What is most valuable?

The feature that stands out the most is that when someone clicks on a link in an email, it opens up a web browser window, Internet Explorer. Let's say that link is… more»

How has it helped my organization?

With the Bromium, everything comes up in a nice, isolated window, which negates the need to wait for that AV scan to conclude, so the radiologists can be very productive… more»

What needs improvement?

Initially, when we came in contact with Bromium a few years ago, it had a nice threat analyst, or a LAVA Pop, which is what they used to call it. Once it detected malware… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The pricing is very fair compared to the competition. The licensing is straightforward.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We did have previous solutions. My boss came across Bromium about four-and-a-half years ago at a conference. Bromium gave a presentation and he was wowed by that… more»

What other advice do I have?

Bromium is a very good choice. It will make your life a lot easier and you should definitely implement it, especially if you're in a hospital environment and you have a… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

At that time we were evaluating many options, but nothing worked quite as well as Bromium, especially for isolation through email, the links, where they download something… more»

What is most valuable?

One of the big enhancements they've added recently is the following: When you go to a website that has an issue, Bromium will generate an alert, what they call a LAVA… more»

How has it helped my organization?

It comes down to the endpoint protection. It has greatly reduced our risk of infection on our endpoints, either when browsing or when opening untrusted or unknown… more»

What needs improvement?

They have always struggled with usability. The endpoint protection that it offers you is tremendous, but there's definitely an impact with use of resources on the… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

We did a three-year deal three years ago. We're due for a renewal in a couple months. We'll see, then, where we're at. Initially, the cost was higher than some other… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We didn't have any similar product.

What other advice do I have?

Make sure that you meet their specs as far as hardware requirements go. Having a standard hardware configuration, as we do, is huge, where you don't have to deal with… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated another product at the same time, Invincea, which is very similar. But we felt Bromium was better. The level of the OS where Bromium protects the exposure to… more»

Director of IT Security, Risk and Compliance. at a pharma/biotech company with 1,001-5,000 employees
Dec 03 2018

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the process isolation because it simply stops malware from infecting the machines. The secure browser for isolating high-risk web activities… more»

How has it helped my organization?

We've seen a significant decrease in our need to respond to malware infections. It has reduced desktop re-imaging and really reduced the amount of lost productivity across… more»

What needs improvement?

In terms of using forensic data reported from the solution, reporting is actually one of the shortcomings of the product. We do mine the data that's in there from a… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Pricing is reasonable.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We've used a variety of anti-virus solutions and we switched because anti-virus simply doesn't work.

What other advice do I have?

If you want something that is actually effective, versus easy, this is a solution that is effective. It won't necessarily be the easiest tool to implement but, in the end… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Invincea was the competing product, outside of just the anti-virus space. We evaluated both products and we looked at how they worked technically, and Bromium was… more»

Oct 14 2018

What is most valuable?

The isolation feature is the most important because it prevents attacks.

How has it helped my organization?

Our security posture has improved. I don't have any specific metrics but it has definitely contained and prevented some malicious attacks from happening. Normally when we… more»

What needs improvement?

They need to improve the compatibility with other applications and its stability. It works well on attacks, but it doesn't work well with all software on the clients… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The product's pricing is a good value. We only run it on our internet-facing workstations, we don't run it on everything in our environment. We are very selective. Some… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

There's really nothing else that does what Bromium does. They're a thought leader in the area of isolation. We used antivirus in the past, but we didn't go away from it… more»

What other advice do I have?

Start with proper hardware: 8GB of RAM and Core processors. Don't try to run it on 32-bit software, 32-bit operating systems, and don't try to run it with 4GB of RAM or… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We didn't do any kind of bake-off because Bromium is really very unique in what it does and it's the only game in town.

What is most valuable?

Security, price, and usability are the three top features.

How has it helped my organization?

It has reduced the number of virus and malware incidents and calls we have received compared to prior to deploying this product. Our overall security posture has improved… more»

What needs improvement?

Room for improvement would be keeping up with the rate of change, specifically on Windows platforms. There are a lot of updates that come out for Microsoft Windows… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I think the pricing is a good value. All of these security products are always going to be very expensive, but I don't think Bromium is unreasonable. I think Bromium is… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

Bromium was the first of its kind to be implemented in our company.

What other advice do I have?

It's absolutely worth taking a look at this technology, especially if your environment is susceptible to ransomware or malware. This product is very effective in… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

On paper, we evaluated a product from Menlo Security, but we chose to go with Bromium because it was agent-based.

What is most valuable?

Office and PDF Micro VM protection.

How has it helped my organization?

It has prevented thousands of potential threats by encapsulating them within its own vSentry container, thus providing overall protection and integrity of the operating… more»

What needs improvement?

It still needs to mature a bit. There are many tweaks and adjustments required in the Enterprise Controller. We had to work with the vendor to include them in its service… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

We had a special arrangement, due to the scale of our deployment being the first of its kind with Bromium.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

No previous solution.

What other advice do I have?

Understand your current setup and the limitations of your network and endpoints. Perform quality evaluations and metric analysis, then establish your use cases to review… more»
