What defines Lookout today is what got us started in the first place.
When we first got started, smartphones barely existed — now there are more than a billion shipped each year. Before everything and everyone went mobile, we knew it was going to change computing forever. And today we live in a world with billions of connected devices and we need someone to protect it. That’s Lookout.
We build security technology that protects people, businesses, governments, and critical infrastructure from the growing threats in the post-PC era. Mobile from the start, we take a different approach to security, using the world’s largest mobile dataset, cloud technology and the power of our 50 million users to proactively protect the devices and networks that power our connected world.
Lookout founders James Burgess, John Hering and Kevin Mahaffey
We’re passionate about designing products that people love and, more importantly, that they trust. We’re proud to have our efforts recognized with awards like 2013 World Economic Forum Tech Pioneer and Fast Company’s Most Innovative Mobile Companies.
