Both systems can enhance mobile device security at different levels. Typically, a mobile device management system provides for standard device management features such as configuration management, backup capabilities and remote wipe, along with logging and reporting. The enterprise application store provides for the capability to safely test and deploy chosen applications. As such, the company has greater control over the mobile device application environment. It can ensure the integrity and security of the applications as well as deliver a better user experience along with greater productivity. Meanwhile, enterprise application stores can be a particular advantage for heterogeneous device platforms.

We recently asked readers from where they most often remotely connect to their corporate servers. Hotels took in over 43% of the vote, followed by cafes and restaurants with 22%. Votes were split 13% each on connecting from tradeshows and en route transportation, like airplanes, buses and trains. But from these places, we’re curious, which presents the biggest remote access problem? For instance, do you avoid remote access from hotels because your VPN gets blocked? Is the constant switch from connection to connection while in airports too unwieldy to handle? Let us know which remote access locations give you the biggest headaches – and feel free to elaborate in the comments.
