No surprise here... I think the interesting question is: which is
worst, Android or Symbian?
RIM's BlackBerry remains the clear leader in mobile security with
market share leader Android lagging badly, a 'strengths and weakness'
analysis of the four big platforms has concluded.
Enterprise Readiness of Consumer Mobile Platforms rated each platform
on the basis of a number of criteria, including general device
security, app security, code signing, authentication, device wipe
ability, firewalling, and virtualisation, assigning each category a
score out of five.
BlackBerry 7.0 came top with an average score of 2.89, ahead of
Apple's iOS on 1.7, Windows Phone 7 on 1.61, and Android 2.3 on 1.37,
an order that corresponds roughly to the age of each platform.
