HP Inc. has announced the acquisition of Bromium, an endpoint security startup. Bromium protects enterprises by using virtualization-based security to isolate browser-based attacks, malicious downloads, email attachments and other applications in unique, hardware-enforced micro-virtual machines.
Bromium technology complements and enhances HP’s existing security platform with hardware-enforced application isolation and containment to protect against advanced attacks while providing real-time threat intelligence.
“Security is a key competitive differentiator for HP, providing the most secure PCs and printers on the market,” said Andy Rhodes, GM and global head of Commercial Systems at HP. “The acquisition of Bromium extends our investments, leadership and focus in this space and securing endpoint devices that are on the front lines of defense against cybersecurity attacks.”
HP currently licenses the Bromium technology and leverages it for its Sure Click solution. Bromium will become part of HP’s broader platform to secure end-point devices.
