Using this approach, enterprises have unparalleled visibility into their mobile devices, allowing them to better secure sensitive company data, evaluate mobile applications and block advanced threats.
"Organizations today are struggling with a growing number of apps, cloud services, and personal devices accessing their corporate data and networks," said Garrett Larsson, co-founder and CEO of Mojave Networks. "Early on, we saw a huge market need for an easy to use, enterprise-grade mobile security solution that could take a different approach to solving this problem. By analyzing data traffic at the network layer, we are able to see risks in a whole new way, and in just a short amount of time, we've had dozens of enterprises around the globe deploy our solution."
Mojave Networks also announced today that it has closed a $5 million round of funding led by Bessemer Venture Partners (BVP) with participation from Sequoia Capital to accelerate its go-to-market strategy. Bessemer's investment will be used towards research and development, sales team expansion and industry partnerships. The company has already brought on team members from other security leaders including Symantec, McAfee, Palo Alto Networks and Lookout.
"As mobile threats continue to grow in commonality and sophistication, enterprises must re-evaluate how they combat mobile threats," said David Monahan, Research Director, Enterprise Management Associates. "Looking beyond traditional mobile device management (MDM) and antivirus solutions, by looking more holistically at the device, the applications and their threats is key to gaining full visibility into devices on an organization's network. It's great to see companies like Mojave Networks launch to market with innovative approaches to solving this ever-evolving problem."
