A letter from Mark Lorion, President & General Manager of Apperian.
Dear Apperian Customers and Partners,
Today is a big day in Apperian history. We are excited to share that Arxan Technologies has completed its acquisition of Apperian. Together, we will establish a new bar for enabling organizations to truly leverage the full potential of apps -mobile, IoT, desktop, and server- and reaching all possible users and devices. By securely deploying any app to any device, we’re able to reach users and devices in a secure way simply not possible with traditional technologies.
From the day of our founding, Apperian has taken a different approach from most others in the industry. While other vendors were focused on locking down mobile devices, Apperian developed an ingenious way to apply security and management policy at the app level. This enables apps to travel safely wherever they are needed and, as a result, we’re able to reach 100% of all possible end users – whether or not the device is enrolled in a corporate device management solution. Hundreds of enterprise customers have entrusted us to enable nearly three million app deployments… and that number will continue to increase.
The marriage with Arxan is a natural one for us and we believe the time is right. Arxan is the trusted global leader in mobile and IoT application attack prevention and self-protection. We share a similar vision, values, and a common philosophy. We both put customers at the center of our universe and truly partner with them to ensure their success. We believe app-level security and management is superior and will ultimately unlock the massive potential that apps will provide.
We’re deeply honored by what we’ve built in conjuction with our customers and partners and are thrilled to take our mission and platform to the next level. We plan to continue to run Apperian the way we have always run Apperian: guided by serving customer needs and pushing the envelope of what’s possible.
The Apperian product, team, and brand will continue “up and to the right” except that we’re now part of Arxan and have access to more resources. We believe this will enable us to better serve you, our customers and partners, and to accelerate our innovations even faster.
Apperian will operate as an autonomous group as part of Arxan and your day-to-day interactions with us and our team should not change.
On behalf of the entire Apperian Team, thank you for your support over the years and for entrusting us with your most valuable enterprise apps. We look forward to serving you for years to come. If you have any questions or comments (or ideas for how we can better support you!) please do not hesitate to contact me.
