  1. Interesting read. Too bad he doesn’t talk much about iOS which is more advanced than Android in terms of security, unless you have a mobile tech team which can secure the corporate Android phones.

  2. Great article. Thanks Ronen.
    IOS isn’t that secure, despite the perception. One advantage they’ve had is that people didn’t used to bother making viruses or malware for Apple. Plus, coding for Apple sucks (compared to BB 10, at least).
    But that is all changing and apple is now in the crosshairs.
    The best thing you can say about apple security is that it is better than android.
    Which isn saying much…
