Privoro

Founded in 2013, Privoro aspired to provide a way of opting out of the mobile revolution’s unwarranted data collection and surveillance. Eschewing the vulnerable smartphone ecosystem, the company has pioneered first-of-their-kind mobile security hardware protections that allow individuals, enterprises and governments to take back control over their most important information. Today, a number of high-profile, security-conscious organizations are employing Privoro’s SafeCase – a unique mobile hardware accessory – to protect against mobile espionage. The core components of the SafeCase platform hold the keys to an exciting roadmap of high-security, hardware-based alternatives for a number of critical use cases.
