SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., January 31, 2017 – Blue Cedar, the leader in enterprise mobile app data security, today announced that it was ranked by Momentum Partners, an advisor and dealmaker in cybersecurity, among the top 10 private cybersecurity companies to watch in Q4 2016.

“Our watch list is comprised of companies that demonstrate tremendous momentum and innovation,” said Eric McAlpine, Momentum’s managing partner. “Organizations such as Blue Cedar reflect these qualities, and we will continue to monitor their progress and growth in app-centric, enterprise mobile security.”
Blue Cedar received $10 million in Series A funding last July to advance its vision of the app as the new endpoint. The company’s flagship solution is the fastest, easiest and most secure platform for organizations to secure mobile app data for their end users, without the need for mobile device agents. This provides a key advantage for organizations that don’t want to, or cannot, place proprietary and intrusive agents on their end users’ devices.
“We’re honored to be named in Momentum Partners’ Watch List,” said John Aisien, co-founder and CEO of Blue Cedar. “Momentum Partners’ recognition of Blue Cedar is validation of our approach to enterprise mobile security. We are helping customers expand secure access to their highest-value data beyond the scope of devices under their management.”
Momentum Partners completed its selection of the 40 companies to the firm’s annual Watch List from more than 1,500 cybersecurity companies that the firm tracks globally. Input was carefully considered from Momentum’s vast network of corporate dealmakers, investors and cybersecurity professionals in order to identify the companies displaying tremendous momentum.
