BoxTone Named an Innovator in Independent Research Firm's Market Overview for MDM Solutions(January 09, 2012)
COLUMBIA, MD -- (Marketwire) -- 01/09/12 -- BoxTone, the leader in Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM), today announced that it has been named an "innovator" in the Forrester Research, Inc. Market Overview: On-premises MDM Solutions. BoxTone was one of only four vendors recognized as innovators in the report out of a marketplace of 40 vendors offering these solutions.
Forrester Research interviewed 24 vendor companies and 184 user companies on the following key criteria: mobile configuration, reporting, and support including over-the-air (OTA) configuration, intelligent troubleshooting, real-time inventory and advanced monitoring with alerts; Mobile Security Management, including PIN enforcement, selective data wipe, data encryption and data leak prevention; Mobile Application Management (MAM), including remote software distribution, whitelist/blacklist and enterprise app stores; and key capabilities across platform support, service management integration and expense management.
The Forrester Research Market Overview on On-premises MDM Solutions states that while BoxTone and a few others have driven much of the innovation in the MDM market, "BoxTone takes a service management approach to MDM, delivering automated support and operations management in its solution. BoxTone has also devoted significant resources to making Android a viable platform in the enterprise, partnering with Apperian and 3LM to focus on enterprise software integration."(1)
Furthermore, when reviewing mobile security, the Forrester Research Market Overview on Mobile Security, Q4 2011, highlights "BoxTone really shines in device compliance and device management, and that the product provides enterprise scalability. On Android, the 3LM capabilities provide some much-needed and unique security functions, such as app control, encryption, antitheft features, and data leak prevention. BoxTone clearly understands enterprise needs, and its admin portal is one of the most comprehensive that we've seen in this study; it provides administrators an extensive array of configuration options and controls."(2)
"As mobility expands and becomes more integrated into the enterprise to support revenue growth, customer service improvements and business transformation, IT management is looking for a single platform to manage it as a core business-critical IT service," said Alan Snyder, CEO at BoxTone. "Our relentless focus on helping the enterprise simplify the delivery of mobile services is why our unique automation innovations are essential. BoxTone is delighted to be named an MDM Innovator by Forrester Research, validating our mission to help organizations mobilize as quickly and efficiently as possible, at the lowest cost and risk."
