Good Technology has published its latest enterprise mobile application adoption numbers, revealing that iOS accounts for two-thirds of the enterprise market with a 67% share. Meanwhile, Android closed the gap on its biggest rival by rising five percentage points to sit at 32% market share. 

Windows Phone trailed behind in third place, although its presence is largely insignificant given it has a paltry 1% market share. BlackBerry’s share of the enterprise market was not disclosed, as the Canadian company uses its own servers for corporate purposes.

This latest research data covers the second quarter, reflecting a three-month period ending June. While Android was able to make up some ground during this time, the recent Apple-IBM partnership could prove beneficial to iOS strengthening its lead in the enterprise market.

In terms of specific devices being activated in the enterprise, smartphones were more prominent than tablets. Android smartphones made up 30% of all devices activated in the enterprise during the quarter, while iPhones accounted for 51% of total activations.
