Websites infected with malware are a major culprit behind cyber attacks, and unsecured Web browsers are a common attack vector for hackers. A growing Silicon Valley startup is trying to solve that problem—by taking the Web browser out of the equation. Spikes Security says its browser-isolation technology protects computers from malware and Internet-borne attacks by creating a virtual machine that isolates the user’s own browser from the Internet. Infographic: Just browsing? Malware shops for data Company founder Branden Spikes came up with the idea in 2008 from the need to protect rocket scientists. He since has launched a startup that recently rolled out its first commercial version—and has sparked interest from several sectors, including credit unions. Free IDT911 white paper: Breach, Privacy, And  Cyber Coverages: Fact And Fiction The technology, called AirGap, works by using secure Linux appliance hardware that renders Web pages outside of the user’s network. The browser’s session is streamed back to the user through a high-performance, remote desktop connection of sorts—think of it like streaming a very high-quality video. “We come at it from a preconceived assumption that all browsers are malware by their very nature,” says Spikes, who serves as company CEO and CTO. A recent Ponemon Institute study sponsored by Spikes Security found that 81 percent of the 645 surveyed IT practitioners consider unsecured Web browsers as a primary attack vector. The same number found that Web-borne malware could be completely undetectable despite various security tools. “I feel like most of the other attack vectors have been solved or can be shut off,” Spikes says. “A Web browser cannot be turned off.” From rocket science to Silicon Valley Spikes was a consultant who installed firewalls when he met a guy named Elon Musk, who was working on an Internet startup. Musk went on to co-found PayPal, and later founded the aerospace developer and manufacturer SpaceX. At PayPal, Spikes oversaw cybersecurity, along with Web systems, databases and “all the sort of blinking lights that sit in the data center.” When Musk moved on to focus on SpaceX, he brought Spikes along. Spikes, who spent 10 years as CIO at SpaceX, was exposed to all sorts of network attacks there. But despite state-of-the-art defenses, one type consistently got through. “There’s one thing that was always able to defeat my defense mechanisms, and that was end users’ Web browsers,” he says. When Musk announced in the mid-2000s that he wanted to launch astronauts into space, Spikes says he started to lose sleep. “(I) had to defend the livelihoods of human beings with my network. …If I was unable to stop browser malware, I would really likely fail,” he says. Spikes’ job at SpaceX, essentially, was to not allow the bad guys to hack the network. That high bar, he says, meant he had to solve the challenge of protecting intellectual property that resided entirely on laptops and desktops. Spikes invented AirGap in 2008 while at SpaceX, but maintained the intellectual property rights. Four years later, he spun off his own startup. Today, Spikes Security employs 30 people in Los Gatos, Calif. The company received an $11 million Series A investment last fall that has allowed it to expand its engineering team and accelerate the development of new features. After a couple of years perfecting the technology and extensive beta testing, the product was rolled out officially earlier this year. About two dozen customer deployments are in place, with another two dozen in various testing stages. “When you’re building an innovative product like this, it requires a lot of ongoing education and collaboration with customers to ensure the product is meeting and exceeding expectations,” says Chief Marketing Officer Franklyn Jones. Challenging the competition The idea of browser isolation technology is not new. Several other vendors are offering isolation technology, including some big players. Typically, they’re trying to solve this through a sandbox or micro virtual machine. The problem, Jones says, is that if malware escapes the sandbox or VM, the network becomes affected. “We keep all the bad stuff outside the network,” he says. The company is having some early success with credit unions. “Small banks and credit unions are prime targets for cyber criminals because, very often, these firms do not have the IT staff or budget to build state-of-the-art security infrastructure,” Jones says. The company plans to launch a mobile version this year, and another major product announcement is due in a couple of months. “One of our long-term goals is to ensure that the Web is safe for everyone, everywhere, all the time,” Jones says. “We are on track to meet that objective before the end of the year.

AUSTIN, Texas—March 31, 2015—Mozido, mobile financial and retail marketing solutions provider, today announced it has participated in the Series B financing of IdentityMind Global, a risk management platform for e-commerce and regulatory compliance. As a part of this investment, Mozido and IdentityMind have formed a strategic partnership to expand safe, secure mobile commerce around the world. “Mozido serves customers around the world that require specialized products and services to help them manage risk and secure compliance,” said Mike Love, president of Mozido. “Our investment in IdentityMind increases our capabilities in this critical area.” Mozido is creating a global footprint of consumer transactions that will benefit from the IdentityMind investment with increased capabilities to combat international payment fraud from the world’s banked and unbanked consumers. Mozido merchants and issuers will have a global, fraud prevention and evaluation system that ensures user identification, transaction authenticity, and mobile device security using a robust analytics platform consisting of dozens of data sources recognizing and validating identities around the world. Mozido has integrated IdentityMind’s technology into its MoTEAF platform—a cloud-based mobile ecosystem for payments, engagement, and rewards—and will be accumulating data from all transactions running on the MoTEAF platform. “Fraud prevention in e-Commerce and online transactions is most effective when the identity of the consumer or entity is known,” said Garrett Gafke, president and CEO of IdentityMind. “Our platform recognizes individuals based on a combination of attributes and helps validate how these attributes correlate against each other both online and offline. This is particularly important in mobile commerce where online merchants sacrifice collecting information for reducing friction in the mobile payment/registration process, and mobile adoption is larger within underbanked and unbanked demographics.” Because unbanked consumers don’t traditionally have the credit and transaction history that banked consumers typically have, Mozido’s partnership with IdentityMind will create a unique risk managed ecosystem for authenticating unbanked user identities. The partnership will give merchants the ability to ensure within every transaction:
  • Recognition: Merchants will initially be able to recognize the user and device
  • Identification: The user is compared across dozens of data sources to verify identity
  • Authentication: Once the user is identified, the transaction is authenticated across Mozido’s MoTEAF platform
  • Security: The transactions are completed in a highly secure environment, whether the user is requesting the payment token through a smartphone or a basic SMS-enabled mobile phone

SpaceX and PayPal IT veteran Branden Spikes thought that when it came to founding his own technology firm in March 2012, developing and mastering the security technology itself would be the biggest challenge. But the CEO and CTO of Spikes Security, which now sells a browser isolation product designed to protect PCs from malware and Internet-borne attacks, was proven wrong. The biggest challenge was securing funding from the venture-capital community. “Initially, I thought building the product was going to be the big challenge I’d face, but it turned out to be fundraising,” he says. “It’s a ‘forcing function’ for building a really excellent, mature business,” he adds, referring to a task that forces you to take action to deliver the required result. Since his Silicon Valley startup obtained its required funding, however, Spikes says he’s been able to resume focusing more closely on the company, including guiding its growth. “I felt so great when we finally closed the fundraising, that I threw an incredible party and really breathed a sigh of relief, because not only did we achieve something nearly impossible – it seemed – but now I’m able to focus on the business and back on the product again, and that continues to be really exciting and a really fun day job.” Behind the Scenes That day job now involves developing security software called “AirGap.” Here’s how it works: Instead of users running a browser on their client, they run the lightweight AirGap client viewer. Behind the scenes, an AirGap Linux appliance – running either as a Spikes Security cloud service, or else as an on-premises rollout inside the enterprise – creates an isolated, virtual machine, with requisite operating system hardening, firewall and so on for each browser session. AirGap then relays any audio, video, text or graphics that are displayed in the browser – via “a much more benign format” than HTTP, Spikes says – to an AirGap client that runs on a user’s PC. That network and hardware isolation approach to running browsers is designed to block drive-by attacks and keep malware off people’s systems. Strategy: Grow, But Not Too Fast The AirGap software was released in beta last year, and this year the company has gone into full production. But Spikes says he’s cautious about his business growing too big, too fast. “We’re controlling the flow, if you will, to allow the company to grow at the proper pace,” he says. Recruitment is one rationale. Another is because “initially the cost of a customer is quite high, and so you really want to make sure that you’re getting the value out of that,” Spikes says, referring to required marketing investments, publishing related case studies, channeling lessons learned to the engineering team, and providing high levels of customer service to an expanding number of users. “Customer support is no easy task,” he says. “Our culture here is to provide a white-glove level of support for all customers, and to make that scale is also kind of a challenge.” In this exclusive Executive Session interview, Spikes discusses: The biggest challenges associated with founding and leading a security software startup; Strategies for making Spikes Security grow at the right pace, and his underlying thinking; Future plans to “hyperscale” the Spikes technology and sell not just to enterprises, but also the consumer world. Prior to founding and serving as CEO and CTO of Spikes Security, Spikes was the fourth employee to be hired at Space Exploration Technologies, or SpaceX, founded by entrepreneur Elon Musk, which is attempting to revolutionize space travel. Before that, Spikes was one of the first employees at PayPal, where he served as the director of IT, and he also worked at such firms as digital content studio Everdream and Web software company Zip2

Mountain View, Calif. — December 9, 2014— ConteXtream (, a leading provider of carrier-grade network virtualization solutions, today announced the launch of ContexNet 4.0, the first commercially-available OpenDaylight-based, carrier-grade software-defined networking (SDN) fabric for network functions virtualization (NFV). ContexNet 4.0 helps carriers avoid commoditization of their products and develop new revenue streams by creating a more flexible and programmable network through a SDN/NFV model. According to Ovum’s recent World Cellular Data Metrics report (, LTE subscriptions are expected to rise to more than 2 billion by 2019, increasing from 250 million today. Along with this growth in subscribers, carriers are experiencing significant growth in voice and data usage placing added pressure on the network. However, while network usage continues to grow, carriers are also seeing a significant drop in data pricing with an estimated decrease of 77 percent during the first nine months of 2014, according to Chetan Sharma’s Q3 2014 report ( As a result, carriers are finding it harder to reinvest in the network – putting them at risk of becoming commoditized as voice and data only providers, while over-the-top providers like Facebook, Twitter and others are seeing significant increased revenue from mobile. To combat this trend, carriers are looking to SDN and NFV to virtualize their networks so they can decrease costs and be more nimble to capitalize on current market trends. ContexNet 4.0 helps carriers overcome deployment challenges and enables them to pursue new revenue opportunities by leveraging an industry-standard approach that easily integrates into existing infrastructure and provides the flexibility needed to quickly introduce and support new services. This paves the way for service providers to offer more personalized, a la carte-style plans to consumers, such as video or music streaming, without straining the network as a whole. Taking advantage of OpenDaylight, OpenStack, OpenFlow and other industry standards, ContexNet 4.0 provides unsurpassed scale, supporting millions of subscribers with customized service profiles, as well as the resiliency, high-availability and extendibility requirements for carriers’ unique network needs. This complies with the Internet Engineering Tasks Force (IETF) horizontal standard interfaces for network virtualization allowing operators to create programmable networks that are not only flexible and self-healing, but also have a high degree of consistency. The solution also allows for geographically dispersed sites to be unified and operate as a single network. Supporting Quotes:
