We are Graphite Software
We believe today’s mobile device does not protect anyone’s privacy. Whether just ourselves, or a targeted organization, there is need for better control over your data, your accounts, the device, the sensors, the networks, your location, your apps and messages.
Graphite Software was founded in 2013 by serial entrepreneurs and the former founders of Cloakware, to address privacy and give users flexibility that just has not been available. As a start, we wanted one device, but where the accounts and apps could be separated. Secondly, and closely related, we wanted a device with the services provided by Google and their explicit loss in personal information, but also with the ability to stay private when desired.
In 2015 we partnered with Silent Circle and launched the revolutionary Blackphone 2, which was the first ever Google/non-Google phone all-in-one. While we were producing custom ROMs, it was hard to make the software work completely. So partnered with numerous smartphone OEMs, including launching the Xiaomi Second Space feature in 2016, which ultimately deployed to over 200M+ devices. But working with OEMs is time consuming and achieving our complete vision was proving difficult.
In 2017, something special happened with Android, called Project Treble. This re-architecture of Android means that custom ROMs can be developed and deployed to third-party commercial smartphone hardware in a scalable fashions. We have re-trenched, re-focused on our core expertise and are offering a complete mobile security solution for those who care about privacy.
We bring years of high-tech experience in start-ups, software development, SaaS, strategic planning and marketing, all used to develop and bring to market innovative solutions around device security.
