IBM leads the pack in a new Forrester Wave evaluation of enterprise mobile management solutions, closely followed by Citrix, MobileIron, AirWatch by VMware, Good Technology, BlackBerry, Soti, Symantec, SAP, and Sophos.
“These 10 vendors come from completely different backgrounds; some have been acquired, others have acquired smaller vendors, and a few have remained their own enterprise,” writes Analyst Christian Kane. “Despite their contrasting history, there is a shared focus on two initiatives: enterprise mobility and security. The companies separated themselves from the other vendors by introducing strong security background without disruption for the employee. The Leaders neatly balance OS, application, and data management functionality while providing flexible container options and productivity applications. These vendors have also demonstrated a strong vision and road map to help customers as they bring their PC and mobile management strategies together.”
