MDM Vendor AirWatch’s Momentum Builds in Early 2012
Mobile device management (MDM), mobile application management and mobile content management solutions provider AirWatch has seen big momentum in the first half of 2012 with mobile security software bookings increasing by more than 450 percent, the company has reported. Plus, the company has doubled its number of MDM customers in the last twelve months and increased its employee county by 200.
This and other numbers are part of a recent press release about the company's momentum. Because the company is privately held, it does not release information about revenues and profits. (You can take a look at our recent company profile of AirWatch here.) But here's a look at some of the other claims the company makes.
- In the United States, 7 of the top 10 retailers use this MDM vendor's offering.
- The company currently has 3,000 customers and about 700 global employees.
The company also released the following information on some of their global customer base:
