MISSISSAUGA, ON–(Marketwired – Sep 24, 2014) – SOTI Inc., the world’s leading provider of Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) andBring Your Own Device (BYOD) policy management, today announced that it was named a “Market Leader” in Ovum’s recent EMM Decision Matrix report entitled Selecting an Enterprise Mobility Management Solution, 2014-2015. According to Ovum, the Market Leader category represents the leading solutions that the global research and advisory firm believes are worthy of a place on technology selection shortlists.
The report singled out SOTI for its strong cross-platform support and deep vertical expertise. SOTI scored especially high in key areas such as ease of deployment, mobile application and device management, as well as sales channel and partner ecosystem strength.
“The demand for cross-platform mobile management has created a fast growing and extremely competitive market for EMM solutions,” said Richard Absalom, Senior Analyst, Enterprise Mobility at Ovum. “We are tracking over 70 vendors in the space. SOTI has carved out a position for itself as one of the most long-standing EMM specialists, providing strong core features around the main components that we identify as being part of a complete EMM solution.”
The report also noted that SOTI’s Android management is a key differentiator among all providers. To that end, SOTI recently announced that more than 50 mobile device manufacturers are using its MobiControl Android+ technology for advanced EMM on their Android devices. This enables OEMs to provide enterprise customers with a consistent level of management and security across the wide spectrum of Android versions that businesses depend on for their mobile operations and BYOD initiatives.
“As global businesses establish and scale their mobility strategies, they can rely on our solution to manage smartphones, tablets and purpose-built mobile devices in addition to PCs, laptops and peripherals, from a single pane of glass, no matter the operating system,” said Carl Rodrigues, CEO of SOTI. “Mobility is one of the most exciting and promising technologies for the enterprise today. Ovum’s placement of SOTI as a Market Leader is recognition of the strategic value that we deliver in allowing enterprises to realize the business benefits and efficiencies of mobility.”
