Techie muscle flexing? Maybe controlling their assets is the phrase I would use.
Actually I purchased the device and pay for all costs associated with it, including the one-time license. My company is in the midst of a cost-cutting initiative and this is the only way they're allowing BES access.
Even though I own the device and pay all the ongoing charges, I can't complain too much as it was acquired based on the understanding I was on the hook cost-wise and that I was agreeing to their policies and procedures.
I guess it's my bad for assuming that my Bluetooth access would remain in place. I also understand they're going to be sending down another policy that will require a password to be entered every 30mins. Originally they said they were going to do every 10mins, but got such much negative feedback, they increased the timeout. Oh yea, and we won't be able to add any more applications.
While I don't discount the company's desire to retain control over their data, it does seem some of these edicts are done without enough consideration of the end user.
