Is your BlackBerry as secure as the president's?

Any of my friends can tell you, I already preach to them about using their mobile devices without considering the security issues surrounding that hardware. So when the hubbub erupted about President Obama's prized BlackBerry - and his lack of willingness to part with it - I was intrigued about how the situation would shake out. I was also interested in how vendors would take advantage of the situation. One vendor, CA, quickly presented their overview, reiterating the role of its channel partners in educating customers. It also outlined the market potential for security VARs that can help customers address the needs of their mobile workforce.
