The report, Market Overview: Cloud-Hosted Mobile Device Management Solutions and Managed Services, cites Fiberlink as one of two innovators in a landscape of more than 40 vendors.
Fiberlinks single pane of glass, web-based console and experience with and commitment to security and compliance in the cloud computing arena has earned the vendor traction with the US federal government and a place on customers shortlists, noted Forrester Research Principal Analyst Benjamin Gray and Researcher Christian Kane in the report.
Fiberlink was among 24 vendor companies that were interviewed for this report, and found to be an innovator in cloud MDM. The report shows which vendor companies have certain criteria among core mobile device management, mobile security management, mobile application management and differentiation. Vendors were segmented into four groups, innovators, new entrants, best-of-breed and services.
