Bromium Expands Security Ecosystem with Palo Alto Networks Integration
CUPERTINO, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Inc., a pioneer in trustworthy computing, today announced integration
efforts between Bromium Live
Attack Visualization and Analysis (LAVA™) and the Palo Alto (News - Alert) Networks
security platform. The integration will combine both technologies to
provide automated malware response, protecting the enterprise using
advanced endpoint and network-wide defenses.
Using Bromium and Palo Alto Networks together will enable organizations
to automatically block malicious websites. It will also mitigate the
risk of data theft by blocking stealthy hacker command and control
channels detected by Bromium LAVA from access by systems within the
protected network. Once Bromium detects advanced malware it will then
provide detailed information about the attack source to the Palo Alto
Networks security platform in real time, via Bromium LAVA. Based on
pre-determined policies, automated actions are then performed, such as
alerting the administrator, blocking dditional access to malicious
sites and blocking outbound communications to command and control sites.
"We are thrilled to team with Bromium to provide joint customers with
enhanced protection against advanced malware," said Chad Kinzelberg,
senior vice president of business and corporate development at Palo Alto
Networks. "This integration illustrates how Palo Alto Networks customers
and partners can take full advantage of our security platform to build a
central security hub to share real-time threat intelligence, automate
remediation and improve operational efficiency."
Providing a comprehensive and accurate view of malware behavior in
real-time, LAVA is a centralized security application that works in
conjunction with Bromium
vSentry®. LAVA gathers and provides immediate analysis of
each hardware-isolated malware attack occurring within an enterprise,
providing detailed insight into an attack's origin, techniques and
targets while delivering immediate, actionable security intelligence and
enabling enterprise security teams to safely analyze threats.
"By providing an unparalleled and comprehensive view of malware attacks
in real-time, Bromium LAVA has proven to be critical to an enterprise's
security architecture," said Simon Crosby, CTO and co-founder at
Bromium. "This integration with Palo Alto Networks and their security
platform will allow joint customers to respond immediately, network
wide, achieving defense in depth and effectively defeating and
mitigating advanced attacks. We look forward to providing the very best
in automated malware response."
Bromium embraces a "continuous improvement" philosophy to expand the
scope and value of a customer's security investment. Recent improvements
include enhanced support for Windows platforms, VDI implementations and
Google (News - Alert) Chrome.
