Business leaders unable to contain and manage the burgeoning mobility trend occurring under their noses are certain to welcome an initiative launched by Exclusive Networks UK, according to its Country Manager Graham Jones (pictured).
"With as many as 82% of employees now using multiple mobile applications for work purposes the enterprise IT environment continues to grow. With that comes a wide range of challenges," he stated.
"Coupled with the explosion of Shadow IT - systems, software and other technologies installed without IT approval - these trends are putting organisations on the back foot."
In a move to put control back into the hands of businesses Exclusive Networks UK has introduced Disruptive Enterprise Mobility, a new framework that enables resellers to work more effectively with their customers on creating tailored mobility strategies.
"The scheme brings together a range of complementary vendor technologies which, when combined, allow IT teams to address challenges posed by the five core pillars of enterprise mobility - connectivity, user, devices, application and data," added Jones.
"With this initiative we are adding value by giving our resellers the tools to help their customers create a secure, scalable and flexible environment in which they can embrace change.
"This, in turn, will help resellers expand their mobility offering and increase margin potential."
Participants in the initiative include Aerohive, Aruba Networks, Druva, Elastica, FireEye, Fortinet, Lookout, MobileIron, Netskope, Palo Alto, SafeNet and SecureAuth.
Disruptive Enterprise Mobility will be launched to channel partners with a set of sales and marketing tools including information sheets, an email campaign, an infographic and a video.
