18. april 2012 - Trend Micro today announced the release of brand new research comparing the ability of several different mobile platforms to meet the demands of use in the enterprise. The results of the research, carried out by Altimeter Group, Bloor Research and Trend Micro’s own specialists, clearly show that in the opinion of the researchers, BlackBerry 7.0 scored highest across the board, ahead of (in descending order) Apple iOS5, Windows Phone 7.5 and Google’s Android 2.3

Highlights of the findings
The platforms were each scored on a combination of factors including built-in security, application security, authentication, device wipe, device firewall, virtualisation, and many others. BlackBerry attained the highest average score (2.89), followed by iOS (1.7), Windows Phone (1.61) and Android (1.37)

The findings are summarised below:

Nigel Stanley, Practice Leader – Security at Bloor Research and one of the report’s authors, said “Security people I work with are scared witless by consumerization and the rapid adoption of these devices. Aside from the technical challenges, organisations need to understand the importance of a decent mobile device security policy and supporting user education.”

Raimund Genes, CTO at Trend Micro and one of the researchers who produced the report, commented: “Against the growing, unstoppable backdrop of consumerization and BYOD, every mobile device is a risk to business. What is interesting in these results is that, whilst some mobile platforms have evolved very noticeably along enterprise lines, there is still a strong ‘consumer marketing’ legacy in some quarters and this is negating some of the progress made on the enterprise front. Indeed, some of the attributes we have examined in the report are still firmly ‘enterprise-unready.’ ”

The report is available here

It forms the first in a series of announcements from Trend Micro in the run-up to, and during, InfoSec 2012

These announcements will also include the unveiling of brand new industry research by Forrester into the cost and value to businesses of consumerization/ Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)

InfoSec 2012 takes place on 24th – 26th April 2012, at Earls Court, London. Trend Micro’s stand is E10 and will contain live demos of the Trend Micro solutions that address the challenges of consumerization and BYOD.
