SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 29, 2015) - Bluebox Security®, the mobile app security and management company, today announced it has been recognized by leading-industry experts for its rapid growth and leadership in mobile security. On the heels of being named a winner of the 2015 Red Herring Top 100 North America Award, Bluebox is also shortlisted for the Cyber Security Awards "Best Security Company of the Year."

Bluebox was named as a finalist for the Cyber Security Awards "Best Security Company of the Year" based on its achievements in the industry, including its innovative research on critical mobile security vulnerabilities and education on the potential of data leakage on mobile devices.

"Enterprises need offensive as well as defensive solutions to keep pace with the evolving mobile landscape and to ensure that the mobile apps they create and use, and the data accessed by them, is protected," said Pam Kostka, CEO of Bluebox. "This recognition further validates our commitment and ongoing efforts to create trusted apps in untrusted environments, while maintaining usability and productivity, so that enterprises and consumers can safely conduct their business at the speed of mobility."

Bluebox can convert thousands of third-party commercial apps, as well as custom apps, to self-defending apps in seconds. With dynamic app management, its cloud-based solution secures, distributes and manages mobile applications for employees, partners and contractors, allowing organizations to quickly respond to mobile business needs.
