MDM for BYOD is dead - feedback from the frontline
Conclusion: Organisations which have gone down the Mobile Device Management (MDM) path with a view to enabling their staff to bring their own device (BYOD) are discovering the shortfalls of this device-control approach. A BYOD device is not a corporate asset and cannot be treated as such: it should be viewed as untrusted and treated accordingly. Consequently, leading organisations are treating BYOD as an exercise in remote access. Instead of trying to control the untrusted device, focus on user experience, and controlling access to the data.
