5 Questions with Simon Crosby about his New Startup Bromium

Last week while at the GigaOM Structure conference in San Francisco, Simon Crosby, the former CTO of Citrix Systems' data center and cloud division, announced the eyebrow-lifting news of his departure from Citrix, along with Ian Pratt, chairman of and co-founder of XenSource. The two have decided to leave Citrix in order to form a new stealth company called Bromium.

Crosby and Pratt are joined by Gaurav Banga, the former CTO and senior vice president of Phoenix Technologies, who led the creation of two new product lines: HyperSpace, a new platform for instant-on and power efficient computing, and FailSafe, a cloud-based anti-theft and device management system for the PC. Banga will serve as the new stealth company's president and CEO, Crosby as CTO, and Pratt will be senior vice president of products.

The stealth company also announced it had raised its Series A round of funding in the amount of $9.2 million from Andreessen Horowitz, Ignition Partners, and Lightspeed Venture Partners. This round of funding from Andreessen Horowitz reunites Crosby and Pratt with former XenSource CEO, Peter Levine, who also becomes a Bromium board member.
