Its a known fact that RIM has always prided themselves in having a very secure platform for their enterprise customers, and have worked hard to maintain that through the years. Not long ago, a internet security company, Trend Micro, conducted a test to test the security of various Mobile OS’s and their suitability for enterprise use. As expected, RIM’s BlackBerry 7 took the trophy with a variety of reasons.
The platforms were each scored on a combination of factors including built-in security, application security, authentication, device wipe, device firewall and virtualisation; BlackBerry gained the highest average score (2.89), followed by iOS (1.7), Windows Phone (1.61) and Android (1.37).
The BlackBerry 7 platform’s superior security was a key driver, with it scoring highly in the fields of application security, authentication, device wipe, device firewall and virtualisation as well. Researchers from Altimeter Group, Bloor Research and Trend Micro found that the corporate-grade security and manageability of the platform makes it the ultimate mobile solution for businesses.
As what Gregory Wade, Senior Vice President & Regional Managing Director for East Asia at RIM said:
“Our heritage lies in delivering enterprise-grade mobile computing. Recent innovations such as BlackBerry Mobile Fusion and BlackBerry Balance, reinforce our strength and expertise in the business market, helping us build on our leadership position in meeting the mobile communications and security requirements of public and private sector organisations of all sizes.”
