In the report titled "Managing PCs, Smartphones and Tablets and the Future Ahead," Gartner states that:
"By 2020, smartphone security and management architectures will dominate the endpoint computing environment, while traditional PC image management will decline except on dedicated appliance-style devices."
This validates what we at MobileIron have been pioneering for years, that is, modern mobile operating system architecures are fundamentally more secure than the desktop ever was, when deployed in conjuction with a security platform like MobileIron.
This unstoppable trend is rapidly impacting the market and causing some major changes in the technology landscape. In 2015 alone we have seen the following major events:
Android for Work
Google has stepped up its effort to make Android enterprise-ready with Android for Work, furthering their commitment to the modern mobile OS architecture by requiring EMM in the back-end.
Microsoft followed suit, requiring EMM to secure and manage Windows 10 devices, from mobile form factors all the way to desktops and laptops.
Microsoft entered the market with Intune and, although they are still not in Gartner's Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Mobility Management Suites, this move demonstrates the importance of the EMM market today, as well as into the future. This year Microsoft even joined both the MobileIron and VMware user conferences on stage.
Apple has become increasingly vocal about the importance of the enterprise mobility market, first with their partnership with IBM for enterprise mobile apps, then with the announcement of the Mobility Partner Program (MPP) in which Mobileiron plays a special role with our OneTouch product initiative.
What Matters is Customers
All of the above, combined with the inherent complexity of a multi-OS world, has created some confusion in the market. At MobileIron we stay focused on giving our customers the security platform that they need to trasform their business with mobile technologies. What rises above the noise is the amazing number of our customers who are willing to go on the record talking about the value they get from MobileIron.
In the last 18 months alone we have had 71 customers featured either in a formal case study or in the press with solutions ranging from BlackBerry migration (a classic) and mobile content management, all the way to business transformation through the secure rollout of mobile applications.
We are very proud of this prestigious list and strongly encourage our prospects to see what these great Mobile First companies are doing to turn mobile into a competitive advantege.
