Apple iPhone and iPad at IBM

  1. 1. IBM CIO Workplace Center of Excellence Using an Apple iPhone, iPod Touch & iPad at IBM © 2010 IBM Corporation
  2. 2. IBM CIO Workplace Center of Excellence The need for change  Employees are becoming increasingly mobile and require the ability to work anywhere, anytime from any device  IBM has a production BlackBerry smartphone service with 27,000 users worldwide which is less than 7% of the IBM population. Why so few users? –Access is rigidly controlled by management  Employees are requesting additional mobile options beyond BlackBerry (e.g. Apple iPhone) as well as tablets (e.g. Apple iPad).  Mobility is treated an as additive service instead of a core service and management can turn off access to control costs. If an employee is willing to purchase a device and voice/data service, IBM should fund the internal service costs 2 © 2010 IBM Corporation
  3. 3. IBM CIO Workplace Center of Excellence IBM CIO policy Employees are permitted to use personally owned client hardware for business purposes with management approval provided that IBM Security requirements (ITCS300) are adhered to. IBM Corporate Instruction 128 governs expense eligibility. 3 © 2010 IBM Corporation

  9. 9. IBM CIO Workplace Center of Excellence Security  Relevant standard is ITCS300. Lotus Traveler with LMC clientless VPN is compliant. Cisco VPN with full w3 access is not compliant  Device locked after 15 minutes, 90 day password expiration, device wipe after 10 invalid entries –Issue open with Apple where device lock can't be set to 30 minutes  Set by iPhone security profile created by IBM which also includes VPN settings –Manually installed by user today. Potential Lotus Traveler device management in the future –Without policy, iPhone only has PIN password which is not ITCS300 compliant  While 3GS devices include data encryption, the implementation does not meet IBM requirements and not approved for SPI data. It is hopeful that OS 4.0 will address this issue 9 © 2010 IBM Corporation
