MDM products will focus on two major trends in 2013 and beyond: security and mobile enablement. Security trends will include application-based VPN; data containerization; and network access control (NAC), while mobile enablement will focus on enterprise file synchronization and sharing (EFSS); app catalog; application provisioning and support; and application virtualization.
Note that Gartner excludes multitenant remote monitoring and management platforms (RMM) used by managed service providers (MSPs) that also support MDM such as Level Platforms, N-able [just acquired by SolarWinds (SWI], Kaseya, LabTech and Continuum, among others. Also missing: MDM specialist Amtel. Every MDM product in the market falls under one of the following main categories: software management, network service management, hardware management, or security management.
