The 10 Coolest Security Startups Of 2013


Mojave Networks

CEO: Garrett Larsson

Mojave Networks focuses on mobile security at the network level, providing a cloud-based platform that monitors device and mobile application usage to detect threats. The San Mateo, Calif.-based company collects the networks the device connects to, the cloud services and mobile applications being used, and how it connects to the corporate network. The usage data is shared with IT teams who can create enforceable policies. The company's service also analyzes Android and iOS applications used by popular mobile services, such as Box, Evernote, Google Drive and Dropbox, and creates a risk profile, enabling administrators to add a whitelist, based on the names of apps that use them. Garrett Larsson, co-founder and CEO of Mojave, told CRN that the service can be set up in minutes. It provides Web filtering and data loss prevention capabilities, such as the ability for the enterprise to detect and block a device sending out credit card or Social Security numbers in clear text. Enterprise clients pay a monthly fee based on the number of devices enrolled.
