Bromium and Microsoft to improve enterprise security for Windows 10

Bromium has partnered with Microsoft to enable enterprises to benefit from its micro-virtualisation technology and prevent security breaches when using the new Windows 10 operating system.

Bromium’s micro-visualisation technology will complement the new and enhanced security capabilities in Windows 10, including the new CPU virtualisation feature, by isolating and eliminating cyber attacks and preventing them from compromising the endpoint. The technology also provides real-time insight into threats.

“Customers are telling us that dramatically improved security is a critical requirement and one of the main reasons they will rapidly adopt Windows 10,” said Jim Alkove, partner director of Program Management, Enterprise and Security in the Windows and Devices Group at Microsoft. “We’re excited to see our security partner Bromium complementing Windows 10’s in-box security capabilities with micro-virtualisation solutions to help our customers eliminate additional vectors of attack.”

Micro-virtualisation hardware isolates user tasks, preventing them from accessing the internet and opening untrusted attachments, files and removable storage. This prevents malware from compromising the endpoint, stealing valuable data and penetrating the enterprise network. The technology also extends and integrates with Microsoft security solutions, including Systems Center Endpoint Protection.

“Our strategic partnership with Microsoft is centred on a common technology heritage and a shared goal of hardening the endpoint to prevent enterprise breaches,” said Ian Pratt, CEO and co-founder of Bromium. “This partnership validates micro-virtualisation as a foundation for future desktop security and assures Bromium’s security products are compatible and complementary to Microsoft’s efforts to enhance security in Windows. Microsoft and Bromium together make Windows endpoints secure, defeating attacks by design and delivering real-time threat insights.”
