SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/10/14 -- Bluebox Security, the mobile data security company, today announced that GuidePoint Security, LLC, Leading Security Innovation, has not only selected Bluebox to address its internal mobile data security needs, but also as a partner. GuidePoint Security's team of security experts chose Bluebox for its unique ability to deliver enterprise visibility, security, and control of mobile data, while simultaneously enabling mobile employee productivity without compromising privacy. By partnering, the companies are well positioned to execute to their shared vision for the future of mobile security -- secure BYOD that simplifies IT and supports business productivity.
"GuidePoint Security was founded by information security veterans who understand the importance of a data-first security strategy, and we are thrilled to have their endorsement both as a customer, and a partner," said Caleb Sima, CEO, Bluebox Security. "The combination of GuidePoint Security's deep domain expertise with Bluebox's next-generation solution, will allow companies to rethink their mobile security approach to reduce risk in today's rapidly changing mobile landscape."
A recent study found that employees use seven times more applications than IT estimates.(1) Employee-introduced apps in the enterprise have resulted in an increase in mobile data blind spots, and an increase in data loss. Employees are influencing mobile strategy so it stands to reason that the key to successfully securing mobile is to first secure employee buy-in. With Bluebox Instant App Protect, any app is secured on-demand for hassle-free IT maintenance and an unobtrusive employee experience. Ultimately, this means that IT can secure corporate data without impacting employee productivity or privacy -- something both the users and IT will buy into.
GuidePoint Security represents a comprehensive information security technologies portfolio across every aspect of information security. The addition of Bluebox expands their technology offerings and services into the new era of mobile security.
"GuidePoint Security has a strong history of selecting and working with innovative security technologies that redefined their markets and allowed companies to achieve their information security and business goals," said Justin Morehouse, Founder and Principal at GuidePoint Security. "Bluebox has clearly emerged as a leader in mobile security that understands what the market needs in today's BYOD world. We were so impressed by the technology and team that we not only wanted to be a partner, but also a user."
