Cupertino, Calif.-based Bromium introduced its first product, vSentry, in September 2012, and it is quickly gaining attention of security experts. The company uses strong hardware-based container technology called micro-virtualization. The Xen-based hypervisor isolates each vulnerable or untrusted user task. The goal is to neutralize attacks and detect advanced persistent threats.
The company's leadership team consists of virtualization experts. CTO and co-founder Simon Crosby founded and was CTO of XenSource prior to the acquisition of XenSource by Citrix. The company also has experts formerly of VeriSign and McAfee on its team.
