just got new job as VP Marketing and they want to give me a blackberry because.."is a precedent and what it means to the support and security structure going forward".  how do I argue this - can't go back to BB.  thanks

    Geoff, it doesn't sound like a different job is an option...the perception in some circles is that the Blackberry with it's associated infrastructure is a more secure solution than iOS devices and their use of Exchange Active Sync...though the fact that all BES traffic is routed through a RIM NOC makes me nervous...some of our users, before we permitted the use of iOS devices several years ago, had a corporate Blackberry, and a personal, bring-your-own-device iPhone...is a BYOD iPhone an option..perhaps your company would re-imburse you but still connect you to the mail system...
