MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., April 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- MobileIron (www.mobileiron.com), the innovator in mobile device management and security, today announced that it is positioned in the Leaders quadrant of Gartner, Inc.'s Magic Quadrant for Mobile Device Management Software 2011.*
The Magic Quadrant evaluates vendors based on their completeness of vision and their ability to execute. Offering (product) strategy, innovation, customer experience, and overall viability are among the highest weighted criteria. The report states that "Leaders demonstrate balanced progress, effort and clout in all execution and vision categories. If they do not dominate in sales, they are, at a minimum, the most critical competitive threat to their peers in open competition. A leading vendor is not a default choice for all buyers, and clients are warned not to assume that they should buy only from the Leaders quadrant. To stay on the right side of the chart, Leaders (and Visionaries) must offer features that remove significant roadblocks to the complex challenges enterprises face when attempting to treat mobile consumer devices as business tools. One example of a competitively disruptive activity might include delivering a sandbox method to prevent data leakage between personal and business applications."
"Mobile management, security, and apps are now top of mind for the Global 2000 CIO," said Bob Tinker, CEO, MobileIron. "MobileIron is the only platform built from the ground up to solve these problems for multi-national companies. We consider our positioning in the Leaders quadrant by Gartner confirmation of the strength of our data-driven architecture, our track record of innovation, and, most importantly, the success of our customers and partners."
