Enterprise Mobility is the top technology trend out in IT
today. And because of that, it should be of no real shock to anyone that every
enterprise has or will be working on deploying a mobile strategy in 2014. A
granular mobility plan allows enterprises to leverage a foundation in order to establish
policies to the benefit of your enterprise and their mobile solutions. While
the enterprise mobility trend is not new in the year 2014, it is the trend that
has grown and expanded in the last 2 years to where is it a serious topic of
conversation when you hear, Citrix XenMobile!
There is no true defined pattern of need when it comes to
the Citrix Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) Solution, as the needs of each
customer and their IT landscape is unique and different, but the one constant
is the need for a rock solid mobility solution. And that is what Citrix XenMobile
can offer, anyone, anywhere, and at any time.
Today, Citrix customers are managing twice as many devices
across an array of platforms, while iOS remains number one with a bullet. In
just one year, mobile device enrollment has increased 135%. With that margin, other
OS platforms saw a similar increase in device enrollment. With various mobile
platforms, many enterprises are now adopting mobility faster than ever before,
even though those enterprises are still developing a deployment solution to
meet the growing trend and use of mobility.
In the last 2 years, the number of device based policies
decreased. The 6 most currently employed and enforced policies are as follows:
Passcode, GPS, Restrict and Device Resources/Applications, Wi-Fi, VPN, and
Two-Factor Authentication. The change in policies over the last 2 years are a
solid indicator of the change to enterprise thinking and development of
mobility requirements and solutions. The priority has shifted from once needing
to control and managing devices to now being able to manage and enforcing
application level policies to offer a better mobile experience without
compromising the security of data.
The continued growth and trend is reflective of the
continued growth of applications being created for the mobile user community
today. These specific trends identified from Citrix XenMobile Cloud deployments
effectively and show the transition to an enterprise mobile solution to meet
the demand and need of IT’s mobile needs. Enterprise IT is now focused on being
an enabler for user productivity by being less restrictive by enforcing
security without compromising the end user mobile experience, which should be
the goal of IT in the year 2014.
