    Well it’s been known that Apple is wanting to take a bite out of RIM’s enterprise share.

    Their recent security breach of over 100,000 ipads was probably not the best way to show its corporate capabilities. But it looks like they’ve hired an expert to help in that area.

    As Apple gains a bigger foothold among business users, the computer giant has reportedly hired former Navy officer and national security analyst David Rice in a likely bid to increase trust in its devices.

    Rice, currently executive director of the Monterey Group, a consulting firm, is author of Geekonomics, a study of how software vulnerabilities cause major problems, such as a deadly 1996 plane crash, the massive U.S. power blackout of 2003, the hacking of T-Mobile’s servers in 2004, and errors that caused Toyota Priuses to shut down at highway speeds in 2005.

    iPad/iPhone has the best chance of digging into RIM’s market share. Seems Android is lagging quite a ways behind.

    The good news for Google: CIOs seem to be very fond of Android devices, which accounted for 30% of net new devices deployed by enterprise users in the fourth quarter of 2010.

    The bad news for Google: CIOs are infatuated with Apple’s iPad and iPhone, which rushed into big corporations at more than twice the rate of Android devices as iOS units accounted for 65% of Q4 enterprise activations.

    To be fair, I don’t think Google is as obsessive about the enterprise market as Apple.

    i think google and apple are both at least 5yrs away from matching the security levels as rim.

    its much harder to penetrate the enterprise market than it is to penetrate the consumer market.

    looks like rim got it right from the start

    I think its hilarious that there was a security breach of that many iPads. Although Apple is definitely late to the security and enterprise game, at least they are making an effort. But since they are just starting it will definitely take a while, if ever that Apple can compete with RIM on a strict security/corporate basis.

    Everyone should take a page from RIM and make sure their security is top notch.
