Supported Platforms

What platforms do you support, and what edition is right for me?

SecureBlackbox supports a number of operating platforms. As you probably noticed, some platforms are supported by more than one edition. For example, Android is supported by a dedicated Android edition, C++ edition, and Delphi edition. Which one to choose?

In most cases, the choice of the platform is substantiated by the development environment that you use or prefer to use. In the above example with Android, if you use Java for your Android development, the Android edition would be the right one to choose. If you use Firemonkey with Delphi, the Delphi edition would be a more appropriate choice.

For your convenience, we are presenting the answer from two viewpoints: from the viewpoint of someone with a specific target platform, needing to make a decision about the product edition to use, and from the viewpoint of someone interested in knowing a set of platforms supported by a particular SecureBlackbox edition.

My target platform is...


Most of development environments and SDKs are available for Windows, so virtually any SecureBlackbox edition can be used to develop for this popular platform. The only exceptions are iOS and Android edition, which target specific mobile platforms.


For Linux you can also develop with a variety of editions:

  • with Java edition, running your applications on Linux JVM
  • with Delphi edition using Embarcadero Linux compiler, FreePascal/Lazarus, or CodeTyphon
  • with C++ edition using g++
