Re: Infrastructure cost, development cost and security risk
<quote>secure VPN with security remediation, and application virtualisation</quote>
After a little thought I agree that this does seem a relatively secure solution.
The downdside is obviously the cost Secure VPN hardware ( probably Cisco), Cisco + RSA keys are expensive solutions to buy and maintain.
(Application Virtualisation) Terminal Services are again high end and expensive solutions.
I agree that all of the above can be done with FOSS, but that this out of reach to most small business ( they cant afford the guy with the beard) and large coporates already have enough difficulties keeping things in shape.
Wifi, OK this is affordable by most companies depending on whether or not Cisco Vlans and/or Switches are involved.
I would presume that the use of Virtualisation Application os TS requires devices that are closer to Laptops than Iphones in size.
So in the end who is actually using BYOD is your company, I can't imagine who would want to bring their own laptop and iPads/Tablets are kinda crap for TS ( Unless used in confunction with a mouse and keyboard).
I would be interested in understanding if your BYOD solution is really worthwhile ? Its an honest question.
