NEW YORK, Jan. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Dimension Data, the $5.8 billion

The global availability of the solution has already been welcomed by a number
of Dimension Data's clients in South Africa and Europe who have cited the
growing need for solutions to manage corporate and employee-owned mobile
devices, protect corporate data, distribute enterprise applications, and
secure mobile access to corporate documents.
Matthew Gyde, Dimension Data's Group General Manager for Security Solutions
said, "Dimension Data's Enterprise Mobility Framework offers a 360-degree view
of all the considerations for and areas affected by the move to mobility.
Security remains one of the most critical concerns and, if not effectively
managed, creates the biggest area of corporate risk. Given the multi-geography
nature of Dimension Data and our clients, we needed a partner with a powerful
technology platform that we could work with across all regions.
"What further sets AirWatch apart is its advanced API framework that allows
for close integration with Dimension Data's telecom expense management
offering, Xigo Enterprise, to deliver even greater value to our clients."
"We recognized Dimension Data as a significant provider of security services
to the market today," said John Marshall, president and CEO, AirWatch. "This,
combined with their focus on providing clients with end-to-end mobility
services around the world, makes the partnership a natural fit. Our ability to
jointly address the needs of our respective clients represents a major
opportunity for us."
To showcase the partnership and Dimension Data's extended enterprise mobility
capabilities, the company will participate in AirWatch Connect 2013, the
leading user conference for enterprise mobility. AirWatch Connect 2013 takes
place February 25-28, 2013 at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain.
