Customers choose MobileIron as the foundation for their mobile initiatives
because of MobileIron's track record of innovation, product delivery, and
customer success. The largest global companies depend on MobileIron, including
7 of the 10 top pharmaceutical companies, 5 of the 10 top banks, 8 of the 10
top automotive manufacturers, 3 of the 5 top retailers, 4 of the 5 top
aerospace and defense companies, and half of the 10 top law firms.

Enterprises around the world are embracing multi-OS mobility. In the
"Worldwide Business Use Smartphone 2012-2016 Forecast Update" published in
November, analyst firm IDC forecasted that by 2016, worldwide shipments of
smartphones will reach 480 million, with 65% being used in Bring Your Own
Device (BYOD) environments. As a result, mobile is becoming a primary
computing platform, and it changes the very nature of how companies do their
work and win business. Enterprises now need to secure mobile apps and
content–not just devices and email.

MobileIron leads the disruption of the already disruptive mobile market. The
company's 2012 success was the direct result of shipping innovations in mobile
app security, mobile content management, and scale. In Q4, MobileIron
reinforced its product leadership by launching the first Enterprise Persona
for both iOS and Android. The Enterprise Persona delivers enterprise-grade
security for enterprise apps and content while retaining the convenience and
ease of use of the native experience on a mobile device – regardless of
whether it is owned by the organization or the employee. The components
include:

  oMobileIron AppConnect application wrapper and SDK, which secure enterprise
    apps and data-at-rest in micro-containers while preserving the native user
    experience
  oMobileIron App Delivery Network, which delivers large applications
    seamlessly to users around the world
  oMobileIron AppTunnel, which secures each application's data-in-motion
  oDocs@Work, the industry's only mobile data loss prevention (DLP) solution
    for iOS email attachments, which prevents corporate email attachments from
    being uploaded to consumer services such as Dropbox

Only MobileIron has integrated security across email DLP, certificate-based
identity, app and document containerization, BYOD privacy protection, and
automated closed-loop compliance. These features are especially appealing to
the Financial Services industry, which until now has had to rely on
containerization solutions that impede productivity by compromising the
end-user experience.

Other 2012 company highlights:

  oExpanded global operations with over 300 resellers and many of the largest
    mobile operators including AT&T, Deutsche Telekom, SingTel, and Vodafone
  oExpanded global customer base: 40% of business was outside North America
  oCompleted SOC-2 Type 1 certification for MobileIron's leading Connected
    Cloud platform
  oAchieved a 97% customer support satisfaction rate

"Many of our more than 4,000 global customers are on their way to becoming
'Mobile First' organizations," said Bob Tinker, CEO, MobileIron. "In 2012 we
saw our customers dramatically expand their mobile deployments to move beyond
the device and to focus on delivering apps and content. They chose MobileIron
because they know that we are the only vendor that can provide the technology,
best practices, training, and support to make their mobile initiatives
successful."
