A simple idea goes a long way for these young entrepreneurs in Singapore. When one of their co-founders keep losing his mobile phone, the team got together to find a solution to this familiar problem. tenCube now develops and sells leading mobile-phone security software called WaveSecure. Among other features, WaveSecure allows you to lock your phone remotely, track usage of the device, back up data through the Web, and remotely wipe your private data off the phone even after you lose it. The company boasts high-profile clients such as the Singapore Police Force and the Singapore Defense Ministry. The consumer version of WaveSecure proved to be very popular when it was launched in December 2007, the company had 60,000 WaveSecure users within 90 days of its launch; it has since been adopted by leading brands such as Nokia and Telenor to secure their users' mobile devices. The team is made up of graduates of the National University of Singapore.
