Meteoric rise of Android, iPhone in enterprise - penetrating 43% of Good Technology deployments
REDWOOD SHORES, Calif., Aug. 5, 2010 -- Good Technology, the leading provider of secure and managed enterprise mobility for iPhone, iPad, Android and other leading smartphone platforms, today released internal metrics about the changing landscape of IT and mobile enterprise technology. The trend of personal smartphones infiltrating the workplace is being led by new Android™ devices along with Apple's iPhone®, iPad®, and iPod touch devices based on its iOS™ platform. Good Technology is driving the overall paradigm shift of personal phones doubling as work phones, which is spurring substantial growth for the company. In the first half of 2010, over 1,500 enterprises have deployed Good for Enterprise to secure and manage these popular new devices and enable them for access to business applications and data. iOS and Android devices have already penetrated 43% of all of Good's deployments, and nearly one-fifth of its enterprise customers are using Good for Enterprise to secure and manage three or more device platforms.
"It's an exciting time in the industry," said John Herrema, chief marketing officer of Good Technology. "More than ever, consumers are strongly influencing IT decision makers based on their personal mobility choices. Devices like the iPhone and the many Android phones now available are highly capable in both business and personal spheres and IT's need for a cross-platform solution for mobility security and management is greater than ever."
"The days of the enterprise relying solely on company-provided devices to mobilize its workforce are waning," said Dimitri Volkmann, vice president of product management for Good Technology. "With so many powerful smartphone options consumers, the need to carry two phones—one for work and one for personal use—just isn't there. With Good for Enterprise, IT now has a solution to the 'device dilemma' that combines device choice with the great user experience that end users demand as well as the enterprise-grade security, management and control that IT requires."

"Overwhelmingly, they are choosing the iPhone and Android smartphones. Good gives us the enterprise-class security and management we require to support these devices across our global, dynamic work environment."
"As a global pharmaceutical company, mobility is an important component of our overall business strategy," said Michael Doyle, Senior Director of Global Messaging Services for Sanofi-Aventis.
