SAN DIEGO -- Android is enterprise-ready through a new strategic alliance between 3LM, a subsidiary of Motorola Mobility Holdings, Inc., and a provider of enterprise-grade security, management and remote access for Android-based mobile devices across Android handset manufacturers, and BoxTone, the leader in Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM). The alliance delivers the first full lifecycle embedded security and management platform for mobile devices and applications running on the Android operating system (OS).

According to a recent comScore Inc., Reports August 2011 U.S. Mobile Subscriber Market Share on the key trends in the U.S. mobile phone industry during the three month average period ending August 2011, Google Android OS-based devices continued to gain ground in the smartphone market reaching 43.7 percent market share. Explosive growth is driving an Android BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) phenomenon as workers seek to connect their personal Android smartphones and tablets to enterprise IT networks. This consumerization of IT is driving strong demand for enterprise-safe security and management to the Android platform - to eliminate enterprise concerns associated with potential Android open source vulnerabilities.

"We initially built the 3LM solution to answer strong user demand to rapidly deploy and secure Android OS-based devices. By pairing our solution with BoxTone's EMM platform, enterprises can realize more than just security; they can manage the full mobile lifecycle from a single unified platform," said Tom Moss, co-founder and CEO, 3LM. "BoxTone brings the broad industry credentials, major installed base, multichannel distribution model and EMM platform for integrating the 3LM platform for full lifecycle enterprise mobility management for Android."
