In India, there are 40 AER devices and 40% of them (16) are from Nokia Mobile. Motorola is ranked second, both globally and locally in India.
It’s also interesting to point out that some manufacturers have their own security solution, with the most famous probably being Samsung’s Knox.

A big selling factor for Nokia Mobile smartphones in enterprise is that there is at every price point a Nokia device belonging to the AER program, so security doesn’t have to come at a huge cost. Nokia Mobile also has a dedicated “enterprise” section on their website for companies to check the device and contact for a deal.
