Enhanced Application Security
Software component developers that create programs for the web
risk intellectual property theft because they cannot secure their products from
reverse engineering before shipping them. With CODE:NEO, companies can distribute
their products in a more secure fashion.
Software developers program in human readable code called source
code. Different technologies take the human readable and understandable
code and use it as instructions to run the computer in different ways. With
technologies such as Java, ASP and Cold Fusion that source code is left in a state
that can be easily read and understood by a software developers competitor.
As a result, it is difficult for a company to protect its intellectual property (source
code) because it is forced to give it away.
When companies bundle their product with CODE:NEO, the compilation
process helps protect the software product from intellectual property
theft because CODE:NEO executables are pure binary code. This
code is much harder to reverse engineer, and therefore provides
better intellectual property security for Web software developers
and development companies, insuring that clients return for updates
and improvements to their website. By bundling their products
with CODE:NEO, software component developers can release development
libraries without being afraid of giving away trade secrets because
overall site security is enhanced.
