IBM Acquires Fiberlink

| November 15, 2013 | 2 Comments

IBM intends to acquire Enterprise Mobility Management vendor Fiberlink.

This will give IBM the Gartner MDM Magic Quadrant leader MaaS 360 which is a cloud-based SaaS solution.  This leaves only AirWatch and MobileIron as the remaining pure-play EMM companies that haven’t been snapped up by larger enterprise companies.  Like SAP, IBM has been scooping up various mobile startups to bolster the enterprise mobility offerings.
