MobileIron (NASDAQ:MOBL), the mobile-centric security platform for the Everywhere Enterprise, today announced that it has been ranked as a Leader in The Forrester Wave™: Zero Trust eXtended Ecosystem Platform Providers, Q3 2020 report. MobileIron earned the highest possible scores in the workload security, people/workforce security, APIs, ZTX roadmap and differentiation, and ZTX advocacy criteria.
The report stated, “MobileIron is the one vendor in the Zero Trust space that is focused on applying Zero Trust and ZTX concepts to enterprise users’ mobile devices. This has never been more necessary than in the full-on remote world that is the result of the COVID-19 pandemic. In early 2020, MobileIron purchased a mobile app automation software company named Incapptic Connect. This was a boon to its Zero Trust capabilities as it helps enterprise customers accelerate mobile app releases with more built-in security functionality.”
Forrester evaluated select vendors based on a comprehensive set of 19 evaluation criteria in the categories of current offering, strategy and market presence. According to the report, “MobileIron is a leader in the #killthepassword space and has successfully deployed passwordless capabilities to select customers in a variety of enterprises.”

We look forward to continuing to help our customers secure their digital workplaces as they adapt to the future of work, in which employees, IT infrastructures and customers are everywhere – and mobile devices provide access to everything.”
