Visage and Fixmo Form Strategic Partnership
Product Integration Will Provide First “Full Circle” BYOD Mobility Management & Security Solution
Fixmo, the mobile risk management company, and Visage, the leader in enterprise mobility management, today announced their strategic partnership to deliver the first fully integrated solution for enterprise mobility intelligence, data security and risk management for BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) deployments.
The pairing will leverage each companies core products to offer the first mobility management solution to integrate expense, policy, risk, security and application management in one place. The two companies will co-market the new offering and will leverage their established channel partner communities for distribution into public and private sector.
Visage aggregates and organizes users, mobile inventory and carrier data to provide complete visibility into and governance over enterprise mobility programs. Fixmo specializes in mobile risk management (MRM) and corporate data security, helping organizations identify, mitigate and manage the risks associated with mobile devices and BYOD in the workplace.
“As employee-owned devices continue to invade the enterprise, the ability to understand the security and financial risks exposed by each user, device and application becomes increasingly important,” said Chris Hazelton, Research Director for Mobile & Wireless at 451 Research. “Companies are looking for tools that not only help them manage mobile devices and users, but can help to ensure they remain in compliance with corporate security, expense and acceptable-use policies across company-owned and BYOD deployments.”
“Fixmo’s mobile security and risk management solutions combined with Visage’s mobility intelligence will provide a deep and rich 360º BYOD solution — giving IT organizations unprecedented insight into the security, financial and compliance risks that mobile devices and BYOD can introduce,” said Rick Segal, CEO & Founder, Fixmo.
“Our partnership with Fixmo continues our strategy of integrating Visage’s MobilityCentral with other powerful mobility SaaS applications to provide enterprises with the largest and most functional set of mobility data,” said Bzur Haun, President and CEO of Visage. “The better and more accessible the mobility data, the better organizations can proactively manage cost, risk and policy, improve productivity and deploy mobility strategically – be it for company or employee owned devices.”
Visage brings the power of data to solving the pressing and strategic challenges companies face in managing their mobility.
