SyncDog’s flagship solution, SentinelSecure™ extends application functionality to devices while securing corporate and government networks from mobile-endpoint threat, one of the most vulnerable threat vectors today. “The phone is always connected to the web on unsecured networks, which makes mobile endpoints highly vulnerable,” says Gyllensvaan.
SentinelSecure’s uniqueness lies in its ability to offer total application functionality within the workspace, regardless of how far an employee is from the network, through containerized workspace methodology. The containerized workspace provides a secure data platform that encrypts and transports data between an enterprise’s backend and secure, “sandboxed” applications on the mobile devices. This military-grade defense helps mitigate the risks, and enterprises can put their corporate apps and IP in the container and worry less about the mobile threat. SentinelSecure allows unimpeded collaboration and communication between employees’ applications—while being protected through a NIST-certified (FIPS 140-2 cert. #2687) connection with AES 256-bit encryption. It supports a wide range of enterprise collaboration apps and can be used with a multitude of enterprise mobility management (EMM) tools as a complementary layer of security to a company’s existing information security investments.
Being a small and agile company gives SyncDog the ability to build customized solutions for customers depending on their requirements. Many of the requirements are similar by vertical, but each deployment will solve a particular problem, which makes the process different. “Our solution is very flexible and easy to install and configure,” adds Gyllensvaan.
We deliver a secure application workspace where employees can be most productive while working remotely on their mobile devices or tablets
Having served numerous clients over the years, the firm has deep expertise when it comes to endpoint security. In one instance, SyncDog assisted a Municipal Police Department (MPD) to improve the workflow of evidence collection from officer’s phones to the department data center. For the MPD, the process of uploading data to the secure data center was cumbersome and risky. SyncDog Sentinel Infrastructure Framework and SentinelSecure Container™ automated the workflow and compliance for handling of crime-scene data. SyncDog’s solutions also simplified the crime-scene processing workflow, allowing detectives to focus more on police work and worry less about auditing and compliance while investigating.
Gyllensvaan believes that the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will cause the next huge shift in global data security management. “Most data security standards haven’t been enforced by the government, but with GDPR, we will see strict government enforcement and the steepest fines to date for non-compliance with a data security regulation,” remarks Gyllensvaan.
This is where SyncDog aims to leave their mark—by delivering an efficient and collaborative infrastructure framework that protects enterprise networks from a cyber breach. The company aims to leverage their 20 years of experience in mobility and endeavor their path of delivering containerized application security for enterprise mobile computing. The future path also includes organic growth in the U.S. through direct channels and leveraging partners in Europe to expand overseas.
