Sophos was among the select companies that Forrester Research, Inc. invited to participate in its report, The Forrester Wave™: Enterprise Mobile Management, Q3 2014. In this evaluation, we were cited as a leader in enterprise mobile management (EMM).
Each of the vendor products evaluated, including our EMM product Sophos Mobile Control, has a large install base, more than $10 million in revenue in 2013, and significant enterprise interest.
Sophos Mobile Control (SMC) received the highest possible rating in the categories of Architecture and scale; Email and directory support; Employee experience; Support; Training; and Partners. Sophos earned the top ranking among all evaluated vendors in Employee experience.
Vendors were evaluated based on current version offering (SMC version 4.0), strategy, and market presence.
As one of 10 vendors named as Leaders, we’re pleased to be considered among the “leaders of the pack.”
According to Forrester:
The 10 vendors come from completely different backgrounds; some have been acquired, others have acquired smaller MDM vendors, and a few have remained their own enterprise. Despite their contrasting history, there is a shared focus on two initiatives: enterprise mobility and security. The companies separated themselves from the other vendors by introducing strong security background without disruption for the employee. The Leaders neatly balance OS, application, and data management functionality while providing flexible container options and productivity applications. These vendors have also demonstrated a strong vision and road map to help customers as they bring their PC and mobile management strategies together.
SMC enables users to manage devices centrally and simply with a single platform to manage and secure all users’ devices. SMC’s self-service portal enables organizations to have high ease-of-use, augmenting user buy-in and alleviating IT workload.
