re: MobileIron Brings VPN-Like Tunnels To Mobile Security
What applications from the AppStore can be "wrapped"? Does this require each app like Good Tech to be specifically compatible ? Daz

BitzerMobile has already beaten MobileIron to the punch here but Bitzer's BEAM 2.2 enterprise mobility platform is built around a security focus. BEAM 2.2 features single sign-on, encryption, and two-factor authentication are offers considerably more security than this new MobileIron product. Bitzer's core apps are offered directly inside the container to provide a much better user experience for end users. Bitzer's BEAM 2.2 is available today, the story above doesn't provide details on availability or pricing for MobileIron...is this product even shipping?

re: MobileIron Brings VPN-Like Tunnels To Mobile Security
For years, security experts have stressed the need to get security controls and policy enforcement as close to the data as possible. Mobile Iron's approach seems like it's taking steps in that direction. In fact, the ability to enable/disable functions like cut-and-paste sounds a lot like enterprise rights management. On the downside, ERM never took off because trying to create policies that protect content without making that content totally unusable to workers is an ugly, complex mess. I'm curious to see how this plays out.
