BlackBerry 7 rated most secure operating system

http://www.technobuffalo.com/compani...r-enterprises/

Trend Micro on Wednesday named Research In Motion's BlackBerry 7 OS as the most secure mobile operating system in a new report titled "Enterprise Readiness of Consumer Mobile Platforms." The security firm compared four of the top mobile operating systems: Android 2.3, iOS 5, Windows Phone 7.5 and BlackBerry 7 and found the Waterloo-based company's platform best met the demands of enterprise users.

BlackBerry 7 scored a 2.89 rating, which was based on a number of factors including built-in security, application security, authentication, device wipe, device firewall and virtualization. RIM was followed by Apple's iOS 5 with a 1.7 rating, Microsoft's Windows Phone 7.5 with a 1.61 rating and Google's Android 2.3 operating system with a 1.37 rating.

Researchers from Trend Micro, Altimeter Group and Bloor Research praised the Blackberry 7 operating system for its corporate grade security and manageability, while the iPhone's lack of removable storage and Windows Phone 7.5's for overall performance were applauded. Google's Android platform received negative comments, however, with researchers claiming the platform's fragmentation has proven to be a barrier for enterprises.

The result is good news for BlackBerry 7 and certainly explains why the U.S. government purchased 400,000 devices BlackBerry devices last year. The Waterloo company may not be the most popular in consumer quarters, but it's still the best there is - at least as far as security is concerned in the enterprise market.
