Solutions Review: 6 Mobility Management Vendors to Watch in 2021

Solutions Review’s Mobility Management Vendors to Watch is an annual listing of solution providers we believe are worth monitoring. Companies are commonly included if they demonstrate a product roadmap aligning with our meta-analysis of the marketplace.

Mobility management tools continuously observe all enterprise mobile devices and allow an administrator to deliver security mandates from a single management console. These products not only ensure that all mobile devices are functioning properly, but also that they protect your organization from mobile-related security incidents. What makes mobility management even more important is the value it holds for the future of your enterprise. Computers are only becoming smaller; laptops and IoT devices are considered mobile devices to most of the top vendors, not just smartphones.
