Are you worried about the long-term viability of MobileIron’s offerings for your mobile device program? Will Ivanti try to push you into buying other point products you likely don’t use today? What would that migration look like? How will the acquisition affect your ability to get technical support and bug fixesDoes Ivanti have the resources to keep up with the rest of this dynamic market? 

With more resources moving to the cloud, along with the shift towards a more distributed workforce, you need a flexible and scalable digital foundation that enables your organization with greater productivityproactive security and simplified management.
