DALLAS and BEIJING, July 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- NQ Mobile (NYSE: NQ), a leading global provider of mobile Internet services, today announced that its subsidiary, Beijing NationSky Network Technology, Inc. (NationSky), a leading provider of mobile services to enterprises in China, will provide enterprise mobile device management (MDM) services to Guangzhou Overseas Chinese Hospital, a major hospital in Guangdong province, in cooperation with GE Healthcare China, one of the world's top-tier medical technology and services providers. Additionally, AnBang Insurance Group, one of the largest insurance companies in China, has chosen NQSky as its MDM service provider to manage its corporate issued mobile devices.
These two large enterprise customers bring the total to more than 20 major customers that have selected the NQSky MDM solution since its launch in February 2013. NQ Mobile and NationSky anticipate the NQSky solution to further penetrate the market and accelerate growth throughout 2013.
"Mobility is changing enterprises' working and selling style and MDM is an increasingly important issue to all enterprises, including healthcare practitioners, banks, brokers and insurance companies. The demand will continue to grow along with the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) trend," said Omar Khan, Co-Chief Executive Officer, NQ Mobile. "With NQSky, enterprises will be able to seamlessly integrate mobile devices with existing enterprise IT policies and fast-track mobility adoption, making this a unique solution."

Offering a suite of customized services under the NQSky brand, NationSky provides its customers end-to-end solutions from mobile data strategy consulting, architecture design and deployment, to mobile device, content and application management. NationSky also provides industry-specific solutions as well as complete platform integration services.
"With the acquisition of NationSky, NQ Mobile became the only mobile security provider in the world to approach security and privacy holistically for health care providers, large insurance companies, banks and other major enterprises," said Charles Hou, Chief Executive Officer, NationSky. "Mobile malware attacks have been steadily increasing in China and around the world, both for professionals and consumers. With NQSky, we can help our enterprise customers, regardless of the platform."
