The UK is set to be a leader in the burgeoning mobile device management (MDM) market in coming years, with expected growth from $55.56 million in 2013 to $219 million by 2019.
A report from MicroMarket Monitor claims that the UK will see some of the biggest growth in a global market that will almost quadruple between 2013 and 2019 from $1.032 billion to $4.008 billion.
"Countries such as Germany, Spain, and the U.K. have the highest adoption rate of MDM solution," the report comments.
The research consultancy attributed this upcoming growth in the UK market to its booming mobile market.
"Consumerisation of IT is one of the factors driving the U.K. market. In U.K., employees are increasingly using mobile devices for work purposes," the report adds. "High consumption of IT and the easy availability of mobile devices have created this trend of using IT for work and personal purposes. The employees can easily access corporate data on any devices, which raises the security concerns, thereby creating a need for MDM solutions. These solutions mitigate the security issues for the organisation, thereby preventing loss of any data."
Meanwhile, the global adoption would be driven by an increase in "usage of mobile devices for corporate work."
"In the past decades, there has been an incredible growth in the number of mobile users across the globe. The number of employees bringing their own mobile devices such as Smartphones and Tablets to organisation has also increased. This has made the work flexible as employees from anywhere can now access the business information from their mobile devices."
"But, the usage of such mobile devices poses a threat to corporate data. It is therefore essential for the software companies to provide employees with a secured access to corporate data through one’s mobile devices, and also prevents the misuse."
