42Gears is a privately held software company headquartered in Bangalore, India offering enterprise mobility management and Unified Endpoint Management system tools to customers via software as a service and on-premises software.

Company History[edit]

42Gears was founded in Bangalore in 2009[1] by software engineers Onkar Singh and Prakash Gupta.[2][3]

In 2017 the Manchester Evening News reported that "more than 7,000 companies in 100 countries around the world use 42Gears’ Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) solution for mobile applications."[4]

As of 2019 the company maintains offices in Fremont, California and Manchester, UK as well as Bangalore.[2][4][3] A 2019 Gartner report states that "42Gears enjoys a global presence, with its solution increasingly deployed to advance digital business and digital workplace initiatives. The solution is known to cater to the needs of multiple verticals, including education, healthcare, retail, financial services, hospitality, airlines, telecommunications and manufacturing."[5] According to Forrester Research, in 2019 their top three verticals (by revenue %) were healthcare, retail, and education.[6]


42Gears' primary objective is to improve workforce productivity and reduce device maintenance costs. 42Gears offers a range of enterprise mobility management (EMM) and unified endpoint management (UEM) solutions (offered as either software-as-a-service or on-premises software) which are used by businesses to manage their mobility deployments.[2] 42Gears works with smartphones, tablets, printers, rugged devices, laptops, wearables and desktops.[2][7][8]

42Gears has progressed from a focus on managed and locked-down devices to support for bring your own device (BYOD) and corporate-owned, privately enabled (COPE) devices and is used by organizations that seek a UEM solution to manage a diverse array of company-owned PCs, mobile devices, ruggedized devices and wearables in a single console, with support for nontraditional, legacy and emerging platforms.[5]
