Enterprise Mobility Management – Citrix XenMobile MDM


Citrix Systems have signalled their intention to become market leaders in the space of enterprise mobility management (EMM) with the recent purchase of Zenprise, who are in the Leaders Quadrant in the 2012 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Mobile Device Management Software (MDM).

Citrix has rebadged the Zenprise product and incorporated existing key Citrix products from XenMobile MDM and the Citrix Mobile Solution Bundle. The bundle includes XenMobile MDM and Cloud Gateway.

As we are now well aware, mobility has become a major priority for organisations. The drivers for mobility may be unique from one organisation to another; however one result is the same, that being the challenge it presents to IT.

The concept and introduction of mobility has resulted in an increase in employees demands to access the apps and data they rely on to perform their job from any location, on any device, including their own personal mobile devices. For IT, allowing users to access all of their apps and data from untrusted devices raises significant security and compliance concerns.
