To guard against such eventualities, IT departments should begin drafting policies forbidding executives from connecting their Apple iPhones to company networks, said Rob Enderle, a principal analyst with the Enderle Group based in San Jose, Calif.
“The device isn’t secure enough, nor is it designed to run with corporate systems,” he said.
What exactly does Rob Enderle know about the iPhone other than the tech specs on Apple’s web site? (Hint: Nothing.)
谁是谁？非The Enderle Group的主要分析师？
Before the iPhone is as secure as the BlackBerry and Treo, it needs a product such as Good Technology Mobile, which is designed to securely deliver enterprise applications to mobile devicesBut now that Good Technology has been bought by Motorola, it’s unclear whether it’d be interested in creating a product for Apple’s iPhone, Enderle said.
And even if third-party developers were interested in making applications for the iPhone that would turn it from a consumer toy to a business tool, it’s uncertain whether Apple wants to go that routeThe phone is currently a closed platform, which means Apple hasn’t invited independent software vendors to develop applications for its platform.
If executives insist on connecting iPhones, then the IT department has a duty to report the violation since it could mean that Sarbanes-Oxley or other compliance rules have been broken, Enderle said.
当然，我非常希望Apple向第三方开发者开放iPhone开发我只是说封闭平台的一个好处是更好的安全性Pretty hard to run a Trojan horse if you can’t run any third-party apps at all. ↩︎
