    Excellent article. Our policy forces a lock password of six characters with a max lockout time of one hour. If the password is incorrectly typed five times it will automatically wipe the device. So far we've only had one blackberry stolen and a couple misplaced, but the wipe handheld option from the BES is a great feature to have.

    ~i agree on this. I started a new job today and I remembered the forum focusing on network security and how all, even mem card info is available, this is pretty serious and I'm just glad my IT team is allowing the use of a bb but with strict guidelines.
