HP Inc. has acquired Bromium, an end point security start-up.
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.
HP did not disclose the cost of the acquisition.
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. Combined with HP solutions including Sure Sense, Sure View and Sure Start, it provides protection against sophisticated malware and enhances the company's firmware and BIOS security layers.
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.
