Windows Driver Development

Hiring Nektra's services ensures that your driver will be robust and able to handle heavy demand. Unlike other experts in this field, we offer kernel mode services at a price accessible not only to large corporations but also to small and medium-sized companies.

We work alongside our customers to find the correct kernel mode architecture, design and implementation. Windows Internals is our passion and core expertise. Our Nektra Blog reflects our dedication to research.

Our team is specialized in:

  • Hardware drivers
  • File system drivers
  • General filter drivers
  • WFP and WFP Layer 2 driver development

Nektra’s core strength is to think outside the box, come up with creative solutions to apparently impossible problems, and keep things simple. You can read some case studies here.

How do we work?

We work closely with our customers to help them define their needs.

We divide each project in phases, which are implemented by Nektra or the customer.

1. Requirements

Some customers have clearly defined requirements. Others just have a list of features which they want to implement in their software. Many customers want to port software to Windows, in which case the requirements depend on that particular software's features.

2. Design

Windows offers several technologies for driver development. We have experience with them all, and can guide our customers or their technical staff to the best choice for a particular solution.  

3. Implementation

We write the code and test the software, and the customer validates it. We generally provide alpha, beta, and final versions. Alpha and beta versions go to our Quality Assurance department to ensure that the software meets the initial requiements and follows quality guidelines. Customers can report any problems during the warranty period, which begins upon delivery of the final version.

4. Certification

We can help customers navigate the increasingly complicated process of Microsoft Windows Certification when needed.
