Tracking Fixmo: Virtuous capabilities working incredibly well with others in the ecosystem

I am proud to be on the advisory board of Fixmo. You might think that biases me in my reporting on them. I’m a human for sure and have my own biases. But the fact is this company is knocking it out of the park in terms of both capability and value-adding partnerships with others that make their capability especially virtuous.

Fixmo has  been continuing to lead the market in Mobile Risk Management (MRM) solutions that continuously verify device integrity as well as apps. They protect devices and apps from data loss, monitor and track regulatory compliance and enable enterprise reporting and audibility. The most widely known deliverables  of Fixmo to the enterprise are in their Sentinel and Safezone capabilities.  But those capabilities have also been joined by incredible new capabilities like AppZone and Fixmo Secure Gesture.

But there is something just as important to track. Their partnerships with others in the community. Below is a review of some of their recent partnering announcements:
