Someone overlooked the real BYOD issue
I work at a large corporate with a BYOD policy in place.
I would estimate that 60% of eligible hardware owners have rejected the BYOD offer (including myself).
- Because they don't want to enter an 8 digit PIN every time, and that's one that must be changed every 3 months.
- Because the device has to use a VPN for all access to corporate thingies and you cannot get a statement from your employer as to when and when not traffic is routed thus.
- Because no-one else in the family is allowed to touch your phone once you've unlocked the screen.
Blackberry is the ONLY handset supplier who's recognized the issue with a SEPARATE and ENCRYPTED partition for corporate usag, apps and data and another partition for everyday.
Other Android solutions exist but would not pass the BYOD security policy AFAIK.
Even if Apple were to finally, finally play catch-up with a partitioned solution, my own iPhone at 16GB would not have the spare memory for corp stuff, even though I could sorely use the BYOD functionality.
