We are on a BES.
We do not allow personally owned devices on our BES.
We do not allow external service books for Web browsing or email on our handhelds.
We require all handhelds to be password protected with a maximum of a 30min timeout.
Why BIS is bad:
It is not so much that the password is being stored on a third party server (the BIS). Which, by the way, makes the paranoid hairs on the back of my neck stick up. It is mostly because if you use it to get your corporate email, that email is no longer transmitted over a secure connection. For lack of a better word, it is scrambled, not encrypted.
