Smith Micro Recognized by Aragon Research in Emerging Enterprise Mobile Management Software Market
ALISO VIEJO, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Micro Software, Inc. (NASDAQ:
SMSI), a leading provider of wireless and mobility management
solutions, has been recognized as a Specialist in the 2013 Aragon
Research Globe for Enterprise Mobile Management (EMM) Software. EMM is
focused on managing the increasing array of mobile devices, wireless
networks and related services to enable the broad use of mobile
computing in a business context. Smith Micro (News - Alert) was recognized for its
standards-based approach to EMM and scalable platform, which combines
device connectivity, user management and network optimization.
"EMM is an emerging, holistic approach to managing mobile devices that
incorporates and transcends mobile device management (MDM), mobile app
management and other software for managing mobile assets," said Mike
Anderson, President and Co-founder, Aragon
Research Inc. "One thing vendors must do is to recognize the
expansion into EMM, and shift their focus from MDM price to overall
mobile management to align with the requirements on enterprise short
lists. The companies we discuss in our Aragon Research Globe are forward
thinkers when it comes to helping the ecosystem with the new best
practices approach found in today's complex enterprise environments."
Smith Micro's EMM solution leverages the company's strong heritage
supporting mobile carriers and device manufacturers with an Open Mobile (News - Alert)
Alliance (OMA) standards-based device management platform, which is now
available to large enterprises in need of a scalable solution. The
company's EMM platform includes a client-server-portal application that
enables companies, especially those with BYOD (Bring Your Own Device)
policies, to empower their mobile workforces from one central console.
Utilizing carrier- and device-agnostic controls, Smith Micro allows IT
organizations to manage mobile workers, devices, applications and
network connections. The platform enables seamless, secure connectivity
between devices and wireless networks, prioritizes access points, and
enforces policies to optimize network utilization. The platform is also
highly customizable using APIs that can be integrated into other
"Mobile device management has received plenty of attention in the past
year, as BYOD policies have gained traction within organizations.
However, MDM is just one part of a total mobility strategy -
connectivity, security and network optimization cannot be overlooked,"
said Doug Louie, Senior Director Product Marketing at Smith Micro. "Our
EMM solution leverages many years of experience serving Tier One
wireless operators, which requires a highly-scalable, standards-based
design that simplifies mobility and reduces customer support costs.
We're honored to be included in the first annual Aragon Research Globe
report, and look forward to helping our enterprise customers truly
transform their operations through EMM."
