We’re only a week into 2014 and it’s already shaping up to be a powerful year for mobile, technology, and AirPatrol. Just this past Monday, Sysorex sent out a press release on its definitive agreement to acquire us (you can read it here).
I couldn’t be more excited about this development for AirPatrol Corporation. Since coming on as CEO last year, AirPatrol has truly grown.
- AirPatrol has expanded from a primarily mobile security solution to a company that is leading the Location Based Services (LBS) market.
- Our first offices in Canada and Maryland have both been upgraded into new, bigger and better locations with custom interiors.
- AirPatrol has opened three more offices in Australia, Brazil and in California.
- Finally, the AirPatrol team has doubled in number.
Technology continues to make the front page with inventions previously believed to be too good to be true. Contextually aware devices are on the top of that list and will lead the way for what we want out of tomorrow’s phones and more. With AirPatrol’s industry leading partners, we will continue to show what context aware and smart devices can really do for individuals, enterprises and the government. But we aren’t keeping the how a secret, we’re talking about it quite a lot in the next few months at the Mobile Marketing Exchange, at CyberTech’s “Securing the Internet of Things” at RSA and at the 2014 MacIT Conference (check here for more 2014 events).
As of last year, talk barely tops messaging and other uses as the most common activity among adult smartphone owners and smartphones are used as GPS over 40% of the time (AdAge, Dec 2013). Location is growing in importance as the newest devices team up with big data to really know you and give you what is most relevant to your interests and habits.
It’s going to be an exciting year for tech, mobile, location, and context aware devices. If you want to be kept up to date on the latest, jump onto our new biweekly newsletter by sending Lauren a quick email.
2013 was great, but 2014 will most definitely be bigger.
