SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Citrix today announced that it has been positioned as a Leader in the IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Enterprise Mobility Management Software 2014 Vendor Assessment (Doc #251379, September 2014). Citrix is recognized for the completeness of its core enterprise mobility management (EMM) offering, the XenMobile® solution, and the company’s strong strategic direction.
The IDC MarketScape report evaluated 11 EMM vendors based on a comprehensive framework that assessed current capabilities and future strategies. Citrix is positioned as a leader by the IDC MarketScape for possessing a combination of company and product capabilities that align with customer needs today and a strong set of strategic initiatives that align with what customers will require in the next three to five years.
XenMobile provides the most comprehensive EMM solution to manage and secure mobile apps, data and devices along with the broadest set of business-class productivity apps. Notably, XenMobile is recognized by the IDC MarketScape for offering advanced network security as well as feature-rich enterprise file sync and sharing capabilities through Citrix ShareFile® whereas “competitors still have work to do in this space,” according to the report.
XenMobile is also a cornerstone of the Citrix Workspace Suite™, the industry’s most complete mobile workspace solution, and according to Stacy Crook, Research Director, Mobile Enterprise Research, IDC, “Citrix’s ability to bring products together in a way where the collective utility of the suite is more powerful than any one product on its own is appealing to the company's customer base.”
