In April 2018, Xcalibyte received its A round of funding from Redpoint China. This first round enabled Xcalibyte to establish its presence in the market and develop its core technologies to a highly competitive level. Xcalibyte’s capability is fully recognized by its investors which led to this A+ round of financing for continued development and growth. Mr. Reggie Zhang, Partner of Redpoint China, commented: “Xcalibyte is a new strategic investment in the advanced software technology sector. The increase in usage of cross-software and cross-hardware has led to complexity in technology deployments. This includes cross-language, internal/ external team collaborative development, software coding security, stability, quality, and efficiency issues. Xcalibyte has a world-class software development team. Leveraging on the deep understanding of code compilation, Xcalibyte has designed and developed the next-generation static code analysis tool, Xcalscan, for in-depth compiler-level source code defect detection. Xcalscan empowers software developers to locate code defects quickly and accurately. By assessing potential risks and assisting developers in remediating defects, Xcalscan improves software quality and reduces development costs.”
