HP Purchases Security Startup Bromium

The purchase will bring new isolation and threat intelligence capabilities to the HP portfolio.

HP has announced its acquisition of Bromium, an anti-malware startup firm that works by providing isolation and containment for browsers and applications. Already part of HP's Sure Click, Bromium's technology is slated to become part of the broader HP platform in the future.
