EMM Market Overview
The EMM market is evolving rapidly. CIOs see the potential to leverage mobility to better run, grow and transform their organizations. Indeed, the CIOs represented in our 2014 CIO survey ranked mobility among their top three technology priorities. As enterprises’ use of mobility becomes increasingly complex, their requirements to protect data and support users will become more complex as well.
Organizations usually adopted MDM to help enable mobile users. As requirements broadened to more applications and access to more sources of content, MDM evolved into a broader set of technologies, which is now commonly referred to as EMM. The technology is at an adolescent stage, and has significant room to improve. Innovation around the EMM space in mobile application management, mobile data management, IAM and mobile security may alter the way organizations approach these challenges, as well as broaden the technologies in the EMM toolset.
The EMM Buyer Is Moving to End-User Computing
Several important trends will bring about change in the EMM market. The most important trend is the movement of EMM into the end-user computing (EUC) operations group.
Enterprise mobility is evolving from a special-purpose IT discipline into a general-purpose IT practice. Organizations initially chose an EMM solution based on how well it supported their email and calendaring needs, how well it worked with a certain mobile application, or its suitability to manage a particular device. Consequently, the buyer for the EMM tool was often someone in messaging, applications or telecom. However, organizations have evolved their mobility practice to serve many purposes, not only messaging, but also collaboration, productivity and business process optimization. This has led to the EUC group, which is charged to look holistically at enterprise computing requirements, to take ownership of mobility management.
Because of current limitations in mobile platforms, there is a need to combine applications and their management capabilities, broadly referred to as “containerization.” Smartphones and tablets operate in a sandboxed architecture (see “Learn the Taxonomy of Mobile and Endpoint Management Architectures”), which means management tools can exert only controls allowed by the OS. If the OS does not provide the necessary management capabilities, the capabilities must be built into the application. This means organizations may have to buy a specific EMM tool to support a specific application. This has also forced EMM vendors to build email applications with management capability not yet present in OS platforms, such as iOS and Android. This is a suboptimal situation. It means not all applications can be supported, and it has resulted in many management tool vendors stepping outside their core competency into developing messaging, productivity and other applications.However, the situation is improving. Mobile OSs are maturing their management and security capabilities. Apple made many device and application management improvements in iOS7.
Enterprise mobility management (EMM) suites consist of policy and configuration management tools and a management overlay for applications and content intended for mobile devices based on smartphone OSs. They are an evolution from previous-generation mobile device management (MDM) products that lacked application and content management. IT organizations and service providers use EMM suites to deliver IT support to mobile end users and to maintain security policies.
EMM suites provide the following core functions:
• Hardware inventory
• Application inventory
• OS configuration management
• Mobile app deployment, updating and removal
• Mobile app configuration and policy management
• Remote view and control for troubleshooting
• Execute remote actions, such as remote wipe
• Mobile content management
Executing these core functions through MDM represented the early implementation of these functions. MDM tools have evolved to incorporate advanced mobile application management and mobile content management.
Mobile application management applies management and policy control functionality to individual applications, which are then managed by the EMM console. This capability is necessary when the OS (e.g., iOS, Android, Windows Phone) does not provide the required management capability or when organizations elect not to install an MDM profile on the device. There are two basic forms of mobile application management:
• Preconfigured applications: These generally include a secure personal information manager (PIM) for email, calendaring and contact management, as well as a secure browser provided by the EMM provider or a third party. These tools are configured to be managed and secured by the EMM system.
• Application extensions: These apply policies to applications through the use of a software development kit (SDK) or by wrapping. This capability is necessary when the OS does not provide the required management capability or when organizations elect not to install an MDM agent on the device.
Mobile content management enables users to access content from their mobile devices. The mobile content management function within EMM suites has three fundamental roles:
1. Secure Container — A client-side app that enables a user to store content securely on a mobile device. The EMM can enforce policies such as authentication, file sharing and copy/paste restriction. Content comes from three primary sources:
o Email (attachments)
o Content pushed by the administrator or another internal person
o Content accessed from a back-end repository
2. Content Push — Push-based document delivery. Some specific functions are:
o Control document versions
o Alert a user of new files
o Flag content expiration date
3. Content Access — A connection to a back-end repository where users can pull content to their devices. Specific capabilities are:
o Support for specific back-end repositories (SharePoint, Documentum, etc.)
o Restrict downloads while roaming
o Audit logging to track who accesses/downloads files
Absolute Software is a publicly traded company based in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The company provides EMM functionality as an extension of its device-tracking and client-management products. It has a strong presence in education, state and local governments, and healthcare. Its product Absolute Manage provides diverse coverage, supporting iOS, Android, Windows Phone, Mac OS X, and Windows 7 and Windows 8 (Windows 7/8). The product is offered via an on-premises offering or SaaS model.
VMware is a publicly traded company based in Palo Alto, California. In February 2014, VMware completed its acquisition of AirWatch. VMware plans to use AirWatch to build a workspace aggregator, complementing its desktop virtualization and SaaS application management technologies. However, AirWatch will continue to operate as a separate business unit and is branded as AirWatch by VMware. The product suite, offered via SaaS or on-premises, consists of all the standard components of an EMM product plus an application reputation service and basic management for PCs and Macs. AirWatch’s offering has comprehensive EMM functionality, which allows it to frequently win deals.
BlackBerry is a publicly traded company based in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. BlackBerry Enterprise Service (BES) is used primarily by organizations that support BlackBerry devices. BES10, the current version of the product, is provided via an on-premises offering or a SaaS model. BES offers the best support for BlackBerry 10 devices. However, the company announced that it will open BlackBerry 10 to be managed by other EMM providers. BlackBerry reduced and simplified its BES10 pricing, and created an EZ Pass program, allowing customers to update BES 5 and BlackBerry OS licenses to BES10 licenses for BlackBerry 10, iOS and Android devices. BES10 provides support for other platforms, such as iOS and Android, but Gartner has not seen substantial uptake of BES on those platforms.
Citrix is a publicly traded company based in Santa Clara, California. Citrix entered the EMM space following the acquisition of Zenprise in January 2013. Zenprise added to Citrix’s mobile app management and mobile app technologies, as well as to Citrix ShareFile and Citrix NetScaler. In May 2014, Citrix announced Workspace Suite, which combines desktop virtualization and EMM to deliver access apps and content to any device through a combination of physical and virtual mechanisms. XenMobile is available via an on-premises option or through a SaaS model. XenMobile MDM supports iOS, Android, Windows Phone, BlackBerry (via BES) and Windows 8. Citrix MDX Toolkit supports iOS and Android.

One of Good’s priorities for the next 12 to 24 months is to further integrate these technologies. GFE MDM supports iOS and Android. Good Dynamics (a mobile application management module) supports iOS, Android and Windows Phone.
IBM acquired Fiberlink in December 2013 and has positioned MaaS360 as a major component of its enterprise mobility solutions. MaaS360 brought IBM a much-needed EMM cloud solution, as well as a new on-premises offering that had just been completed for more conservative buyers. MaaS360 MDM supports iOS, Android, Windows Phone, Windows 7/8 and Mac OS X. Its mobile application management module supports iOS, Android and Windows Phone. MaaS360 is housed under the same management group as other IBM endpoint management products, laying the ground for a broader management portfolio. MaaS360 is a good fit for organizations looking for a SaaS-based product and those who use IBM collaboration, productivity and security technologies.
Landesk EMM products Mobility Manager and Avalanche originate from the Landesk 2012 acquisition of Wavelink. The two products share the same code, but Mobility Manager has tight integration with Landesk Management Suite (LDMS), a strong client management tool. Avalanche is offered via an on-premises offering and a SaaS model. Both EMM products support iOS, Android, BlackBerry (via EAS), Windows Phone 8, Windows 7/8 and Mac OS X. Landesk offers user-based licensing that enables organizations to license Mobility Manager, LDMS, Landesk Security Suite and Landesk Service Manager with a single license. Landesk is still behind in the EMM market, and has not been getting significant uptake outside customers that use the broad set of Landesk products. Landesk recently acquired LetMobile, a secure mobile gateway vendor. Landesk also has been building a workspace aggregator, Landesk Fuse, which will provide a portal for users to obtain apps and content. Landesk is a good fit for organizations looking to combine strong client management (LDMS) and EMM.
MobileIron’s strategy is to provide an EMM offering that is agnostic to the applications and devices an organization uses. This differs from EMM vendors that combine a proprietary Secure PIM and EFSS product with their EMM tools. The company continues to innovate its EMM offering, and to seek and receive patents for its mobile technology. MobileIron is available via an on-premises offering and a SaaS model. The MDM product supports iOS, Android, Windows Phone, Windows 8 and Mac OS X. Its mobile application management module supports iOS and Android.
SAP Mobile Secure is a suite of products that includes Afaria (MDM), SAP Mobile App Protection by Mocana (for mobile application management) and SAP Mobile Documents (for mobile content management).

Mobile Secure benefits from SAP’s breadth of assets, including SAP Business Intelligence (BI) to deliver a unique administrator dashboard experience.
Sophos is a privately held company based in Oxford, U.K. Sophos Mobile Control (SMC) MDM supports iOS, Android, Windows Phone and BlackBerry (via BES). It is also the only vendor to feature a form of digital rights management (DRM) as a core component to its mobile content management application. Enterprises and small or midsize businesses (SMBs) looking for an easy-to-implement solution that combines desktop and mobile protection should look at Sophos’ Complete Security Suite, but should be aware that it is currently available only as an on-premises-based solution; however, SMC is available as a hosted offering.
Soti is a privately held company based in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada. Soti offers a strong, general-purpose EMM solution suitable for mainstream use cases, but has its roots in the ruggedized space, where it has been a dominant player for a number of years. MobiControl is delivered via an on-premises offering, as well as a SaaS model. MobiControl supports iOS, Android, Windows Phone, Windows 8 and Mac OS X. Its core differentiator lies in the MobiControl Android+ technology, which allows MobiControl to manage Android devices with a high degree of control and configuration management capability.
Tangoe is a publicly traded company based in Orange, Connecticut. Tangoe offers EMM as a stand-alone product or a companion product with its telecom expense management (TEM) and help desk outsourcing services. MatrixMobile is provided via a SaaS model or an on-premises offering. MxSecure provides MDM capabilities for iOS and Android, and integrates with BES for management of BlackBerry devices. It provides limited support for the Windows Phone platform. Its MxApp module provides mobile application management capabilities and Secure PIM through a partnership with Divide, and is included with MxSecure.
• Endpoint platforms have become similar, with smartphones and tablets becoming more powerful and PC platforms adopting mobile computing architectures. Windows 8 and Mac OS X are adding MDM capabilities that will increasingly determine the way platforms are secured and managed. The convergence of the mobile and PC architectures logically drives an IT organizational convergence.
These changes will have a major impact on the management tool vendor landscape. Because the buying center for EMM tools is shifting to the EUC group, successful EMM vendors will have credibility and mind share with this IT role. Vendors that already have this credibility and mind share have a distinct advantage. Vendors that do not will have to earn it or move into other markets, such as collaboration or mobile applications, or be acquired.

The web is all about social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Tumblr… But seven years ago, all these social media sites didn’t exist, portals like Yahoo and search engines like Google is where consumer got the information. So what happened? users took the control of the content. Or, to be more accurate: the market shifted to a click-based engagement model to a fan-based engagement model. Which means, clicks are no longer the premium currency for advisers, fans are: they want to be followed, to be shared, to be mentioned, even to be pined! Fan is the new click.
With the advent of user generated content and sharing features, social platforms are the new kings of the web. This being said, and I assume you already knew it, not every social platform are the same. Within the last seven years, we have been through three waves of social domination: The publishing wave (with blogs), the sharing wave (with Facebook and Twitter), and the curating wave (with Quora, Pinterest and alike). The main reason for this shift in users’ behavior is the amount of content: the more content, the more precious it is to find the value-added content, this is why we are currently in the curating wave.

Governments around the world have commandeered the Internet, as Bruce Schneier so succinctly points out in The Atlantic. How is that going to impact the IT security industry? This $60 billion industry researches, develops, and sells firewalls, anti-malware, authentication, encryption, and 80 other categories of products. With each advance in the threat levelrepresented by hackers, cyber criminals, and cyber spies there has been a new batch of vendors which come on the scene to counter threats that bypass previous technologies and spending has increased.
Spending on IT security is poised to grow tenfold in ten years. Every organization from the largest oil and gas refiner, to the smallest bank has underspent on security. Classic risk management methodologies call for trade-offs in security. Unlikely events, Black Swans, are not accounted for. This protect-against-the-known philosophy is what led to most defense contractors and even the Department of Defense being completely vulnerable to sophisticated targeted attacks from foreign spy agencies. The recent rapid growth of technology vendors to ward off cyber attacks is a blip compared to what is coming.
Even the most sophisticated Chinese cyber spies do not appear to be well funded. They use shelf ware and their teams work regular hours. The NSA on the other hand is shockingly replete with funds. The US Intelligence Community budget of $70 billion is twice the size of the Australian military budget. The NSA has donated $160 million to its sister agency, GCHQ, in the UK for intelligence gathering. The investment in creating Total Information Awareness over the last decade has stunned the industry.
There will be a response to this threat against all communications. That response will be hundreds of new IT security vendors cropping up all over the world. Thanks to a dramatic increase in distrust of US companies this boom in technology will not be centered on Silicon Valley. Just as the draconian anti-encryption measures of the ‘90s drove development offshore, major cloud providers will have to push their engineering and research into countries that are more open and considerate of privacy and transparency.
