Hi,

Following UAE annoucement to ban RIM data flow in the
Emirates,
my company is considering implementing iAnywhere and Afariar
to manage mobile devices. However Security is key and I
would like to compare security level achievable with Windows
Mobile devices on Afariar compared with RIM BES server.

Here is a list of security settings that must be enabled and
remotely applicable, can Afariar match them :
- End User should not be able to modify security parameters
of the system and applications installed
- force encryption of data stored on the device
- End user should not be able to install Applications
- Definition of a whitelist of accessible services (WAP,
MMS, device-to-device message transmission are prohibited)
- Disable configuration of mailboxes other than the
entreprise one
- Force password, and password complexity
- Wipe device after 5 unsuccessfull password attempts
- Device auto-locking after idle time
- Remote wiping should be possible
- Internet browsing is enabled only through company's
dedicated internet access point (proxy only, no direct
connection)
- Mass storage mode upon connection to USB port should be
disabled
- Enterprise data should not be stored on removable memory
card
- local wireless protocols are forbidden (WiFi, IrDA).
Bluetooth is authorised if pairing can be limited to
whitelisted devices (earphones, external keyboard...)

Of course, the bl**dy device now looks more like an
organizer with phone and email capabilities...

Hope someone can help.
