IT departments continue to struggle with unmanaged devices that employees bring to work and connect to their corporate networks. In particular, data security is one BYOD concern, and for good reason. IT departments usually can’t test every type of mobile device to determine if it’s up to par in terms of their organizations’ performance and security standards.
Virtualization technology, particularly VDI, doesn’t always translate well into mobile environments either. Generally, the applications aren’t optimized for touch interfaces, resulting in a less-than-ideal user experience. Also, not all mobile devices support the same VDI clients, so administrators have to manage multiple client-based access apps on the endpoints.
