Bluebox Security Selected as Finalist for Tech Trailblazer Awards

Shortlisted in Mobile and Security Categories Proving Innovational Excellence

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Dec 16, 2014) - Bluebox Security®, the mobile data security company, today announced the company has been shortlisted in both the mobile and security Trailblazer categories of the 2014 Tech Trailblazer Awards. The Tech Trailblazer Awards recognize and reward technological and commercial innovation and entrepreneurship excellence.

"Seventy-five percent of the mobile applications we use every day fail basic security tests, putting both corporate and personal data at risk," said Caleb Sima, CEO and co-founder of Bluebox Security. "Add that to the increasing pace of mobile application innovation, and it's easy to see why mobile security has become the new wild west. At Bluebox Security, we are committed to delivering trusted apps and protecting data in an untrusted mobile landscape. We are honored to be shortlisted amongst other innovative companies."

The Bluebox Solution safeguards corporate data within mobile applications by securing any commercial or custom-developed business-to-business or business-to-employee mobile application. Bluebox Security's cloud-based solution provides visibility, control and security of corporate data, allowing enterprises to trust mobile, while providing freedom of choice, ease-of-use and privacy employees demand.

Tech Trailblazer finalists were selected by a group of judges from an extensive pool of industry experts around the world. Public vote and respective category judges select winners.
