As the proliferation of mobile assets, applications and usage is transforming the workforce and workplace, the mobility management market is experiencing explosive growth:
- Number of connected devices is estimated to reach 31.1 billion by 2020

Government agencies and commercial enterprises require innovative tools for tackling the management and protection of these vital resources and investment. WidePoint Corporation (NYSE American: WYY) introduced TM2 – Trusted Mobility Management – to enable organizations to secure, manage, and analyze the mobile environment with enhanced support for their employees.
Jin Kang, President and Chief Executive Officer of WidePoint explains, “TM2 converges at the intersection of WidePoint’s proprietary, industry leading Telecom Lifecycle Management (TLM), Mobile and Identity (IdM) Management, and Digital Bill Presentment & Analytics solutions. Merging these solutions into a customizable offering to simplify and secure the provisioning and experience of enterprise mobility management is the idea of TM2.” WidePoint was established in 1997 as a technology holding company.
WidePoint has grown from individual small businesses to a public company operating within the microcap environment, emerging as a leading provider of trusted technology solutions. The company has coalesced around providing Tm2.
Mr. Kang states, “TM2 is a set of three integrated services that are critical to large enterprises that need to manage, secure, and gain visibility into all aspects of their mobility assets. It’s not enough for an enterprise to implement one or two of these three services. By delivering these services in an integrated fashion by subject matter experts utilizing a state-of-the-art service delivery portal in a secure environment, TM2 consolidates and revolutionizes mobility management.”
WidePoint is the leading provider of customized TM2 solutions to the U.S. public sector, delivering unrivaled data security for enterprise mobility management.

Disrupting the Mobility Landscape
WidePoint’s technical and operational experiences continue to shape the company’s journey. From small business roots, WidePoint focused on telecom and mobile expense management, access management, and invoice processing and analytics. Customer engagement led the company to understand that enterprises lacked tools, automation and subject matter expertise to perform needed functions. Mr. Kang recognized an opportunity to unify the company’s offering into a secure management solution. His vision for consolidating WidePoint’s solutions – TM2 – led to significant resource, talent and financial investment to earn stringent federal accreditation and credentials, enabling WidePoint to disrupt the enterprise mobility management landscape. Enterprises seeking solutions are no longer faced with needing to unify disconnected solutions. WidePoint empowers enterprises by delivering trusted mobility management that is customized and backed by enhanced security.
Enhanced Accountability, Usability and Security
WidePoint has defined and established many of the best practices being implemented by enterprise mobility and identity management programs throughout the United States. Best Practices are committed to delivering enhanced accountability, transparency, usability and security.
By combining enterprise mobility best practices of people, processes, and technology, WidePoint’s TM2 delivers the single most comprehensive solution for managing and securing mobile devices, machine-to-machine devices, and Internet of Things (IoT) devices.
ITMS™ is the backbone of TM2. ITMS™ was developed to meet the stringent data security protocols and protections required by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and U.S. Department of Defense. Key certifications and processes confirm WidePoint’s commitment to delivering a level of data security unrivaled in the mobile management industry.
“TM 2 increases accountability and delivers operational efficiencies,” adds Todd Dzyak, President, WidePoint Integrated Solutions Corporation.“TM2 combines WidePoint’s proprietary management platform ITMS™ with expert services. ITMS™ provides visibility into mobile assets and usage. ITMS™ is designed to support secure user-friendly interactions that fulfill an organization’s unique goals.”
Traditional enterprise mobile management offerings typically only manage cell phone, smartphone, and data plans. Through TM2, WidePoint manages the complete mobile inventory. WidePoint’s offering not only manages the plans and usage and optimizes an organization’s costs but also manages the lifecycle of the equipment and the software licensing. Additionally, WidePoint provides a secure Identify Management solution for the organization’s smartphones and IoT devices, ensuring that the device user and the device itself are trustworthy.
“The most common threats to an enterprise’s sensitive data are attempted by internal employees and/or their computing equipment. Loose or unenforced policies can lead to hackers gaining access to an employee’s device. If a hacker gains access to a device through an easily guessed password (or no password protection at all) then the organization’s network can be compromised,” explains Jason Holloway, President of WidePoint Cybersecurity Solutions Corporation. “WidePoint’s digital certificate solution adds enforceable access policies for access to an employee’s device. A WidePoint device certificate provides the organization’s network a validation that the device that is attempting to communicate to the servers is an approved device which has not been cloned or spoofed.”
Revolutionizing Mobility Management
“There is not another solution in existence today that has the Federal Accreditations that TM2 has achieved. What makes TM2 so disruptive? By combining security, management and visibility into one enterprise solution, WidePoint is revolutionizing the experience of enterprise mobility management,” states Mr. Kang.
Security: The integrated PKI (Public Key Infrastructure) – A set of roles, policies, and procedures needed to create, manage, distribute, use, store and revoke digital certificates and manage public-key encryption – is currently the highest level of security adopted by the Federal Government and the U.S. Department of Defense.
Management: The customizability of WidePoint’s mobility management platform, ITMS™.
And Visibility: The analytics necessary for an enterprise to gain visibility into its expenses and usage.
Mr. Kang continues, “As TM2 sets the standard for the Federal Government, commercial enterprises and regulated industries seeking a secure mobility management solution are also turning to WidePoint.”
Adapting, Configuring and Integrating Change
The mobility environment is in constant change. WidePoint Operations has implemented many internal controls and QA processes for continuous monitoring for improvement and innovation.
“Because WidePoint collects data from many different sources, WidePoint is able to validate data from the organization, from the service providers, and from API integration with various mobile applications,” says Mr. Dzyak. “These multiple points of cross data validation provide high data integrity. As a client’s processes, policies, and technologies change, WidePoint works with the client to adapt and configure its TM2 implementation to integrate those changes.”
WidePoint has also established a strong Partner Solution program to vet new technology solutions. WidePoint remains vendor agnostic and recognizes that even though there may be a dominant solution today, competitors will inevitably arise in the marketplace. What may be a good solution today may not be the best solution tomorrow.
