According to press of PRNewswire on April 28 that The EMM market itself has evolved from standalone point solutions to encompass integrated and more strategic EMM suites. The sector is now transitioning to unified endpoint management by adding management of desktop computers, wearables, and select IoT devices. MobileIron is at the forefront of this effort, viewing its mission as "providing security wherever data flows."
"Being a standalone EMM vendor, MobileIron is not compelled to support a parent company's infrastructure; it has the flexibility and independence to resolve a customer's needs in the best possible manner," said Frost & Sullivan Mobile and Wireless Industry Director Jeanine Sterling. "It also offers customers numerous choices, including type of delivery system (cloud or premise), types of operating systems, and a range of trusted channel partners (carriers, value-added resellers (VARs), systems integrators)."
The MobileIron portfolio reflects the high priority given to technology innovation. MobileIron is the first vendor to earn the Common Criteria certification, which is especially valued by high-security customers such as government departments or financial services organizations. The company also has 46 modern EMM patents granted in the areas of analytics, architecture, and data/app security. Partnerships are key, with MobileIron leveraging both its own expertise and a carefully crafted ecosystem of technology partners.
"MobileIron has achieved a number of firsts in areas as diverse as enterprise app store, jailbreak detection, selective wipe, and mobile certificate management," noted Sterling. "The company's wide range of products and outstanding quality, price, and flexibility benefits continue to impress enterprise customers across a range of verticals."
MobileIron offers customers a variety of EMM price and functionality levels. Its solution is sold in three tiered EMM bundles, with a choice of subscription pricing models available. This ability to satisfy customer needs in the areas of flexibility, choice, security certificates, and collaboration has resulted in an impressive and consistent renewal rate.
