Mobile Application Management and Security Company Closes 2015 with Strong Growth, New Talent and Universal App Distribution for Customers

BOSTON – January 13, 2016 – Apperian® Inc., the mobile application management (MAM®) and security company, today announced that it has enabled more than two million enterprise mobile app deployments, as the pace of mobile app development at businesses and public sector organizations continues to accelerate, and organizations look to Apperian to secure and distribute their enterprise apps. This has fueled growth, with Apperian doubling its recurring revenue run rate and more than doubling the size of its average contract value in 2015. “In 2015 we saw a notable shift in the how the market is approaching enterprise mobility programs,” said Brian Day, President and CEO of Apperian. “Organizations are now turning to app-centric security and management to augment, and at times replace, traditional EMM and MDM-based systems. Security and management at the app level increases overall security and enables protected and managed apps to reach 100 percent of the extended enterprise. By setting the industry standard for mobile application management, we are well positioned to see continued growth acceleration throughout 2016 and beyond.” Starting 2016 with Strong Momentum In 2015, Apperian made several significant product enhancements, including support for universal app distribution, which enables customers to deliver critical enterprise apps to 100 percent of users through any distribution channel. By executing strongly on its strategy of providing managed and secured apps that can be deployed anywhere, without requiring mobile device management (MDM), Apperian has met a growing market demand and seen impressive growth over the last 12 months:
  • Doubling its annualized recurring revenue
  • Increasing its average deal size by more than 130 percent
  • Growing provisioned users by nearly 120 percent
  • Completing a $12 million Series C funding round
  • Adding Fortune 500 and large enterprise customers to its roster, including, Alaska Airlines, Electronic Arts, Emory Healthcare, PostNL, and Toyota Motor Corporation
Apperian also recently hired Chris Hazelton, an industry analyst and thought leader with over 10 years of experience in the enterprise mobility space, as Director of Product Marketing and Strategy. Chris was most recently Research Director for Enterprise Mobility at 451 Research and led one of the largest market research teams dedicated to enterprise mobility. At Apperian, he will take an active role in helping to drive the company’s positioning, go-to-market strategy and platform evolution. “As an analyst covering enterprise mobility, I observed firsthand the value of app-centric security and management to the enterprise,” says Hazelton. “That value comes from providing government-grade security while reaching 100 percent of potential and intended users, from the C-suite to part-time contracted workers. I saw device-centric technology vendors struggle to achieve this without first requiring MDM. Apperian’s ability to secure and deploy apps to anyone is what drew me to the company. No other enterprise mobility management offering has the reach and scale that Apperian offers.” Apperian also recently published a report, “Deploying Mobile Apps That Matter: 2015 Enterprise Mobile App Trend Report,” based on several industry surveys and findings from analyzing patterns across its data warehouse of more than two million enterprise mobile app deployments.
