SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 3, 2014) - Bluebox Security, the mobile data security leader, today announced that it has been chosen by AlwaysOn as one of the OnDemand Top 100 winners. Inclusion in the OnDemand 100 signifies leadership amongst its peers and game-changing approaches and technologies that are likely to disrupt existing markets and entrenched players. Bluebox Security was selected by the AlwaysOn editorial team and industry experts spanning the globe based on a set of five criteria: innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value, and media buzz.
"This year, the top cloud infrastructure, SaaS, and on-demand software players are making serious inroads into the enterprise and business community. Cloud storage wars and excellent software offerings are making the cloud an even more attractive place to do business. Both business and consumer users are migrating to the cloud in droves, bringing us into a new digital age filled with opportunity," says Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. "This year's OnDemand 100 winners list is jam packed with companies that are using the cloud to create and host imaginative, versatile apps. Mobile, business, consumer -- the on-demand universe is propelling the entire Global Silicon Valley into an interdependent, connected, and mobile future."
The OnDemand 100 winners were selected from among hundreds of other technology companies nominated by investors, bankers, journalists, and industry insiders. The AlwaysOn editorial team conducted a rigorous three-month selection process to finalize the 2014 list.
Bluebox Security provides visibility and protection of corporate data -- at rest or in transit -- across any mobile application on iOS or Android. With Bluebox Security enterprises can trust mobile while giving employees the freedom and privacy the need to be productive. The solution is built with 'data wrapping' technology and delivers complete visibility of corporate data as it moves throughout the mobile workflow to provide comprehensive security across mobile devices, applications and networks.
"The explosion of mobile in the enterprise has disrupted existing security approaches and created a flashpoint between enterprise IT managing risk and lines of business looking to improve productivity," said Caleb Sima, CEO and Co-Founder of Bluebox Security. "We've taken a fundamentally different approach -- one that accommodates mobile employee needs for application freedom and privacy, while giving organizations the visibility and control they need to secure corporate data. It's mobile data security that supports the speed of business while managing risk. This award demonstrates that we are on the right track."
Bluebox Security and the OnDemand Top 100 companies will be honored at AlwaysOn's OnDemand event on June 4th, 2014, at Draper University in San Mateo, CA.
