Spikes Security Wins MVP Award From Computer Technology Review

Leading IT Industry News Publisher Recognizes Spikes Security Browser Isolation Technology, Which Prevents Browser-Borne Malware From Entering Corporate Networks

LOS GATOS, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 7, 2015) - Spikes Security, the isolation security company, today announced that it has been selected by Computer Technology Review as winner of an MVP Award, recognizing leaders within the IT security space.

The Spikes Security Browser Isolation System was reviewed and selected for the prestigious publication's 2015 Most Valuable Products list based on criteria such as solution effectiveness, innovation and usability. Spikes Security's browser isolation technology addresses all pernicious web threats, stopping zero-day attacks, "shape-shifting" polymorphic attacks, transparent drive-by downloads and other complex threats.

"Today's malware is not just pervasive but also sophisticated. An employee's single, nonchalant click from a popular browser all too frequently turns out to be a 'bad click' that exposes the enterprise to malicious content that is often undetectable using traditional security tools," said Computer Technology Review Editor-in-Chief, Kim Kay. "Spikes Security remedies this problem, stopping attacks before they can enter the network and disrupt the enterprise."

Computer Technology Review is a US-based news portal that has been covering the best of IT, specializing in storage, cloud computing, virtualization, data protection, security and leading edge innovation since 1980.

Spikes Security CEO, CTO and Founder Branden Spikes noted: "Cyber criminals have become very effective in developing complex malware attacks that are completely undetectable and often go undiscovered for months after the attack has cost a business significant time and money. To effectively prevent this new breed of undetectable malware, our AirGap solution assumes all web content is bad, isolates it outside the network, and streams an encrypted, encoded, and secure virtual image of the isolated web content to endpoint devices."

"We're of course honored that Computer Technology Review understands both the importance of better safeguarding the enterprise, and the advanced performance and security our Browser Isolation System delivers," he concluded.

Spikes Security will be demonstrating its browser security solution at the RSA Conference, Apr. 20-24 in San Francisco, Booth #S2144.
