Bromium vSentry Sets New Standard for Security Effectiveness

Bromium, Inc., a software solutions provider that makes enterprise endpoints secure by design, today announced the first independent security validation of its vSentryTM software for Windows desktops. In test results just published by NSS Labs, Bromium vSentry protected endpoints from every attack, confirming that Bromium vSentry sets a new industry standard for endpoint security.

NSS Labs testing verified that Bromium vSentry managed to defeat and automatically remediate all attacks, including 166 embedded exploits delivered via email to Microsoft Outlook®, 153 drive-by attacks delivered via HTTP and HTTPS, and 15 advanced attacks using the Metasploit penetration testing toolset that incorporated advanced obfuscation and evasion techniques in an attempt to bypass protection.

“This is the first public test in our new Threat Isolation group test, using our new Security Stack Test Harness,” said Ken Baylor, Research VP at NSS Labs. “The Stack Test Harness allows NSS to accurately determine the level of protection offered by the industry’s leading security products as measured against active penetration attempts by actual threat actors. Tests conducted with Bromium vSentry showed that the software was able to defeat 100 percent of the attacks launched against an otherwise unprotected Windows 7 desktop.”

vSentry is built on the Bromium MicrovisorTM – a security-focused hypervisor designed to automatically, instantly and invisibly hardware-isolate each vulnerable Microsoft Windows task in a micro-VM that is prevented from modifying Windows or gain access to enterprise data or network infrastructure. Whenever a task isolated with vSentry attempts to access files, networks, devices, the clipboard, or interact with the user, the hardware interrupts execution and passes control to the Microvisor, which enforces task- specific policies on a strictly “need-to- know” basis.

The New York Stock Exchange is among the growing number of large enterprise and government organizations that attest to the power of vSentry.

“vSentry is an intriguing product because of its unique ability to isolate and analyze the potential impact of very real attacks on your network,” said Sunil Seshadri, SVP & Chief Information Security Officer at NYSE Euronext. “It's almost like performing preventative forensics, which is a very innovative capability, and incredibly valuable in today's carefully guarded corporate networks.”

“The independent findings of NSS Labs, as well as the feedback we receive from customers, all validate the unmatched protection of Bromium’s hardware-enabled isolation technology integrated into the innovative, lightweight design of vSentry,” said Franklyn Jones, Vice President of Marketing at Bromium. “Bromium continues to deliver on its vision of a profoundly more secure enterprise endpoint, while simultaneously enabling IT to empower end-users to access the web and untrustworthy content with a safe, non-disruptive user experience.“

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
Consumer IoT applications provide data about the user that just doesn’t exist in traditional PC or mobile web applications. This rich data, or “context,” enables the highly personalized consumer experiences that characterize many consumer IoT apps. This same data is also providing brands with unprecedented insight into how their connected products are being used, while, at the same time, powering highly targeted engagement and marketing opportunities.
