Globo | Our Customers
Globo was established in Athens, but operated in more than 45 countries before unexpectedly closing its doors in 2015. Globo’s platform offered a wide range of solutions to manage and secure mobile devices in business environments across a variety of industries including government, financial services, retail, and education. It was designed as a comprehensive offering, helping clients through app design and secure deployment, with device and app level controls, monitoring, and management.
In 2007, Globo became a publicly traded company when they completed a reverse-merger and were listed on the London Stock Exchange’s AIM market. Subsequently, the Greek-based corporation divested from its legacy e-business software operations and focused solely in its international expansion. This expansion included the acquisition of Notify Technology and Sourcebits and the relocation of their North American headquarters to Palo Alto.
Globo’s efforts yielded many accolades, including placement on Gartner’s 2014 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Mobility Management, but the company ceased operations, laid off its entire team and was placed in receivership after CEO Konstantinos Papadimitrakopoulos confirmed so-called “accounting irregularities” to the Board of Directors in 2015. This led to the delisting of Globo PLC’s stock and an on-going investigation into potential fraudulent activity. While the demise of the company was unfortunate, former Notify Technology founder and CEO Paul DePond reportedly regained the mobile device management intellectual property originally developed by Notify and will continue bringing those products to market.
