These are observations from the work we’re doing at MobileIron. Every day, we encounter lots of interesting and thought-provoking situations where just the introduction of mobile technology into an organization has created significant behavioral and technology shifts in the status quo. The world is changing. By the time my kids graduate from college and get their first jobs, they won’t use a desk phone or probably even a PC. If you believe, like us, that mobile will become the primary computing platform for the enterprise … and especially if you don’t … please comment and share your thoughts.

The Dropbox Catch-22
Sean Convery | March 5, 2014
What is the Dropbox Catch-22? First, let me ask a different question:
If an auditor had full access to your Dropbox account right now, would they find a single bit of corporate data that shouldn’t be there?
I’ve asked this question a lot, with all sorts of very senior IT folks in the room, and I have very rarely heard someone answer “no.”

Apple SSL Bug (iOS) - MobileIron "State of the Hack"
Michael T. Raggo | March 1, 2014
An SSL bug was patched on Friday, February 21, 2014 by Apple for devices older than 7.0.6. It stems from a faulty implementation of SSL and should not be construed as a bug or flaw in the SSL/TLS protocol.

By not...Continue Reading »
A Sunny Outlook on Shadow IT
Sean Convery | February 21, 2014
I’ve seen a lot of chatter recently around the topic of Shadow IT: the temptation for users to build their own IT to get around restrictive corporate policies or apps with bad user experiences.

Mobile content is probably the...

Why six predictions? Well, I didn’t want filler just to get to the traditional ten, and the sixth predication was TOO good to omit to chop it down to five.
