MobileIron (NASDAQ:MOBL), the company that introduced the industry´s first mobile-centric, zero trust platform for the enterprise, has announced that Gartner, Inc., the provider of research and analysis on the global information technology industry, has recognized MobileIron in its 2019 Critical Capabilities for Unified Endpoint Management Tools report, the company said.
The report examined the capabilities of 13 vendors to meet the needs of organizations in four distinct use cases: PC management, nontraditional device management, highly secure and regulated industries, and unmanaged devices/BYO. MobileIron received the fourth highest product score for the PC management and highly secure and regulated industries use cases, and the fifth highest product score for the nontraditional device management and unmanaged devices/BYO use cases.
MobileIron is redefining enterprise security with the industry´s first mobile-centric, zero trust platform built on the foundation of unified endpoint management (UEM) to secure access and protect data across the perimeter-less enterprise. Zero trust assumes that bad actors are already in the network and secure access is determined by a “never trust, always verify” approach. MobileIron goes beyond identity management and gateway approaches by utilizing a more comprehensive set of attributes before granting access. A mobile-centric, zero trust approach validates the device, establishes user context, checks app authorization, verifies the network, and detects and remediates threats before granting secure access to a device or user.
