Brave support by default?

If their primary executables are still named chrome.exe then they should still benefit from all the same shielding as Google Chrome.  I use SRWare Iron (another Chromium based Chrome alternative) and its main executable is called chrome.exe so it is shielded, at least for any of the Exploit Protection rules which apply to processes by that name (they don't specify paths since they can be changed in updates or customized by the user during installation).

They are naught. At least Brave's executable is named brave.exe.

OK, then it isn't shielded unless they have implemented shielding for that specific process by name, and I don't believe they have.  The same shields/protections they use for Chrome/Chromium should work for Brave though, so they should be able to implement the same rules to guard Brave as they have for Chrome if they are willing.
