VDI or Cloud based solutions let your sales people go rogue!

A few weeks ago, one of our best clients came do me with a dilemma.  His sales people have gone rogue!  Specifically, he said that the reps are finding ways to remotely connect to desktops from a myriad of devices using technology they are finding on the internet.
