Press Kit

At Traced, our aim is to redefine mobile cybersecurity to provide the best possible protection to everyone against breaches of privacy and security.

The vision

Traced’s vision is to make the invisible visible.

It’s about making software that shines a light on threats that are invisible to traditional forms of detection. It’s about transparency in pricing, and understanding that security software only protects people when they can afford it and understand it. And it’s about respecting users’ and employees privacy by transparent about what you’re doing and why.

And it’s about making a different kind of security company. A company that understands and talks about the threats that businesses really face every day, rather than the ones that get the best headlines or induce the greatest fear.

…we’re sitting on the bleeding edge of cybersecurity, acting on problems that are affecting people’s lives. It’s nice to feel like we’re making a difference.

Matt Boddy, CTO

The software

The Traced app is a free mobile privacy and security app that protects users of both Android and iOS devices.

Traced Control is a groundbreaking MTD (Mobile Threat Defense) that works with the Traced app to give businesses visibility and analysis of mobile threats, and the tools they need for analysis, investigation and response.

About the Founders

Benedict Jones – Chief Executive Officer

From humble beginnings in Technical Support, Ben realised his passion lay with cybersecurity, and has held positions at industry giants, including Intel, McAfee, and Sophos. Now, as CEO and Co-Founder of Traced he guides the team and its vision towards each new milestone. When he takes off his Head Honcho Hat he sticks around at his computer, programming and generally geeking and gadgeting. He also plays the drums rather well, and enjoys playing tennis and cycling around the Oxfordshire countryside. (Not usually at the same time.)  

“I love the Traced family. Our combined expertise and dynamic, agile way of working means we’re endlessly brainstorming, developing, refining our ideas for the product and the company.”

Matt Boddy – Chief Technology Officer

Matt’s impressive cybersec CV includes the Ministry of Defence, Sophos, and the University of Oxford. As CTO and Co-Founder, Matt has the hair-raisingly exciting job of developing, testing and refining Traced’s unique mobile threat detection and getting it into our products. Outside of work Matt spends a lot of time climbing and running, apparently he sucks at both, but does enjoy the problem-solving qualities of climbing, and running has been a great way to explore the countryside.

“At Traced we’re sitting on the bleeding edge of cybersecurity, acting on problems that are severely affecting people’s lives. It’s nice to be able to carve our own path and really feel like we’re able to make a difference.”
