This is quite interesting! Big corporations often rely on an internal network protected by all kinds of firewalls and VPN tunnels. It's probably pretty safe but not very convenient for employees who aren't sitting in the office full time. By switching over to a primarily device/user based security, an employee can have access to everything he or she needs to perform their work, while being able to work from pretty much anywhere.
Is the device/user based model as safe as the internal network approach? I guess time will tell.
To make it even more powerful, it would be just awesome if more apps could be run on Android or ChromeOS devices (or iOS for that matter). I have a lot of Excel add-ins and SAP connections that simply can't be run on a non-Windows device. But what if they could? A guy can dream, can't he?
