On Corporate Security and the iPhone

Rui Carmo:

I find it interesting that IT managers in the US have stated they won’t support the iPhone because it would entail (in their eyes) opening their IMAP servers to the Internet.

I had to read that twice to make sure they meant that, and I couldn’t believe IT (if you’ll pardon the pun).

Haven’t these people heard of operator managed services? There’s no need to open your servers to the Internet!
