Say what

"The company [Microsoft] faces stiff competition in the MDM arena, not least from Apple and Jamf, making the issue all the more awkward."

They do face competition, but neither of these companies are competing in a way that they avoided this problem. That's because both products only work on Apple devices. Jamf's is even partnered with Microsoft so they can be used together. Apple didn't have that many MDM functions until announcing some new ones recently, and even those only work on Apple products. In short, neither named competitor even runs on Android, where Microsoft's product has the problem. There are other MDM competitors who can operate on Android and therefore claim superiority on the basis of this bug. Why were Apple and Jamf called out here when they're unrelated to the issue?
