Over the past seven years, Torok has positioned PreEmptive Solutions as a leader in commercial obfuscation, optimization and size-reduction software. Several Fortune 1000 companies use its products and software developments.
With hackers attempting to find holes in security codes and tap into computer systems, innovative software is on the top of almost every CEO's wish list.
"Providing access to source code and creating compact and efficient applications are two of the most important issues in developing applications," says Torok, whose business received a boost last year when Microsoft chose it to provide a "lite" version of its Dotfuscator, to be packaged in Visual Studio.NET. The program helps developers with code protection right out of the box.
Torok's passion is to constantly pursue innovative ideas that lead to programs for foiling would-be hackers. Some of the company's latest work includes Control Flow Obfuscation, String Encryption, Incremental Obfuscation and Enhanced Overload Induction. Dotfuscator Professional Edition rearranges code instructions while keeping the original run time logic intact.
The benefits of these and other PreEmptive products include improved intellectual property protection, decreased application size and better program performance, all of which impact a company's bottom line.
"We are committed to ongoing product innovation and development, as well as superior customer satisfaction," says Torok. "We feel that we are the best at what we do, and while there are competitors, we are at the top of the industry. That's why Microsoft has chosen us."
The opportunity that Microsoft brings to PreEmptive is enormous and the impact significant, says Torok, who adds the company's in-the-box approach with Microsoft has helped bolster sales of its full version software and continues to push it to innovate.
"It's been great for us," he says. "We get to have our software in front of every Microsoft programmer."
Today, the biggest challenge facing PreEmptive is trying to stay ahead of hackers and their technology, requiring it to stay as current as possible. It's a tall order, but one Torok describes as part of the fun. How to reach: PreEmptive Solutions, (216) 732-5895 or www.preemptive.com
