MobileIron recognized for security, application ecosystem support, mobile access control

MobileIron (NASDAQ:MOBL), the company that introduced the industry´s first mobile-centric, zero trust platform for the enterprise, has been named a provider of three IDC MarketScape reports: Worldwide Unified Endpoint Management Software 2019–2020 Vendor Assessment, Worldwide Enterprise Mobility Management Software 2019-2020 Vendor Assessment, and Worldwide Enterprise Mobility Management Software for Ruggedized/ IoT Device Deployments 2019-2020 Vendor Assessment, the company said.

MobileIron has also been named a Major Player in the IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Enterprise Mobility Management Software for SMB 2019-2020 Vendor Assessment.

MobileIron´s unified endpoint management (UEM) platform provides IT and security teams complete control over business data as it flows across devices, apps, networks and cloud services, without sacrificing productivity. It validates every device, establishes user context, checks app authorization, verifies networks, and detects and remediates threats, before granting access to corporate data. Organizations can build upon MobileIron´s UEM platform with ZSO user and device authentication, multi-factor authentication (MFA), and mobile threat defense (MTD) technologies.

The Worldwide Unified Endpoint Management Software 2019–2020 Vendor Assessment and Worldwide Enterprise Mobility Management Software 2019-2020 Vendor Assessment reports recognized MobileIron for enabling frontline workers with secure mobile productivity, stating, “MobileIron has strong support for frontline endpoint management capabilities, such as ´ownerless´ device deployments where iOS/Android/Windows devices can be deployed and used by multiple users (e.g., shift workers using a device for a single purpose or focused/limited-access use case).”

IDC MarketScape vendor assessment model is designed to provide an overview of the competitive fitness of ICT (information and communications technology) suppliers in a given market. The research methodology utilizes a rigorous scoring methodology based on both qualitative and quantitative criteria that results in a single graphical illustration of each vendor´s position within a given market.

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.
