DB Africa is a cybersecurity business our focus is

DataBlock is a device designed to shield users
while charging smart devices in public. DB's story
comes together via a fantastic brand of energetic
agencies, each adding their own individual flair to
our special mix.
We started off as a very small business
The DB programme was the brainchild of a small think tank in
the heart of Maryland USA. The team identified with research
the USB charging evolution: “Devices; phones, cameras,
watches, tablets, and others would readjust to be compatible
with a generic standard. USB.”
The think tank examined the rapid deployment of “public charging stations” and the collective and individualised risks associated with each new connection. The uncovering of the phrase Juice Jacking and later the hacking script developed back in 2011 led to a breakthrough. The hacking script specifically targeted users utilizing public charging docks. The team travelled to New York, Amsterdam, Hong Kong and Shenzhen to patent, prototype and perfect the DataBlock device for global distribution.
The team proceeds to innovate new prototypes and different iterations in the constant fight for personal information protection. Pipelined versions include; DataBlock 3D, DataBlock multiplug, DataBlock car, and DataBlock wireless.
