Does BlackBerry still have an advantage over other devices when it comes to security?
At first, the only mobile device my company supported for employee use was BlackBerry. Then we added iPhones. Last year, we added Android, and now it is pretty much an open house party. Come on in, everyone, the data keg is out back!
From an IT perspective, it does add some headaches just having more than one OS/hardware combination, and BBs are the easiest devices for us to lock down and manage application use, but I haven't really seen the walls come crashing down like some people predicted when our BYOD policy became more liberal.
I'm not trying to beat up on poor ole RIM, they have enough problems these days. But, the number of new BlackBerry activations that I have seen this year has dropped way off compared to the past. I have to wonder if their raison d'être has faded. How much more secure are BBs than the competition these days? Is it still even a legitimate selling point?
