SyncDog: Experts in Enterprise Mobile Security
SyncDog is the leading independent software vendor (ISV) company for building secure infrastructure frameworks that protect enterprise networks from cyber breach from mobile computing sources. SyncDog’s flagship enterprise mobility security product is SentinelSecureTM. This containerized mobile workspace allow organizations to control and manage how employees exchange relevant, time-critical information back forth between their devices and the organization’s secure networks. Their “containerized” mobility security partition protects organizational data by employing FIPS 140-2 certified (cert. #2687), AES 256-bit encryption with a simple software-based deployment and no impact to productivity or application functionality within the container. The SentinelSecureTM container comes with a full suite of segmented productivity applications, including SharePoint, Enterprise Chat, Geo-location Services, DropBox, a Personal Information Management (PIM) Suite, Office Suite, Office 365, Secure Mobile App Management & Development, File Sync, and much more. Their Industry-specific version builds are also available for Healthcare and also support the workflow requirements of the U.S. Government Department of Defense.
“My most memorable moment as a leader was the moment I decided to take the risk and become an entrepreneur in the first place. I left the corporate world at Allen Systems Group and started my own business, and since then I’ve learned that keeping my ear to the ground and responding quickly to evolving needs has been the foundation for SyncDog’s success,” said Gyllensvaan.
Maintaining Firm Hold on Market
SyncDog is uniquely well placed in the market to offer the most flexible solutions that deliver the most comprehensive security. It is often the case that large international software vendors build less-than-stable, high-bandwidth solutions with high total costs of ownership. The support and service that follows often leaves customers usatisfied. As an ISV, SyncDog bypasses this volatility and support insufficiencies trending in the EMM/MDM market by taking a personal, hands-on approach to customer requirements and using that data to build the most relevant mobile security solutions. Their mindset has been and always will be to never become complacent or comfortable, and constantly keep a finger on the pulse of changing security concerns, customer requirements, and compliance considerations in order to develop the most relevant and secure solutions. The company also prioritizes the agility of their team and flexibility of their products to adapt to changing conditions. For instance, in addition to already being iOS 10 ready, SyncDog currently offers a secure framework for IoT connectivity – a growing concern in the enterprise mobile security community.
Not Only Secure Solutions but Productive Too
SyncDog is continually improving the end-user experience for the most productivity and ease of use within the SentinelSecureTM container. They are working hard to increase application offerings, and 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. They are also actively growing their partner ecosystem, teaming up with EMM, MDM, and MAM providers to give their customers the ability to deploy SentinelSecureTM as a complement to existing mobile security investments or as a standalone EMM solution.
Aside from SyncDog’s experience in mobile security, their customers get benefit greatly from availability of the firsthand feedback from customers and prospects at conferences and trade shows. While SyncDog can never predict with 100% accuracy what the next big thing will be open, exploratory approach with existing and potential customers yields clearly defined development plans for solutions. They stay lean intentionally because Jonas insists on staying informed of the day-to-day architecture and development decisions. Playing a personal role in the smallest parts of their customer relationships and solution development allows him to see trends and opportunities before they mature.
Gyllensvaan says, “When we identify a problem, we act from the standpoint of ‘security first,’ and all development decisions are made with flexibility and independence in mind.” The company can adjust solutions to the customer needs and deliver on key requirements quickly. SyncDog does not rely on an MDM or any other technical framework, making their solutions infrastructure independent. Their framework allows wide range of applications in a secure container for companies increasingly mobilizing their businesses.
Picture Perfect Future
“We are anticipating more customers over the next two years and have been steadily adding leadership and development infrastructure to our organization to serve our customers in the most attentive ways possible. SyncDog will continue to add EMM, MDM, and MAM partnerships to broaden SentinelSecure’s customer base and add functions to systems not currently available all over the world,” assures Jonas.
