Kandji announces $21 Million Series A

Kandji announces $21 Million Series A

Kandji, an Apple device manager like Jamf, SimpleMDM, Addigy, and Fleetsmith - That was bought by Apple last year, announced they have raised a total of $21 Million during Series A from VCs Okta Ventures, B Capital Group, and First Round Capital. Previously, Kandji raised $7.4 million.

This is on the heels of my post about Ivanti acquiring MobileIron... exactly on the 28th of last month! I feel businesses were slow to adapt to incorporate work from home - even in theory, obviously not thinking that a pandemic was coming and everyone will be temporarily full-time remote. This has created a boom for mobile device management providers (and thankfully, Mobility Engineers / Mobility Analyst) as companies now make mobile data and hardware a priority.

Even as employees start to return back to an office... Companies have started investing in the infrastructure to support remote work. FlexJob.com has compiled a list of 27 companies that have announced long-term remote work. Nationwide Insurance announced indefinite remote work for the majority of their employees and Neilsen will convert current offices to meeting places - I bet until leases start expiring and this experiment doesn't fail.

Companies must get ahead of mobile device management before a mobile cyber attack.

I do not believe that this is the last major MDM funding/purchase news we will hear in the next 6 months.
