RIM CIO Robin Bienfait talks on mobile security, BYOD and more
Our good friend Al Sacco had a chance to sit down with RIM CIO Robin Bienfait at MobileCon this year to chat a bit about RIM, Enterprise and the mobile space. In the Enterprise space, RIM is doing great things as we go forward into BlackBerry 10. BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) and BlackBerry Balance will make for an amazing combo for business users on BB10. RIM is offering up some great tools for companies to support BYOD on not just BlackBerry, but Android and iOS as well - however RIM doesn't allow employees to use their own devices currently, even if that device a BlackBerry.
Robin notes a big part of what she concentrates on is security.
With hackers you want to make sure that they're not in your business, that they don't have access to your customers, that you're doing things to improve your products to make sure that you aren't vulnerable and that you keep your eye on the ball
Robin goes on to talk a bit about her daily chats with RIM CEO Thorsten Heins as well as the media attention around RIM. All in all it's a really great read. Head over to CIO for the full interview.
