Default Application Risks

Please Login to Remove!

I work in a company with about 500 Blackberrys connected to BES. Because of multiple requests by end users our CIO is thinking about opening the company BBs to any apps end users might want to download.

Are there really any real risks to this over and above the general risks of enterprise mobile phones? Does anyone know of any white papers/analyses or articles on the subject?

Security would be the biggest issue IMHO.

And then there would most like be all sorts of incompatibility issues.

I think the CIO is wrong, especially if the company owns and pays for the devices and the service. Just my feeling.

Most large corporations do not allow downloads without various restrictions. Once users start it will be almost impossible to curtail what they do download and unless they all have unlimited service options you will see a huge increase in use. Also productivity will possibly be lost when games are discovered not to mention social web sites like Twitter and Face book.
