MDM Debate: MobileIron Vs. Good TechnologyAlmost every enterprise IT organization is evaluating mobile device management options. We pit two industry leaders--MobileIron and Good Technology--against each other in a video debate.
Mobile device management (MDM) technology is at the center of this difficult equation, but the solutions (and there are many) offer different approaches. Some create a cocoon around all communications, some focus on protecting just the applications rather than the device, and still others claim to be focused solely on the data. Some sandbox certain apps but not others, while some create virtual machines in which to run personal or business-oriented apps.
And the nuances go on and on. (For a thorough analysis, including an in-depth look at some of the players in this space, download our mobile device management buyer's guide.) We recently challenged two of the industry leaders to go head-to-head in a debate about their approaches. Good Technology has been around for quite some time--before MDM was such a hot topic. It has won support from some of the top government agencies. MobileIron is a relative newcomer, but the company has become an overnight sensation. Watch the debate in the video below.
