Recently, Amplifier Ventures announced the seed financing of SpydrSafe Mobile Security, Inc. SpydrSafe had been operating in stealth mode since its formation in early November. The company has developed a new approach to DLP (data loss prevention) and app control on Android devices. The company’s proprietary technology will allow employees to use their own Android devices at work while protecting the sensitive enterprise information that they access. The company’s innovative approach to BYOD (“bring your own device”), enables IT departments to deploy enterprise apps and proprietary data with enterprise-grade app and data oriented policies and security, all while preserving the native user experience.
“The problem and opportunity for enterprise BYOD is tremendous. Employees want to use their personal devices to play videos, download games and access enterprise applications and data. Enabling this ‘peaceful’ co-existence to occur is a huge problem for MIS directors and employers generally,” said Jonathan Aberman, Managing Director of Amplifier. “SpydrSafe’s approach to this problem is unique, and elegant, and satisfies the needs of both enterprise IT and employees.”
SypdrSafe’s CEO Michael Pratt said, “We think that the BYOD opportunity is the continuation of a growing trend of blurring between enterprise and consumer technology. We expect that solutions which allow for little friction between the requirements of enterprises and employees will be adopted rapidly and accelerate this trend.”
