For the first time, the company includes data on the adoption of enterprise applications, in addition to device activations, leveraging insights from the company’s vast and diverse customer base using the Good Dynamics Secure Mobility Platform. The company reported that total device activations for the quarter rose nearly 60 percent from the same time last year, indicating that the rise of mobility continues to grow at a staggering pace and enterprises are choosing Good to protect their data, not just devices.
