BYOD security: a standards dilemma
If there’s one thing the mobile industry is known for is standards. There’s a lot of them. In networking technology you have multiple Wi-Fi standards in use, 802.11 a, b, g, n, ac. In wide area wireless there are GSM, CDMA, WCDMA, LTE. And for mobile OSes you have iOS, Android, QNX, Windows Phone, et al.
The problem for mobile operating systems is that there are too many standards–and none that have the weight in the market to become de facto (as driven by adopters), just like what happened in the PC world when it was Microsoft vs. IBM (who won that one?).
