Co-CEOs: Bill McDermott and Jim Hagemann Snabe (SAP)
Walldorf, Germany-based enterprise resource planning software maker SAP got into mobile security as a result of its $5.8 billion acquisition of database management system vendor Sybase in 2010. Sybase was a pioneer in mobile device management with its iAnywhere products in 2000. SAP rebranded it Afaria and, in addition to direct sales, it licenses Afaria to distributor Ingram Micro. Gartner praises Afaria's container architecture and application development tools. SAP Afaria Cloud is the company's SaaS product. The company also has a partnership with Mocana for secure mobile app management capabilities, including containerization.
