SILICON VALLEY, Calif., May 22, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Spikes Inc., a cyber security company, today announced C2 Company has awarded the Spikes Browser the Seal of Cybersecurity Excellence, which is presented to innovative products that have the capacity to create positive impacts in the world. The seal signifies an area of focus for the professional services practices of cyber security firms, and establishes best-practices for solving problems in the cyber security field.
"Spikes is taking a vastly more secure approach, while still providing an excellent user experience," said Harry Haramis, President of C2 Company. "The Spikes Browser's hardware separation provides more defense in depth, rather than a single layer of software protection from browser-based malware. Now we can have browser applications run outside the network perimeter, where their stealthy botnets can't access internal resources."
Malware invasions through the browser are the largest cyber security threat facing enterprise today. Traditional approaches to browser security have proven ineffective and perpetuate a false sense of security. The Spikes Browser introduces true hardware separation between the user's computer and the browser, eliminating web malware infections of the user's computer. This unique approach provides a substantially more secure way to use the web than any prior solution.
"Receiving this award from C2 Company, as well as positive feedback from our customers, is real world validation of our remote browsing model," said Branden Spikes, founder and CEO of Spikes. "Conventional approaches to browser security rely on software defenses and are fundamentally flawed. We've made it essentially impossible for web based malware to breach companies through the Spikes Browser."
With the right recipe of bulletproof security, state-of-the-art performance, and ease of use, Spikes has made the hacker's easiest target – the web browser – one of the most impenetrable.
