Bromium Finalizes $40M In Series C Funding For Hardware-Based IT Security Solution

Cybersecurity vendor Bromium recently announced the finalization of $40M in Series C funding in a round lef by Meritech Capital Partners with additional participation from existing investors Andreessen Horowitz, Ignition Partners, Highland Capital Partners and Intel Capital. Bromium delivers a hardware-based solution for protecting IT infrastructures against malware and other security threats by way of its proprietary Bromium Microvisor technology, which spins up micro-virtual machines (micro-VMs) every time an application is used. Bromium’s premise is that by limiting the geography of malware to discrete micro-VMs, they can be more easily controlled and ameliorated. Bromium’s vSentry solution takes advantage of Intel CPU functionality related to virtualization to isolate the hardware required for internet access or downloading files. Meanwhile, LAVA provides customers with visualization capabilities to understand and mitigate threats to cybersecurity. Customers manage the Bromium solution by way of the Bromium Management Server (BMS), which controls both vSentry deployment as well as the aggregation and analysis of LAVA events. The Series C capital raise brings the total capital raised by Bromium to $75.7M, according to TechCrunch. Bromium’s current roster of customers includes NYSE, Blackrock and ADP.
