BLOG: How Microsoft and Mobilespaces are using the cloud for MDM

Steven Max Patterson | Feb. 7, 2014
It appears that MDM vendors are betting that the consumerization of mobile apps will follow the consumerization of mobile devices in the enterprise.

Late entrants to MDM, Microsoft and Mobilespaces won't backfill missing security features into Android and iOS, but they don't have to. Apple and Google have backfilled security features into iOS 7 and Android 4.2+ that enable app developers to build more secure apps. Incumbent MDM vendors had to do a lot of backfilling to secure iOS 3.0 and Android 2.3 in 2010. That isn't necessary now.

Both the Intune service and Mobilespaces share more than a cloud service design; they appear to be betting on developers building more secure enterprise apps as the consumerization of apps follows the consumerization of mobile devices.
