Report. The report details smartphone and tablet devices activated amongst
Good's enterprise customers, which include half of the FORTUNE 100™. The full
report, which can be viewed in PDF or Roambi Flow, provides a breakdown of
smartphone and tablet activations among Good's enterprise customers to uncover
notable changes and trends in device and mobile operating system preference
and usage within corporations[1].


This quarter's report showed a clear preference for iOS devices, which
accounted for 77 percent of all activations and captured eight of the top ten
spots on the most popular device list this quarter. While Android activations
dropped 6.3 percent as compared to Q4 2011, they still accounted for 22.7
percent of all activations for the quarter, which were primarily driven by
Android tablets. Windows Phone devices came in a distant third for the
quarter, capturing just 0.5 percent of overall activations.

"CIOs today are able to realize increased productivity by supporting a diverse
set of mobile products, while retaining security and control, and still
provide their employee consumers with product choice," said Christy Wyatt, CEO
and President, Good Technology. "We continue to see more enterprise customers
extending the accessibility of mobile applications to a broader employee
population within their organizations."

Additional report findings include:

  oiOS platform activations rose 8.5 percent year-over-year, growing from 71
    percent in Q4 of 2011 to 77 percent in Q4 2012.
  oThe iPhone 5 was the most popular device in Q4 of 2012, representing 32
    percent of all activations for the quarter.
  oAlthough the iPad continues to lead tablet activations with 93.2 percent,
    Android tablets are gaining momentum. Android jumped from 2.7 percent to
    6.8 percent of all tablet activations over the course of 2012.
  oWhen looking at types of devices activated, Android smartphones slightly
    outpaced iPads in October and finished the quarter only a fraction behind
    at 21 percent of all activations in Q4 2012.
  oThe most popular Android tablets amongst Good's enterprise customers
    included the Samsung Galaxy Tab, followed by the Motorola Droid Xyboard,
    Samsung Galaxy Note, Asus Transformer, Kindle Fire and Motorola Xoom.
  oThe Samsung Galaxy SIII was the most popular Android device, capturing six
    percent of total device activations for the quarter.
  oThe financial services industry led enterprise device activations during
    the quarter, followed by business and professional services. Together,
    these two industries made up more than half of the activations reported in
  oWholesale & retail, manufacturing and energy & utilities all moved up in
    the rankings for overall activations by sector, as well as iPad
    activations over last year.

As demonstrated by Good's most recent State of BYOD report, many of the
largest, most security-conscious and highly regulated companies are already
adopting BYOD, while the number of organizations that have no plans to support
BYOD is rapidly shrinking. Therefore, Good believes the number and types of
devices that corporations enable for use at work will grow as IT organizations
look to reduce costs and increase employee productivity by allowing employees
to use the mobile devices and applications they prefer in order to work
