November 11, 2019
The Forrester Wave: UEM

We are ecstatic that MobileIron has been named a Leader in The Forrester Wave™: Unified Endpoint Management, Q4 2019 report. In the report, Forrester identified 13 providers that matter the most and how they compare using 23 evaluation criteria in the categories of current offering, strategy and market presence. MobileIron earned the highest possible scores in the product support and services and   partner ecosystem criteria.

 

UEM is critical to the success of the modern digital workplace

Forrester has identified better digital employee experience, modern management and security as critical factors that differentiate UEM providers and we could not agree more.

 

Enabling better digital experience

Today’s digital workplace could be anywhere: on a plane, in the mountains, on public transit, at a home office or corporate workspace, or on the beach. This modern digital workplace plays a critical part in fueling digital transformation within organizations. Digital workplace initiatives rely on giving users a choice to use a wide range of apps, devices and technologies facilitate and advance business velocity.  To stay productive, employees need seamless and secure access to business resources from their mobile devices, wherever they work.

Our mobile-centric zero trust approach provides comprehensive security for digital workplaces, so companies can be productive and secure at the same time. It validates every device, establishes user context, checks app authorization, verifies networks, and detects and remediates threats, before granting access to corporate data. It creates the ideal intersection between high-grade security and the way people want to work, so organizations can free their employees to be productive without limits.

MobileIron’s approach to mobile-centric, zero trust security significantly reduces risk by giving you complete control over your business data as it flows across devices, apps, networks, and cloud services.  It natively supports all the key components of a Zero Trust eXtended ecosystem such as network security, device security, data security, workload security and people security. It also natively supports many security technologies such as email classification, per-app VPN tunneling and many more. Recently, MobileIron was recognized a strong performer in The Forrester Wave™: Zero Trust eXtended Ecosystem Platform Providers, Q4 2019 report.

Our MobileIron Threat Defense (MTD) solution is integrated with our UEM platform and blocks and remediates all types of mobile device threats on your mobile device. It detects and remediates mobile threats such as device, network, app and phishing attacks, even when the device is offline. MTD helps protect against Android threats and iOS vulnerabilities with continuous protection against mobile device threats that exploit user behavior and security gaps. It enforces local remediation with mobile defense capabilities such as notifying users or quarantining iOS and Android devices.

Our Zero Sign-on solution is a passwordless authentication by using mobile devices as the user ID and primary factor for authentication.  It eliminates the need for passwords on any device — managed or unmanaged. You can go beyond single sign-on (SSO), which still requires a password. With Zero Sign-On you get adaptive authentication, including multi-factor authentication (MFA), based on risk.

 

Native modern management

Our UEM management platform is open, comprehensive and transformative. It uses modern management principles and architecture to secure any cloud, all popular operating systems (iOS, Android, macOS, Win10), SaaS apps, legacy apps and all devices that make up todays digital workplace. Our management platform integrates with a wide variety of apps, SaaS tools and infrastructure components that are a must to have for today’s modern enterprise.
