Lookout is a security technology company dedicated to making the post-PC world safer for everyone. We 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, we take a different approach, tackling security as a data problem. We’ve created the world’s largest mobile data set and combined it with the power of our 40 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.
Today Lookout is a rapidly growing company based in San Francisco, California. Lookout is funded by leading investors including Khosla Ventures, Trilogy Equity Partners, Accel Partners and Index Ventures.
