  • And what percentage

    of enterprise mobile device management does Good Technology represent?
    For example are those iOS activations: 72% of 50%? 72% of 25%?

  • Good point (no pun intended)

    Also, these 3rd party MDM numbers--beyond marketshare for a given solution--are already suspect for one simple reason: Windows-based tablets (and Win Phones to a lesser extent) don't need a 3rd-party solution in the first place. They can be managed by Microsoft tools such as System Center or Intune and tie into AD, EAS, etc.
