Default Why, specifically/technically, is Blackberry OS more secure than iOS or Android?

You always hear "Blackberry is more secure than the iPhone". That's why they still dominate the Enterprise. I'm trying to understand why from a technical standpoint. What is it about the way Blackberry OS is designed that makes is more secure than iOS?

I've read the articles on iOS that tell of Safari-based hacking through a simple click, how the entire encryption scheme was busted in iOS3 simply by plugging it into a machine running Ubuntu, etc.

Does Blackberry OS do a better job of sandboxing the OS or apps? Do they have better software encryption? You also hear "Blackberry was built from the ground up with security in mind"...what does that even mean?

Not trying to start a war...this is purely for research purposes
