Spikes Selects Application Development Tools from Embarcadero Technologies to Build “The Only Secure Browser”Delphi XE4 Enables Spikes to Deliver a Unified Native User Experience Across Multiple Devices and Platforms from a Single Codebase
SAN FRANCISCO — April 30, 2013 — Embarcadero Technologies, a leading provider of software solutions for application and database development, today announced that web security provider Spikes, has selected its technology for developing the world's only secure browser. Using Embarcadero Delphi® XE4, Spikes is building a virtual browser that can be run on any device, all from a single source codebase.
Browser exploits are the number one cause of malware infections and to combat this problem, Spikes has built an alternative that runs on remote systems, so that when malware strikes, the endpoint remains untouched. The Spikes Browser™ can operate on any computer or mobile device, protecting against threats – even the unknown and undetected.
"Our customers are inherently going to be running in multi-device environments, which means that our browser needs to operate seamlessly on iOS, Windows and Mac," said Branden Spikes, founder, chief executive officer and chief technology officer of Spikes. "While we could have used a Java tool, it would have created a complex updating process and hindered the end user experience, not to mention the fact that Java itself is insecure. We selected Embarcadero's Delphi XE4 because it delivers the performance of a native solution all from one codebase."
Included in RAD Studio XE4, Embarcadero Delphi XE4 offers a way to build native apps for PCs, tablets, and smartphones, all with one codebase.
