If you’re confronted with a choice between the best and three of the rest, here are some things to think about:

  1. If they tell you “we’re FIPS, Nukona’s not”. Well, Apple has certified both their hardware and software AES encryption for iOS5. Nobody else has. There is another vendor who certified for 3.1.3, just in case you’re still running that version of iOS.
  2. If you want MDM, you probably fall into one of two camps: (a) you want simple & easy to use, or (b) you want the full-blown MDM feature set. If the former, you can just use ours at no extra cost. If the latter, go get a top-tier MDM solution, don’t settle for also-ran. We can co-exist with...

"iPads, iPhones, Android, oh my! More employees are bringing their own devices to the office and connecting them to the corporate network. The practice poses a security risk to the network as well as a data loss risk if devices get lost. Imagine if your banker carried your social security number, account number and PINs on his iPad that he carted around everywhere with him." Quotes the website.

A few weeks back, Microsoft provided a glimpse at their new Windows 8 operating system. One of the most notable features was the new user interface.

Windows 8 will feature Microsoft’s Metro user interface. Users of the company’s Zune and Windows Phone 7 products should feel right at home since this is the user interface they have grown accustomed to. On the surface, this demonstrates how Microsoft is attempting to make their flagship operating system touch and gesture friendly for tablets.
