Security & Easy Access to Mobile Data: A Key Catalyst

The growing focus on client satisfaction is increasing mobility among employees of an organization. The job requires employees to switch between client site and office which in turn leads to increased use of devices including smartphones, enabling employees to access client data on the go.

The aforementioned factors increase the risk of losing or compromising valuable client data to unsecured networks, for instance. This calls for a secure platform ensuring seamless access to client data irrespective of employee location and time, which is where MobileIron’s new solutions come handy.

According to Brian Foster, SVP of product management, MobileIron, “The latest additions to our capabilities, including expanded support for macOS are proof of our commitment to our customers as they deploy a mobile strategy for their employees, and extended workforce, resulting in a more productive enterprise.”

Market Opportunity

MobileIron appears to be benefiting from growing clout of its Mobile Application Management solution. Robust adoption of MAM solutions is expected to favor top-line growth, going ahead.

Per a Stratistics MRC report as revealed by Reuters, worldwide enterprise mobility market is envisioned to reach approximately $1225.8 billion in 2026 from $206.13 billion in 2017 at a CAGR of 21.9%.
