Hysolate Wins 2019 IT World Awards for Best Virtualization Solution and Cybersecurity Startup

Hysolate, pioneer of endpoint isolation solutions, today announced it won the 2019 IT World Gold award for Best Virtualization Solution. The company was also honored as Security Startup of the Year/Bronze. These awards recognize the unique ability of Hysolate’s hypervisor-based cybersecurity platform to solve an urgent enterprise problem: protecting corporate digital assets while giving end-users the freedom to access the resources they need to be productive.

“Many enterprises lock down user devices to protect corporate information, even though this makes it harder for users to do their jobs. Some use virtualization software like Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) and application sandboxing to try to isolate sensitive information from attacks. But because these are only partial solutions that leave many attack vectors exposed, the organization’s crown jewels are still compromised,” said Jessica Stanford, VP Marketing, Hysolate. “Hysolate takes a much more effective approach to solving the endpoint security problem. We make it easy to provide users with the access they need without putting sensitive corporate information at risk. It’s great to see IT World judges validating Hysolate’s unique value.”

Hysolate is revolutionizing endpoint architecture by transforming end-user devices into the secure, productive environments they were meant to be. The only virtualization-based endpoint security solution that delivers full isolation, Hysolate seamlessly splits devices into multiple, completely separate zones.

Hysolate builds endpoints atop a bare metal hypervisor platform that sits below the operating system. Everything an end-user does happens in separate local virtualized operating systems running side-by-side on the same device—for example, one that’s locked-down and limited to privileged resources and another for corporate day-to-day work, including email and Internet browsing. Users can access, install, and work with the websites, apps, external devices like USBs, and cloud services they need, without security constraints and without worrying about endangering or compromising their company’s sensitive data.
