Lookout: Mobile Security Through Data Approaches

Lookout is a security technology company dedicated to making the post-PC world safer for everyone. They develop software that secures personal devices, protects the BYOD workforce and defends mobile infrastructure and networks.

To address the unique security challenges of the Post-PC era, Lookout takes a different approach, tackling security as a data problem. They created the world’s largest mobile data set and combined it with the power of  45 million users to build a powerful cloud-based protection platform.

Lookout was founded by John Hering, James Burgess and Kevin Mahaffey, three mobile security researchers who met at the University of Southern California. The trio’s early security research led them to conclude that threats to mobile users would grow rapidly.

From their website:

We build security technology that protects people, businesses, governments, and critical infrastructure from the growing threats in the post-PC era. Mobile from the start, we take a different approach to security, using the world’s largest mobile dataset, cloud technology and the power of our 45 million users to proactively protect the devices and networks that power our connected world.

We’re passionate about designing products that people love and, more importantly, that they trust. We’re proud to have our efforts recognized with awards like 2013 World Economic Forum Tech Pioneer and Fast Company’s Most Innovative Mobile Companies.
