As mobile phones and tablets become more central to our lives, and
increasingly our primary way of computing, protecting those devices and
the data they contain is critical. To help their customers protect their
data and devices, Orange, one of the world’s leading telecommunications
operators, is forming a strategic partnership with Lookout,
the leading mobile security company.
Orange customers in France, Slovakia, Spain, in addition to EE and
T-Mobile customers in the UK, will benefit by having Lookout available
on select Android devices starting in early 2013, with more markets and
phones to come throughout 2013 and beyond. With Lookout on Orange
phones, millions of Orange customers will benefit from easy-to-use
protection from malware, phishing attacks, data loss, privacy threats
and phone loss or theft.
Orange customers will also have access to Lookout’s recently launched
Signal Flare feature, which helps people to locate a phone even after
the battery has died. In addition, Orange markets may offer the premium
version of Lookout as part of Orange offers, providing additional
protection and privacy controls for customers.
“It is critical we help protect our customers, and this partnership with
Lookout allows us to provide additional protection for our customers
without them having to take any action, or become experts on mobile
security,” said Paul-François Fournier, Executive Vice President, Orange
Technocentre. “By partnering with and investing in Lookout, we are
ensuring that we will continue to help keep our customers safe in the
future and that the Orange & Publicis fund managed by Iris Capital is
supporting a company that is positioned to become a global leader in the
“Orange is taking a leadership position in making security an essential
part of the smartphone experience,” said John Hering, CEO and founder of
Lookout. “The combination of Orange’s customer focus and international
reach and Lookout’s innovative approach to security will lead to a
superior and safer experience for its customers. This partnership
underscores our commitment to the European market."
As part of the partnership, Orange is also making a strategic investment
in Lookout through the Orange & Publicis strategic venture capital
initiative, which is managed by Iris Capital. This is one of the fund’s
first investments in a US company and reinforces Orange’s belief in the
future of mobile security and Lookout’s leadership position.

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before.
