    10 Myths About Virtual Mobile Infrastructure-

    Dependability

    Myth #7: VMI is too new and untested.

    Though it's new compared to MDM and EMM, VMI is far from unproven. Industries with extreme security concerns have adopted VMI. You'll see it used in defense and public safety, government, health care, banking and finance.

    These sectors struggled to ensure compliance and data privacy with conventional enterprise mobility solutions. EMM and MDM notoriously motivate "shadow IT" by restricting which applications employees may use. VMI, on the other hand, takes security out of the end user's control and puts it in IT's hands.

"Bring Your Own Device" (BYOD) has created a cluster-jam for the business world, and virtual mobile infrastructure (VMI) is the latest technology to confront this challenge. The struggle is more cultural than technological – against VMI, commentators have spun a web of myths. Israel Lifshitz, founder and CEO of Nubo, has taken on the mission to set the record straight.

According to Lifshitz, we need to reexamine VMI because conventional "enterprise mobility" has failed. Mobile device management (MDM), enterprise mobility management (EMM) and mobile application management (MAM) have all sputtered. IT professionals complain of poor user experiences, low adoption, high costs and insufficient security. It often feels like vendors are trying to band-aid device-based BYOD with a new acronym per year. That won't work.

Knowing that enterprise mobility users are overwhelmingly dissatisfied, Lifshitz examines the myths that might deter organizations from trying VMI.
