According to a recent study, 9 out of 10 Americans use their smartphones for work each day.(i) By 2016, the number of smartphones is expected to surpass the number of people on the planet.(ii) Despite the rapid proliferation of user-owned mobile devices into today's businesses, only a small percentage of companies have a BYOD policy in place and most lack a complete solution for mobile data security.
"Today's MDM and MAM solutions are at odds with the way mobile employees actually work, and fall short in the area of securing data and application access," said
Built on its patented 'data-wrapping' technology, the Bluebox SaaS mobile data security solution delivers:
•Complete visibility of corporate data as it moves throughout the mobile workflow. With Bluebox, CISOs gain strategic insights into the 'who, what, where, when and how' of corporate data. CISOs can inform and dynamically tune security policies based on actual mobile data use, and respond in real-time to security events with surgical precision or comprehensive action to delete, suspend, or lock documents, users, applications, or devices. Now security teams have the tools they need to ensure their mobile security is current and relevant to actual usage and threats.
•Comprehensive security across the device, application, and network. Bluebox identifies and dynamically encrypts corporate data on the device, and in applications, as well as secures corporate data traffic end-to-end, from devices to cloud-based and internal applications. Bluebox also automatically detects and protects against platform-level vulnerabilities, application tampering, and jailbreaks for device and app integrity.
•Freedom and privacy for security that employees embrace. Bluebox gives employees the freedom to use any application, maximizing productivity without compromising security. Bluebox's Instant App Protect secures on-demand any internal or public mobile app, no SDKs or coding required. A transparent privacy dashboard combined with clear separation of corporate and personal data gives employees full visibility into what IT is, and isn't, tracking.
"The end user doesn't want to have to care about security and privacy," wrote
"Data goes everywhere in today's mobile world," said
"We are constantly anticipating threats we may face and preparing methods to tackle them in ways that enable our employees, thereby reducing employee frustration," said
Since its founding in 2012, Bluebox has gathered a world-class team with deep expertise in information security -- the same team behind the discovery of the Android "master key" exploit -- as well as a number of Beta users from the Global 2000.
