Mobile Security Management Market to Reach $560M

Using mobile devices -- such as smartphones and tablets -- in the workplace creates new data protection challenges for the IT manager. As a result, the Mobile Security Management (MSM) market is emerging as a strong, fledgling sub-market of Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM).

As Mobile Device Management (MDM) evolves into application and content management, the core driver for this evolution is the demand for greater security around corporate assets -- wherever they may reside and regardless of format.

Concerns for data leak prevention, access control, compliance reporting, and monitoring are pushing EMM providers to increasingly provide more security-based mobility features to their existing solutions, according to the latest market study by ABI Research.

The increasing demand for security is enabling vendors to differentiate their offerings and stand out from the competition. But the window for MSM is short -- security will become a basic requirement for all EMM solutions and successful differentiation will demand a long-term sustainable strategy.

This could be through a number of different channels; either mergers and strategic acquisitions, or investment into other EMM submarkets, such as mobile network and identity management.

ABI Research estimates the current global MSM market to total $560 million by the end of 2013.

"While MDM will continue to provide the largest share of revenues, growth rates from other sectors, and, in particular, security and content management, will increasingly account for a much larger portion of the market,” says Michela Menting, senior analyst at ABI Research.

The market will offer significant opportunities for vendors in the EMM value chain, including pure-play mobility management vendors, original equipment manufacturers, technology companies, mobile network operators, and Internet security software developers.

Why Healthcare and Smart City Apps Drive 5G IoT

Fifth-generation (5G) wireless technology for cellular networks is a successor to fourth-generation (4G) wireless technology. By 2023, Juniper Research anticipates that there will be over 1 billion 5G connections globally. The technology will provide the data infrastructure for the advancement of wireless communications and for new developments in the Internet of Things (IoT) -- including smart cities and healthcare. 5G IoT Market Development According to the latest worldwide market study by Juniper Research, 5G IoT connections will reach 116 million globally by 2026 -- that's increasing from just 17 million connections in 2023. Juniper analysts predict that the healthcare sector applications and government or other smart city services will drive this outstanding 1,100 percent growth over the next three years. Juniper examined 5G adoption across key industry sectors -- such as the automotive, mobile broadband, and smart homes -- and forecasts healthcare and smart cities will accoun

Embedded SIMs Evolve Mobile Subscriber Identity

The GSM Association introduced the development of a new type of Subscriber Identity Module (SIM) which is directly soldered into a mobile device. This eSIM (embedded SIM) could then be programmed to connect to a chosen mobile service provider's network profile via a process known as Remote SIM Provisioning (RSP). According to the latest worldwide market study by Juniper Research, the value of the global eSIM market will increase from $4.7 billion in 2023 to $16.3 billion by 2027. eSIM Technology Market Development Increasing by an impressive 249 percent, the market growth will be driven by the adoption of eSIM-enabled mobile devices, as seen in Apple’s recent release of the eSIM-only iPhone 14 smartphone -- driving accelerated mobile network operator support. eSIMs are embedded within mobile devices, enabling devices and sensors to seamlessly switch between mobile network operator profiles. Juniper analysts predict that Apple will expand the deployment of eSIM-only devices to Europ
