Bluebox Security Shortlisted as Finalist in Consumer Trust for Meffys 2014

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 2, 2014) - Bluebox Security®, the mobile data security company, today announced that it has been named a finalist in the Consumer Trust category of the Meffys 2014, which recognizes organizations that are paving the way for creating a more trusted environment and experience on mobile for consumers.

Hosted by the Mobile Entertainment Forum (MEF), a global community for mobile content and commerce, the Meffys are the international awards for measuring success and rewarding innovation across the mobile ecosystem.

"Rapid adoption of mobile for both personal and professional use, coupled with the unprecedented pace of mobile application innovation has created a wild west," said Caleb Sima. "Threats are following users into mobile, creating increased risk and exposure of both personal and corporate data. Bluebox's mission is focused on increasing mobile data security for all users -- employees, partners, customers and consumers -- delivering trusted apps and protecting data in an increasingly untrusted mobile landscape."

Bluebox Security addresses mobile security needs for data-level security, control and visibility. Bluebox's cloud-based solution safeguards corporate data at rest or in transit across the device, application and network. It provides complete visibility, security and control, while providing freedom of choice, ease of use and privacy that today's mobile employees demand.

Meffys 2014 finalists were selected out of a group of 250 applicants from 30 countries across 13 award categories by an independent panel of 40 journalists, academics, analysts and VCs from around the globe.
