iPad Security is an Enterprise-size Headache
Just when IT departments got a grip on the iPhone support, here comes the iPad.
The general consensus is that we'll be seeing the iPad in the enterprise as part of the emerging mobile office. According to Enterprise Mobile Today, the lack of security and management features could cause headaches for mobile managers and IT as it offers no VPN or or Microsoft Exchange support .
"'Just when the iPhone finally became more palatable for IT,' he said, 'now they have another Apple device to worry about.'
"For instance, there's no support for setting up a VPN, it's not compatible with ActiveSync or Microsoft Exchange, it doesn't allow for complex password protection and the iPad cannot be remotely wiped or locked if it's lost, Hazelton told EnterpriseMobileToday.com.
