SUNNYVALE, Calif., May 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Good Technology, the leading provider of secure and managed enterprise mobility and collaboration tools for a range of mobile devices, today announced that it has been positioned in the leaders quadrant for the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Mobile Device Management Software (May 2012). Mobile device management (MDM) is a feature set included in Good Technology's flagship Good for Enterprise™ product, which allows businesses to securely deliver enterprise e-mail, calendar, contacts, data and applications in real-time with an easy-to-use experience on iOS, Android, and Windows Mobile devices.
As smartphones and the "Bring Your Own Device" (BYOD) movement continues to permeate the enterprise, IT leaders are struggling for ways to manage policy, security and support while satisfying employees' demands, increasing productivity and controlling costs. Unlike other MDM solutions, Good Technology's unique 'containerized approach' enables true separation of personal and corporate data. This allows even the largest, most security conscious, and highly regulated enterprises to broadly support BYOD programs, while meeting security, data loss prevention and compliance requirements, all without negatively affecting employee productivity, personal user experience, or privacy.
The Gartner Magic Quadrant for Mobile Device Management (MDM) software comes on the heels of Good Technology's Q1 2012 device activation report, which showed that the number of Good customers deploying iOS and/or Android devices grew by more than 50 percent over the past 12 months, and that the average Good customer deployment size more than doubled over the same period. Even more impressive, in Q1 2012 alone, Good's activations grew by 50 percent over Q4 2011, and were nearly double the two previous quarters combined. This impressive growth is the result of Good's ability to help IT leaders seamlessly manage multi-platform, BYOD environments, while also providing customers with the assurance that their corporate information is secure.
"We're very proud to be a leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant. We offer unparalleled security for our customers, and our business continues to grow as result of our unique approach to securing enterprise data and applications," said John Herrema SVP of Corporate Strategy at Good Technology. "Our unique, application-level, data-focused approach to managing mobile information helps our customers comply with varying security, regulatory and management requirements while allowing employees to use a broader range of devices and applications they love."
