Shifting business needs is driving the requirement for robust mobile device management and security

Mobility brings new challenges
Mobility brings new challenges

  • Networked computers

    • Unlimited bandwidth

    • No need to prioritize bandwidth

    • Local support for users

    • IT can easily get to devices

    • All Windows PCs

    • Physical building security

  • Mobile devices

    • Bandwidth is limited

    • Applications get priority bandwidth

    • No local support

    • IT may never see devices

    • Variety of devices and platforms

    • Easily lost or stolen

Common solutions fall short
Common solutions fall short

  • Management via application

    • Limited capabilities with app focus

    • Insufficient platform management

    • Poor coverage of mobile platforms

    • Lack of integration with enterprise infrastructure

  • Desktop management

    • Insufficient endpoint security

    • Built for high-speed constant connection

    • Poor coverage of mobile platforms

    • Complex implementation and ongoing use

Idc mobile device management forecast
IDC mobile device management forecast

  • Excerpts from the IDC report

    • IDC forecasts the worldwide market for MDM enterprise software will grow to $345.0 million in 2011

    • Sybase iAnywhere is the 2006 Mobile Device Management Enterprise market share leader. Afaria has been the market leader since market sizing began

    • Sybase iAnywhere’s tight integration between mobile device management and security will become increasingly important as enterprises look to turn to one vendor for a mobility suite instead of point solutions to address each issue
