My companies security policy is very restrictive with things like: we are limited to what web sites we can access, we can't add other email addresses to device, and worst of all NO TEXT MESSAGING!! All our emails are also reviewed. We also have to reenter a password constantly to access the device (very annoying while driving) even to use phone.
With BIS i can still access word & excell files.
Can anyone think of any other negatives using AT&T BIS?
Nothing wrong with BIS, but here are some plusses for hosted BES.
Real time OTA PIM sync (all apps) means everything's current without manual intervention, and - big bonus - you can see your Sent items. (No restrictions that I've noticed with Default IT Policy BTW).
Other goodies abound, for instance everything's backed up on the server, and an EA restores all your settings incl filters etc. And then there's the useful but oddly named Remote Wipe.
If as you say, cost is not an issue, hosted BES must be the way to go.
