Re: How is this company still in business?
said by gigahurtz:Honestly, for larger corporations, I think they might be around for a while. With lots of proprietary information out there in that realm, there is no other vendor/phone that supplies the security and encryption that the blackberry gives. Additionally, I know of no other phone/vendor that allows for the control over the phones that Blackberry gives either.
I just don't understand how Blackberry still exists. I know "they're enterprise friendly" but Apple/Android has become much more enterprise friendly with newer updates. Blackberries are outdated and as made very clear from this post, unreliable.
said by ropeguru:There are other services now that do. Good for Enterprise (available on smartphones) is overly secure actually. They have the admin option to not even let it run on rooted phones.

That's what we use here, a major financial company. I sit across from mobile support and they constantly get calls and have to tell people rooted phones are not allowed. On Android even some legit apps trigger the phone being rooted.
There is also Mobile Iron.

Sometimes rooted phones are better than unrooted ones.
1. You have more control over the phone.
2. You can install apps that the provider doesn't like (which could be anything).
3. You can set the passwords to anything on the phone.
4. You can remove the excessive crap that the providers put on the phone.
As for "unrooted phones are more secure".. Bullcrap. You should call (or google) HTC and ask them what happened when an exploit nailed some of their popular phones.

Rooted phones are no good for an enterprise that wants to control security.
