ESET’s mobile security management solutions were evaluated in this report which explores the market for such solutions due to their growing importance in securing hybrid and mobile-first work styles.
Omdia conducts independent market research to gain a holistic view of technology ecosystems and offers this report to help enterprises, vendors and service providers understand how mobility affects the workplace.
ESET says this is the first time it has been included in Omdia research and is one of only seven vendors featured in the report.
With the pandemic acting as a catalyst for a significant increase in remote and hybrid working, mobile device security must be a priority for businesses, the company said. The Omdia report highlights that those vendors supporting the mobile security needs of enterprises will be increasingly important to businesses’ security strategies, while the mobile security management landscape itself is set to expand.
ESET Australia country manager Kelly Johnson says ESET being named as a Challenger in the mobile security sector reflects the company’s growth in the mobile sector and the strength of its offerings.
“Mobile devices already represented a growing challenge for businesses before the unprecedented changes in the work environment caused by the pandemic. Businesses have had to adapt rapidly and we’re proud that we’ve been able to provide our cutting-edge technology and expert insight as they adopt new ways of working.
"ESET has industry-leading solutions in mobile security, and it is an expanding market for us both globally and in Australia.”
ESET says its mobile security management solutions support businesses in preventing, detecting, and remediating security threats targeted at the mobile workforce.
This report evaluated both the standalone ESET Endpoint Security for Android and the mobile device management capabilities in ESET PROTECT Enterprise, especially its ease of use via a single pane of glass.
ESET says the report recognises its strong capabilities in supporting mobile security management across both Android and iOS, and highlights ESET’s threat intelligence services and the use of machine learning in its security solutions.
