA.
"LAVA complements this with micro-VM introspection, recording every step
of malware execution in real-time, automating malware forensics and
generating vital threat intelligence for security teams."
LAVA records all system changes attempted by malware isolated in a
micro-VM, captures malware payloads, and tracks the malware as it
executes its attack, reducing false-positive alerts and offering
security teams real-time forensic threat intelligence of unrivalled
accuracy. LAVA delivers threat intelligence in an open standard XML
format that can be shared with other organizations, and generates
signatures that can be input into enterprise firewalls, IDS and IPS
systems to rapidly achieve defense in depth.
Bromium will present LAVA at the 2013
SINET Showcase to be held on December 4-5, 2013, at the National
Press Club in Washington D.C. The SINET Showcase, a public private
partnership initiative, was created to identify and share innovative and
potentially disruptive cyber-security technologies among the audience of
buyers and influencers from the investment, research, commercial,
civilian, defense and intelligence communities. The SINET program,
supported by the Department of Homeland Security Science & Technology
Directorate, received one hundred and fifteen application submissions
from early stage and emerging technology companies, with the guideline
that their revenues be under $15 million. These entries were carefully
vetted in a two-stage process by the SINET
Showcase Steering Committee comprised of 66 leaders from the
government, industry, investment and academic communities.
Bromium is re-inventing enterprise security with its powerful new
technology, micro-virtualization, which was designed to protect
businesses from advanced malware, while simultaneously empowering users
and delivering unmatched threat intelligence to IT. Unlike traditional
security methods, which rely on complex and ineffective detection
techniques, Bromium protects against malware from the Web, email or USB
devices, by automatically isolating each user-task at the endpoint in a
hardware-isolated micro-VM, preventing theft or damage to any enterprise
resource. Bromium's technological innovations have earned the company
numerous industry awards including being named as a CNBC Disruptor and a
Gartner (News - Alert) Cool Vendor for 2013. Bromium counts a rapidly growing set of
Fortune 500 companies and government agencies as customers, including
NYSE and BlackRock.
