Wandera Named a Leader in the IDC MarketScape for Worldwide Mobile Threat Management Security Software 2017 Vendor Assessment

SAN FRANCISCO and LONDON (10th October, 2017) – Mobile security company Wandera today announced it has been positioned as a leader in the “IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Mobile Threat Management Security Software 2017 Vendor Assessment”. The report profiled nine vendors and Wandera was recognized as one of the few market leaders in the mobile security space.

Wandera’s unique gateway infrastructure was highlighted in the IDC MarketScape report, describing it as “among the few vendors in the MTM market with in-line, cloud-based mobile data traffic inspection and enforcement capabilities”.

The vendor stands out from other mobile security offerings through its unparalleled visibility and powerful in-line controls – capabilities the report outlines as a significant differentiator.

“Wandera’s content filtering capabilities and location-based filtering provide added strength, allowing for diverse app monitoring and filtering on a user area basis.”

It marks yet another key milestone for fast-growing Wandera, in a year that has also seen the company win SC Magazine’s Mobile Security Solution of the Year and the Mobile Security Award in the Computing Vendor Excellence Awards, as well as inclusion in the Gartner Market Guide for Mobile Threat Defense.

The mobile security market is gaining momentum, as enterprises recognize the need for dedicated threat management solutions. “We’re hearing more from organizations looking to extend security beyond EMM – a trend clearly recognized by IDC. That’s why we’ve been developing features that ensure these devices aren’t vulnerable to an increasingly sophisticated mobile threat landscape”, said Michael Covington, VP Product Strategy at Wandera.
