Although Citrix of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., is yet to officially comment, sources have indicated that a deal with the California-based firm – which was founded in 2003 – will be inked as soon as tonight.

Zenprise, which recently signed a UK distribution agreement with Wick Hill, is one of only five outfits positioned in the top-right-hand corner of Gartner's Magic Quadrant for MDM alongside Good Technology, MobileIron, AirWatch and Fiberlink.

A source close to matters said he understood staff at the vendor would be informed of the deal this evening.

Gartner predicts the MDM market will be worth $500 million this year.

A Citrix representative said he was unable to comment on the rumors, while Zenprise could not be reached at the time this was published. ChannelWeb will bring you the full details as they break.
