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.

Artificial Intelligence Growth at an Inflection Point

Business technology investment no longer follows a predictable path to growth. The global venture capital (VC) investment in artificial intelligence (AI) was close to its peak in 2021 reaching $22.3 billion, according to the latest worldwide market study by ABI Research.

How a Digital-First CEO Leads Transformation

Some leaders reject the notion that "wait and see" is the best response to disruptive change. Savvy senior executives are already driving digital business transformation throughout their organization in an effort to gain a bold strategic advantage. According to the latest market study by International Data Corp (IDC), Digital-First CEOs plan to drive at least half of their income from digital business products, services, and experiences by 2027 -- that's ahead of the market average of 39 percent. Driven by their response to the COVID-19 pandemic, these business leaders have changed how they think about the relationship between business and technology, and how they approach the next digital transformation era -- from scaling digital technology to guiding a viable digital business.
