Based on its recent analysis of the mobile Virtual Private Network VPN products market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes NetMotion Wireless with the 2011 Global Frost & Sullivan Market Share Leadership Award for capturing the highest market share in a fiercely competitive market. NetMotion Wireless led the competition in 2010 with nearly $25 million in revenue. Its early penetration in the market and strategic relationships with key wireless carriers has allowed it to achieve a leadership position.
"While a mobile VPN solution that can combine productivity and security features into a single package is highly desired by customers, Frost & Sullivan also believes that a best-in-class product needs to offer seamless connectivity to a broad range of mobile platforms," said Frost & Sullivan Industry Analyst, Martha Gomez Vazquez. "NetMotion Wireless Mobility XE software offers more extensive features than its competitors, especially with its Policy, Network Access Control (NAC), and Analytics modules. The company's leadership in distribution, product and technology advancements has elevated it to the top position in today's market."
The NetMotion Wireless mobile VPN product suite provides opulent end-user benefits. A software-based mobile VPN, Mobility XE is available on mobile and wireless devices that are working across wired or wireless IP-based networks. The Mobility XE 9.0 includes features such as user-transparency, security, two-factor authentication, device authentication, advanced encryption standard (AES) encryption, NAC, and device quarantine for lost devices. Mobility XE also includes forward error correction for real-time applications such as VoIP or streaming video.
In addition, Mobility XE maximizes enterprise mobile workers' productivity by maintaining, securing and optimizing mobile data connections as they move in and out of wireless coverage areas and roam between networks. Roaming and off-loading to and from WiFi networks allows NetMotion users to fully utilize mobile broadband networks. It resolves challenging mobile deployment issues, including coverage gaps and interruptions, inter-network roaming, performance issues, and network security.
"The Mobility XE permits an 'always on' approach for mobile workers to access applications wirelessly with zero interruption while the Policy, Analytics and management tools help organizations implement efficient productivity metrics for mobile workers and allow them to manage networks and service they don't own yet depend upon for their business," said Martha Gomez Vazquez. "The company has experienced substantial increases in business due to referrals from satisfied customers."
NetMotion Wireless started with the public safety and healthcare markets and has expanded to other vertical markets, such as transportation, insurance, telecommunications, manufacturing and utilities. It sells products through channels and partners, relying heavily on wireless carriers including AT&T, Verizon and Sprint for direct leads and sales. These types of partnerships have worked strategically for the company. In 2011, NetMotion Wireless plans to continue to expand its product offering, introduce Locality (mobile broadband network performance management software) into its product portfolio in North America, and continue broadening its portfolio, targeting specific verticals and the European market.
For capturing the market through mobile VPN solutions that combines features such as mobile Network Access Control (NAC) and a comprehensive management console with detailed reporting capabilities, NetMotion Wireless is the recipient of the 2011 Global Frost & Sullivan Market Share Leadership Award in the mobile VPN products market. Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the company that has demonstrated excellence in capturing the highest market share within its industry.
