Bluebox Security Named a Finalist in 2015 Red Herring Top 100 North America Award

Recognition Showcases Bluebox's Leadership in Mobile App Security and Management

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 2, 2015) - Bluebox Security®, the mobile app security and management company, today announced that it has been selected as a finalist for the 2015 Red Herring Top 100 North America Award, a prestigious list honoring the year's most promising private technology companies from the North American business region.

Since 1995, Red Herring has annually selected fast-growing, disruptive startups and emerging companies across industries. Evaluated individually from a large pool of candidates based across industries in North America, Bluebox was recognized as an award finalist based on the company's growth, financing, leadership expertise and innovation in mobile security.

Bluebox, which was also recognized recently as one of the "10 cybersecurity companies to watch," allows enterprises to transform any mobile app into a trusted app that keeps data secure even when mobile devices are compromised. With Bluebox, enterprises gain control over mobile app security with the ability to convert thousands of third-party commercial apps, as well as custom apps, to self-defending apps in seconds. Bluebox also provides dynamic app management to distribute and update secured apps to employees, partners and contractors for the ultimate responsiveness to business productivity needs.

"Mobile security is one of the fastest growing markets, thanks to the popularity of mobile apps and their fundamental lack of security," said Pam Kostka, CEO of Bluebox. "At Bluebox, our mission is to create trusted mobile apps in untrusted environments, allowing both businesses and consumers to confidently use mobile without worrying about data loss. It's an honor to be recognized by Red Herring as a finalist amongst such an impressive list of companies as we continue to grow and disrupt mobile security."

Kostka will present on Bluebox's growth and innovation in mobile security during the 2015 Red Herring conference in San Diego on June 3, 2015. Winners of the Red Herring Top 100 North America Award will be announced during an awards ceremony at the conference.
