Smith Micro Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: SMSI), a leading provider of wireless and
mobility management solutions, has been recognized as a Specialist in the 2013
Aragon Research Globe for Enterprise Mobile Management (EMM) Software. EMM is
focused on managing the increasing array of mobile devices, wireless networks
and related services to enable the broad use of mobile computing in a business
context. Smith Micro was recognized for its standards-based approach to EMM
and scalable platform, which combines device connectivity, user management and
network optimization.

“EMM is an emerging, holistic approach to managing mobile devices that
incorporates and transcends mobile device management (MDM), mobile app
management and other software for managing mobile assets,” said Mike Anderson,
President and Co-founder, Aragon Research Inc. “One thing vendors must do is
to recognize the expansion into EMM, and shift their focus from MDM price to
overall mobile management to align with the requirements on enterprise short
lists. The companies we discuss in our Aragon Research Globe are forward
thinkers when it comes to helping the ecosystem with the new best practices
approach found in today’s complex enterprise environments.”

Smith Micro’s EMM solution leverages the company’s strong heritage supporting
mobile carriers and device manufacturers with an Open Mobile Alliance (OMA)
standards-based device management platform, which is now available to large
enterprises in need of a scalable solution. The company’s EMM platform
includes a client-server-portal application that enables companies, especially
those with BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) policies, to empower their mobile
workforces from one central console. Utilizing carrier- and device-agnostic
controls, Smith Micro allows IT organizations to manage mobile workers,
devices, applications and network connections. The platform enables seamless,
secure connectivity between devices and wireless networks, prioritizes access
points, and enforces policies to optimize network utilization. The platform is
also highly customizable using APIs that can be integrated into other mobility

“Mobile device management has received plenty of attention in the past year,
as BYOD policies have gained traction within organizations. However, MDM is
just one part of a total mobility strategy – connectivity, security and
network optimization cannot be overlooked,” said Doug Louie, Senior Director
Product Marketing at Smith Micro. “Our EMM solution leverages many years of
experience serving Tier One wireless operators, which requires a
highly-scalable, standards-based design that simplifies mobility and reduces
customer support costs. We’re honored to be included in the first annual
Aragon Research Globe report, and look forward to helping our enterprise
customers truly transform their operations through EMM.”
