    As a mobile professional for a fortune 100 company I can say that while Apple has made some strides this year it is not quite ready for major deployment. What good is the ActiveSync policies when anyone with knowledge of jailbreak can circumvent any policy we want enforced?



    Apple needs to address these things to equal what Blackberry provides via BES:



    Device management (policy, reporting)

    Device encryption (soon to becoming regulation in many states) - presently it's not even possible.

    More wireless providers - not everyone wants at&t

    Ability to lock down Itunes and AppStore - no company wants to manage and update itunes
