Bromium, HP Team Up for Enterprise Security
Bromium’s application-isolation technology powers HP Sure Click Advanced, which protects endpoints from malware introduced through email attachments, infected links, web browsers or downloadable files. Bromium’s technology will protect all subscribers’ Windows 10 PCs.
HP DaaS customers will stay secure even if a user clicks on a malicious link or document.
Sherban Naum, Bromium’s senior vice president for corporate strategy and technology, tells us HP and Bromium both realize the “immense value of our channel community, allowing our partners to not only grow their business opportunities by delivering managed proactive security to enterprise customers, but also the ability to drive greater partner offerings that embrace and extend our solutions with complimentary additional capabilities.”
“We partner with other cybersecurity solution providers to share the complete zero-day and unknown attack artifacts with our cyberpartners to enhance their offerings,” he said. “By isolating an attack no one has seen before, and providing the full binaries and threat intelligence analysis, we give our customers and partners a competitive advantage of time to value. We are able to capture not only the entire attack, but provide the information to our customers and partners, often before it’s been reported to the broader community and certainly well before there is a patch or updated threat file.”
Global partner networks will be able to benefit from the Proactive Security service in two ways, Naum said. The capabilities will enhance their own security offerings to their customer base with a differentiated approach. Also, the completeness of the threat intelligence gained in near real time gives partners the ability to add their own integrated solutions or key personnel to support the deployments and sustainments of the cyber-resilience architecture, he said.
“Bromium’s solution, itself, is a competitive advantage,” he said. “By combining the expertise of HP in delivering a trusted computer base and the addition of Bromium application isolation and real-time threat intelligence, enterprise customers will have the ability to stop targeted, sophisticated zero-day attacks while having immediate visibility and analysis of their estate’s security posture. The offering expands on the success we’ve had to date and delivers enterprise capabilities unmatched in the market.”
The Proactive Security service is expected to be available in more than 50 countries next month.
“As the workforce continues to evolve with more remote and highly mobile employees, today’s approach to modern IT must include an increased focus on security,” said Bill Avey, HP’s global head and general manager of personal systems services. “HP creates the world’s most secure and manageable PCs, and the new HP DaaS Proactive Service with the Sure Click Advanced technology goes even further by helping customers protect against, understand and respond to threats on all Windows 10 PCs.”
