CEO: Ben Ayed

Secure Access Technologies enables companies to wrap mobile applications to provide multifactor authentication with no dependency on the device location.

It can log out users from wrapped applications when they are away from the device and provides keyless entry to those apps when they return.

The Menlo Park, Calif.-based company has landed a partnership with mobile device management vendor Good Technology. Its CEO Ben Ayed holds several patents on the technology. It also has the inventor of SSL Taher Elgamal on its Board of Advisors.
