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.
