Smart phone / Tablet gift guide for the security-aware
My colleague, fellow Neohapsis researcher Michael Pearce, wrote a great article about smart phone platforms (iPhone, Android, Blackberry). He argues that you should give the platform appropriate for the security-savvy-ness of the recipient. I love that.
He writes, “Security and control are some of the main selling points of Blackberry, with the ability to completely encrypt data, tightly control what is done with the device, restrict what individual applications can and cannot do, require tunneling of any and all internet traffic through the company’s servers, control apps and much more. The downside is that this control comes at a cost, and the ease of management to keep your device secure can be time consuming for a non-enterprise user.”
