MobileIron named a strong performer in The Forrester Wave: Zero Trust eXtended Ecosystem Platform Providers
I am excited to share the news that MobileIron was named a Strong Performer in The Forrester Wave™: Zero Trust eXtended Ecosystem Platform Providers, Q4 2019 report.
In the report, Forrester identified the most significant vendors in the Zero Trust eXtended ecosystem and evaluated them against 16 criteria in the categories of Current Offering, Strategy, and Market Presence.
MobileIron received the highest possible scores in the criteria of: device security, people/workload security, ZTX roadmap and differentiation and ZTX advocacy. We believe this recognition is further evidence that MobileIron’s zero trust security platform successfully addresses a wide range of network security, device security, data security, workload security, people security and identity challenges while meeting the requirements of the Zero Trust eXtended Ecosystem.
Zero sign-on is a must for enterprises to achieve Zero Trust
MobileIron’s zero sign-on (ZSO) is a differentiated authentication solution that replaces passwords with mobile devices as your user ID. By leveraging a mobile-centric, zero trust security platform, ZSO enables organizations to:
- Realize zero password access to any business app or cloud service.
- Experience easy-to-use consumer-like authentication through biometrics.
- Eliminate the hassle and security risks of passwords.
Mobile devices are the ideal place to begin the zero trust journey.
“MobileIron’s position -- that the most comprehensive place to ‘start’ a Zero Trust enterprise is with the device -- aligns with the current thinking about how enterprises will manage, maintain, and defend the increasingly disparate mobile infrastructure of the future,” wrote Chase Cunningham, principal analyst serving security and risk professionals at Forrester, in the report. We believe this confirms that a mobile centric approach is the right way forward for enterprises to manage, maintain, and defend the increasingly disparate mobile infrastructure. As more businesses embark on a digital transformation journey and shift towards a mobile cloud computing model, they are turning towards MobileIron to implement a mobile-centric zero trust approach to security.
MobileIron’s zero trust security architecture is transformative and comprehensive
The MobileIron zero trust security platform is built on the foundation of unified endpoint management (UEM) capabilities with additional zero trust-enabling technologies, including zero sign-on, multi-factor authentication (MFA), and mobile threat defense (MTD). Together, they enable a seamless, secure user experience by ensuring only authorized users, devices, apps, and services can access business resources including data.
The platform integrates with a wide variety of apps, SaaS tools and infrastructure components that are a must to have for modern enterprises. 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.
