Next-Generation Secure Web Gateway

Next-Generation Secure Web Gateway

Spikes Security, founded in 2012, is a ventured-backed start-up based in Los Gatos, CA. The company’s initial product is AirGap, an innovative browser isolation system that prevents all browser-borne malware from entering the corporate network and infecting endpoint devices. This is accomplished by moving the browser off endpoint devices and onto a specialized appliance deployed outside the firewall. To access the web, employees use the AirGap client viewer to communicate with the external appliance, which processes all web content requests within individual isolated VMs. The appliance fully renders web content within each VM, then transforms the content and delivers it safely to the end user over a proprietary protocol. Performance is optimized to ensure excellent UX – even for video and audio content.
CEO, CTO, and Founder of Spikes, Inc. • 15 years as CIO of startups @PayPal, and @SpaceX.
