SAN FRANCISCO, May 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Framehawk, Inc., an innovative start-up providing fast, secure mobile access to enterprise applications, today announced it has been included in the "Cool Vendors in Client Computing, 2013" by Gartner, Inc.,1  a prominent information technology and research firm.

A key theme common to all the solutions that Gartner recognized in the research is their "increased focus on managing the assets the enterprise truly cares about — applications and data — rather than the entire device and OS," according to the report.  "This theme has swept through the enterprise mobility space over the past two years, and is now taking hold more broadly in enterprise client computing."

"We see our inclusion in the Gartner Cool Vendor report as a confirmation of our mission to make application mobilization fast, secure, and cost-effective for enterprises, " said Peter Badger, co-founder and CEO of Framehawk.  "We believe mobility gives both application development and IT new and impactful opportunities to empower employees, including embracing Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) initiatives.  We believe Framehawk gives enterprises a way to adopt mobility quickly and safely, without having to rewrite their portfolio of applications, yet still taking advantage of touch interfaces and the intuitive tablet user experience."
