Re: Not quite accurate
Whenever I speak to CIOs or IT execs about MDM, the biggest problem they cite isn't the technology. It's price. I remember talking to the CIO of a utility company about six months ago. His company was hesitant to roll out BYOD despite executives' demands because the cost to do it securely was really high. I can't recall the number he told me and don't want to speculate, but it was a big one! After our conversation he was off to speak to one of the bigger MDM developers, primarily to haggle on cost. Until that price dropped, he was unwilling to commit, no matter how noisy execs were.
OTOH, it's hard to imagine execs will quietly comply with this edict from IT. I'd guess they'll use their personal devices to share data, access email, and do everything else they want to do. This "shadow BYOD" opens up a whole lot more security concerns -- and costs -- than even the most expensive MDM system. Are DoD employees more apt to obeying orders? I don't know.
