we evaluate Datasync mobility pack in order to sync our mobile devices. We currently use GWMS and need a new solution.

We are seeing errors for all our user. The error looks like:

So no user ever sync's successful. I do not want to debug some python scripts. Anyone also has this error?

Additionally: I like the architecture of the solution, but security seems to be not in the foreground. No kill-pill, no re-authentication after n-hours, no client-certificates. Is security planned for datasync? What are your suggestions on securing datasync.

Thank sou,
