Cupertino, Calif.-based Bromium, which introduced its first product, vSentry in September 2012, continues to gain interest from businesses interested in taking a hardware-based approach to securing endpoints. The company calls its container technology, built on a Xen-based hypervisor, micro-virtualization. The approach isolates each Windows process to prevent malware from breaking out into the full system. Bromium recently raised $40M in Series C funding round. CTO and co-founder Simon Crosby founded and was CTO of XenSource prior to the acquisition of XenSource by Citrix. The firm is also partnering with other technology vendors with its platform. Bromium recently announced integration with ForeScout CounterACT to provide malware behavior data to incident responders.
