Citrix Gartner Magic Quadrant

In today’s technology market, companies are constantly touting the unique and vast benefits of their products, and often times, the consumer is left scratching their heads about who actually has a superior solution. Gartner, as the world’s leading information technology research and advisory company, is a guiding light in the technology space and has provided sound insight for more than 30 years.

And considering this, we here at Citrix are excited to announce that Citrix is positioned in the leaders quadrant of the 2013 Magic Quadrant for Mobile Device Management (MDM) Software report as a result of its assessment of Citrix XenMobileGartner’s Magic Quadrants are a culmination of research in a specific market – in this case MDM software – that gives consumers a wide-angle view of the relative positions of the market’s competitors.  Simply put, they map out the competing players in the major technology markets and identify how they are positioned to help potential customers.

In addition, Citrix XenMobile received the highest score of “Outstanding” for overall use case in the Critical Capabilities for Mobile Device Management Software report.  The critical capabilities for MDM takes a deep look at the top technology in MDM for policy compliance, mobile security management, mobile software management, mobile content management, analytics, and delivery styles.

With Federal policies, such as the Digital Government Strategy and Federal Bring Your Own Device Toolkit driving the mobility agenda, agencies are looking for solutions that can enable them to meet the growing demand for mobile.  And, we knew when we released XenMobile Enterprise Edition, a comprehensive solution that gives users mobile device, app, and data freedom while also enabling IT to meet its management and compliance requirements, that it would be a big hit across all markets, including public sector.  We believe this recent recognition affirms that not only are Citrix offerings helping agencies meet their mobility goals, but more so that we provide an end-to-end MDM solution that other vendors cannot.

We are honored to be recognized by Gartner in these reports and hope you take a moment to review the full 2013 Gartner MDM Magic Quadrant and Critical Capabilities for MDM reports.  For more information about XenMobile Enterprise Edition, click here, or drop me a line.
