That’s A Wrap! New Security Software Seals Off Apps

If you haven’t read the CNET article on new security software from a company called Bromium yet; definitely make it a point check it out.

A thumbnail sketch of their extremely complex “micro virtualization” technology is that it isolates any app that tries to open on your computer in a virtual machine; blocking its access to the Windows operating system.

That means for example, that if you accidentally click on an infected email link, or navigate to a poisoned URL through your browser; the malicious code gets sealed off and shut down before it can do any damage.

So far, it only works for Windows, but a Mac version is reportedly in the works.
