Western European Enterprise Mobility Management and Security Market Set for Rapid Growth as Convergence With Cloud Accelerates, Says IDC
LONDON, August 11, 2011 — The Western European market for enterprise mobility management and security will reach $763 million in 2015 and grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 30% between 2010 and 2015, according to a new study by International Data Corporation (IDC).
“Enterprise mobility is becoming mission-critical, but implementing security, policy, and compliance across a diverse set of devices, networks, and applications remains a hurdle,” said study author Nicholas McQuire, EMEA research director, Mobile Enterprise Strategies. “The consumerization of IT, the acceleration of mobile enterprise applications, and cloud computing are driving a greater convergence of management and security requirements that operate across the device, network, and application layers of enterprise mobility. These domains, all very dynamic but fragmented today, are increasingly converging, which is good news as customers are decreasingly thinking of them as islands given their need for holistic approaches to mobile risk management.”
The study highlights that European firms, currently rationalizing public/private cloud strategies, are starting to turn to SaaS-based mobile device management and security primarily due to the speed-to-market benefits that SaaS programs deliver.
“Customers rationalizing mobility requirements today often don’t have the time, resource, or business case to pilot, evaluate, install, and configure capex-based on-premises solutions, so they are turning to the cloud, both public and private, as an alternative to be up and running in hours as opposed to days,” said McQuire.
The study shows that cloud-based enterprise mobility management and security will grow to reach over 30% of the on-premises mobile device management and security markets by 2015, as vendor multitenant solutions mature and channel providers, offering best-of-breed, gain the confidence of businesses, most notably SMEs.
The study, Western European Enterprise Mobility Management and Security Market Forecast and Analysis, 2010–2015 (IDC #LM01T, August 2011), examines the Western European market for enterprise mobility management and security from 2010 to 2015.
