COLUMBIA, Md., Aug. 22, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- BoxTone, the leader in Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM), today announced it was included in Gartner's Critical Capabilities for Mobile Device Management Report (M. Basso, P. Redmen / July 29, 2011). Gartner reviewed a set of enterprise Mobile Device Management (MDM) offerings across a series of critical capabilities and use cases to provide quantitative product ratings.

This report will be of particular interest to companies and agencies that are focused on addressing issues of mobile service quality and secure policy enforcement for devices and applications. In fact, according to the report, "Before entering MDM product selection analysis, organizations need to identify the risks and benefits of introducing support for corporate applications on personal devices. They then need to identify the IT policies required to control deployments, manage risks and support users. Finally, they need to choose the appropriate management approach and the products and services that can help to enforce those policies in a cost-effective way."

Many of BoxTone's customers use mobility in regulated industries and mission critical environments where the demand for best in class capabilities crosses both secure policy and quality of service. The Company's EMM platform provides a single point of control to continuously deliver maximum mobile performance and security at the lowest cost and risk. Within the EMM platform, BoxTone's Advanced MDM Engine uniquely combines real-time automated policy, compliance, configuration and application management capabilities tied to existing enterprise IT systems to ensure mobile security at all times. BoxTone's Advanced Core integrates real-time performance monitoring, sophisticated analytics and embedded expertise to proactively alert to service issues, automate support and reduce downtime for highest user quality of experience.  

"We believe BoxTone's overall score in the Gartner Critical Capabilities for MDM report confirms our long-term approach to mobility management – that security and quality of service are two sides of the same coin and must be addressed in tandem," said Brian Reed, vice president of products and CMO for BoxTone. "The accelerated growth of mobility in the enterprise is mandating a change in how customers and vendors approach mobility management – they must go beyond the race to just securely connect devices to address both active Policy Enforcement and IT Service management as core tenants of the full lifecycle of enterprise mobility management."

Today, BoxTone's software is used by 40 of the Fortune 100 companies, four of the five largest U.S. Banks, five of the top six U.S. Federal agencies and all of the major managed service providers (MSPs) to provide mobile device, support and operations management across more than 900,000 mobile users, devices, and applications.
