MUNICH and MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Feb. 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- MobileIron (NASDAQ: MOBL) announced today that the company has been named the leader in the IT security segments Mobile Security and Data Leakage Prevention (DLP), according to Experton Group's Security Vendor Benchmark 2016. MobileIron received the highest scores of any vendor in the report and this recognition is particularly significant because Germany is one of the most security-focused markets in the world.

The Experton Group Benchmark 2016 report reviewed among others mobile security vendors and DLP vendors who have notable market share in Germany. MobileIron earned the highest score for its "strength of competitiveness." MobileIron was also the only Enterprise Mobility Management vendor to be named a leader outranking Industry heavyweights including IBM, SAP, Symantec, and Trend Micro.

The report states: "MobileIron enjoys a very high competitive strength in the German market, due to its awareness in the business customer segment, its high degree of adoption within renowned DAX-listed companies, and its market access through its partnerships with the three top mobile operators Deutsche Telekom, Vodafone, and Telefonica."

In the DLP segment Experton Group points out that these solutions are gaining importance since it becomes increasingly difficult for companies to control data movements and data transfers. According to Experton Group, MobileIron focuses on monitoring and protecting mobile data, both locally on devices, in the corporate network and in the cloud.

"Mobile has destroyed the old model of enterprise security by introducing a new operating system architecture and putting the user in control and, as a result, the threat landscape has changed and companies need a new security platform," said Ojas Rege, VP Strategy, MobileIron. "We are very proud to be recognized as the security leader in Experton Group's Security Vendor benchmark 2016 and we take our leadership ranking as proof that we are solving the right security problems for our customers."
