Re: Data vs Devices
I'm with @David.  Full mobile virtual or thin client is a step forward because for some data it's ok to have 100% on the remote network, for other data it is not.  I'm old school enough that I don't want to give up total control and ownership of my stuff.  I WANT My data locally.  Enterprise security needs to revolve around the data and that's going to cost us some convenience.  I don't think IT is going to be able to "relax" anytime soon though.

Re: Data vs Devices
Except that complete virtualization = 100% dependence on the network, and offline access is one of the things users prize most about their mobile devices. I don't see users surrendering willingly to this tech imperative until the last mobile data dead zone is wiped from the face of the earth.

Re: Data vs Devices
I suspect the tendency for IT folks to manage assets makes it easy for MDM vendors to pitch device management tools when what we really need is for devices to show us a picture of what's on a secure, remote server in the cloud so we see what we need to on our device, and intereact with the server, without actually putting data at rest on our devices.

Re: Data vs Devices
I think this is a great idea. It's a much better option than MDM. While I like MDM for a lot of reasons, I long have thought that it did not do enough to stem some of the serious and critical issues that could arise from a potential data leak.

Data vs Devices
The sooner we move to thin client smartphones the better.
