Hysolate has developed a hybrid endpoint architecture that allows enterprises to seamlessly run multiple fully-isolated operating systems on a single workstation. By providing reliable security that assumes the operating system can be compromised, this makes life easier for company employees.
Hysolate is an Israel-based cybersecurity company. Hysolate is the fourth company launched by Team8, a cyber “think tank” that facilitates the development of cybersecurity companies and is backed by Microsoft and Qualcomm. Team8’s leadership team is comprised of cyber veterans from unit 8200 (Israel’s NSA). With roots in the elite technology units of Israeli defense and in world-class enterprise software companies, the Hysolate team knows all about cyber-security offense/defense and the daily challenges of enterprise IT. The team has been building enterprise software for decades and are passionate about disrupting the traditional thinking about endpoints, cyber-security and IT.
Hysolate’s patented virtual air gap technology splits an endpoint into two isolated operating systems: one is an unlocked operating system with full freedom and the other a locked down operating system that can only be used for accessing enterprise resources. This essentially protects sensitive assets regardless of the type of attack vector that is used by malware attacks. If a nefarious actor tricks the user into installing malware or infect the latest Windows zero-day vulnerability, attackers are trapped in one operating system without being able to access the other. Hysolate is deployed below the operating systems, creating a platform for security, manageability and productivity – similar to what VMware did to the server world decades ago.
