SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 8, 2015) -  Bluebox Security®, the mobile app security and analytics company first to pioneer self-defending apps for consumers, BYOD employees and the extended enterprise, today announced that it has become an Apigee® technology partner to help enable enterprise mobile app developers to quickly and simply innovate with the assurance of enterprise-grade security on mobile devices.

Bluebox Security enables secure mobile productivity, removing the barriers that adding traditional security solutions has entailed. Mobile-first customers can ensure a secure end-to-end mobile app experience, from user to API through to the backend, with zero-touch security. Apigee and Bluebox both empower developers to create robust apps that securely leverage APIs. Now Apigee developers can have the peace of mind that Bluebox's self-defending app technology can further safeguard the apps and their data.

"We are pleased to welcome Bluebox to the growing Apigee partner ecosystem. Customers have been protecting their APIs with out-of-the-box Apigee Edge security policies such as OAuth; now, with Bluebox, they can easily extend the security model to sensitive data stored in mobile applications," said Subra Kumaraswamy, Apigee head of product security.

"Our partnership with a leading innovator in the API economy could not have come at a better time," said Pam Kostka, Bluebox Security CEO. "The work Bluebox has done with customers has uncovered that mobile apps are the new attack gateway to the backend. In the rush to become mobile-first, enterprises have seriously underinvested in protecting their mobile apps, leaving this back door open to critical enterprise resources. Bluebox's zero-touch security effortlessly transforms any mobile app into a self-defending app, complementing the API security and governance features in the Apigee Edge API management platform."

To see the partnership in action, join Bluebox Security co-founder Caleb Sima for a panel at Apigee's upcoming I Love APIs Conference in San Jose, California. Caleb will also be conducting live demos of Bluebox Security's technology at the conference's Innovation Lab. For more details, see below:
