An Enterprise-Minded Impression with iOS 14 after Public Beta 3

Enterprise-Minded Impression

Originally, I was going to write something up about the new MDM controls for iOS, but they just weren’t that compelling.

Mobile Jon: Moving Onto the Next Level

Whole new world

Since the inception of this blog, it has become very rewarding for me. I never would have guessed that a few rando’s from AirWatch saying “Do you have a blog?” “You should get a blog!” would have turned into something that has been moderately successful for me.

UAG-finity and Beyond

Recently, the Unified Access Gateway (UAG) 3.6 was released and our fear has come true… UAG is now the Super Edge for VMWare. Content Gateway, Tunnel, and now SEG are all part of the VMWare gateway product. There’s no question that its a very divisive product for true and not so true reasons, but let’s […]

After spending a few years as one of the pioneers of VMWare Identity Manager (VIDM), and speaking about identity a few times there is one thing that people often reach out to me about.
