REDWOOD CITY, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 09/28/12 -- The Wall Street Journal named Zenprise® Inc., the recognized leader and innovator in mobile device management (MDM), as one of the top 50 private venture-backed companies in the United States. The company was ranked #11 out of 50 and is the only mobile device management software company included on the annual list. Dow Jones VentureSource evaluated over 5,900 companies before selecting the final 50 for the recognition.
According to the Wall Street Journal article, "Key criteria for ranked companies on the list include fundraising success, recent growth in the company's value and the track record of its founders and board members. The editorial staff of Dow Jones VentureWire also reviewed and ranked the start-ups based on their knowledge of the companies' products, competition and financial performance."
"The strong demand for high-quality and innovative MDM solutions exists because organizations recognize the advantages enterprise mobility presents to their workforce," said Dr. Waheed Qureshi, Zenprise Founder, Chairman, and Chief Technology Officer. "I'm proud to work with a team committed to building the most innovative product supported by the best customer service in the industry."
This recognition builds on earlier 2012 successes. In May, Gartner placed Zenprise in the leader's quadrant of the Magic Quadrant for Mobile Device Management. Earlier this month, Zenprise introduced its next-generation MDM strategy to help enterprises run their business on mobile technology.
