KING OF PRUSSIA, PA--(Marketwire - May 22, 2012) -

With enterprise mobility demands changing as multiple new devices and operating systems enter the marketplace and employees bring consumer devices to the workplace in growing numbers, IT departments have to stay ahead of the trends to ensure the business thrives.
