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.
You have no real added security using a Z10 with BES10 over JUST EAS on the Z10, just policy administration and Balance. BES10 uses EAS and no other security or added encryption over EAS. You can also remove most app permissions right on the Z10 as well if you so choose.
