Company Details

Update provides the infrastructure, backend and data management for applications on any connected device, regardless of the hardware type, operating system or platform. Buddy supports global data sovereignty, enables complete sandboxing of data and content, and in many cases empowers developers to build cloud-connected apps without writing any server-side code.

Buddy customers have access to rich data and analytics on the usage of their apps and the demographics of their users. While Buddy can physically host this data in specific countries to meet regional privacy policies, this data is owned by the customer and can be completely isolated to preserve user privacy.
