Mobilisafe which was co-founded in 2010 by T-Mobile alumni, Giri Sreenivas and Dirk Sigurdson, takes a different approach to mobile device management for the enterprise. Most mobile device management solutions on the market currently, typically focus on locking down devices and monitoring them, with remote-wipe being the fail-safe if a device is lost, stolen, or compromised. Mobilisafe’s approach is more of a proactive approach to identifying threats posed by mobile devices. It provides enterprises a way to identify device vulnerabilities, available software updates and patches, and notify employees on how to address the vulnerability or install the updates.
Originally, Mobilisafe was only considering a sales and marketing partnership Rapid7, but that changed this year when the companies CEOs met and a bid was made for the company by Rapid7.
