In a vote of confidence, investors are pumping $40 million in new funding into security startup Bromium. The company, which former Citrix XenSource executives founded, is all about leveraging virtualization technology to enable more secure operating system environments.
Since its founding in 2011, Bromium has raised a total of $75 million. In 2012, when the company was still in stealth mode, co-founder Simon Crosby explained that Bromium’s goal was to build a Byzantine fault tolerant system. The basic idea behind Byzantine fault tolerance is a system that is able to survive multiple and arbitrary forms of attack or failure across any of its component parts.
