MacVoices #17209: Adam Engst on Security, Big Data, and Device Management

We play catch-up with Adam Engst to discuss the progress of the TidBITS Content Network, what he has been learning about the scope of the Apple presence in the enterprise market, and why it is waking up to the truth of total cost of ownership. Adam dives deep into how some companies and industries are addressing security, and the concerns of users and management alike. Managing access is different than managing data; Adam talks about how managing access is different than managing information, and what that means for business.
