The iOS application architecture natively provides users much protection because all applications are "sand-boxed" in a common memory environment.  Security in iOS also extends to the physical attributes of the iPhone and iPad.  There are no options for adding removable storage, which in effect provides another layer of protection for users. Apple also compares favorably to BlackBerry insofar as the BlackBerry IT administrator has complete control over the device, whereas in iOS, the IT department can only configure items once the user has supplied their permission.

Trend Micro, Inc a global leader in cloud-based security software and services, recently announced the release of brand new research comparing the ability of several different mobile platforms to meet the demands of use in the enterprise. The results of the research, carried out by Altimeter Group, Bloor Research and Trend Micro's own specialists, clearly show that in the opinion of the researchers, BlackBerry 7.0 scored highest across the board, ahead of (in descending order) Apple iOS5, Windows Phone 7.5 and Google's Android 2.3.     

The platforms were each scored on a combination of factors including built-in security, application security, authentication, device wipe, device firewall, virtualization and many others. BlackBerry attained the highest average score (2.89), followed by iOS (1.7), Windows Phone (1.61) and Android (1.37).
