Blue Cedar Builds Market Momentum Wins Cybersecurity Award
January 30, 2017: We are thrilled that Blue Cedar has been selected as 1 of the 10 cybersecurity companies on Momentum Partners’ Q4 2016 Watch List. Each quarter, Momentum shines a spotlight on 10 cybersecurity companies, from the 1,500+ that they track, and profile them in their Quarterly Market Report. At Blue Cedar, we passionately believe that in a mobile first generation, security of the app and its data is really what matters to end users, developers and ultimately, to businesses. And the adoption trends that we’ve recently experienced are super-validating! Since our next-generation client architecture became available for Apple iOS 10 last September, and for Google Android Nougat last October, some examples of organizations adopting Blue Cedar include: A National Rail System, for whom two Blue Cedar secured mobile web apps will enable a 4,000 person mobile workforce, consisting of employees and contractors, with secure access to train operation information 24×7, via their corporate-owned and personal devices. A Laboratory Instrument and Software company, that rolled out new, ‘Blue Cedar’-ized versions of hitherto existing field booking, mobile CRM & secure browsing mobile apps to some of their 3,000+ person field workforce. They have simultaneously increased their security posture regarding access to sensitive data, and delighted their end users, by moving the security control point from their devices to their apps. A Global Wireless Communications Giant, whose 85,000 employees generate an average of >100,000 Blue Cedar secure app microtunnels per week, connecting a slew of 26 mobile apps to high-value and risk-sensitive corporate data. Some of these apps’ workflows include project materials management, service vehicle management, sales quoting, crisis/incident ticket management, and internal social collaboration. A Manufacturer of Electrical and Fiber-Optic Interconnection systems has rolled out mobile CRM and pricing optimization mobile apps, secured by Blue Cedar, to 2,500 sales people. They use a curated combination of Blue Cedar security and connectivity policies to scale their security function’s risk hurdles for mobile access to sensitive data, while ensuring that their mobile-savvy end users enjoy a frictionless experience, during initial enrollment and routine day to day usage. It’s certainly humbling to receive an honor that cybersecurity luminaries such as Cylance, Palantir, and others have previously received. We are focused on building solutions to satisfy marketplace demand for a new approach to mobile security – secure the data, rather than the device. This is an exciting time for us and we’d love to share what we have built, and what we are building, with you. We will be hosting meetings at the RSA conference next month at the Intercontinental Hotel, San Francisco from February 14th – 16th.
