Increasingly, more and more people are taking their personal iPads to work. The other day I asked a friend who was using his iPad for work about his company’s take on that.
All he could tell me was that his IT department had install some antimalware program on his device. I asked him what would happen if the tablet got lost, he did not know.
Next time we met he told me he was no longer using his iPad for work. Why?
Well, as I suspected, they had install a program that would nuke the iPad after a number of failed passwords, or in the event it got lost, and they had not properly explained that to my friend. Mi friend has children who can easily miss the password a number of times!
Nuking devices is an almost a standard approach by IT departments, so be sure you understand what you are getting into before you happily start taking your iPad to work.
