Good Technology Positioned in Leaders Quadrant of Leading Analyst Firm's Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Wireless E-Mail
Sunnyvale, CA, — Jan 11, 2012 — Good Technology, the leading provider of secure and managed enterprise mobility for iPhone®, iPad™, Android™ and other leading smartphone platforms, today announced its positioning by Gartner as a Leader in its "Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Wireless Email Market" report 1. Good Technology is recognized for its ability to execute and completeness of vision.
The Gartner Magic Quadrant is a graphical representation of a marketplace at and for a specific time period. It depicts Gartner's analysis of how certain vendors measure against criteria for that marketplace, as defined by Gartner. According to Gartner's "Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Wireless Email Market" report, "vendors classified as Leaders have seen continuous growth in their installed bases of wireless email gateways and subscribers. They are the subjects of most inquiries from Gartner clients about wireless email product strategy and selection. Leaders have established positions in several areas of technology, and pursue innovation in areas related to wireless email product features and services. They are good at communicating the value of their offerings, have a wide geographical presence, and have extensive plans for sales and distribution. Comments from clients must point to a high degree of satisfaction with the level of support provided, and to operational excellence."
According to a recent customer survey conducted by Good Technology, 72 percent of respondents were already formally supporting "bring your own device" (BYOD) programs, with another 19 percent indicating that they were either planning to support within the next 6-12 months or were considering, but did not have a specific timeframe for support. The survey findings also indicate that large-to-very-large enterprises dominate the current BYOD landscape, with 81 percent of respondents having more than 2,000 employees, nearly 60 percent having more than 5,000 employees, and 35 percent having more than 10,000 employees. These large to very large organizations came mostly from the financial services and healthcare industries—two information-driven sectors that face complex regulatory, security, and compliance requirement that make data security is paramount.
"We are thrilled to be recognized by Gartner as a Leader in the Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Wireless E-Mail Market,"2 said John Herrema, Senior Vice President of Corporate Strategy, Good Technology. "Coupled with our placement in the 2011 in the Magic Quadrant for Mobile Device Management, Good Technology is recognized as a leader in both of these important enterprise mobility Magic Quadrants. Combined with our penetration of nearly half the Fortune 100, we believe this accomplishment affirms Good's unique ability to enable broad BYOD adoption by even the largest, most security conscious, and highly regulated enterprises. Only Good provides the true separation of personal and corporate data that allows enterprises to meet their security, data loss prevention and compliance requirements without affecting the productivity, personal user experience, or privacy of their employees."
