SpydrSafe Mobile Security Raises Seed Funding from Amplifier Ventures
SpydrSafe Mobile Security, Inc., a McLean, VA-based start up that is developing a mobile security platform that prevents corporate data breaches due to intentional or inadvertent misuse of mobile apps has raised seed funding from Amplifier Ventures.
Founded by CEO Michael Pratt and CTO Kevin Sapp in early November and currently in stealth mode, the company has developed a proprietary solution designed to allow employees to use their own Android devices at work and IT departments to protect the sensitive enterprise information that they access.
Pratt and Sapp were part of the senior management of Trust Digital, a venture-backed provider of mobile device management technology that was acquired by McAfee in June, 2010. The founding team of the company has more than 15 combined years of experience in mobile security and are recognized leaders in their field.
