Last week’s annual RSA Conference attracted over 350 exhibiting companies, each anxious to reveal the latest and greatest advances in information security. While “Big Data” was a primary theme at the show, mobile ISVs focusing on security may have stolen the spotlight as we saw a number of high profile vendors announce new partnerships, marketing initiatives, product offerings, and technological advances in mobile security. Below, we’ve highlighted several announcements that caught our attention for the impact we expect to see on the ecosystem of mobile security vendors and solutions.
Mobile Security Partnerships Announced
In the mobile ecosystem, a vendor’s strength is largely derived from the enhanced capabilities and integration enabled by relations with key partners. Just in the last few months we’ve seen IBM partner with Juniper Networks (IBM Broadens its Mobile Services Portfolio with Juniper Partnership), and then saw Juniper acquire security startup Mykonos Software – we expect to see trends like these continue as startups are continuing to drive innovation and bring powerful, differentiated products to the market.
