What about the new iPhone? It has an abundance of new features and new headaches? With the latest push of emails to your iPhone, how many more network issues will this create?
With the iPhone, you can download, pictures, music, and applications – how many of these will have undetected viruses or Trojan horses? As executives demand more technology, do you have enough security in place to prevent such disasters to your network? How much downtime can you afford?
In a SAS70 audit, wireless networks and the related controls are normally tested. Testing of phone connectivity to internal networks and the related hazards are not normal considerations.
I would recommend standardization of cell phones. Chose a cell phone that meets business needs and provides basic communication access for employees. Enact most security features to prevent rogue viruses from attacking your network. The phones should only sync with your business Exchange server and not the employee’s personal contacts or emails.
