Chinks show in the Blackberry armour amongst banks’
The Banks’ loyalty to Blackberry is showing weakness for the first time. I know of one bank where the senior executives all use ipads. This will be driving bank IT security folks crazy because they have to consider a web based model versus the safe locked down RIM model.
While many of the country’s bank’s and government agencies remain loyal to RIM devices, the study found the first indications of a more flexible approach at Toronto-Dominion Bank. David Codack, TD’s head of employee technology said the bank was re-assessing its BlackBerry-only policy in favour of allowing employees to use personal Apple and Android devices for corporate e-mail.
