“Enterprise mobility management has moved beyond simple device management. Today it includes things like mobile application, content management and security protection,” says Wireless analyst Jeff Kagan.
CEO John Marshall sees the mobile device management or the MDM market consolidating into a few leading vendors in the next few years. He says BYOD is having an explosive impact on demand for MDM.
“This new smartphone and tablet market is still in the earliest stages of development. That means management and protection are also in the earliest stages as well. This area will become more crowded in the next few years as the opportunity and the threat grows. Who will lead is still the question, but either way there will be a growing among of business,” says Kagan.
