Smartphone management and security options to expand as mobile virtualization activations set to reach over 8 million by 2018: ABI Research

21st September 2013 | By Mouseworld Now Correspondent |

New Delhi, India, September 21, 2013: ABI Research predicts the number of type-1 or type-2 smartphone virtualization activations will grow 20 fold by 2018, exceeding 8 million devices. Worldwide, activation rates will exceed 114% YoY with North America and Western Europe seeing the greatest number of smartphone activations. The Asia-Pacific region will see the largest growth increasing nearly 50 fold by 2018, or 165% CAGR growth YoY.

Senior analyst Jason McNicol, said, “The mobility management space continues to amaze as it seems new enterprise mobility solutions emerge daily. The latest solution now involves virtualization, where a type-1 or type-2 hypervisor is used to create two distinct profiles on the user mobile device, work and personal. This kind of virtualization solution provides IT complete control over the enterprise workspace while the personal side remains private.”

There have been three providers that have been the most aggressive with virtualization solutions: VMware, Citrix and Red Bend. VMware expanded its smartphone hypervisor offering most recently with Horizon Workspace 1.5, but appreciable shipment volumes will not occur until 2014 on Android devices.

When examining possible MDM solutions, concerns of security, scalability and cost arise. Often times, the most secure options are the most costly and hence less scalable.

McNicol continued, Type-1 and type-2 virtualization solutions have been around for years in the PC/Laptop and server markets. However, only recent technology advancements have permitted the use of virtualization in mobile devices. As this technology gains acceptance over the next few years, enterprises will have yet another workspace management tool available to them for managing devices in a BYOD world.

These findings are part of ABI Research Enterprise Mobile Devices Research Service, which includes Research Reports, Market Data, Insights, and Competitive Assessments.
