Samsung Galaxy Tab too insecure for business use, analysis finds

Apple's iPad and RIM PlayBook score higher

By John E Dunn, Computerworld UK |  Consumerization of IT, Android, Samsung Galaxy Tab

Thanks to RIM's experience in the business market, the easiest to manage as a BYOD device turned out to be the PlayBook which is ironic because it's probably the one of the three least likely to be bought by the very BYOD-business users it was supposed to be aimed at.

The iPad is easily the best compromise despite betraying its consumer heritage at times.

The Samsung, meanwhile, needs a lot of work to make it as a serious business device although in fairness Samsung might point oiut that it was not created to serve such a purpose. The question raised by BYOD is whether a simple separation of consumer (=low security) and business (=hight security) is any longer meaningful.
