Many organizations want to leverage distributed or offshore development but have security concerns with their code and other intellectual property sitting outside their control. The result is often to use high-latency remote-desktop solutions for development, adhering to an organization’s security controls but crippling developer productivity. An alternative is to use a Hosted IDE delivered to a browser via VPN. The IDE, code and build environment are hosted within the organization's private cloud, easing security concerns, and the developer experience is significantly improved. Tools in this space include Orion and Che from the Eclipse Foundation, Cloud9 and Code Envy.
