Enterasys Mobile IAM gives companies additional control over deployment of mobility solutions within the corporate environment. Together, the partnership delivers an unrivalled ability to deploy, support and manage mobile enterprise solutions.
Chris Hummel , chief commercial officer, Siemens Enterprise Communications: "BYOD and the Consumerisation of IT is a primary focal point for CIO's.
