‘Solving the mobility service and security dilemmas for IT administrators’
In today’s electronic world where day-to-day tasks have become easier with the mere click of a button, a wide array of information that is shared through networks and connected devices puts each of us amidst a risky state of affairs. With the rising need for ensuring security for one and all, and especially for companies whose main assets are their database and valuable intellectual property, there have been a lot of entrepreneurs coming up with different ideas to provide security solutions to prospective clientele. Founded in 2013, SyncDog is one such entrepreneurial venture and has offices in Reston, VA; Ottawa and Ontario, Canada.
Starting a cyber security company in this dangerous era requires a lot of grit and determination. You need to be frequently updated with the latest trends in cybercrime and come up with solutions to mitigate the threats that can arise from it. Everything comes down to meticulous planning and the forbearance to understand these market trends. CEO Jonas Gyllensvaan is one man who possesses these qualities with great aplomb.
SyncDog SentinelSecure™ – Your secure containerized workspace
SyncDog has become the leading independent software vendor (ISV) for building secure infrastructure frameworks that protect enterprise networks from cyber breach from mobile computing sources. The company has grown from its humble beginnings to become an industry leading player and now dominates the security industry with its flagship product mobile security product SentinelSecure™.
SyncDog’s flagship enterprise mobility security product is SentinelSecure™. This containerized mobile workspace allows organizations to control and manage how employees exchange relevant, time-critical information back forth between their devices and the organizations’ secure networks. Our “containerized” mobility security partition protects organizational data by employing FIPS 140-2 certified (NIST cert. #2687), AES 256-bit encryption with a simple software-based deployment and no impact to productivity or application functionality.
The standard configuration of SentinelSecure™ comes with a full suite of productivity applications including SharePoint, Enterprise and Local Chat, Geo-location Services, DropBox, a personal Information Management (PIM) suite, Office 365, Secure Mobile App Management & Development, File Sync, and many more. Applications are categorized in these four key workflows:
SentinelSecure™ can be deployed as a standalone container or as a complement to existing EMM/MDM investments. We have a solid partner ecosystem and have certified integration with MobileIron EMM, Snow Software EMM, Notify Technology EMM, and Apperian Mobile Application Management Platform, and we have field integrations with other EMMs and MDMs. SentinelSecure™ has version builds available with industry-specific configurations for Healthcare and U.S. Government Department of Defense workflow requirements.
Finally, as IoT continues to mature, SyncDog offers its SentinelSecure™ Infrastructure Framework for IoT, agent-based software that monitors IoT modules and tracks access to your network. This tracking data is sent to SyncDog’s EMM solution or any other EMM.
SyncDog is continually improving the end-user experience in the SentinelSecure™ mobile container. It is working hard to increase application offerings, and its work with a couple of mobile app development partners is giving each organization a secure environment to develop productivity applications that speak to their individual requirements. SyncDog is also actively growing its partner ecosystem, teaming up with EMM, MDM, and MAM providers to give its customers the ability to deploy SentinelSecure™ as a complement to existing mobile security investments or as a standalone EMM solution.
Additionally, SyncDog is adding infrastructure to SyncDog SentinelSecure™ in the coming months to provide more context-capable deployment of end-user policy management per organization. Geo-location and geo-fencing via GPS data and time-sensitive policy enforcement are a couple of examples of new things in store for our customers.
Geographically speaking, the company is continuing to expand with a new development office in New Brunswick, Canada, and have also partnered with a large mobile solutions provider in Europe, Snow Software. This ecosystem will enhance customer service and will enable SyncDog to better understand marketplace requirements, while increasing the reach of our vision. The company hopes that in the coming years, its influence in mobile security will reach government agencies, law enforcement agencies, banking, finance, healthcare, and others.
The road map ahead
The company’s vertical focus is Banking/Finance, Healthcare, Federal/ State government and Aerospace. SyncDog is based in Northern Virginia, so North America is its primary geography, with several distributors in place. It is also working with partners in the EU to bring to market localized white label offerings in several countries, and have just signed a distribution agreement with an organization in South America.
SyncDog is focused on constantly improving the app functionality within the secure container. The more secure it makes mobile computing with an extensive library of mobile applications, the faster its customers will realize ROI. SyncDog will continue to increase the number of business tools and the secure interaction of device-to-datacenter within the product.
“Our pure-software solutions solve the mobility service & security dilemma and allow IT administrators to be in front of costly support calls.”
