Y: Here for my help, you are…yes…
A: Wise Yoda, you are.
Y: Issue security, here is. When unprotected, mobile device black hole, is like. The Dark Side entry, it can do. Data safe, it is not, so The Dark Side data, they will steal. User mobile, screwed.
A: That sounds right. . .
Y: Providers of smart security, they need. Traditional VPNs, old way they are. The Data Management Engine Force with SmartVPN® providers, this they need. Resident on mobile device, it is. Attack surface, minimized it is. Fine-grain data and DNS routing, it does. ZTNA enablement, it has. Centralized policy management, it follows. Cost and performance compared to traditional VPN or cloud connected app, it improves. Enterprise management, happy they are.

With use of Wi-Fi and cellular bonding on Data Management Engine Force, The Dark Side Dead Zones it stops. Wi-Fi and cellular connections, it bonds, so good user connectivity, always experienced it is. Connections to video, apps, GPS, maintained they are.
