Who are we?
Division-M Pty Ltd is a software engineering company based in Sydney, Australia. Established in the early '90s, Division-M has a long history working with file and network systems, Windows device drivers and other low-level system components. We've tackled many robust technology challenges, and continue to do so.
The software engineering game is all about being flexible, while at the same time being decisive about how you move with the "next biggest thing". As an example, all our backend service code is written in either C, C++ or Delphi... why? Because their performance is unmatched, even though these are decades-old technologies (that said, we do like the way Rust is heading). On the client-side, it is a different matter, and this is where the flexibility comes into play. Here we go with the technology that delivers the best users experience, along with the highest security model. Another great example is Anvil. It sports a web-based UI/UX that provides a beautiful, always "up to date" user experience... while allowing the backend to authenticate against the cloud (i.e. off the machine), which dramatically improves security.
Division-M Pty Ltd, formally Microsmith Technology Pty Ltd, was merged as a division of Jacal Consulting Pty Ltd in 2003 (hence the name), and become a stand-alone entity in 2010. Division-M has been responsible for many successful products over the years, including Game Jackal (acquire by SlySoft Inc. in 2007), Drive Bender, Cloud Xtender, and our latest addition to the product family, Anvil File Security. Proudly, our products have been used by many hundreds of thousands of customers, from all corners of the globe.

What people say about us?
Was recommended Drive Bender by a friend, excellent product, excellent support, well done Division-M.

I had a RAID setup that become corrupt, so I move to DB to be able to retain the Windows NTFS format for all my drives, yet still be able to pool my drives.
Had a 28 drive pool running under the competitor’s product, and had performance problems. Was told that Drive Bender had no such limitations, they were 100% correct!
My pool was switching to fault tolerant mode, with help from Anthony it turned out that one of my drives was going south. First class service and support.
To put it simply, Drive Bender is a great product.
Cloud Xtender has allowed me to pull together all my Google and Dropbox accounts into one easy to use Windows drive, excellent stuff.
For years I have managed our Amazon S3 storage using the web interface, now when I need to push files live, I simply drop them into the Cloud Xtender folder and I'm done.
Wow, just created a Cloud Xtender drive that links to 5 Google storage accounts, now I've got 75GB of online storage free, and can expand as needed, excellent idea!
A pretty simple and straight forward way to map a cloud storage service to your machine.
Purchased a 128GB Microsoft Surface, added a Cloud Xtender drive pointing to Azure storage and I now have an unlimited local drive on a device with limited physical storage.
This is an excellent app, being able to create a drive letter that connects to multiple cloud drives is a great idea!
Division-M has been engineering software solutions for many years. One of our key strengths is Delphi, and we have been building and deploying applications build on top of Delphi for over 30 years. With our first commercial products being built using Turbo Pascal, the predecessor to the modern Delphi language we have today.
There would be few software engineering companies with years of experience, and success building and deploying products using Delphi that Division-M has enjoyed. Almost without exception, the projects we have undertaken, whether internal or in conjunction with other stakeholders, has had some Delphi component in the mix.
- All versions of Delphi
- RemObjects integration
- Cloud services support
- Using web SPA technologies to interface with Delphi backend components (as seen with our Anvil File Security product)
- Encryption services
- Interfacing with third-party libraries
We offer a range of services around Delphi development.
- Application development using Delphi
- Supporting or advancing existing Delphi applications
- Migration of old Delphi applications to the latest Delphi versions
- Migration of legacy Delphi projects to Microsoft's Visual Studio
