Alpha seeking 15 virtual security resellers for Bromium

Alpha Generation is on the hunt for up to 15 UK security resellers after signing a distribution deal with US-headquartered vendor Bromium. Instead of simply blocking threats such as malware, ransomware, advanced persistent threats (APTs) and spear-phishing, Bromium’s platform siphons apps into trusted and untrusted segments.

When an untrusted app is launched, it runs in a micro-virtual machine (micro-VM) container to keep it isolated from the rest of the user’s machine. Any malicious apps are isolated and therefore unable to affect anything outside of its container. When a malicious app is closed its container is destroyed at the same time, preventing any damage and stopping the malware or threat from infiltrating the network.

Chris Clinton, worldwide VP of channel sales and operations at Bromium, said: “We chose Alpha Generation as our UK distributor because we feel the company has the expertise to push our ground-breaking solution for the enterprise. It has the knowledgeable sales people as well as the training, enablement and marketing support required to equip businesses for the future.”

Chris Walsh, sales director at Alpha Generation, said: “A detect and protect approach doesn’t work as a lone solution for all threats anymore. This is why enterprises should consider complementing traditional endpoint protection solutions with a virtualised security platform like Bromium to ensure they’re protected from all sides. Bromium provides an impenetrable platform for people to just do their job without worrying they’ll suffer from a potentially damaging attack.” 

Walsh says the distributor is now inviting between ten and 15 partners over the next 12 months to join the Bromium Partner Network, and only “trusted advisors” with a “solid customer base” will be considered. It wants “dedicated” VARs who can “effectively communicate” virtualisation-based security to their customers. Bromium has its headquarters in Cupertino, California and an R&D centre in Cambridge, UK. The company is backed by top-tier investors, including Andreessen Horowitz, Ignition Capital, Highland Capital Partners, Intel Capital, Meritech Capital and Lightspeed Venture Partners.
