Is your company aware that by only using Active Sync on iPhones and Android that they are opening themselves up to compromised data? Active Sync provides little security compared to other platforms. Your IT admin should be using BB Mobile Fusion, BES 10, Zenprise, Good, IronMobile, or another 3rd party server to block personal and company information from mixing.

For example, if someone in your company installed the TrueCaller app (or something similar) your contacts are sent to a global directory. You could be potentially allowing a 3rd party app to search your company's directory, email, etc. With a system like BlackBerry Balance you can split your personal and business applications.
