IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Mobile Threat Management Security Software 2017 Vendor Assessment
By: Michael Jennett, Phil HochmuthProgram Vice President, Enterprise Mobility
This IDC study represents a vendor assessment of providers offering mobile threat management (MTM) software through the IDC MarketScape model. The assessment reviews both quantitative and qualitative characteristics that define current market demands and expected buyer needs for MTM software. The evaluation is based on a comprehensive and rigorous framework that assesses how each vendor stacks up to its peers, and the framework highlights the key factors that are expected to be the most significant for achieving success in the MTM market over the short term and the long term.
"Mobile threat management is emerging as a must-have puzzle piece for successful enterprise mobility deployment and management," says Mike Jennett, research vice president, Enterprise Mobility Strategies, at IDC. "With the expansion of mobile usage for corporate work, the need for secure communications and the shoring up of device vulnerabilities is becoming essential, and the marketplace is responding with a robust offering of tools now available to the enterprise from MTM vendors that integrate with existing security and enterprise mobility management (EMM) tools. Integrating these tools into existing enterprise mobility deployments will expand enterprise security capabilities to handle both device and network risks associated with mobile deployments."
