    Yes, BlackBerry mobile device technology is one of the most secure networks in the country, and is perfect for protecting important business related information.

    It's funny/sad that, given what's going on in the world, we still have to ask "If security were a top priority, would you...?"

    BlackBerry is like Novell - far superior technology in so many ways yet they have a lapse in marketing (or whatever) and no one buys into it any longer. Hopefully things will turn out better for BlackBerry. I really do think they have some amazing competitive differentiators in the mobile space.

    Kevin's reply is best. What do you mean IF security were a top priority? Shouldn't it be always at the top in terms of priorities? And I don't think just one mobile solution is going to solve a security issue. The problem with keeping an organization and its data secure lies with people, systems and the environment. Nobody is really hacking into the database of knitting communities because the payoff isn't there. But they are hacking Sony and banks and shopping sites. So better measures need to be implemented for the targets that are rich in data value.
    But let's go back to people. They are the weakest link in any security system, so address that. Train your people to behave securely. Don't allow BYOD across the enterprise without a very good reason. And find a system that keeps everything locked down - yet accessible. If this is blackberry, then fine. If it's something else use that.

    Great point, Jeff! Security's biggest challenge is people getting in its way. Kind of like Capitalism. :-)
